There was also an agricultural settlement/colony in Siberia, on the eastern
border of Russia, near Mongolia, called Birobijan (poor spelling). Jews
were sent there to solve "the Jewish problem" and to guard the eastern
front. Was this colony different than those on your very interesting
website?

Re: Hungary versus Austria?? #hungary

The WW1 started with the assination of archduke Franz Ferdinand in
Sarajevo on 28 June 1914 and ended 1918. In the Trianon treaty signed on
4. June 1920 Hungary lost substantial parts of the country. In the
bottom of this mail I give two articles which might give you some
detailed information. Trianon and the borders were and still are very
touchy and emotional questions.

About 10'500 articles can be found in the Internet about Hungary and Trianon, many of them treats the question very emotionally. Two articles >from the many thousend and one is with a card the following, may be you find them interesting.

http://www.imagesoft.net/hungary/hun101/fx010016.htm
Hungary's Nationalities Pre-Trianon

The inhabitants of what was left of Hungary numbered only 7.6 million in
a territory of 35,900 square miles. Rumania alone was granted 39,800
square miles, including Transylvania, or more than what was left to
Hungary. Czechoslovakia was given 23,800 square miles and Yugoslavia got
a similar slice, including Croatia, which had stood in partnership with
Hungary for 800 years. *
Even Austria was allotted 1,500 square miles of Western Hungary as a
ploy to poison relations between the two countries.
*
*
*
A Hungarian-Jewish alliance was formed.
Jewish self-identification as Hungarians was only partially motivated by
the advantages such declaration produced. A large segment of the Jewish
community enthusiastically and voluntarily submitted to the process of
Magyarization. Jews in Hungary spoke the Hungarian language, championed
the Hungarian culture, assimilated, intermarried and energetically
supported the objectives of Hungarian nationalism. This process of
Jewish acculturation was encouraged and rewarded by the Hungarian
establishment. In addition to offering badly needed numerical extension,
it also confirmed the claim of Hungarian cultural superiority. It could,
and did, serve as an example for the other minorities.


The URL bellow give a very detailed description also of the new borders.

Moderator VK: This discussion is beginning to stray >from our topic. Please limit questions and responses to issues related to identification of borders relevant to search for resources. As Tom and Gabor indicate, there is much information available on-line and in other sources for those interested in the historical issues related to WWI and the demise of the Austria-Hungarian monarchy.

Re: Hungary versus Austria?? #hungary

Eloedfamily@...
 

Two-thirds of Hungarian territory was annexed to the neighboring countries:
Rumania, Czechoslovakia, Karpath-Ukraine, Yugoslavia, and a small section to
Austria.

I do not believe anyone would have -- for economical or prestige reasons used
the Austrian definition.
You can't do that.
The birth location in some parts of pre-1920 Hungary by the end of the
century in some cases changed more then four times its geographical definition. With
that, the names of the locations changed to different languages as well.
It is a treacherous area to search in.

Moderator VK: I'm not sure what Leslie means when he states that one "can't" identify a place of residence in Austria. As noted in many previous discussions, the national boundaries of many places that were part of Hungary before the Treaty of Trianon changed frequently in the following years. My maps show that lands along the western borders of pre-Trianon Moson, Sopron, and Vas megye did become, and remain to this day, part of Austria.


Re: INSURANCE CLAIMS - Forced Labor camp in Turia Remete #hungary

I wonder, what kind of proof are they asking for?

Have you checked with the
INTERNATIONAL COMMISSION ON HOLOCAUST ERA INSURANCE CLAIMS
on their WEBsite at:

The site is multilingual, and will provide information how to file claims,
how to prove items.

I just noticed the other day, that the filing deadline is December 31, 2003
for certain insurance claims.

Anyone who may have a claim and did not file yet, be sure to check the above

Hell H-SIGers,
One of my relatives, Sandor Katz born1897, is mentioned in Joszef Buscko
book "The Jews of Ujfeherto" as having a big farm in Patroha "Katz Sandor -
farmer in Patroha. B.Ujfeherto, 1897, old landowner family. Had 100 hold
farm since 1928, m. Gluck Helen, ch. Maria, Zsuzsanna." (translated from
Hungarian).
Does anyone know where Patroha is?
Does anyone know why Buscko stated "old landowner family" in his book?
Better, though, does anyone know anything about this "old landowner" family?
Thank you,

Nevek Bekes & Zala #hungary

Gábor Hirsch <hirsch@...>
 

I am somehow disappointed it seems that there are two new volumes of the
series NEVEK published, according the information of Dan Wyman bookstore
http://www.danwymanbooks.com/nevek.htm according the page information
since 22. July 2003 and neither the israeli members nor anybody else
made any notice of this event, I was looking for the volume of Bekes for
several years, it was announced some 12 vyears ago in Hajdu county
Nevek. One of the drowback seems for me the high price for transcibing
some 6000 names.

Thank you all for your replies.

Waulkawiska is also referred to as Volkavisk. There is a town called
Volkavisk that is the same town or near a town called Svisloch. The town
I am interested in is close to Bialystock.

The one I am not interested in is in the center of Belarus.

I apologize if I have not gotten some details correct.

Perhaps there are other people who read this website that have more
accurate information than I have right now or can explain it better.

Roni,

This is the same town in Western Belarus, close to the Polish border.
It was known as Wolkowysk, and during the interwar pieriod it was within
the Polish Bialystok Province. It's distance >from town Bialystok is 53
miles and >from the City of Minsk it is 138 miles, which is not placing it
in the centre of Belarus.

There is no other town by this name in Belarus.
