Re: Sandor FUHRAR (FUHRER) - Holocaust Claims Conf., Hungary #hungary

NORMAN FUHRER
 

We found one of our FUHRER relatives listed in the Holocaust Claims
Conference List on Jewishgen.

He is listed as Sandor FUHRAR. Code 127348 -- Doc Code 362.10 -- Page 9

Our question is how do we access the Document? We know that
Alexander/Sandor FUHRER survived Mauthausen, returned to Hungary, possibly
to Ungvar/Uzhorod or Kosice. Later lived in Haifa. He is buried in Israel,
under the name of Nathan FUHRER. He, for some unknown reason, took the name
of an older brother, Nathan FUHRER, who died while a prisoner in Mauthausen
in either 1942 or 1943.

We also have a question as to why these two brothers ended up in Mauthausen
when the rest of the Fuhrer Family went to Auschwitz, some later transported
to Stutthof.

Thank you in advance for any help and insight you can give us.

Nissim Ben Yaakov BEHMOIRAS z"l- A Grave In Jerusalem #hungary

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Siggers,
On March 8th and 9th,2007 I posted a note about the
locating the grave of Nissim Ben Yaakov BEHMOIRAS and
Gracia nee BEN BASSAT who was born in 1896 in
Adrianopol(Turkey) and was killed in WWI on the
Palestine front in 1917 while serving at the Austrian
Army(see at the SIG archives).The search was a very
interesting genealogical saga since the soldier was
buried on Mount of Olives in Jerusalem but the Chevra
Kadisha got only a fragmental info about his surname.
By a stroke of luck it was found that he lived in
Brno(now the Czech Republic) and then his correct name
was found.
Today,Nov 25th 2007 I attended a very emotional
ceremony on the Jewish Cemetery on Mount of Olives
where the Matzeva on his grave was unveiled.It was
organized by the Austrian War Graves Commission in the
presence of soldiers of the U.N. Austrian Regiment on
the Golan Heights,The Austrian Deputy Ambassador in
Israel,The Hungarian Military Attache in Tel
Aviv(Nissim was part of the Austro-Hungarian Forces on
the Palestine Front),representative of the Israeli
Defence Forces and Dr. Norbert Schwake who
by intensive research solved the puzzle.It was a
beautiful day and 90 years after his death.
The grandaughter of Nissim's brother lives in London
but could not attend.To those who are curious what was
the military job of Nissim I would reveal that as a
Turkish subject he knew both Turkish and German and
served as an iterpeter.

Re: VEISZ from Hungry, and place names #hungary

tom klein <h-sig@...>
 

two useful tools for locating old places names in pre-trianon hungary are the 1882 and 1913 gazetteers at radix<http://bogardi.com/>, and the transindex database at <http://sebok2.adatbank.transindex.ro/>.

the 1913 gazetteer is easier to use, and provides dots on a map showing locations, whereas the 1882 has just a text page listing town names for each megye, which is harder to use, but useful if you want to browse, because you only have an approximate idea of the name.

transindex is all in hungarian, but it's just a database lookup, so you can plug in your search and press enter, to get a tabulation of hit records, with new (non-hungarian) names and old hungarian names, as well as the country they belong to today. spellings include diacritical marks, in hungarian, romanian, ukranian, slovak, czech, etc., so you have to be a bit of a polyglot.

both are free to use, and i have no commercial interest in either one.
