New book about the Jewish community in Satoraljaujhely (Hungary) #general

Andres Carciente
 

It has been just published in Israel a new book about
Satoraljaujhely by Mr. Mnashe Davidovits:

It provides two lists:
1)*Martyrs* and
2)*Survivors*

As there are not deportation lists available(till
now), what Mr. Davidovits did was to collect the birth
certificates >from the children born between 1928 and
1944:they were the most vulnerable ones(age 0 till 16)
together with their mothers.
The author also collected information >from Yad Vashem
and >from survivors' testimonies.

The book includes important sections >from Meir SAS'
famous book, that is out of print(Toronto,1986) and a
classic by itself, and also sections >from Mr.CSIKI's
book.

The book is trilingual:
English,Hungarian and Hebrew.

Question on 19th Century Lithuanian Family Lists #general

Roy Ogus <ogus@...>
 

I have found a few family records on an 1890's Lithuanian Family List
that that puzzle me somewhat. I know that the families who are
documented in these records had left Lithuania some years before the
date of the Family List, and yet the Family List contains current,
up-to-date information about them.

In one case the family had left Lithuania to live in a neighboring
Eastern European country at least 12 years prior to the date of the
Family List. The children of this family were all born in the new
country, and yet the Family List record is up to date with the details
of the children's names and ages.

In a second record, I know that the family had already left Lithuania
for the New World, and yet the record is still present in the Family
List, suggesting that the family may still have be living in Lithuania
in the year that the Family List was published.

Does anyone know how the Family List records handled the cases of
families that were not longer living in the home town, and how the
information in the Lists were kept up to date with events (such as the
birth of children) that had occurred after the family had left their
home town?

Thanks for any inputs to my questions.

Photographer GABRE Arpad- location? #general

Steven Ellner <stevenellner@...>
 

I have a family picture taken circa late 1800's, taken somewhere in Hungary
(the hungarian word for photographer is engraved on the reverse). The name
of the photographer is GABRE Arpad (also engraved).

Does anyone know what city or cities this photographer worked out of, and
time frame? I have other photographs >from this era, but all the others have
locations and dates engraved on them. The other photographs name Miskolc,
Iglo, Satoraljaujhely, Kassan (Kosice) so I expect that such area would be
the origin of this photo.

Thanks.

JRI Poland #Poland Lists of surviving jews in Poland] #poland

Nicole Berline <Nicole.Berline@...>
 

Lately, one of our members informed us of the extremely valuable work which his
team has been doing in computerizing lists of holocaust Surviving Jews. It lead
me to a major step in identifying ( too late, obviously) one member of my family
who had survived the Shoah.

On this occasion, I have realized that YIVO in New-York
holds some other lists, which have not been computerized so far.
The holdings are listed on a fact sheet of the Center for jewish History
available at

http://www.cjh.org/family/factsheets.cfm


As I live in Paris, I would be extremely thankful if someone could go to YIVO
and obtain a copy of one of these lists ( I would be glad to computerize it for
the benefit of all). The list is the following:

Jews in Poland, 1947 (surnames beginning with P, R, S, and Sz). Gives names,
parents' names, year of birth, residence
before the war, and address in 1947. YIVO Archives RG 116, Poland III, in box
with shipping label #295.

Thank you in advance

JRI Poland #Poland Holocaust Lists for Jews from Poland -- more information #poland

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

Last week, several people wrote to me off-list about my posting on the
collection at the American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati. In answer to a
few questions:

Here is a web site with further details on the collection:

http://www.americanjewisharchives.org/wjc/EAD-Front.htm

I took over 2000 digital images of the documents listed below. I am working
now to have them typed. I have taken my sample images of the documents off
the web. A few people were confused, thinking that perhaps the entire
collection is in digital form, and on the web. In fact, the collection is
in paper form--and is a wonderful resource for all of us!

Dan

P.S. Some especially interesting documents:

Very detailed lists of Polish survivors in Sweden, with indication of
relatives overseas (document D56n5).

Polish survivors (especially children) who were in Iran after the war
(document D56n9).

Telegrams sent to Jews in Poland during World War II (including "my" towns
of Radomsko and Czestochowa; documents H277n2).

Survivors at many different camps (document D56n1).

Witnesses contacted by the World Jewish Archives for potential testimony for
war crimes (document C203n6).

Survivor lists for many cities in Poland, including Czestochowa (document
D55n5).

Radio broadcasts within Poland, showing survivors trying to communicate with
family (document H277n2).

Polish survivors in the USSR after the war (document H277n7).
