Re: Locate grave in Germany after Holocaust #germany

Renee Steinig
 

My apologies. You're right. We've been under c-virus "house arrest" for only a few days and already my brain isn't working.

Yes, on the form, Lipot is the sender and Leibus the recipient. On the other hand, the message that Solomon posted was written by Leibus. So perhaps the form  was used when Lipot replied to that message. In any case, it does seem that Leibus was at the DP camp Feldafing and perhaps was buried at its cemetery.

It seems Renee is right. The text is a bit confusing. It seems that one note was written to (not from) Leibus in Feldafing and the other notes are from Leibus stating that he is free.
I am sorry for causing confusion :-(.

(Portugal) Portuguese Parliament Approved Law Officially Commemorating Inquisition of Jews #announcements #sephardic

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

The Portuguese Parliament has approved a law to officially commemorate the Inquisition of the Jews to be March 31 of each year.  The March 31 date was selected as the Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Inquisition as that was the date in 1821 that the Inquisition in Portugal was officially disbanded.  The expulsion of Jews from Portugal was in 1497 with subsequent massacres of the Jews from the Inquisition which began in 1536.  The Inquisition operated in Portugal from 1546, during the reign of King João III, until March 31, 1821.

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

Lin Mor
 

You need to do the application in person and you get the card immediately at a NYPL lending library. Perhaps the in-person requirement has changed, but you do need to be a New York State resident for a non-temporary card. There is an expiration date after 3 years. Barbara Sloan, To renew, I followed the directions given on the website - I scanned the card and my driver's license and sent it to the place stated. Did that over a year ago, so I do not remember all except that it was quite easy. As a SC resident, not sure, but you can call them and discuss!

Hi Trudy,

I would advise you that you should contact the St Louis Genealogical Society, they have all the information about the Jewish Community
and all the Jewish Cemeteries in St Louis on their website, www.stlgs.org 

A good contact is their Publications Director Ilene Kanfer Murrey.

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.
