Having a child out of wedlock was a scandal too back then, now it is much more accepted.

Hi Barbara,

As the speaker, I fully agree. In my talk, I refer to mental illness as a "skeleton in the closet" not because it should have been, but because, sadly, it was. The two cases I discuss are heartbreaking and no doubt treatment would be far different today.

Re: Who Betrayed Anne Frank and Her Family? #holocaust

Jx. Gx.
 

The 60 Minute broadcast was made in typical journalistic fashion to give the impression that a thorough investigation was conducted to discover who betrayed the Franks, but in the end admitted their “evidence” was circumstantial and inconclusive. In other words, it was no closer to the truth than previous investigations and may have muddled the mystery even more.  It was shocking to hear the former FBI agent say that suspect X was eliminated because he was not an anti-Semite – as if that's the only reason for betraying the Franks. The team zeroed in on one member of the Jewish Committee (suspect Y) because he had a list of where Jews were hiding. Pursuing that questionable avenue of investigation, wouldn’t it also be possible that other members of the Committee might have access to that same list, making them suspects, too? This question was not addressed. Also not addressed is the fate of the Committee members, excluding suspect Y.  Typically, the Nazis murdered those who cooperated with them once their usefulness had passed. This did not happen to suspect Y.  Here again, no explanation was given. The 60 Minute broadcast reminds me of the 1986 television special “The Mystery of the Al Capone Vaults,” in which tabloid journalist Geraldo Rivera intimated that when the vaults were opened they would reveal a cache of loot and more. That turned out to be a bust.

TAJTELBAUM/TEITELBAUM (a/k/a Tomer), Będzin, Poland #poland

Yale Reisner
 

 

The January 19, 2022 edition of the Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza carried two legal notices from the Regional Court of Będzin in regard to real property in Będzin belonging to now-deceased Polish Jews.   The individuals in question are:

 

Abraham TAJTELBAUM (later TOMER), a physician, born April 20, 1932, died April 11, 2009 in Tel Aviv, son of Itzhak & Rivka, and

 

Carmela TAJTELBAUM (later TOMER), a  nurse, born May 16, 1934, died December 20, 2019 in Tel Aviv, daughter of Josef & Jafa (Yaffa).

 

In this case, there appears to be a living heir who has applied to the court for recognition as the legal successor to the above.  His name is Eran TOMER.

 

Any others who might be heirs to these people have three months from the date of the notices’ publication to contact the court directly.  In any contacts with the court, correspondents should cite Docket No. I Ns 793/21.

 

Best wishes,

Luba MATRASZEK, Lublin, Poland #poland

Yale Reisner
 

 

With regret, I wish to inform the JewishGen community of the passing of Dr. Luba MATRASZEK of Lublin.

 

Dr. Matraszek was the leader of the Lublin Chapter of the Jewish Social-Cultural Association of the Jews in Poland, an attorney and lecturer.  She was one of those who revived Jewish life in Lublin after the fall of Communism.  She was active both in the Jewish Social-Cultural Association and in the Jewish Religious Community of Lublin.  For many years, she looked after the Memorial Chamber of Lublin Jewry in the Chewra Nosim Synagogue and, in that role, met with many visitors from Poland and abroad.

 

Her funeral took place at the Walecznych Street Jewish Cemetery in Lublin on January 20, 2022.  She is survived by a son, Paweł.

 

May her memory be blessed.

Re: Which burial ground is likely for a death registered in Battersea, London? #unitedkingdom

You were very lucky.  The liberal, Reform and Sephardi have their own burial grounds or specific sections of others, including areas within the cemeteries owned by local authorities.  Also many who are not orthodox use cremation which may be anywhere or use the same rose bush or whatever place may be deemed to be most suitable for the remaining (living) mourners.

Re: ViewMate translation needed - Yiddish - family GOLD #poland #yiddish #translation

Jack Berger
 

Linda, 

I can’t read the penmanship with confidence.

it seem that one of the themes imbedded is that the writer is anxious about not receiving more frequent correspondence from the recipient of this card. There is some evidence that the writer alludes to all things being normal.

You need help from someone who can read this penmanship better than me. I suggest that this might be an octogenarian who spoke and wrote Yiddish in younger times.

I regret not being able to offer you more.

Searching for family in Rishon LeZion #israel

Scott Johnson
 

I am looking for information on a cousin who lived in Rishon LeZion, Israel, and her family.

Polina GUREVICH (גורביץ פולינא), maiden name KLOTZ, was born in Telz, Lithuania, in 1925 and died in 2009. Her headstone is listed at BillionGraves: https://billiongraves.com/grave/%D7%A4%D7%95%D7%9C%D7%99%D7%A0%D7%94-%D7%A4%D7%A1%D7%99%D7%94-%D7%A7%D7%9C%D7%95%D7%A5-%D7%92%D7%95%D7%A8%D7%91%D7%99%D7%A5/14342556.

In 1999, Polina submitted testimonies at Yad Vashem for five of her aunts and uncles. The address she provided on the form was Tsadi Gimel Banot 5/1, Rishon LeZion (רח' צ'ג בנות 5/1 , ראושון לציון).

For someone in the U.S. I would search the usual sources for an obituary, but don’t know if that is possible for someone who died in Israel. At this point I've exhausted my leads as far as the internet is concerned and am looking for next steps.

I would like to make contact with any surviving family members of Polina. Thanks for any advice you can give me.

Prezlau=Przeclaw? #hungary

Alan Reische
 

The one pre-emigration factoid I've been able to pin down with reasonable certainty is that my paternal ggm came from Przeclaw (Yiddish=Pshetzlov) in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Presumably my paternal ggf - a tailor -  came from the same locale.

In searching the Hamburg departure records, I've come across a family with the surname 'Lische' that has demographics down to the father's occupation quite similar to my family. (This surname occasionally appears in my post-emigration records as well.) The Hamburg records list the family place of residence as 'Prezlau, Osterreich'.

At first, I wondered if there had been confusion with Breslau, but in 1879-1880 Breslau was clearly part of the Prussian-German Empire, and it is unlikely that a Hamburg ticket agent would have confused the two. I don't find anything to indicate that Prezlau was the Germanicized version of Przeclaw but the phonetic similarity and the family demographics seem to match up.

Does 'Prezlau' strike members as a likely match for Przeclaw or am I heading down a rabbit hole?

Thanks, Alan Reische

That's truly generous, Ted, and very welcome.

It was definitely worth making the time to watch and listen; and I may need to watch it again – there was so much useful information to be absorbed.  I have managed to make use of it, with the handout, already.  Although I haven't managed to prise out the info I was after... yet... I have the tools to make it happen once the right years of scans come online.

Hi Lesley,

My first port of call would be the United Synagogues Find a grave page: https://www.theus.org.uk/category/find-grave
Just type in first name, surname and year. If you do this then it returns the following information.

Cemetery Full Name Last Name Date of Burial Section Row Plot #
East Ham LEWIS BOWMAN 25/06/1958 F 23 1527

They have the opening times for all their cemeteries and maps.  Google Maps have a "Street View" around a part of the cemetery, including section F.
