Jan Meisels Allen
 

The U.S. State Department announced on February 6 that additional reparation
payments would be made to individuals with approved claims (386 of 867
claims) in connection with the Holocaust Deportation Claims Program which
France provided $60 million to the United States to distribute to Holocaust

settled in other countries after the war, but not those >from countries who
have their own reparations programs.

Town of either Szranetz or Valetchish #general

Phyllis Kramer
 

Judi Wagner asked for help in locating " Szranetz, Russia ,,,and
Valetchish, Russia in 1910,

I began with valetchish in the Russia empire (before WWI) using the community
pages. The phonetic default did not produce a likely town, so i changed the
query to look for towns "sounding like"...and found this town:
Volochysk, Woloczysk, Volochisk at 4932/2610 in the Ukraine. It had almost 800
jewishgennners in the JGFF! Thus a likely candidate. I looked thru the neighboring
towns and nothing sounded like Szranetz....

So I queried the JewishGen radius search,
at https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocRad.asp to look for a town nearby
(within 15 miles of 4932/2610) "sounding like" Szranetz.....repeating the town name
out loud...as i thought a clerk would write it down as it sounded, after hearing
it..I found Staromeshchizna a mile >from Volochysk...now this doesnt mean its "your
town", but the methodology is worth pursuing.

Hopefully someone will have more local information.
happy hunting...

Greetings, all.

With a great deal of help >from the Emmanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical In=
stitute (JHI) I have been able to do some intensive work on my Ajgengold fa=
mily, and I am extremely grateful for their help and persistence in trackin=
g people down. Ajgengold (and variant spellings) is an unusual name, assoc=
iated exclusively with Warsaw until the late 1800s.

The problem is that JHI and I have come to different conclusions regarding =
the very earliest family members >from about 1769 to 1811. Since we have exh=
austed all the available records, including newspaper searches, my only rec=
ourse is to see if I can find someone who could search the residence books =
for me, in the hopes of working out the definitive family line. I would spe=
ll out all the details to anyone who can help, and would be prepared to neg=
otiate a payment if necessary.

Please contact me directly if either you, yourself, can help, or if you kno=

Yizkor Book Project, January 2019 #warsaw #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am continually touched and heartened by the number of people
dedicating their time to advance the Yizkor Book Project. As an
example, I recently received a number of messages >from people
interested in taking on the coordination of some of our
"coordinator-less" Yizkor Book projects, to help move them forward. If
you would like to know more about the coordination of a particular
Yizkor book, please feel free to contact me and I will explain what is
involved,

Last month saw several more projects being completed online and they were:

- "Memories >from Nowy-Dwor" relating to the community of Nowy Dwor
Mazowiecki, Poland which was ably coordinated by Debra Michlewitz.
- "We Want To Live" which is a book describing the arduous journey of
Jewish martyrs across Europe during World War Two. It was kindly
donated to us by the author's son - Joshua Rassen.

On a further welcome note, once again, the Yizkor Books in Print
Project have published another book: "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" on the community of Chorzele, Poland. The remarkable work
of the YBIP Project team continues ever onward, month by month.

I am also pleased to note that Meir Gover has generously allowed us
access to a 520 page Yizkor book he has prepared on the communities of
Dlugosiodlo and Poreba Koceby. We have added links in the listings of
these communities and, hence this book, in our Translations Index.

"Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away." offers an unprecedented
opportunity to consider Auschwitz and its role in Holocaust history,
and to explore the personal experiences of Jewish families who lived
through this dark chapter of history.

You can read more about the exhibition here

#Ciechanow #Poland Announcing "Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away." #poland #ciechanow

Avraham Groll
 

Dear JewishGen Community,

As you know, JewishGen is a signature program of the Museum of Jewish
Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. It is my privilege to
share with you the announcement of an important new exhibition that
will open at the Museum on May 8, 2019.

"Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away." offers an unprecedented
opportunity to consider Auschwitz and its role in Holocaust history,
and to explore the personal experiences of Jewish families who lived
through this dark chapter of history.

You can read more about the exhibition here
(https://mjhnyc.org/exhibitions/auschwitz/), and in The New York Times
(https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/23/arts/design/auschwitz-museum-of-jewish-heritage.html).
or (https://tinyurl.com/y8hf3t3m)

We look forward to welcoming you to the Museum.

Avraham Groll
Director

#Ciechanow #Poland Yizkor Book Project, January 2019 #poland #ciechanow

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I am continually touched and heartened by the number of people
dedicating their time to advance the Yizkor Book Project. As an
example, I recently received a number of messages >from people
interested in taking on the coordination of some of our
"coordinator-less" Yizkor Book projects, to help move them forward. If
you would like to know more about the coordination of a particular
Yizkor book, please feel free to contact me and I will explain what is
involved,

Last month saw several more projects being completed online and they were:

- "Memories >from Nowy-Dwor" relating to the community of Nowy Dwor
Mazowiecki, Poland which was ably coordinated by Debra Michlewitz.
- "We Want To Live" which is a book describing the arduous journey of
Jewish martyrs across Europe during World War Two. It was kindly
donated to us by the author's son - Joshua Rassen.

On a further welcome note, once again, the Yizkor Books in Print
Project have published another book: "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" on the community of Chorzele, Poland. The remarkable work
of the YBIP Project team continues ever onward, month by month.

I am also pleased to note that Meir Gover has generously allowed us
access to a 520 page Yizkor book he has prepared on the communities of
Dlugosiodlo and Poreba Koceby. We have added links in the listings of
these communities and, hence this book, in our Translations Index.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
January:
