Hello,

I'm reaching out in case you have similar advice for a relative who used the last name Levin after emigrating to US in early 1900's. Name searches so far are not returning results in Lithuania. 

Thanks for any info,
David Reed

The SS personal files are at the U.S. National Archives on microfilm and the Berlin Document Center.  The microfilm is available to anyone who goes there but I don't know about access to the Berlin Document Center originals.

Here are some books that might be of interest:

Die Deportation der Juden aus Berlin : die nationalsozialistische Vernichtungspolitik und das Sammellager Grosse Hamburger Strasse / Akim Jah (2013)
Mahnort Güterbahnhof Moabit : die Deportation von Juden aus Berlin / Alfred Gottwaldt. (2015)
Jews in Nazi Berlin : from Kristallnacht to liberation / edited by Beate Meyer, Hermann Simon, and Chana Schütz. (2009) (translation of German original)
Das Sammellager in der Berliner Synagoge Levetzowstrasse 1941/42 / Philipp Dinkelaker. (2017)
Final sale in Berlin : the destruction of Jewish commercial activity, 1930-1945 / Christoph Kreutzmüller (2015) (translation of the German original)
Reichssicherheitshauptamt und Nachkriegsjustiz : das Bovensiepen-Verfahren und die Deportationen der Juden aus Berlin / Andreas Nachama (Hg.). (2015)
"Schon damals fingen viele an zu schweigen" : Quellensammlung zur Geschichte Charlottenburgs von 1933-1945 / [Beschaffung und Sichtung des Quellenmaterials, Hans Wienicke ; Erläuterung und Textgestaltung, Uwe Otto, Anne Jörg]. (1986)
Juden in Charlottenburg : ein Gedenkbuch / Verein zur Förderung des Gedenkbuches für die Charlottenburger Juden (Hrsg.). (2009)
Jüdisches Leben am Kurfürstendamm / Sonja Miltenberger  (2011)

You can check www.worldcat.org to see what libraries in the Netherlands have these titles.  NIOD should have at least some of them.

Yes,  It is possible that your town is included in the list.  If you can recognize the town name in Cyrillic, you can look at the documents through the Family Search Website by looking for Krakovsky documents.

Jewish Genealogical Conference - 2 #bessarabia #announcements

Yefim Kogan
 
Edited

Hello everybody,

I have already sent a post about 2022 conference to the group asking about topics of interest and if someone would like to present for our Bessarabia group...  and got 1 response from a person who always was at the conference, and would love to go again - thank you.

I did plan to go to that conference,  and now I am not sure.  If only one from Bessarabia group is coming, and there is no interest in any topics, probably no reason to come....?!

Call for Proposals for 2022 conference is now open...  and the deadline for submission is Sunday, November 21.

If anyone is still interested to present on some topic or let us know about your research, ups and downs of it - that would be of interest to our group... Please let me know.

Also, please let me know if you are planning to come to the conference.

All the best,
Yefim Kogan
JewishGen Bessarabia Group Leader and Coordinator

So is it possible that there are records for Kupel inside these collections, if the towns are not identified on other revision list years? Routes to Roots indicates that it is at least included in 1858.

Re: Ever Heard of Neimark, Austria-Hungary> #hungary #austria-czech

This map is about Neumark, the Region. From neu = new and Mark = border state. Neumarkt is from neu and Markt  = market or market town. In Polish, Nowy = new and targ = market.
The OP wanted to find a town, not a region. Also, the Neumark region was in Prussia, not Austria-Humgary.

Re: Reading a Headstone from Warsaw Cemetery #poland

Stephan is correct about the Hebrew.

I will also note that in Polish it says that her maiden name was STOKBAND and that she was 54 years old at death.

Name RIBA/RIVA in hebrew/yiddish. #names

Menachem Schreiber
 

My grandmother just passed away and she was called Riva.
On her grandmother's gravestone, it is spelled ריבא.
On her mother's gravestone, her mother's name is written ריווא.
It also has been written ריבה.
 
Does anyone know what the correct spelling is?

Offering to take photos of gravestones in Boston, MA - area Jewish cemeteries.
 
Having just done a grave search for a request, it had been a bit of a puzzle: the footstone was located in the plot owner's grave, perhaps a common occurrence?  So it's important to know the grave owner's name, as well as the person you're trying to locate. 
 
Thanks,

Looking for data on 12thEast transport April 1942 Berlin to Warsaw Ghetto: looking for family #germany #holocaust

Meanwhile have learned from USHMM (US Holocaust Museum) that following people were
involved in this transport which took place in Berlin April 2, 1942:
 
Nahme: Gerhard Stübs
SS-Hauptsturmführer and Kriminalkommissar Gestapo Berlin
geboren 17.10.1908  Sastelsitz Krs Regenwalde
 
The department for Jewish Affairs at the Berlin Gestapo, headed by SS-Untersturmführer Gerhard Stübs :
 
and his deputy Kriminaloberinspektor Franz Prüfer was put in charge of organizing the transports together with the Department of Jewish Affairs in the RSHA (IVD1). The task of compiling lists of deportees was given to the representatives of the Jewish community of Berlin
 
As far as known Stübs committed suicide.              "

Who has more data/details on this transport and those names of mentioned Nazi officiers responsible for this transport? Who knows more about their fate after arrival April 5, 1942 in the Warsaw Ghetto? Thanks very much for all replies to help me find out more about what happened to my family after they were deported from Berlin Aprtil 2, 1942: Kaethe Lindenstaedt nee Lesser born Berlin 1887 and her brother Arthur Lesser born Berlin 1888.They lived in Berlin Charlottenburg at Mommsenstrasse 57.

Dame Judi Dench on (UK) Who Do You Think You Are #announcements #unitedkingdom

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

YouTube has the recent episode of Who Do You Think You Are -UK with Dame Judi Dench. I don’t know how long it will be “up” so looking at it soon if you are interested is warranted. It is up at the time this is being posted.

See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HI4pFPBvRA

 

An article about this may be read at: https://www.whodoyouthinkyouaremagazine.com/episode/judi-dench-who-do-you-think-you-are/

After World War II, on October 26, 1945, the new Polish Communist government decreed that all property in the city of Warsaw was being nationalized, roughly 24,000 buildings and many plots of unbuilt land.  Pre-war private owners were not compensated for the property seized.

 

In today’s Poland, legal processes are underway recognizing the pre-war ownership of those properties.  In light of that, I want to make you aware of the following:

 

In the 27 October 2021 edition of the newspaper Rzeczpospolita, there appeared an announcement calling on heirs of the following pre-war owners to make themselves known to the city government's Office of Decree Issues.

 

On 19 October 1948 and 14 February 1949, the city was contacted by attorney Stanisław Tyc who at the time represented the owners of a building located at 38 Chłopickiego Street, Warsaw-Praga, formerly designated as "Hip. 2465-Praga."

 

The person who contacted the city back then was Alter Ganc of the displaced persons camp in Wetzlar, Germany, putative heir to the property owners. 

There was no subsequent contact with city authorities.

 

Anyone with an interest in this matter is encouraged to get in touch with the Warsaw city authorities.  You have six months to make contact with the city and three more months after that to come up with documentary evidence to support your claim.

 

JewishGen sleuths are invited to help in making this known to the family in question.

 

Best wishes,
