historical maps: "Jews in Germany 1906," "Away from Germany 1938" SITE CITE #germany

A message yesterday to the Gesher Galicia discussion group mentioned
an online exhibit of "Jewish History on the Map," at:

http://www.siger.org/jewish-history-on-the-map

The section on the Diaspora:
http://www.siger.org/jewish-history-on-the-map/en/diaspora
includes two maps of special interest to GerSIGgers:

"Jews in Germany 1906"

http://siger.org/jewish-history-on-the-map/en/diaspora-6

Reproduced >from _Meyers Konversations Lexikon_, this map is color
coded to show the number of Jews relative to total population in
regions throughout Germany. According to the caption, Jews were well
represented in "the provinces of West Prussia, Posen and the right
bank of the Oder in Silesia, and a wide tract of land running from
Eastern Westphalia, through Hesse-Nassau, the Grand Duchy of Hesse,
the Palatinate and Baden to Alsace-Lorraine" and, outside these
regions, in Berlin, Hamburg, and other large cities.

"Away >from Germany 1938"

http://siger.org/jewish-history-on-the-map/en/diaspora-9

This map appeared in the _Handbuch fuer die juedische Auswanderung_,
an atlas and travel guide published in 1938. Described as a
"topography of escape," the book showed what countries still accepted
refugees, what visas and exit taxes were required, how much money per
person was demanded for support, and what ports were still open for
Jews to leave Europe. The exhibit curators comment, "What is not
indicated is what was to be done if the borders were closed and legal
exit impossible. This Philo-Atlas still expresses the confidence that
an orderly departure would be possible."

The atlas's publisher, Philo Verlag, was founded in Berlin in 1919 as
the publishing arm of the Central-Verein deutscher Staatsbuerger
juedischen Glaubens. Philo Verlag was closed by the Gestapo on
November 10, 1938. (Source: Encyclopedia Judaica, quoted at
http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/judaica/ejud_0002_0016_0_15720.html )

The atlas was reprinted in 1998 and can be purchased online.

Thank you to Pamela Weisberger for pointing out this very interesting map site.

Re: Searching for an M. ROTH #general

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

I finally was able to connect my great-great grandfather to the people
I believed to be his parents in NYC, who I had long had circumstantial
evidence pointing towards this. On my great-great-great grandmother
Sima NADLER and her daughter Leah Lizzie/Louise NADLER's emigration
from Iasi to NYC in 1898, they listed an M. Roth "Son-in-law" as their
contact in NYC and he was living at 1852 2nd Str. I am at a total loss
as to how to proceed and find him.

If anyone has any ideas or who might be connected to this family,
please contact me.

Dear Gersig Members,

I would be most grateful if you could help me spread the word about
relevant contacts the following link. This leads to an article
published in Berlin Council's Aktuell Magazine.

The link includes photographs of my grandmother, Dora TANNENBAUM,
in Berlin in the 1920s and 1930s. She is pictured alongside many
other girls. The groups are likely to be a mixture of school photos,
photos >from a domestic science course, and photos >from a childrens'
home.

I can forward much larger copies to anyone who may recognise either
my grandmother or another girl. A few other photographs are not
published online, but please contact me if you think they may be
relevant to your research and I will share them.

The link to Aktuell and the photos is here:
http://www.berlin.de/aktuell/13_02/suchanzeigen/aktuell_391782.html

Additionally, on behalf of a surviving relative I would like to hear
from anyone who has information on the following family:
Lucy/Lucie BEHRENDSOHN, born in Berlin in 1920. She was married to
Max ROWELSKI and they had two children, Efim and Gittel, born in
Berlin in 1939 and 1942.

With thanks, Eleanor Thom, Ayr, Scotland eleanor_thom@yahoo.co.uk

JewishGen is proud to announce its 2013 year-end update for the
Memorial Plaque Project database. The MPP database can be accessed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/
The MPP database includes the data >from plaques and Yizkor lists >from
synagogue and other organizations.
Many of these sources include patronymic information.

The database now includes more than 35,100 records >from the USA,
Israel, British Columbia, and now Morocco. These records come >from
57 different synagogues and other institutions.

We believe that the MPP is a good example of how users of JewishGen's
databases can "give back". If you are a member of a synagogue or
other organization with memorial plaques or Yizkor lists, please
consider helping us to grow this database.
You can find more information on submitting data at

JGS (NY) Meeting Sunday, December 22 at 2 PM
at the Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16th St. New York

Speaker: Professor Magda Teter.
Lecture: "The Myth and Reality of Jewish Life in Eastern Europe"

With the images of Tevye the Milkman ingrained in popular memory of Jewish society in eastern
Europe, the real experience of Jews is often lost. In her talk, Magda Teter will discuss how this 
popular imagery of Jewish life came about, and what it leaves hidden about Jewish history.

Magda Teter grew up in Cold-War Poland. She received an M.A. >from the School of Oriental Studies
at the University of Warsaw, and an M.A., M.Phil., and Ph.D degrees >from Columbia University. She
currently teaches at Wesleyan University. She specializes in early modern religious and cultural
history, with an emphasis on Jewish-Christian relations in Eastern Europe, the politics of religion,
and the transmission of culture among Jews and Christians across Europe in the early modern period.
She is the author of "Jews and Heretics in Catholic Poland" (2006),"Sinners on Trial" (2011), and 
a co-editor of and a contributor to "Social and Cultural Boundaries in Pre-Modern Poland" (2010).

The Annual Meeting and Presentation of the Slate of Officers will also take place.

In Addition: >from 12:30 to 1:30: Bring your lunch and meet with JGS members and experts in an 
informal setting to share research stories and ask questions.

Speaker: Professor Magda Teter.
Lecture: "The Myth and Reality of Jewish Life in Eastern Europe"

With the images of Tevye the Milkman ingrained in popular memory of Jewish society in eastern
Europe, the real experience of Jews is often lost. In her talk, Magda Teter will discuss how this 
popular imagery of Jewish life came about, and what it leaves hidden about Jewish history.

Magda Teter grew up in Cold-War Poland. She received an M.A. >from the School of Oriental Studies
at the University of Warsaw, and an M.A., M.Phil., and Ph.D degrees >from Columbia University. She
currently teaches at Wesleyan University. She specializes in early modern religious and cultural
history, with an emphasis on Jewish-Christian relations in Eastern Europe, the politics of religion,
and the transmission of culture among Jews and Christians across Europe in the early modern period.
She is the author of "Jews and Heretics in Catholic Poland" (2006),"Sinners on Trial" (2011), and 
a co-editor of and a contributor to "Social and Cultural Boundaries in Pre-Modern Poland" (2010).

The Annual Meeting and Presentation of the Slate of Officers will also take place.

In Addition: >from 12:30 to 1:30: Bring your lunch and meet with JGS members and experts in an
