A stunning article!

Question - is there any possibility - no matter how far-fetched - that
Father Desbois' interviews may reveal any names of victims of the killing
fields?
When a single trace cannot be found - of a grandparent or other family
members in Arolsen's records - does Desbois' book give hope for any
identification by villagers, etc?

Thank you for bringing the article to our attention!
For those Genners who haven't read Freya's posting, please see the

Dear Genners,

The following information is of the utmost importance to
all of us. There
was an article published in the Washington Post, by Randy
Herschaft, regarding
the Int'l Task Force on the Holocaust and it's
efforts to get governments to
assume greater responsibility for the protection of all
sites. Paul Shapiro
of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.
would be able to give
guidance to anyone that may want to help in that regard.

from the story:
Father Desbois' work is also having an impact on
efforts to preserve
Holocaust sites. In December, the 26-nation International
Task Force on
the Holocaust called on European governments to ensure the
protection of
locations such as the mass graves Desbois is uncovering,
according to
Shapiro, who helped draft the resolution.

The following links will allow you to read the entire
story;

Hi,

I heard Father DEBIOS speak last year at the Hertfordshire Learning
Exchange. His story was truly inspiring and one worthy of our support. If
you can get to hear him speak I would urge you to do so.

Best wishes,

Hidden Children in France - found after the Holocaust

I am looking for people that were hidden children in France during the
Holocaust and were found after the war by an English woman named Evelyn
FREEDMAN (now Evelyn CHENKIN) and returned to their family or to Jewish
organisations.

Between 1946-48 Evelyn, who was working at the London Beth Din, was sent
from England to France to find and retrieve Jewish hidden children. These
children, like many other Jewish children, had been placed in convents or
with Catholic families for safekeeping during World War Two. Some however,
were now being refused return to their family or to the Jewish organisations
that had placed them there.

Some of the names of people that I am looking for are:

Henri GABES

Lily SAMUELS (possibly now lives in Australia)

Bernard KOHN

I have been documenting Evelyn's story for some years now. Her book,
"Gathering the Remnants" details her journey in France over those two years.
If anyone has any leads as to where these people are now or knows of a
similar story of someone who was a hidden child in France and was discovered
after the war by an English woman, please contact me. There were 60 children
on Evelyn's list.

Many thanks,

London Bow is easily found by Google - for instance
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bow,_London.
It's in the East End of London, populated over the years by waves of
immigrants, at one time by large numbers of Jews. It is said that you have
to be born within the sound of Bow Bells
(http://www.stmarylebow.co.uk/?Bow_Bells) to be a Cockney, a true Londoner.
My father also lived in Stoke Newington when he was young and used to say it
was popular with Jewish families at the time; he was sometimes asked to do
tasks for them on the Sabbath.

Harry, Selena and Ronald (shown as "Jessel Ronald") are on the 1911
Census in Hackney, on Kyverdale Road, Stoke Newington N. His place of
birth is listed as "London Bow", I don't know what that could refer
to.

Re: Bristol question (BALLIN) #unitedkingdom

Unfortunately, Temple Street Synagogue was built over when Victoria Street was
built to connect Bristol with the new station at Temple Meads.

I know of no records earlier than those of the Park Row synagogue, in the 1850's.
These include the burial of a Sarah BALLON buried 17 Jan 1849 in the Jewish
community Burial Ground at St Phillips. She died on 14 January 1849, and her
Hebrew name is given as Sarah bat Avraham Avinu (Sarah, daughter of Abraham our father), which is the term usually used for a convert.

I have been told that my maternal grandparents - Henoch/Hyman/Henry and
Ester Osner/Ouzner were members of one of the Philpot Street Synagogues
at the beginning of the 20th century. They were Sephardic Jews. I was
wondering whether there is such a thing as a list of the membership of
either or both at that time and, if so, what other information might be
with the names. My grandpa also had two brothers, Yossel/Joseph
(married to Sarah) and Yankel/Jacob married to Reyzla (this latter
couple is believed to have changed their name to Posner. They also
lived nearby and might have attended the same Shul. Is there anyone who
might have access to such a list? Myra Waddell (Adelaide, South Australia)

Finding death certificate in NJ #general

Mjn519@...
 

How does one find someone who may have died in New Jersey?

Received word >from NY Dept of Health this week that they have no record of
my gggrandfather's death in all of New York. So now I am looking at nearby
states, starting with New Jersey first.

I only have his name and time frame of years (1900-1907). Looking online,
the New Jersey Dept of Health and Senior Services requires city or county of
death, also the year. I have no idea. I would like to look at the whole
state (like they do in New York).

Is there a way to get around having to provide the above information but
just the name and time frame?

Thank you.
