Anyone a descendant of Sarah (ABRAMS) and/or Sam COHEN who married in
Boston on June 24, 1903? Sam was a divorcee when he married Sarah. My
guess is that it was a first marriage for her.

I am looking for a scan or high quality picture of the town map
contained in the Yizkor book for Teleneshti :

Pinḳas Ṭeleneshṭi : sefer-zikaron li-Yehude Ṭeleneshṭi-Besarabyah

The online map uploaded to the Yizkor Book Translation Database is of
poor quality. I am collecting and translating into English all
available maps for the towns of Bessarabia. As completed, they are
being uploaded to the Map Section of the Bessarabia Sig website. If
you have a copy of this book and can help, please contact me

Thank you,

No. However you cannot take a surname to show descendence, you need to know the
ancestors.

i have checked it in JewishGen database and i just got the similiar surnames
results
A [Dutch] Jew can have any surname, only common Jewish names give a hint, and just
that. Especially during the French Napoleontic occupation, some typically jewish
names were adopted by non-jews.

such as Weide, Kamp, Wedekamp, etc.
Usually "van der Weide", "van der Kamp", btw.

It's been a long long time since I needed to turn to JewishGen for my research.
But as before, the response was incredibly helpful. This time in my search for the
Nachmann's and the Joseph's, I was just as amazed at the wonderful and enthusiastic
replies that I received as I had been in the past. So thank you JewishGen and
thanks to each and every one of you who jumped in so willingly and came up with
the information I needed.and more.
Gratefully,

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

There were no good choices for Jews after Germany and the Soviet Union signed the
Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact of 1939 that carved up Poland, Lithuania and other
countries into spheres of influence. (A main German aim in the pact was the
"nonaggression" agreement between the two countries that allowed Germany to turn
its attention to other targets - until Hitler ended it by attacking Soviet
positions in Poland). As Germany tightened its grip on Poland, many Polish Jews
sought refuge in Soviet-occupied Lithuania. Among them were the Drucker brothers
who found themselves "lost, wet, hungry and exhausted" along the Polish-Lithuanian
border. That was only the start of their hardships, according to "Residence in
Siberia," a chapter >from the Yizkor book of Jordanow in southern Poland, 30 miles
south of Krakow. First they were betrayed by a farmer at the border and turned over
to the Soviets who detained them in prison and then condemned them to three years
forced labor. After what seemed like a "never-ending" trip of many weeks in railway
cars with barred windows, they arrived at a camp where lack of food, lack of
medicine and harsh weather caused many prisoners to be sick and physically drained
by the hard work. This is the story of the Druckers' ordeal and that of those who
suffered along with them, and how they learned to cope and survive..

Searching: Lilli (Lily), daughter of Emma (nee Krause) and Otto Heller #austria-czech

tomnavon@...
 

Dear friends and colleagues,

As part of my research about Otto Heller (1897-1945), the Austrian
communist of Jewish origin, I am looking for a contact with his only
daughter Lilli, or any of her descendants or relatives.

Lilli (or Lily) was born probably in the late 1920's. In the late
1930's she was in exile in France together with her parents. In 1943
Otto was deported to Auschwitz, and Lilli with her mother Emma to
Ravensbrueck (a women concentration camp in Germany). Otto did not
survive, but Lilli and Emma were liberated and came back to live in
Paris.

Since the information about Heller is scarce - any connection to the
family could be very helpful.

Please pass this message over to anyone that might have any idea how
to reach Lilli or other relatives.

If you have any information that could lead to Lilli, or another
relative - please contact me through tomnavon@gmail.com

Gratefully,

Memorial Wall in Pinkus Synagogue, Prague #austria-czech

macgregor.eve@...
 

As I posted this request in 2011, without any response., I am
reposting in the hope that some information is available..
Thank You in anticipation.

Having visited the Pinkus Synagogue in Prague I was Very Moved and
impressed with the detailed Information of names of the 77297 victims
displayed on the walls.
But I was disappointed not to be able to find some of my family
listed. And have subsequently found out additional members whom may
have been listed.

Does anyone know, if there is an list off all these names available.
Or >from where these names and details were obtained and if we are
able to access this information on line. As I live in Australia, I
will most likely not have another opportunity to visit
Prague again.

I have searched the Yad Vashem website but still have names missing.

(Austria) Legislation In Parliament Permitting Dual Citizenship for the Descendants of Austrian Holocaust Survivors #austria-czech

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Upon reading the article in JC News about Austria preparing to offer
citizenship to Holocaust victim's descendants, referring to a statement by
Austrian Chancellor Kurz, I contacted the Austrian Counsel General to the
United States in Washington D.C., Josef Prelec for confirmation.
See: https://tinyurl.com/y7qz56ef original url:
https://www.thejc.com/news/world/austria-to-offer-passports-to-holocaust-vic
tims-children-and-grandchildren-sebastian-kurz-confirms-1.471942 .

Counsel General Prelec advised me that according to the information
published on the website of the Austrian Parliament, an amendment of the
Austrian Citizenship Law was introduced as a Private Members' Bill on 25
October 2018 (see
https://www.parlament.gv.at/PAKT/VHG/XXVI/A/A_00438/index.shtml). While he
is unable to say when the new regulations will be implemented, the
legislative process for granting citizenship to descendants of Austrian
Victims of the Holocaust are underway.

The aforementioned link to the Austrian Parliament is only in German. It
will open to a page that gives information on the bill and another pdf with
the bill- also in German. You can translate the bill by copying and pasting
the words into a translation service such as google translate,
https://translate.google.com. The bill is Citizenship Act 1985, amendment
(438 / A). It is very short and basically says to amend the Citizenship Act
of 1985 permitting dual citizenship to " the Victims of National Socialism
of Austria the present laudable Application should be taken without further
delay". It has been assigned to the Internal Affairs Committee and the
author of the bill is by Member Stephanie Krisper. The bill does not
enumerate which descendants even though the JC Article says children and
grandchildren.

Please do not ask me for any further information as this is all I know as of
November 5, 2018, the date of Counsel General Prelec's email response to me
and the above is all that is on the Parliament's website as of this posting.
