Bodies of 286 Jews Found in Basement in Sataniv, Ukraine #ukraine #holocaust

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The European Jewish Congress reports that bodies of 286 Jews murdered in the Holocaust were found in a basement in Sataniv, Ukraine.  Searches began on the site in 2019, and one by one, bones and articles of clothing of those savagely killed was found. Among the rubble was a mezuzah, suggesting the ruins above the basement once belonged to  Jewish family.

 

The remains of the Jewish people left in the basement were collected to be taken for burial in the city’s ancient Jewish cemetery.

 

Sataniv was known to have had an organized Jewish community where pioneers of the Haskalah movement once lived.  The Nazis infiltrated the town in May 1942 and killed 800 people, the majority of whom were Jewish.

 

It took years in legal battles before searches could begin in 2019 where they found the remains of the bodies.

Arolsen Archives Initiates Crowd-Sourcing Project: Every Name Counts #holocaust #announcements

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

The Arolsen Archives has initiated a crowd-sourcing project: Every Name Counts. It’s a call to assist the  Arolsen Archives in making 26 million newly digitized historical documents searchable by anyone online.  See: https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/cseidenstuecker/every-name-counts

 

The project was originally launched to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day last January. Twenty schools near the archive in Bad Arolsen, Germany, were involved in a limited pilot, and there were plans to expand the project in 2021. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic people all over the world are at home and are now volunteering.  Before the pandemic the Arolsen Archives only used outside companies. Their own staff and artificial intelligence to do the indexing.

 

There are currently some 7,000 registered volunteers, but it is not necessary to register to participate.

 

The project’s online interface that requires going through original documents and then type basic information — name and birthdate — into a database. The names must be typed in correctly by at least two different people, and then checked again by the archives staff. Software that takes into account various spellings of names is employed. Conflicting entries are referred back to the archive’s staff of professional archivists and historians, who monitor discussion boards to answer questions about cryptic abbreviations, professions and confusing names. The project is being hosted on the Zooniverse platform, which is a crowdsourcing platform that allows volunteers to contribute to academic research projects by analyzing large data sets a little bit at a time.

 

The Arolsen Archives is committed to making all the names in its vast holdings searchable online by 2025.

 

See: https://www.timesofisrael.com/you-can-help-nazi-victims-families-learn-their-fates-in-online-archive-project/   There is a link to a  3-minutes video about the project included in the article.

The Jewish Home: Online Exhibit #announcements #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

      

 

The 2019-2020 Katz Center in partnership with the Penn Libraries recently launched their web exhibition entitled: “The Jewish Home: Dwelling on the Domestic, the Familial and the Lived-In”, See: https://www.library.upenn.edu/collections/online-exhibits/jewish-home

 

“The exhibition highlights examples of the most formative and intimate of contexts for Jewish life: homes, houses, and households. Drawing from texts in the Penn Libraries’ collections and from around the world, the contributors interpreted Jewish domestic culture, architecture, clothing, landscape, and material evidence through the lenses of archaeological, anthropological, historical, legal, literary, and visual research."

 

“Among the topics discussed are Jewish domestic labor, home and homeland, the cosmopolitan home, ghettoized homes, traumatized homes, refugee homes, Soviet Shtetl homes, symbolic homes, embodied homes, health and hygiene, affordable housing, as well as homelessness within the framework of broad social and political contexts. Also treated are Jewish costume and clothing, Jewish domestic customs, including lighting Sabbath candles and inscribing marriage contracts, as well as the homes and hands through which Jewish books have passed. The periods of time covered span the ancient Near Eastern archeological sites of home, the ancient rabbinic home as a worksite, Fatamid Egyptian Jewish home interiors, early modern Jewish households of masters and enslaved people; modern representations of Jewish notions of home and office in the visual arts, including photography and engraving, and studies that approach the home as part of the built environment and design of local neighborhoods.”

Subject: [JewishGen.org] Equivalent Name for Rose #names

 

Hello all,

Strong evidence indicates that the first name of my paternal great-grandmother was the English equivalent Rose. I do not know her birthplace, but she died in Iasi, Romania. 

I'm looking for suggestions of Hebrew, Yiddish or other possible names which might translate to '"Rose".

With thanks,

Go to one of the Jewishgen databases, e.g., The Memorial Plaques Database    
https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Memorial/
Enter the given name is Exactly Rose you will find about 2,500  entries. You can look at the results and see an assortment of Hebrew names. Raisel/Reizel, Rivka, Rochel, Rosa  are popular, but you will see a few outliers such as Shoshana, Chaya, Ita etc.

Re: are there benefits of the My Heritage site over Ancestry #general

Pieter Hoekstra
 

If you are looking for access to newspaper entries in Netherlands you can use "delpher.nl" for free. It is all in Dutch so you might need to use a translator to translate key search words.

Once you have found the article, ad, etc you are looking for you can highlight it to download. You can also highlight it and download as text which you can then copy to your preferred translator.

Jeri,

You forgot to inform us if you are computer comfortable.
Do you know how to create backup and can you create
the data on your own computer?

If so, I suggest Brother's Keeper for almost everything
you ask for.
