Are you talking of the "Chizhik Pizhik", that little bronze bird
installed on the Fontanka River?

several times.

First World War Jewish War Memorial, Vienna - Virtual Tour *Premiere* #poland

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I would like to invite all readers of JRI-Poland to take a free virtual tour
of the First World War, Vienna Jewish War Memorial. I do not think it has
been photographed and displayed systematically before. It is a genealogical
treasure house, especially for Galicians who are sadly very well-represented
on the plaques. There must be about 1,300 names in all. Why these names have
been chosen, out of what must have been 1000s of Jewish casualties, is a bit
of a mystery. I have not been able to get a sensible answer. I suspect they
are young men and officers who were brought back to hospital in Vienna, where
they died.

As this is in Zentralfriedhof Tor 1, I have added a dedication to Mr Walter
Pagler on the Map of the Zentralfriedhof. He died recently and did much
clearing, restoration and indexing work there, when no-one else was
involved. His caravan by Tor 1 was a sight everyone knew. We owe him a lot.

There are also 21 Russian Jewish POWs buried at Tor 1 and I have included
them on this site [see photo 24]. Here are the names:
BUNIMOVIC Benjamin; FEJBISCHOWITZ Chaim Tabel; FERZIKOFF Leiser;
HERMANN Chanton; JAKUBSCHITZKY Mendelowitsch Michael;
JAMPOLSKY Isak Chaim; KARABAN Moritz; KINARSCHANSKY Szulim;
KURTAUL Jsak Rabi; LIWSCHITZ Juda Jerscha; LONLEG Srula;
MALINSKI Abram; NAGY Moses Michael; NOPARSTEK Nussan;
ROSENBERG Hersch Abraham; SETZMANN Meier; SCHADZ Isak;
SCHNEIDER Abraham Moses Saloman; SCHWARZBART Jechiel;
SILBEROW Aron Baruch; SUCHOLWSKY Boris {Wolf}.

This is the first time these names have been indexed and listed together with
their dates of death, ages and grave numbers. As yet, I have no photographs.

Please also look at young Heinz KOCH's [>from Saaz, Bohemia] grave - he died
on 7 April 1915 aged 22 for his Kaiser, his Vaterland and his "Judisches
Volk" [Photo 23]. This was only 25 years before the holocaust.

Looking at the site you can use:
Thumbnail - slide the cursor over each picture to read contents.
Detail: Individual shots - all magnify, so you can read names and annotations.
Slide show - all are annotated. In the slide show, you can read the annotation
by clicking on the letter *I* in the centre of each slide - Slow>fast speed.

There is a lot of detail and annotation to read. I hope this new work will
provide links for some of you:

Re: Could Tshernianka be Trzcinica? #galicia

Brian J. Lenius <brian@...>
 

Sandi,

No, Tshernianka was not Trzcinica. The place you are looking for
is Czernianka. It is similar, but not quite the same spelling as
Czerniawka proposed by Alexander. That place was in the A.D. of
Jaworow.

Czernianka was a hamlet belonging to the community of Swiecany
("Genealogical Gazetteer of Galicia", p. B-10). It was situated in
the Administraive District of Jaslo. It was located at approximately
4946 3858 (Greenwich) or 4946 2118 (Ferro). According to the
"Gemeindelexikon von Galizien" (subject of many messages of late)
it had 78 houses with a total population of 405 in 1900.

BTW, for those who attended my "Jurisdictions" talk at the IAJGS
conference last month, this is one of the examples of a community
(Swiecany) that was not actually the name of a village. In other
words, there was no village by the name of Swiecany, but that was
the name of the "community." This community included many villages
and hamlets by various names including Czernianka.

Jaslo is located some 70 miles East of Krakow, thus the town in
question cannot be located 'near' Krakow. Probably Krakow is listed
there since Jaslo was located after World War I in Krakow Province.
(Before the war Jaslo was part of Lwow Province.)

The nearest soundex candidates for Tchernianka are: Czerniawka at
5004 2301 and Czarnorzeki near Krosno.

Would you be able to give me more information about a "thesis by Morton Kessler written in the 80's" about Trochenbrod?

In February, my book, " Anna's Shtetl, " was published by the University of Alabama Press. It's the true story of the childhood of a St. Louis woman, Anna Spector Dien, who grew up in the Ukraine >from 1905 to 1919. In the book. I survey the autobiographical memoirs published in English by men and women who spent their childhoods in a shtetl. If Kessler's thesis falls into that category, I would be interested in seeing it.

Any help will be appreciated.

Eliana Aizim
 

Hello JewishGenners,
I found in the Hamburg Passenger List the given name Zachower
for a cousin who lived in Podolia Gub, Ukraine, and immigrated to
Brazil. Here her name became Eva. As I have never heard the
name Zachower before, I wonder if it really exists, or if it could
have been misspelled. In this last case, what would have been her
correct name?
I have searched Google and also the Ukraine SIG > Given Names
DataBase and the closest names I came to were Zahava, Zehuva
and Khove.

Please send your response directly to me: aizim@...
Thank you.

Dear Sandi,

Tshernianka is most probably: Czernianka - Jaslo Administrative
District. Czernianka is (was?) a hamlet and part of the Swiecany
Community. Swiecany is 8.3 miles W of Jaslo. Coordinates: 4946 2117.
