Victims of Political Repression (Alphabetical List) #belarus

emeraldeyesm@...
 

Hi All,

On a Russian language website,http://lists.memo.ru/index.htm, there can
be found a published list of victims of political repression in the
USSR. The list is arranged alphabetically by last name (not location)
and includes individuals >from Belarus as well as other locations
throughout the USSR.

The information is entitled, "Victims of Political Terror in the USSR".
In addition to names, it includes birth years, religion, where born
and/or lived, when arrested, verdicts, sentences, and information
sources.

You can easily access this information by using an internet translator
(I used Google language Tools at:
http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=3DEN
using the "translate a web page" box, "Russian" to "English" then
"translate").

I was able to extract information about Jews for my personal use.

Verboczi utca Debrecen #hungary

viviankahn@...
 

Thanks to all those who responded to my query about this street in
Debrecen. I couldn't find it on any current map of Debrecen because
the name of the street has changed. Verboczi or Werboczi utca is now
Tancsics Mihaly utca. Unfortunately, Google doesn't provide a street
view so I can't tell whether the building where my relatives lived
still stands. If anyone has any information on that, please contact
me off-list.

Tancsics Mihaly (1799-1884) was a writer and journalist and, according
to Wikipedia, one of Hungary's first socialist politicians. In
addition to Debrecen, several other cities, including Budapest, have
streets named for him.

Google to the rescue! I googled the original street name and
"Debrecen" and found an article in Hungarian (Magyar Nemzet online -
The online edition of the Hungarian Nation published by the Nation

"The Verboczi Street, today Tancsics utca"

Put together, the two names are then found in countless other

Hello,

Does anybody know where to find a copy of encyclopedia Meorei Galitcia
in the Netherlands?

If case this book is not available in the Netherlands (or in Hebrew) I
would like to look up Zev BEN OURI. Spelling ouri is a transscript >from
sound. Could the the -ou- sound like in your, also be written with -ar-
in south Poland or Romenia? Or would the variation Ury make sense?

He was born around or before 1860. And he was a rabbi ( >from a line of
rabbi's ?).
Married to KAUFMANN (maybe his second wife) and had atleast 1 daughter
(my g-grandmother). His european lastname start with "Le-". (if needed
more information of list)

We are unsure where he lived between 1880 and 1940. He might have
started in Galicia Poland and later moved to another country;
Czudec Galicia
Sighetu Marmateii (Romania)
Satu Mare (Romania )
Szeged (Hungary)

Announcing the Brody Cemetery Project #rabbinic

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Dear RAV-SIG Subscribers:

Brody (Ukraine, formerly Galicia) was privileged to be the home of many
rabbinical families: including the Katzenellenbogen, Babad, Rokach,
Horowitz and Kristianpoller families and its great Kloyz scholars. For
this reason I am sharing with you an announcement of a new Brody Cemetery
Project and hope that you may be interested to contribute.

A group of Jewish genealogists researching their Brody roots have created
a long-overdue project to photograph, translate and index the 5000+
headstones in Brody's main Jewish cemetery. This cemetery was in use >from
1834-1939. Upon completion of the project all data and photos will be
donated to JewishGen's Jewish Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR)
and to Gesher Galicia for free searching by the genealogical community.
To complete this work in a timely manner we need to raise funds quickly.
A JewishGenerosity account has been established for that purpose.

The project will be done in two phases:
Phase one: The project coordinator and photographer will survey the site to
determine the extent of the work. Following the survey analysis, an on-site
project coordinator and photographer will be hired and a few weeks later,
the photography will commence along with the GPS mapping of the headstone.
(Targeted completion date - May 2011.)

Phase two: Transcribing/translating the inscriptions into the JOWBR format
in English. This includes the given name, surname, and parent's names,
Cohanim, Levi, etc. and date of death. If we have funding remaining >from
Phase 1 we will be able to hire transcribers, and the balance will be
completed by volunteers. (Targeted completion date - February 2012.)

The timing of doing the photography is critical it must be done after the
snow has melted and before spring growth begins. Jewish cemeteries
throughout the world are threatened with vandalism and even extinction. It
is vitally important to preserve information about existing Jewish
cemeteries so future generations will have the benefit of this aspect of
our cultural heritage. In addition, for many Jews, knowledge of their
family history perished in the Holocaust. This project will allow Brody
researchers to create or fill gaps in their family trees. Where vital
records may no longer exist, cemetery records are often the only remaining
evidence of a person's life. The material has the potential to be of
broader interest to scholars and educators specializing in Jewish history
and the Holocaust and specifically in the history of eastern Galicia and
the town of Brody.

Please consider giving generously so that the work may begin soon. Donations
can be through our JewishGenerosity account on either Gesher Galicia's page.
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=14

Or on the Jewish Online Worldwide Burial Records (JOWBR) page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=32

click on the box that reads: "Brody Cemetery Project."Contributions are tax
deductible for U.S. citizens. You contribute online with a credit card or
print up a form to fax or mail in with a check or credit card number. (US
currency only.)

Higher levels of donations will give you early access to these records and
the Excel files: $100+ Donations: you will receive an Excel spreadsheet with
all the information >from the headstones collected that will be going to
JOWBR in advance of the data being posted online. $250+ Donations: you will
be given access to a password-protected site to view all of the cemetery
photographs and the Excel spreadsheet. $500+ Donation: You will receive a
copy of all the photographs taken at the cemetery, online access and the
Excel spreadsheet. (Please note that all data provided to you is for private
use only, and cannot be posted online, published, or used for any other
purpose.)

Why Brody Is Important to Those With and Without Brody Roots: Many Galician
towns cemeteries no longer exist or many of the headstones were destroyed.
Brody is unique in that the matzevahs exist in the same place as the bodies
were buried. For those interested in Galician history this is a unique
opportunity to document what remains of an important part of Galician
history. Brody has a very interesting and compelling history that makes the
city important not only to those who can trace their ancestral roots to
Brody, but to others in that part of the world. The city was ideally located
near the southeastern Russian border, had access to good oxen-roads - later
supplanted by railroads, and developed into the most successful commercial
center in Eastern Europe outside of Lemberg (Lviv). During the 19th century,
Brody's Jewish population reached 88% of the city, was organized around the
centrally located synagogue but its Jewish population decreased starting
after 1880 and the mass migration out of Brody began. After the partitions of
Poland, restrictive trade laws were passed causing wealthier Jews to leave.
The remaining poor >from both the east and west fled to Brody as it was a
transportation hub and it took months if not years for many to immigrate
from Brody. Most Jews were merchants and laborers.
Please, if you have Brody ancestors or are interested in the Galician
history this is a unique opportunity to help us preserve our ancestor's
memories byphotographing the 5,000+ headstones and placing them on JOWBR
for all to access.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with translating the
headstones, please contact Ami Elyasaf whose e-mail contact is listed below.
