This is not Slovak, but appears to be a southern Slavic language
(Yugoslavia). Looks like Serbo-Croatian or Slovenian.

Good luck,

Suggestion for finding PoT submitters #hungary

Sara Wenger <sara_wenger@...>
 

I want to relay my experience tracking down submitters
of YVS Pages of Testimony. A year ago I started using
this database (before it was online). My late father
was a holocaust survivor who unbeknowst to me had
changed his identity/name in order to gain access to
Canada after the war. As far as I was ever concerned,
we/he had no surviving relative >from the holocaust. We
always thought that he was the sole survivor.

Through the pages of testimony I directly and
indirectly tracked down living relatives all over the
world! It was the shock of my life to realize that I
had relatives >from my father's side. Unfortnately, my
father never lived to see them.

Yad Vashem DOES NOT have information on submitters and
does not help facilitate this process. They did
however direct me to Batya Landsman who worked for
years tracking down missing holocaust era relatives
for the Jewish Agency in Israel. Batya is now retired
and works privately. I contacted Batya and more than
once she helped me find relatives who had submitted
PoTs. Where the person was deceased, she helped me
locate their family. I can not recommend Batya highly
enough. This is the last email I have for her:
XXXXXXXX

Good luck

Please contact Sara off-list if you want to find out how to reach Batya. Note that the Israel JGS is also able to help folks locate those who submitted Pages of Testimony.

Re: Romanian Jewish customs #romania

Neil Weicher <neil_weicher@...>
 

In the diary of his trip back to the "old country" in the 1930s, my GGF
referred to eating "Mamaliga & Brinza" (Mamaliga and cheese), and "Plachinta
Ku Brinza" (some kind of cheese pie).

Based on my GGM's cooking, cheese figured pretty heavily in traditional
Romanian dishes.

Sour cream and chives are another good addition.
