I'd like to say that it was an honor for me to be able to photograph the
burial books >from Eger, and along with my sister, transcribe them, post
the information on our personal family web site, and donate the effort
to the JOWBR back in 2003.

If anyone would like to discuss the topic with me, or obtain a copy of
the photos, feel free to contact me offline.

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen question about Emergency Passport Application - beyond the Index? #general

31st IAJGS Conference <dc2011_conference@...>
 

Dear Allen:

I assume that the index that you are referring to is the one created by the
Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington more than 12 years ago. This
was compiled by volunteers >from our society who went through the actual
paperwork for the Emergency Passports at Archives II in College Park,
Maryland. The people working there will not know anything about the index as
the index is not an official document. The researchers compiling the list
pulled out only what they assumed were 'Jewish names.' That is why the
valet's name is not likely to be in the index.

I checked my copy of the index and you should also know that the location of
the file is 36/04. You will need this in addition to the information that
you have. You might try contact the Archives through their website
http://archives.gov/research/ to see if you can order copies of Moses and
Sara Frank's information. The information for both is in one file.

Another alternative is to join us >from August 14-19, 2011 at the 31st IAJGS
International Conference on Jewish Genealogy. We will have representatives
from the Archives at the conference who can guide you regarding the
Emergency Passports, also known as RG 84 and while in Washington, DC you can
go out to nearby College Park, MD to actually see the documents in the
Index.

The destruction of the Polish Jewish and Christian communities of
western Poland, at the very commencement of the Second World War on
1 September 1939, is an established fact. However, the details of
this destruction have not been widely disseminated.

For genealogists trying to research that specific period in the
region that bore the brunt of the attack, we are mainly reliant on
Jewish and non Jewish survivors of the slave labour camps and death
camps to provide a picture of what happened to the Jewish community.

There is no doubt that the Polish army put up a heroic defence against
the Germans, but they were absolutely no match for the invading Nazi
forces - anymore than was any other European national army of that
period. The German military machine, combined with the fanatical
madness of the Nazi regime, was unstoppable. Border towns with mixed
Christian and Jewish communities, such as Dzialoszyn and Szczercow,
were totally destroyed and their evacuated populations became a mass
of refugees on pock marked roads who sought to find somewhere to stay
in other locations in the region.

For Jewish people there seems to have been rarely an opportunity to
escape into the General Government area. Almost immediately they were
detained and sent to ghetto prisons. Between June and September 1942
these ghettos were 'liquidated' with the surviving inhabitants sent
mainly to the Chelmno death camp.

My specific interest in these issues was prompted when I started to
build the ShtetLinks websites for Szczercow, Dzialoszyn and Osjakow.
Each had their own story to tell and each had one distinct similarity.
The similarity was that the overwhelming majority of the civilian
population (Jewish and Christian) was caught in the Nazi net with no
opportunity to find refuge in a 'safe haven'.

Of the three sites, the relevant circumstances are best described by
Toby Kormornik in her testimony on the Szczercow site
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Szczercow/
and in the narrative details which are written on the 1939-1945 page.

I don't see why it is ever necessary to close a post - you cut yourself off >from
the possibility of learnng something more. In the post I had in mind, the
poster closed the post after one day, having received one reply to his request
for translation of a Yiddish letter. The translation was incomplete, and
several items of genealogical importance were left out. The closing took place
between my first seeing the post and my readiness to translate, a period of just
a few minutes.

Why would someone want to cut himself off >from possible further information? It
makes the potential answerer think: why bother, if this is how interested the
inquirer really is? You could of course say that the poster thought the answer
was complete, but after just one day? Why the impatience? Why not wait to see
if something additional is forthcoming?

I should add that this is not the first time I have seen posts prematurely
closed, and information therefore missed.
