Outreach to Holocaust Survivors: Galicia Jewish Museum new exhibition for 2014 #general

Pamela Weisberger
 

Gesher Galicia, in cooperation with The Galicia Jewish Museum in
Krakow, is reaching out to Holocaust survivors (>from towns that were
once in Galicia) to tell their stories to new audiences through an
important exhibition planned for 2014 at the Museum.

The Galicia Jewish Museum was established in 2004 with the mission to
commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and celebrate the 800-year
history of Jews in Poland. Their goal is to impart knowledge, but also
encourage reflection. The Museum is located in the heart of Kazimierz,
Krakow's historic Jewish district. It is a dynamic, growing cultural
institution that seeks to raise awareness of Poland's Jewish past,
present and future among Poles and people >from around the world.

In 2006, the Galicia Jewish Museum in cooperation with AJC and PAJA
prepared an exhibition called "Polish Heroes: Those Who Saved Jews"
Its goal was to honor the Righteous Among the Nations and present
profiles of some of the people >from Krakow and the surrounding area
who have received this title.

At the moment, they are preparing a companion exhibition that will
explore the topics raised earlier >from a different perspective, and
will be focused on people >from historic Galicia who survived the
Second World War and the Holocaust. The exhibition is planned for
2014.

The new exhibition will present the fates of survivors, to show
similarities and differences in their stories; and, on a symbolic
level, show moments where they did or did not receive help. Presented
visually, the entwining stories of different lives and experiences
will form the culmination of the exhibition.

The goal of this project is to explore survivors stories and
recollections, presenting different paths and manners of survival.
They would like to make visitors to the exhibition aware of the many
elements, the complicated and dangerous situations that made up the
experience of survivors during the Holocaust. The planned exhibition
is also a way of honoring all those who survived these horrors, as
well as recognizing any who aided them during these times.

This exhibition will not be possible without the help of the members
of the Jewish genealogical community, many of whom are either
survivors or are in touch with survivors. They need your (their)
memories and recollections and are counting on your willingness to
share your stories of these tragic events with the next generation.
Below is a link to a basic survey that will help them start the
project which requires only short answers. Based on this form they
will contact you with more detailed questions.

Please keep in mind that those responding to the survey should be from
towns in what was "historic Galicia" - today towns in Poland and
Ukraine. Due to the specific nature of this exhibition, the Museum
staff only wants to hear directly >from living survivors to get their
first-hand recollections, i.e not family members of Holocaust
survivors who have passed away. If you know of living survivors who
are not actively online -- or don't own a computer -- you certainly
can assist them with accessing and filling out the survey...and this
mitzvah would be greatly encouraged. This would also extend to
outreach at old-age homes in your community, if you know of survivors
from Galicia who are residents there, even if they are not your
family.

the survey, you can contact the Galicia Jewish Museum's Education

- Researching Bernhard STIEGLITZ - Chemnitz #germany

Juergen Nitsche <JuNitsche@...>
 

Bernhard STIEGLITZ

We are going to set a Stolperstein (stumbling block) in Chemnitz to
remember Bernhard STIEGLITZ. He was born in 1910 in Nordhausen
(Thuringia). His parents were Abraham STIEGLITZ and Berta STIEGLITZ n.
SPATZ. They were born in Kalusz.

Bernhard Stieglitz worked as pastry cook in the department store
SCHOCKEN in Chemnitz. In 1933 he was dismissed because of illness. Later
he was a patient of the mental home in Zschadrass (Saxony). In August
1939 he was deported to Poland.

His parents lived later in Wesermuende and were deported in October,
1938 to Poland. Abraham and Berta Stieglitz were killed in the Ghetto Minsk.

We are looking for information about the life of Bernhard STIEGLITZ
before 1932 and after 1939. We believe, he was killed in autumn 1939 in
one of the mental homes in occupied Poland.

Who may help us to find more information about Bernhard STIEGLITZ and
his parents, about their suffering?

All advice and information are very welcome.

Thank you very much in advance!

Both places are in Slovakia,

The Slovak National Archives in Bratislava and the regional archives
in Banska Bystrica, Bratislava, Bytca, Kosice, Levoca, Nitra, and Presov
accept written and e-mail requests concerning extracts, copies and search
from archival documents.
Each of the regional archives (Statny archivy) covers several areas identified
as branches [pobocka].

Inquiries directed to the National Archives will be referred to the
appropriate regional archive , which will notify the researcher,
typically in Slovak, whether records have been located . If the archive
finds the information requested, the Slovak Embassy will notify the
researcher and indicate the required fee.

You can find contact information for the national archive on the website
at http://www.minv.sk/?slovensky-narodny-archiv

The matriky in the regional archives include birth, baptismal, marriage
and death records as well as tax records, deeds, charters and nobility records.
In most cases, records can now be ordered by E-mail

You may also be able to find the records you want on the Family Search
