What happened to Cilke and Selda Faikes/passenger manifest #general

sacredsisters1977@...
 

Hi All
I am trying to find two women who are listed as siblings on  ship passenger manifest.  All three  siblings  came from Brest  Belarus. They  left in November  of 1910 and was going to their  uncle  Simon  Frankel  in Philadelphia.  They  left  behind  other siblings and parents Chaim and Leja.  The youngest sister listed on the manifest is Sure/Sonia and  she married a Fleischer and settled in New York.  I don't know what happened to the other two.  Seeking  help and  suggestions.  Could they have been sent  back  for one sister  is  listed as crippled.

From Numbers to Names An AI facial Recognitions Platform that can Scan Photos from Prewar Europe and Holocaust Linking them to People Living Today #holocaust #photographs

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

 

Daniel Patt, a software engineer working for Google, created and developed From Numbers to Names (N2N), an artificial intelligence-driven facial recognition platform that can scan through photos from prewar Europe and the Holocaust, linking them to people living today.

 

This was a project with a personal stake for Patt as his four grandparents are Holocaust survivors from Poland, and he wants to help his grandmother find photos of the members of her family murdered by the Nazis. She was just 9 years old when the war started and fled from her hometown of Zamosc eastward with her father and siblings, while her mother — Patt’s great-grandmother — stayed behind. Her mother was shot and killed during the Nazi invasion, and Patt’s great-uncle — his grandmother’s brother — was subsequently killed when he went back to rescue her. The rest of the family survived and emigrated to New York City after the war.

 

Currently, N2N’s software — which is free and simple to use — only returns the 10 best potential matches that it can find in the database available to it. The software has been used to search through hundreds of thousands of photos to identify faces for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) as well as individual survivors and descendants of survivors — including a number of celebrities. He is working to access 700,000 more photos from the pre-Holocaust and Holocaust eras.

 

The Times of Israel interviewed Patt for Holocaust Survivor day (a newly minted annual commemoration). That interview may be read at: https://www.timesofisrael.com/google-engineer-identifies-anonymous-faces-in-wwii-photos-with-ai-facial-recognition/. They have analyzed 500,000 photos so far with 2 million faces and they have a backlog of potential identifications they are reviewing.

 

“For people coming to the site, they can click on “select an image.” They can then select a file from their computer or phone containing a cropped photo of a single face. Then they can click on the “search” button, which will show them 10 photos containing the most similar faces to the one provided by the user. The software works best when searching using photos that are roughly from the same time period (e.g., pre-1960s).’

Tail of two cities: The Hackers from Tomaszow Lubelski and the Wagners from Laszczow Lubelski #poland

angel kosfiszer
 

Would like to get in touch with researchers of Laszczow and/or Tomaszow regarding the Haker and Wagner families. Jewishgen shows very distinctively many members of the Wagners in Laszczow and very few Hakers, while there were many Hackers in Tomaszow and very few Wagners. The families intermarried many times and as an example at least 3 Haker women married 3 Wagner men and they lived in Laszczow in the 1930s.

Irene Klein born Weiss, Panyola December 2 1928, Married with a family unit of 3. Entered Austria May 1949 thence to Israel August 1949.

I strongly recommend reaching out to the Arolsen archives. They have skilled researchers. They might for example find a Herschkowits whose card serial number is adjacent, which in turn would give you the husband's first name and birth date. Or they may be able to dig deeper into archives that are not searchable yet.

Good luck!

Hi Wendy,

I just found a great aunt after a year of searching.  I could not find anything at Yad VShem, US Holocaust Museum, Jewish Gen, etc., etc., etc.
My lucky break happened last week.
I submitted a records search request at the Arolsen archives.
I couldn't answer everything they asked for but I gave them every bit of information I had which was not much. 
I now have 50 pages of documentation including her testimony taken after she moved to Israel in 1948.

Announcing the publication of "The Will to Tell" #JewishGenUpdates

Susan Rosin
 

JewishGen Press is proud to announce our 146th title: "The Will to Tell".
 
The book was written by Yitzhak Weizman.
 
Details:
Translator: Dikla Yeffet-Weizman
Editor: Leon Zamosc
Cover Design: Jan R. Fine
6.14” x 9.21” hard cover, 150 pages

 

Yitzhak Weizman opens the book with a forceful argument about the value of Holocaust testimonies and memoirs for the education of new generations of Jews and Gentiles in Israel and elsewhere. After describing his Jewish roots and family life in Gombin, a town in central Poland, he offers vivid details about the plight of the Jewish community in the Gombin ghetto until his deportation to the forced labor camp in Konin. He then goes on to provide a sober, realistic account of his experiences, feelings and thoughts as he was transferred to other concentration and forced labor camps including Andrzejow, Jedrzejow, Auschwitz-Birkenau, Stutthof, Hailfingen, Dautmergen and Dachau.

Through his reflections on the horrors of the camps, Yitzhak Weizman conveys a sense of the profound significance of survival as an act of resistance. For contemporary readers, another aspect of the value of his testimony lies in the detailed description of conditions after the war, including the underground effort to bring survivors to Mandatory Palestine and the struggles of the new immigrants to reconstruct their lives in Israel.

To add a “little nothing” to the data you build:  My parents wanted me to learn some Hebrew, but the temples required fees/membership, etc, which they could not afford.  At some point they heard of a neighborhood market, on La Brea, between Pico & Olympic, that used their upstairs office space as an informal Saturday School where parents of little ones, like me, could find an inexpensive way for their children to learn what they had learned when they were young.  It was very sweet; very thoughtful; very unselfish, and I have never forgotten.

Re: Suggestions for tracing Hungarian Shoah survivors? #hungary #holocaust

Dear Wendy, 
here are some comments that may or may not be helpful to your letter.  You probably know that Panyola is a village in Szabolcs Szatmar -Bergen County with a population of 606 in 2015 per Microsoft Bing. and since Ilona and Iren in 1944 were relatively young and were able to work, but the parents may have not been to at the time that's the reason you don't find them together.  
It's possible that after the war they went back to their hometown.  If they did go back to their hometown, then a synagogue may have kept records of people who returned say in a large city like Nyiregyhaza. I mention this because in the city of Miskolc, that is not too far from Nyiregyhaza, did kept such records. Maybe these remarks could help you.  Wish you the best.

Major new Zambrów, Lomza area, Poland records extraction project started #poland #records

steven@...
 

Long-time Zambrów and area researchers will be pleased to learn that Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (jri-poland.org) as undertaken a huge new “Phase 3” project to fully extract all surviving Zambrów birth, marriage and death records from 1826 to 1912 in the Łomża branch of the Polish State Archives. In addition, we created indices (with fathers’ names) for the surviving 1914 and 1922 to 1935 records. Several years of Alegata records are also included.

 

(Alegata - also known as Marriage Supplements or Annexes - are a group of documents that form a more detailed record of the betrothal than the marriage record.  Alegata files include the marriage banns posted in the synagogue for 3 consecutive weeks. Other documents may be birth protocols (extracts of original registrations or sworn statements) for the bride and groom, divorce or army records. There is often additional valuable information in Alegata files that does not appear in the marriage record.)

 

The 1826 to 1839 records are actually from nearby Sniadowo where Jews registered their life-cycle events in those years.

 

As Town Leader, it would be my pleasure to send you a full description of the Phase 3 project and explain how you will be able to obtain these extracts as well as digital images of your family records up to 1912, before they go online.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.
