Attention to Allen Meisels

Dear Allen,

in the Neue Zuercher Zeitung on Saturday 21 September, I found the following
news about Austrian passport for NS victims. I send you the original German text
and the translation in English.

Wien erleichtert Nachfahren von NS-Opfern Buergerrecht.

(afp) Direkte Nachfahren =Oesterreichischer NS-Opfer koennen
kuenftig leichter die Oesterreichische Staatsbuergerschaft erhalten. Das Parlament in Wien
verabschiedete am Donnerstagabend mit grosser Mehrheit eine Gesetzesreform.
Damit erhalten Kinder, Enkelkinder und Urenkel von juedischen und anderen
NS-Opfern, die vor Verfolgung im Dritten Reich aus Oesterreich
flohen oder bis 1955 Oesterreich verliessen, einen erleichterten Zugang zu einem
Oesterreichischen Pass. Bisher galt als Frist der 9. Mai 1945. Der Praesident der
Israelitischen Kultusgemeinde, Oskar Deutsch, begruesste den Beschluss. Damit werde
die Republik Oesterreich ihrer historischen Verantwortung gerecht, erklaerte
er. Er dankte den Parteien OeVP, SP und Neos, die jeweils Initiativen fuer
ein entsprechendes Gesetz gestartet hatten. Die neuen Staatsbuerger
muessen nicht in Oesterreich leben und auch nicht ihre urspruengliche Nationalitaet
aufgeben. Damit gilt eine Sonderregelung, da die doppelte Staatsbuergerschaft in
Oesterreich nur in sehr wenigen Faellen zulaessig ist.



Vienna facilitates descendants of NS victims Citizenship

(afp) - Direct descendants of Austrian victims of the Nazi regime will in
future be able to get Austrian citizenship much easier. The Parliament in Vienna
adopted on Thursday evening with a large majority a reforming of the law. This means that
children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Jewish and others Nazi victims who
were persecuted in the Third Reich fled >from Austria or until 1955 left Austria, a
relieved access to an Austrian Passport. Previously, the deadline was considered to be
May 9, 1945.
The president of the Israelite Kultusgemeinde, Oskar Deutsch, welcomed the decision. This
would the Republic of Austria "has been able to preserve its historical responsibility,"
explained he. He thanked the parties OeVP, SPOe and Neos, each of which has initiatives
for the relevant law.

The new citizens don't have to be live in Austria and don't have to give up
your original nationality.
There is therefore a special arrangement, since the double Citizenship in
Austria is permissible only in very few cases


Sincerely

Rene Loeb, President of the Swiss Society of Jewish Genealogy

A German Jew Who Died In Teheran in 1945 #austria-czech

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,

I had a chance to look at a partial list of graves in the Jewish Cemetery in Teheran
and saw there an entry in Persian alphabet which reads like Gelb Kroner Aldsa BRANSTIN.
The way the entries are organized differs >from what we are used to in
other communities and it may contain the deceased father's name as well.
The surname is probably BERNSTEIN or BRAUNSTEIN. He died in 1945 and
the remark on the entry is that he is German.

I am not sure that he was German but probably spoke German. I wonder whether
it rings a bell.

Convention for Dates #austria-czech

David Lewin
 

To whom do I address a request for a change in Jewishgen "norm"
which, in my opinion affects a large part of our membership?

I would like Jewishgen to change their convention to and adopt a Date
Display which use three letters of the Alphabet for the months names
rather than two digits.

The difference between the American "norm" and the non-American norm
causes no end of problems:- Is 02/07 the 7th o February or is it
the 2nd of July?

Saraspatak and Budapest cemeteries, responses to Richard Sobel's postiny #hungary

Jake Jacobs
 

This message is >from Richard Sobel <sobel2@fas.harvard.edu>, who tried to post this message to the list and failed. He asked me to try.

A 2nd cousin recently visited Sarospatak where our grandparents came from, and tried to get into the Jewish cemetery but it was locked, and he was told there is no caretaker. Yet he took pictures over the wall and it seems better cared for (grass relatively short) than when I visited many years ago. Does anyone know anything about the cemetery there, e.g. A list of burials, caretaker, etc.? Also does anyone know if there are any Jews left there, and have any contacts? By the way, the Synagogue is a computer store but has a picture of the Synagogue on the front.
Also, the cousin and a Hungarian cousin visited the Budapest cemetery, and the found the graves of the brother of our grandparents who stayed when the rest of the family came to the US. (See "Abris Survived," Avotaynu, Winter 2009). Does anyone know anything about the Budapest cemetery or have contacts there? R

Moderator: Please contact Richard off-list if you have information.
