Bernanke Is Not The First Galitzianer at the Federal Reserve #galicia

Dear Galitzianers,

I am reminded by Rabbi Shalom Bornstein >from Jerusalem
who is the source about Bernanke's first name Ben
Shalom that the late Arthur Burns who was the Chairman
of the Federal Reserve (1970-8) was also a Galitzianer.

Arthur Burns was born in 1904 in Stanislau (now in the
Ukraine). I do not have his original surname.

Re: Deportation Lists of Breslau Jews #germany

Jim Bennett <bennett@...>
 

Uri Nissel queried if lists exist showing the deportation of Breslau Jews,
including his three aunts: Rosa, Berta and Fania DAWIDOW.

At Yad Vashem Archives there are, on microfilm, several long lists of
Breslau Jews who were deported in several large groups, to Theresienstadt,
Auschwitz and perhaps elsewhere. Uri is fortunately in Jerusalem and can
easily access them.

In the Yad Vashem Central Database of Shoah Victims' Names, all three
sisters are memorialized in Pages of Testimony submitted decades ago by Mali
Dawidow, a fourth sister. Is she Uri's mother?

Finally, does anyone know whether the financial records of the seizure of
Jewish real property, bank accounts, and household effects exist in any
German of Polish archive concerning Breslau Jewry? Vast collections of such
records seem to exist for most regions of Germany. I've personally seen
hundreds of such files for the Jews of Berlin.

Dear Uri,
All three of your aunts are listed in the Memorial Book for the
Deportees to the Baltic States as deportees on the transport from
Breslau to Kowno, Fort IX, >from November, 25, 1941 who were murdered
upon arrival on November 29, 1941 (2000 people, among them 693 males,
1155 females and 52 children, according to the statistics of the head of
the "Einsatzgruppe A" Karl Jaeger) as follows:

DAWIDOW, Berta - born 26 Mar 1883 in Minsk, Belorussia
Last address in Breslau: Wallstr. 37

DAWIDOW, Fanny - born 19 Nov 1887 in Minsk, Belorussia
Same last address as Berta

DAWIDOW, Rosa - born 25 April 1890 in Berlin
Same address as Berta and Fanny

At least you can now know what happened to them more than sixty years
later and also know that their names are remembered, with kind regards

Dear German Gersiggers,
I am searching my great aunt Anna KALLMANN, born Bingen June 7,1860 and
deceased Theresienstadt October 20, 1942. Her married name was RATHKE
and her last place of residence before deportation was Wuppertal-Elberfeld.

I would thank a possible colleague living in the vicinity for checking
the addressbooks and / or phone directories of Wuppertal, say between 1880
and 1920, for anybody with name Rathke.

Given Names Pattern of Jews in the USA-The Bernanke Case #general

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners
I was curious when I first heard the Bernanke surname
by the time he was suggested to the post of the
Federal Reserve Chairman. I quickly discovered that he
has Galitzianer roots. But what is even more
interesting is his given name Ben Shalom.
Here is what I to found out >from Rabbi Shalom
Bronstein in Jerusalem who graciously gave me his
permission to qoute him:
"It was the tradition in the South that the
first born son received his mother's maiden name as
his first name. Thus, in Dillon there were people
with the name Smith Williamson and Brown Jones. The Bernankes
translated his mother's maiden name - Friedman to
Ben-Shalom."
I also enclose a link to an interesting article about
him in this week's "Forward".
http://www.forward.com/articles/6896
Rabbi Bronstein also reminded me that Bernanke is not
the first Galitzianer to serve as the Chairman of the
Federal Reserve. Arthur Burns who held this position
between 1970-8 was a native of Stanislau(nowadays in
the Ukraine).

This is a link to a photo of the tombstone of Moshe Nisan ben Moshe Nisan
FRANKLIN (FRENKEL), a brother of my great-grandfather. I have other photos
of similar stones. >from the ages and dates involved, it would appear that
the father may have died before the son was born.
http://www.lordbalto.com/Franklin/MorrisFFranklin.jpg.

Keep in mind that a lot can happen in 9 months. I have also seen references
to the idea that a child would be named after an ill parent. Keep in mind
that this whole concept has todo with tradition and, dare I say,
superstitution, rather than any kind of biblical injunction.

Another problem develops once this kind of thing happens. It then becomes
difficult to name a child after a grandfather without it looking like
the child was named after the father! The full progression in this branch
is Moshe, Moshe (Morris), Morton (Mordecai), Marshall/Marjorie! though
I haven't made direct contact with them, so other things may be going on.
