ViewMate translation request - German #general

Omri Arnon <omri@...>
 

Dear Group,

I've posted a document in German for which I need a translation. It is on
ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM72457

This is a document relating to a Synagogue seat in Hranice relating to the
Wolf family (which later emigrated to Hungary). On the right hand side page
there are several names. I am particularly interested to know what is the
relationship between them. Is Sigmund related to Jakob Israel (My G5F)? how?
Are there any detailed about the people mentioned? also if possible who are
the Wolfs mentioned on the left hand page and is there any relationship
between them.

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page.
Thank you very much.

(Hungary-Spain) Spanish "Angel of Budapest" Sanz-Briz Saved 5,000 Jews #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

A Spanish diplomat, Angel Sanz-Briz, served in Budapest during World War ll
and was responsible in 1944 for saving 5,000 Hungarian Jews >from certain
death. He is known as the "Angel of Budapest". He hid 5,000 Jews by using
Spanish protection on using 200 approved passports with added letters so
that they multiplied the number permitted. He also hid them in apartment
buildings he placed under Spanish protection. The rooms were overcrowded,
people hungry and cold, and diseased. But they survived.

To read the story and how Franco's Spain never recognized San-Briz for his
bravery and how Yad Vashem recognized him in the ranks of the righteous see:

He turned that to 200 Sephardic families an those 200 families were
