Ervin,

Have you tried Steve Lasky's site:
http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/

And perhaps this one -

Photographs of Jewish life in Poland collection of Wisniewski has
a major website at http://bagnowka.com
which includes nearly 60,000 photographs? some >from postcards?
of Poland. Most are pre-World War II and many are of Jewish life
in Poland. There is a search engine at the site that allows you to
search by surname or town name. Warning: A tiny note states the
search is case sensitive.

Good luck, Rachel Heller Bernstein

Requirements for children to travel from Germany on Kindertransport #unitedkingdom

Judith Elam
 

My mother, who is a Holocaust survivor, born in Leipzig, Germany, lives in
England. In August 1939 at the age of 14, she and one sister were able to
get out of Leipzig on the last Kindertransport to England. Her father also
made it out to England that same month. Her mother and 3 year old sister
were left behind in Leipzig, with the expectation that they would follow on
to England one week later when their exit papers had come through.
Tragically this never happened, and my grandmother and little aunty were
eventually deported >from Leipzig to Riga in January 1942, fate unknown.

It was only about 15 years ago that my mother told me she had always
believed she could have saved her little sister, by insisting to her mother
to let her go on the Kindertransport too, and that she would take care of
her. Thankfully my mother's early dementia has now finally released her
from this terrible survivor's guilt she has borne all her life.
My question is, would an exit visa have been required for a 3 year old to be
allowed out of Germany on the Kindertransport in the company of her 2 older
sisters (age 14 and 13), who did have their exit visas, or could she have
traveled without one? Would she have been allowed entry into England
without a visa? I too would like to know the truth about this situation. I
am named after my little aunty, so knowing the truth is important to me too.

Some time ago I created a database >from a book by Dr Bela Berstein
'Jewish freedom fighters in 1848.' (Budapest 1898,1939--In Hungarian:
A negyvennyolcas magyar szabadsag...). There are scores of Jewish
officers listed

Perhaps now we could add these names the the 'Other' censii in the AHD.

....Are there Jewish lieutenants in 1849?

Re: Jewish Lieutenants in 1849? #hungary

Yes, there were at least 10 Ornagyok, 31 Szazadosok, 37 Fohagnagyok,
93 Hagnagyok. For the entire list, see Bela Bernstein's _A
negyvennyolcas magyar szabadsagharc es a zsido (originally published
in 1898, republished by Mult es Jovo in 1998). There is a lengthy
appendix with all of the names (though I did not find a Scheiner among
them).

I came across a reference to "Scheiner fo:hadnagy" ("Lieutenant
SCHEINER") in a Hungarian text about a war in 1849. This is the right
time and in the right area (near Torokszentmiklos) for it to be one of
my relatives. Is it possible that this officer was Jewish? How could I
find out more about him? The place that I found the reference is here:

LIPNO IN PLOCK GUVERNIA #poland

Joan Parker <joanparker@...>
 

My grandfather David Goldberg was president of the Plotzker (Plock)Young
Men's Independent Association around 1932-33. Up to a point I believed
that was >from where he came, knowing that not everyone connected with
PYMIA is >from Plock, but that was the only town-name info I had. That was
until the other day the only reference to any town I had for him. His
1897 Marriage Certificate only said Poland-Russia, his 1900 Petition gave
no info other than Russia.

The other day I think I found him listed on the Rugia >from Hamburg (age 14
give or take) arriving 1890 and it showed Lipno, Poland on the manifest.
This may be a very elementary question, but how do I handle that new
information to ascertain yeah or nay? Of course this may not be my
grandfather but many things match up. His papers show only Russia and as I
said there was only the one reference to Plock and burial in New York's Mt.
Zion's Plock section. In fact his name is on the Gates to the section along
with many others.

I did check Lipno in the JG Communities and it does show 1900 Lipno as
being in the Plock gubernia, Russia and now in Poland. So where would I
concentrate my additional research for him? Was it Lipno, Poland prior
to 1900?

I will be at the conference for the full week, G-d willing and will be
attending the JRI-Poland luncheon as well as various JRI-Poland lectures.
In the meantime are there any suggestions for me to help solve this or at
least lead me in the right direction for more research prior to my arrival?

Thank you,
