(Austria) Update on Legislation Permitting Dual Citizenship for the Descendants of Austrian Holocaust Survivors #austria-czech

Jan Meisels Allen
 

On November 5, 2018 I posted about the confirmation I received >from the
Austrian General Counsel to the United States in Washington DC about an
amendment to the Austrian Citizenship Law amendment introduced as Private
members' Bill on 25 October 2018. Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz
announced the proposal in November. To read the bill supported by the
government and introduced on October 25 see:
https://www.parlament.gv.at/PAKT/VHG/XXVI/A/A_00438/index.shtml) It is in
German and to translate it, use a service such as google translate:
https://translate.google.com

Two different Israeli newspapers have varying stories about what is
happening in the Austrian Parliament regarding this bill. The Times of
Israel states that Austrian Government remains fully committed to advancing
citizenship of descendants of Austrian Holocaust victims, rebuffing a report
that claims that parts of the ruling coalition were stalled on the reform.
The Austrian Ambassador to Israel, Martin Weiss, said, " Amending the
Austrian Citizenship Law in order to extend the Austrian citizenship to
Shoah victims' descendants enjoys wide support by all political parties
represented in the Austrian Parliament. The government in Vienna remains
fully committed to advancing legislation granting citizenship to the
descendants of Austrian Holocaust victims, Austrian officials insisted,
rebuffing a report claiming that parts of the ruling coalition were stalling
on the promised reform."

"Amending the Austrian Citizenship Law in order to extend the Austrian
citizenship to Shoah victims' descendants enjoys wide support by all
political parties represented in the Austrian Parliament," Martin Weiss, the
country's ambassador in Tel Aviv, told The Times of Israel.
"It is true that the current overhaul of the Austrian Citizenship Law, of
which this provision is part of, is a slow process. However, amending basic
citizenship laws is - entirely unrelated to the issue of extending the
Austrian citizenship to Shoah victims' descendants - always a politically
sensitive process," he added.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that the plan to give descendants of
Holocaust victims Austrian citizenship "was stymied" by the far-right
Freedom Party. Haaretz said the proposed bill would "be saying it would set
a precedent for other foreigners. The precedent would be," unprecedented
because it would allow these children and grandchildren of Holocaust victims
to hold dual citizenship, although Austrian law doesn't currently permit
this. The opposition plans to introduce a similar bill on Thursday to force
the government to address the delay."

Opposition leader Pamela Rendi-Wagner of the Social Democratic Party favors
the proposal, saying it is aimed at correcting the injustice committed
against former Austrian citizens. She added that December 2018 was an ideal
time to pass this legislation.

According to Haaretz, Kurz's leading coalition partner is the Freedom Party,
which was founded by neo-Nazi activists in the 1950s and since then has come
to represent the extreme right-wing of Austria's political system.

New files added to the Vilnius District Research Group of LitvakSIG #lithuania

Jill <ja324435@...>
 

I have added two new files to the many now available to contributors to
the Vilnius District Research Group (DRG) of LitvakSIG.

The first is a Draft List containing the names of merchants >from 1878.
The "comments" column has a lot of information about the person: who
they lived with, their date of birth, in some cases their address,
the name of the school they attended, etc. There are 424 lines.

The second file is a draft list >from 1908 and there are 2,125 lines
of information. If you would like to see these and many other lists
that we have translated, you need to contribute $100 to Vilna DRG.
That will give you five years of access to our files on Excel
spreadsheets and you can download them, sort them as you want or
just browse them. They will be put onto our "All Lithuania Database",
which is free to search, 18 months after they are available =
to contributors.

If you are researching your family in the Vilnius area, please consider
contributing to the group. Just go to our site here:
https://www.litvaksig.org/ Along the green bar at the top, choose
"membership and contributions" then chick on "join and contribute".
Select "Research groups for Districts and Gubernias", select "Vilnius"
from the District menu Type 100 as the amount in US dollars. Press
the "add to cart" button, and then the "checkout now" button. When your
contribution has been processed, you will receive instruction about how

New data added to All-Lithuania Database - 4th quarter update #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

The quarterly addition of new data to our All Lithuania Database (ALD) is
now searchable online at https://www.litvaksig.org/search-ald/
The following is a summary.

The grand total of new lines of data is 32,594.

Revision List Template (28,001 lines): Conscription lists for Vilnius city
and suburbs, as well as for Sejny Uyezd of Suwalki gubernia; family lists
for towns in the Zarasai district. A unique list in this upload is the 1942
census of the Siauliai ghetto, 4,733 lines.

Tax / Voters Template (3,320 lines): A variety of records for towns in the
Panevezys and Zarasai districts, including tax and elector lists, passport

Also, a list of craftsmen for the Zarasai district.

Internal Passports (1,273 lines): Foreign passport applications for Vilnius
City.

Please note that not all data in a particular template is actually data of
that specific type - e.g., in this upload, passport issuance records appear
in the tax & voter template; conscription lists appear in the revision list
template. Please look at all search results even if you don't think the
record type category is relevant to your search. You just never know what
you'll find.

Also, we note that all of these lists have been available to qualified donors
for at least the last 18 months. To become a qualified donor for a district or
project and gain first access to new translations, as well as spreadsheets
