Aperion is NOT a name.  It is a litter as in  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Litter_(vehicle
The word is used to describe the exalt an individual ( who would have been important enpugh to be carried in such a litter)

Viewmate - Austrian army uniform insignia #austria-czech #photographs

Robert Fraser
 

Dear Friends - I've placed on ViewMate (83813) a cropped and enlarged photo of my grandfather Adolf Finkelstein, in the Austrian army in 1918.

Could anyone tell me;
what his rank was? The family story is that he was a 'feldwebel'

what medal he's wearing on the LHS of this tunic?

Genealogy research leads to discovery of cousins thought to have died in the Holocaust #holocaust

Michael Moritz
 

You may find interesting my recent blog post about how genealogical research led to the discovery of cousins who we thought died in the Holocaust. After my grandmother died, I was able to find through genealogical research what she never knew: she had two first cousins who, completely unbeknownst to her, survived the war and lived out their lives in Europe.  The post contains many searching strategies especially for Austrian (Vienna) and general Holocaust genealogy research.  https://moritzresearch.blogspot.com/2020/08/we-thought-they-died-in-holocaust-how.html

Lost Nazi property claim record #holocaust #germany

Maurine McLellan
 

I had previously found a record in Nazi Property Claims for Alma Bejach (daughter of Max Michel Bejach). The record said Alma died 28 July 1942. Unfortunately, I failed to record where I found the record. I would like to go back and review it so see if there is any other information to be gleaned. I have looked in Ancestry, JewishGen, Familysearch, Arolsen, USHMM, Yad Vashem, MyHeritage, and Gesher Galicia. Do any of you brilliant researchers out there know of other sites where this record might be? Thank you so much for your help!

You might find the book "Odessa--Genius and Death in the City of Dreams" by Charles King published in 2011 of interest. It has an extensive bibliography.

That was my number two rule of genealogy when I taught it. Number one was, "This isn't high school, you do what you want, but some things work better than others, so we will learn some of the better ways here."

Hungarian Jewish Women in OBERNHEIDE 1944-5 #hungary #slovakia #holocaust

shaul berger
 

I would like to connect with survivors (and their children) of a group of 500 Hungarian/Slovak jewish women (and 300 jewish women from Lodz). My mother Manci Rachel Aranka Berger (nee Hutter) was part of this group. She arrived with her family to Auschwitz in early June 1944  from Hungary. She and her family were sent by train from Salgotarjan but originally her family lived in Slovakia, south of Rimavska Sobota) . All my family was murdered on arrival and my mother was the only one to survive. The women of this group (most of them 15-30 years old) were sent in late July from Auschwitz to Obernheide (near Bremen) as slave laborers. They did various manual labor tasks such as cleaning up rubble from Bremen streets after Allied air bombings. In early April 1945 they were moved to the Bergen Belsen concentration camp where they were liberated on April 15.

I am trying to learn more about this dark period (I have the book "women of Obernheide"). . My mother told me about that period but I hope you can help me learn more . I understand that Lily Maor z"l was the chairman of the Obernheide comittee and even organized meetings and a trip to Bremen (that my mother participated). I also know about Hedy Brasch and several others. There is also a list of 350 survivors. I would love to get the list.. Do you know how I can get a copy?

Any help will be appreciated. You are welcome to contact me directly by email.

Anybody can came to the https://forum.j-roots.info/viewforum.php?f=101
and ask his question in Questions and answers in English and other foreign languages
It is not difficult.
The registration is simple. Type right button (near pencil sign).



Then you can change the language to British Englsh and type your nickname and password.

 

Since about 80% of the world Jewish population lived within the Pale in Russian Empire in the 19th century, and almost every one of you had roots in the Russian Empire, it is surprising that no one  visits Russian-language forums. This is not difficult. I also use Google translate when I can't translate to English.

Re: Latvia Database / Christine Usdin Clarification #latvia #records

Marion Werle
 

Bernard, you are absolutely correct in that the JewishGen "1897 All-Russia Census — Latvia" database does not include all of the household members. The database description makes this clear: "What is in the Database and What is Not - The database concentrates on the head of the family, his spouse and adult children, but does not record the full details of every family unit.  Occasionally there is a record of younger children, but not all siblings are consistently extracted..."
At the time the 1897 data was added to JewishGen, there were financial and time constraints that kept the database from being fully translated. This is why most entries have an archival description that enables the user to find the complete, original record, and, if necessary to have it translated. We have two projects to address this: 1) Integrating Christine's translations for Riga and Dvinsk (her only 1897 census translations) into the database; 2) Correcting the links to point to either FamilySearch or, if not yet filmed by FS, to the new Raduraksti website. In cases where links are missing altogether or incomplete, they will be added. 
We do not currently have either the financial resources or the translators to enable us to add the full household members to the many towns of Latvia outside of the two large cities. There are 46,000 Riga vital records that remain to be translated, records that Christine had not yet translated at the time of her death. Translating these is our highest priority, along with correcting the links to the census and vital records. It would be ideal if we could add the missing household members to our database, but given our resource constraints and the prioritization of other projects, I'm afraid that this will remain a project for the future. We have a limited number of volunteers, and are doing our best to transcribe data and fix broken links. If you would like to volunteer to help us, please contact Paul Cheifitz at pcheifitz@....

Bob,

Maybe she petitioned in 1924, but did not complete the process at that time?

Have you seen the documentation from both 1924 and 1941?

The documentary was excellent.  I agree with you that the sound was very low.  I had to use my headphones to be able to hear it.

Re: Leopold Israel Haar deregisteredfrom Vienna, Austria on 16/05/1938 #austria-czech

Peter,

I am not familiar with the rules for the U.K., but to come to the U.S. at that time period one needed a visa issued by the U.S.  Perhaps Leopold needed a visa for the U.K., and that paperwork would shed light on how he came to England?

Did Leopold naturalize in the U.K.?  In the U.S. naturalization papers (especially post-1906 give good entry data.)  His naturalization papers may contain some clues.

Regards,

Sherri Bobish

This has been very thoroughly answered with only one exception: identity theft is not limited to living people.  I would not share much about deceased people unless I can verify a relationship because those names can be used for identity theft.

Re: Index of Baghdadi Jewish Surnames -Harasta in Syria #names

Hi,
There is a book in  Arabic about Harasta published in Damascus in 1988. A copy exists at the National Library in Jerusalem but due to COVID 19 it is closed nowadays.

It was originally a Christian village but through the generations they almost disappeared.

I'll ask on the Damascus Jewish fora on Facebook  to see whether someone knows more. In the meantime I enclose an image of the book cover.

What is your email address?

We were very frustrated at first because the sound through both my laptop and the TV connection was very muted.  It was impossible to hear anything.  Only when we connected external speakers to my computer did the sound become audible.  
We watched it too. Excellent documentary. The only sound problem we encountered was a slight timing dtiscrepancy between the sound and the image. Not much, 1 second or so, perhaps because of the difference in wifi download speeds.
Highly recommend watching while it is still available. Very illuminating on multiple aspects including Pius XI of whom I knew little, Pacelli's consistent behaviour both before and after becoming Pius XII, and several other important but far less known individuals who played important roles.
