Re: Locate grave in Germany after Holocaust #germany

Renee Steinig
 

As I read the form, the sender (expediteur in French, Absender in German) was Leibus Farkas, address Feldafing, and the recipient (destinataire in French, Empfanger in German) was Lipot Watten... (?) in Munkacs (Mukacevo). Perhaps Solomon can clarify, based on what he knows about this communication.

Renee,

you are correct, but Feldafing is the address of the recipient, not of the sender. As far as I understood, his uncle sent the letter, so he was not in Feldafing but in the other place (the name i cannot decipher, unfortunately).

Hello Jan Michel!
 
Are you aware of the fact that Kinderstransporte even reached Sweden? There is a book written in German about a girl that came to Sweden.
The title is “Mein Liebes Ilsekind. Mit dem Kindertransport nach Schweden – Briefe an eine gerettete Tochter”. And “Herausgegeben von Elisabeth Cosanne-Schulte-Huxel im Auftrg des Jüdischen Museums Westfalen.
 
Wishing you success!

Re: Locate grave in Germany after Holocaust #germany

Renee Steinig
 

The form with the Red Cross symbol on top gives Leibus's address as Feldafing -- a displaced persons camp that was located in Bavaria (Bayern), about 20 miles southwest of Munich. Google for much information about that camp. 

According to FindaGrave (https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/2517557/jüdischer-friedhof-feldafing), some of the people who died at the Feldafing DP camp were "buried in a small cemetery at Friedensweg, right next to the community cemetery. Actually the community donated a part of its cemetery property for this Jewish burial ground to be established. It is now is poor condition, with many markers toppled and impossible to read. There have been no further burials since 1953. It has seen 112 known burials...The cemetery is somewhat hidden. Once a visitor is standing in front of the gate of the community cemetery, turn left onto the parking lot behind the little chapel. There one will find a small gate that leads onto the Jewish burial ground."

Someone named Frank K. (https://www.findagrave.com/user/profile/46941322has photographed several of the graves in that cemetery. I suggest that you write him and ask him if he would be able to check there for Leibus's grave.

Also, see this Facebook group: Families of Feldafing Displaced Persons Camp . Maybe someone there can help.

Hi from Paris,
Dear Solomon,
If your unfortunate uncle died in a Displaced Person camp (DP's camp) in Germany, I am almost sure Bad Arolsen (former International Tracing Service) archives should have records of his stay in which camp and then even of his death.
You can search 
https://arolsen-archives.org/en/
and fill inquiry

They reply always but due to their last information campaign, I have heard delay could be some weeks.

What a great resource for these times!  I have an older NYPL card.  Is there an expiration on these cards?  Mine doesn't show one.

In those times Syria was a general not precise area of the Levant, more than a political concept, and it could include Palestine - within the Otoman Empire


Re: NYPL opens up some databases for remote use for library card holders

Check your local library for temporary remote access to Ancestry.com, etc.

The link to Ancestry on my neighborhood library’s website still says “this resource is only available through library computers for in-library use and cannot be accessed from home.” Even so, I clicked through and gained full access to the library’s Ancestry account.

Re: NYPL opens up some databases for remote use for library card holders

Renee Steinig
 

Anyone who lives, works, attends school or pays property tax in New
York State is entitled to a NYPL card.

For a list of the NYPL databases that can normally be searched from
home, see https://www.nypl.org/collections/articles-databases .
Among them, ProQuest's Historical Jewish Newspapers and these other
newspapers: Atlanta Constitution, Baltimore Sun, Boston Globe, Chicago
Tribune, Hartford Courant, Los Angeles Times, Toronto Star, Washington
Post.

For details and a link to an online application, see
https://www.nypl.org/help/library-card/terms-conditions#access.
Out-of-staters and visitors from abroad can apply in person for a
three-month card. Ordinarily it is possible for NYers who live
outside the city to apply online and fax/email a copy of ID, but I
guess that won't work when the library is closed.
