Does anyone know what happened to the Jewish community/graveyard in Zalata
(near the today border of Croatia), by my grandmothers' accounts her
grandfather Josef Lang was buried at the Jewish cemetery in Zalata, abt.
1922. I haven’t been able to find any information on the town or the
graveyard on the net or in the cemetery project posted on the net. LDS has
only church and civil records for the town, no synagogues and that only
until 1905.

Probably the town's name is GOMBOS, used to be in the Bacs-Bodrog
county, now is in Serbia and called BOGOJEVO.

WILCSEK/BASS, Leva and Budapest #hungary

Rebecca Fenning <macguffin317@...>
 

For a while I have been trying to figure out the married last name of my
grandfather's cousin, Ilona BASS. Then, a few weeks ago I realized that I
had a letter in my files >from her to my great-uncle AND she had written it
on a typewriter, so it was much easier for me to read and translate using an
web based translator (of course, its not a very finessed translation, but I
can get the main idea.)

Ilona BASS married Ludwig (Lajos) WILCSEK in about 1937-8. She was born in
Budapest ?to Hermann BASS and a BRIEGER (who was also a cousin of some kind
to the BASS family). Her mother died when she was about 4 or 5, and she
eventually went to live with Hermann's sister and brother in law, Hermine
and Sigmund NATZLER in Olomuetz, Cz. Ilona and Lajos moved to his hometown
of Leva in about 1938. She mentions his brother, Dr. Hugo WILCSEK living in
Alsopel and being a decorated soldier in WWI. Lajos and Hugo also had a
sister, who ran her own shop and had a teenage son who was, disappointingly
to the family, learning to be a mechanic. Lajos worked as a master
watchmaker or jeweler, and his parents owned some kind of textile shop or
factory.
A cousin recalled that they stopped getting word >from Ilona at some point,
and realized she must have been deported to a camp. Her father Hermann
lived in Budapest until the 30s and, according to Janos Bogardi's RadixRef,
is listed in "Pestzenterzsebet, Kispest es kornyeke," a 1936 history of
those Budapest suburbs which contains a personal directory at the back.

Anyway, I am looking for any information about the WILCSEK family >from Leva
or the BASS/BRIEGER families of Budapest (and Rybky, a small town near
Szenicz where Hermann and his siblings were born).

Thank you,
Rebecca Fenning
