"The Last Days of Buczacz" UCLA Lecture #galicia

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

There is a lecture that may be of interest to Galitzianers, or students of
the Holocaust, taking place in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 20th at
UCLA's Faculty Center at 7:30PM.

“The Last Days of Buczacz: Judicial Perspectives on the Destruction of a
Multiethnic Galician Town”

Speaker: Omer Bartov, The John P. Birkelund Distinguished Professor of
European History at Brown University

Event Description:

This lecture will discuss the fate of the Galician town of Buczacz, now
located in Western Ukraine, during the Holocaust, as reflected in
testimonies given during trials that took place in the federal Republic of
Germany in the late 1950s and 1960s. The population of Buczacz was made up
of Jews, Poles, and Ukrainians; the interrelationship between these groups
is the main focus of Bartov’s current project on Buczacz as a representative
town in the eastern European borderlands. This lecture will be concerned
primarily with the manner in which postwar German courtrooms reconstructed
the events of the Holocaust, how they defined the role, motivation, and
relative guilt of the perpetrators, to what extent and for what reasons they
trusted Jewish witnesses, and by which means they recreated the
sociopolitical context in which such local cases of genocide occurred during
World War II.

This event is the “1939” Club Distinguished Lecture in Holocaust Studies,
cosponsored by the UCLA Center for European and Eurasian Studies.

Lectures are open to the public at no charge, but ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS
REQUIRED.

To RSVP please email cjs@... or call the RSVP line at (310)

Please note that seating is limited and will be available on a first-come,

genealogists throughout the year. For more info visit their website:

searching Josef Samuel Terkel or Terkeltaub from London #unitedkingdom

anat shilansky <anatshil@...>
 

My Grandmoter had an uncle named Josef-Samuel Terkel/Terkeltaub.
He was born at 1883 in the town of Zloczow (today Zolochiv) in Galicia,
Poland (now in Ukraine).

His parents were Fabian Terkel and Zemach Stern.
He had two sisters (Regina and Rochma) and a brother (Baruch).
He immigrated to London sometimes between the end of the 19th century and
the first years of the 29th century.
His wife was called serale - probably Sara.

Since world war 2 The connection had lost and his brother and sisters were
killed.

Does any one know of such a family? We had no success in finding anything.
Thank you

It is *not* correct to say that all naturalizations were performed in federal
court after 1906. Any court of record could perform naturalizations, and
many did. For example, the Supreme Court of New York County (Manhattan) has
a huge collection of massive bound volumes of naturalization records
performed by that court (a county court) - most of them after 1905.

After 1906 the court merely had to use forms specified by the Federal
government and to file a copy of the Petition for Naturalization with the
feds.
This is more like what I had understood. And the copies of the
Petitions are at NARA, so I could see them in Washington, once I can
define the date and court.

Re: Abram Moise #france

Eve Line Blum <eve.line.blum@...>
 

Your question is among the ones which are very often asked on Jewish
genealogical forums and everyone may discuss during years about a
first question : who is Jewish ? What means "to be jewish" ? The most
common answer (not everybody agree with) is that someone is Jewish if
his mother was. Now, as written on the site of the Cercle de
Genealogie Juive in Paris http://www.genealoj.org as a header of the
"Questions/Answers" : "Many readers are asking whether such or such
surname is Jewish or not. >from a general point of view, this question
has no answer since the same name can be shared by Jews and by
non-jews as well. Nevertheless, some surnames are often borne by Jews
and other ones rarely. The only serious method consists in building
one's family tree until indisputable documents are found." I suggest
you ask your question on the above site (click on the English

Can I assume this man was definitely Jewish?
