This message concerns the request of Louis Schonfeld to complete the
list of the historians and their works on the holocaust period in general and of Hungary in particular.
One of the most prominant expert historian of the subject is Professor
Asher Cohen. Asher Cohen was born in Budapest in 1936, was a professor of the Faculty of History in the University of Haifa
His book on the resistance activities of the zionist movements in
Hungary first appeared in Hebrew in 1983 and the English edition was published in 1986. This book is, to the best of our

the fugitive Jews >from other East Europian countries in Hungary and the rescue operations which saved the life of thousends of Jews, mostly lone children.
He planned a comprehensive series of books on the shoa. Unfortunately,
only the first book of this series could came to light: on the shoa in France (Persecution et Sauvetage). It was issued in French in 1993 and has been translated only to Hebrew yet.
The whole project was interrupted by his sudden death in 1996.

Below is a list of some of his publications:.

Re: ASCHNER in Toronto #hungary

Rakoff125
 

Dear fellow seekers,
In my search for kin a kind William Lurie sent me the following clue:
"I believe that Lipot Aschner had a son Pol (Paul), who is now in his nineties
and living near Toronto. I understand that he is old and frail, and hard to
communicate with. Letters >from me went unanswered. Perhaps you will have
better results. Try him at:
6 Glenview Crescent
Toronto M4B 2C9, Ontario
(416 761 3318)"
Might there be a kind soul in Toronto in his neighborhood who would be willing
to make a personal call on him on my behalf? If he is in his '90s I think a
long distance call >from a strange can be quite confusing and I would not
expect a letter to get a response. Perhaps he lives with someone who can be of
assistance. I can provide lots of Aschner details. I should be glad to
reciprocate lookups in greater Boston if someone >from afar needs help.
thank you. Linda Rakoff, Newton, MA

Cemetery in Stanislav, Ukraine #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

This >from the news of Arutz-7 >from Israel. It may be of interest to
someone researching the town.

They are refurbishing the Jewish cemetery in Stanislav, Ukraine.
The local authorities rescinded their original decision to
build atop the land, after a personal request to the Ukrainian
president by MK Avner Shaki (National Religious Party). A monument
will be erected on the site in memory of the 120,000 Jews who were murdered.
