translation needed #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Hi Gersiggers,
I found an article online in the "Dorsten unterm Hakenkruez" about my
great-aunt Frieda HUMBERG ROSENBAUM. Part of it is her life during the
Shoah. I put it in the google translator, which normally works okay, but
I'd like a better translation, if possible. Since it's not a document or
photo, I don't know how put it on viewmate. Can anyone help? Thanks so much.

Best wishes, Lin Herz Palm Bay, Florida

Re: (1) Adopted girl from Florence; (2) NUNES CARVALHO family #sephardic

Nardo Bonomi
 

1. Adopted girl >from Florence
I am wondering if anyone would know how I could find out
anything more about the chances of a Jewish baby girl >from
Florence being adopted in Manchester in that period.
Do you mean Florence (firenze) in Italy?
If yes, there was an Hospital or nursery called
"Istituto degl'Innocenti" who was in charge of the care
of abandoned babies and to give them in adoption.

The archive is very rich of registers and documents:
http://www.istitutodeglinnocenti.it/?q=content/archivio-storico
In same cases researchers have connected their family to the
mother who abandoned their babies, after hundred years.
But the Italian adoption is probably not the origin of the
Jewish blood of your g-grandmother because the Jewish
communities were very careful not to lose their babies.
An illegitimate Jewish baby would have kept in the Jewish
community and the mother would have helped not to abandon it.
I often found in Tuscany records of birth of Jewish babies
with "Father unknown". They simply lived with the mother.

2. NUNES CARVALHO family
Dear Keith and Nancy Atkinson
We are now documented back to Abraham NUNES CARVALHO
born Portugal abt 1650 who married Sarah about 1680 and
had Isaac in 1681 in Oporto, Portugal.
Which is the source of this information?
The family was active in Livorno. Isaque Nunes Carvalho
is listed in a census of the 18th century.
Livorno town had very strict links with Amsterdam.

Visit to Majorca/Mallorca #sephardic

William Yoffee
 

Visit to Majorca/Mallorca

My wife and I are planning a trip to the Spanish Island of Majorca during
Passover. We have arranged to participate in the Jewish Community's seder on
the first night, and we will try to make contact with the Xueta community.

For those who are not familiar with the history of the Jews of Majorca,
there are indications of Jews present in the Balearic Islands as early as
the 2nd Century C.E., and Jews lived there since the earliest occupation by
Arabs beginning in 902 C.E. The Jewish community became especially important
to the island's economy and foreign trade after the conquest by King James I
of Aragon (King James I of Majorca) in 1229-30. The community thrived until
all Jews were forcibly baptized in 1435, well before the expulsion of Jews
from Spain in 1492. These Conversos, also known as New Christians, were so
discriminated against and virtually quarantined that they formed a separate
community known as Xuetas (pronounced chu-eh-tas) and were not permitted to
integrate or marry within the Old Christian community. Consequently, for
over 500 years the families of the Xueta community prayed in a separate
church and intermarried exclusively among themselves. Recently, some of this
community's members appealed to rabbinical authorities in Israel for
permission to convert to Judaism, but were determined to already be Jewish
and therefor did not need to formally convert.

There are fifteen existing family surnames that are considered to be of
original Xueta families. While my surname is not one of them, Jaffe, or some
variation appears frequently in the early Aragon records concerning Majorca.
For example, in 1238, King James rewarded a number of the Jewish soldiers,
including one named Jaffia, who participated in his conquest of the island
with land grants on the Island of Majorca. He also afforded the Jewish
community special protection.

We would appreciate any information or advice >from anyone who has visited
the Island of Majorca or had contact with the Jewish Community or the Xueta
community. You may communicate directly with me at the email address below.

A Pole in German POW camp Stalag II-A #general

Peter Lebensold <peterlebensold@...>
 

Thanks to Peter Lande's reference - just over a week ago (see below) - to
the Polish Holocaust database at http://straty.pl , I have just discovered
that there was apparently a (previously-unknown) Josef LEBENSOLD interned
in the prisoner-of-war camp Stalag II-A (at Neubrandenburg, Germany).

Considering that this was - apparently - not an extermination camp, I am
hopeful that there was enough record-keeping that I might be able to get
additional information on this prisoner: date of birth, parents' names,
ultimate fate, etc.

I'd also be curious to know what a Pole might be doing at a POW camp
(Wikipedia says there were 738 Poles at Stalag II-A). Perhaps he was
serving in the Free Polish forces?

Any possible sources for further information would be much appreciated.

From: "Lande" <pdlande@...>

In the past one of the most useful Polish Holocaust databases has been Karta
Poland. This database has now been subsumed in straty.pl, a much broader
database accessible at http://straty.pl This provides information relating
to an estimated 3.5 million Poles, not only Holocaust victims, but also
soldiers, POWs, forced laborers and others. Simply go to http://straty.pl
and then Szukaj w bazie for your search.
