JewishGen Discussion Group Membership--Automatic? #galicia

Carole Feinberg <feincgs@...>
 

Hello, Fellow Researchers,

We now understand why some members of an "old" mailing list are not on
the "new" list.

I am writing on behalf of the working committee of the Borislav,
Drogobych, Sambor & Vicinity Research Group (BDS&V, for short). While
many people have found us and have subscribed, some haven't, probably
thinking membership in the "new" group is automatic. It isn't, friends.

This "new" discussion group is housed by JewishGen, and you must send a
notice to JewishGen saying you'd like to join, if you wish to receive
email >from other subscribers to BDS&V.

Much information has already been shared by our resident map, geography
and history specialist, Alex Sharon. He listed virtually all the
shtetlach in our area, including the newly added shtetl, Dobromil, and
all the businesses found in the 1929 Polish Business Directory for our
area.

Another BDS&V member, David Priever, has volunteered to photograph and
record the data on tombstones in New York City landsmanschaft plots for
our area of interest.

Quite a lot has happened in a very short time. Since subscribing is
easy we invite all interested parties to do so. If you want to read
about our goals and how to subscribe, do the following:

Begin at www.jewishgen.org
Click on "Infofiles"
Scroll to "Countries", click on "Ukraine"
Finally, click on "Borislav, Drogobycy, Sambor & Vicinity"

We look forward to more researchers' participation.

Best wishes.

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania NEW GROUP: Ekaterinoslav Area #lithuania

Elsebeth Paikin
 

Forwarded to LITVAK SIG Discussion Group
---------------------------------------

I am very pleased to announce that yet another group geared to
facilitating communication between 'genners with a common interest
is now live and awaiting subscribers. With Elsebeth Paikin as
moderator, and myself (Jerry Touger) as coordinator, the Ekaterinoslav
Area Research Group is joining the long list of JewishGen hosted
mailing lists.

The Ekaterinoslav Area Research Group is dedicated to serving as an
information- gathering vehicle and clearinghouse for Jewish genealogical
as well as historical information relating to the Jewish community in
and around the city formerly known as Ekaterinoslav and now called
Dniepropetrovsk in the Ukraine. Because many Jews relocated to
Ekaterinoslav or the surrounding agricultutral colonies >from Belarus
(and many of these in turn subsequently emigrated), many of those people
already participating and also potential members will be particularly
interested in Belarus-Ekaterinoslav connections In fact, the effort to
establish this group was initiated specifically by people whose forebears
were originally >from Belarus, but later settled in Ekaterinoslav.

However there was also settlement in the area >from elsewhere in the Pale
of Settlement, and there are also people who know they have ancestors who
lived in Ekaterinoslav but do not know what prior roots those ancestors
might have had. Since these groups of ancestors no doubt intermingled
and intermarried, it makes good historical sense to embrace all of them
under the umbrella of the Ekaterinoslav area research group.

Joining this group is simple and can be done via e-mail or online.
To use the online automated webform, please go to:

where you will follow the directions to fill out completely, then

information about the address to be used when you post messages to
the entire list as well as the importance of setting your e-mail

Lithuania SIG #Lithuania Anti-establishment anti-Semitism' in Lithuania #lithuania

Dr Saul Issroff <saul@...>
 

Economic distress giving birth
to 'anti-establishment anti-Semitism'
in Lithuania

This is the subject of a copyrighted article in >from Ha'aretz based on an
interview with Lithuanian ambassador to Israel, Romas Misiunas, by
Catherine Cohen.

Because it is copyright, I can only refer briefly to this article. However, anyone who wants to read the entire article can do so by going to the Haaretz website <http://www.haaretzdaily.com/htmls/kat24_2.asp>

The thrust of the article is that economic and social distress in
Lithuania has allowed a far right party to win control ( last week) of the majority of the Baltic state's second largest city, Kaunas (Kovno).

According to Misiunas, Vytautas Sustauskas, the new mayor of Kaunas
(formerly Kovno), ran a campaign based on slogans like "Lithuania for
Lithuanians," and racist slurs against Jews, blacks and foreigners. "There aren't even 600 black people in Lithuania and only a few hundred Jews," said Misiunas in an interview with Anglo File. Misiunas has been in Israel for five years,and noted that the Freedom Union, the right wing party
headed by Sustauskas, is only a year old, and with a 20 percent
plurality won the majority in a crowded field.

His opinion is that the rise of the far right in Lithuania signals
dissatisfaction with the political establishment.

"Sustauskas basically has the same philosophies as Jean-Marie Le Pen in
France and Joerg Haider in Austria " says Misiunas. "But the situation
in Lithuania and other Eastern European nations differs >from countries
like Austria and France, which are more prosperous. In Lithuania, the
swing to the right was caused by economic and social problems. This was
a vote against the establishment."

The Lithuanian government is monitoring the growing extremism.

"The comments made by Sustauskas during the election campaign alerted
the government to extremism," said Misiunas. He added that the chairman
of the Lithuanian parliament, Vytautas Landsberg (a previous President), has since requested that the government examine the spread of extremism in the country.

Before the Second World War, approximately 160,000 Jews lived in
Lithuania, including 40,000 in the city of Kaunas. Some 85 percent of
the population was killed in the war, and most of the survivors settled in Israel. "Today, there are between 5,000 to 10,000 Jews in Lithuania. Nobody is sure how many there are because they are mostly elderly and non-religious," said Misiunas.

(Note >from submitter of this summary, these figures refer to interwar independent Lithuania, and thus exclude the 80,000 or more Jews in Vilna and the rest of Polish Lithuania. Estimates by Yitzchak Arad and others give a figure of between 220,00-250,000 Jews killed, possibly 95% of the Jewishpopulation if the contemporary boundaries of Lithuania are considered).

The ambassador will be visiting Yad Vashem on Holocaust Remembrance Day.
"I did not receive special instructions >from the government to go to Yad
Vashem. It is just taken for granted that I will go," he said.

The Latvian State Archives was able to send me detailed information on
my grandmother's SPIVAK family in Riga. However, it seems that the family
originally came >from New Zagare, Lithuania.

Instead of going to the archives in Lithuania I tried the All Lithuania
Data Base and WOW there they all were, all listed in the May 1858

Much of the information I had previously obtained by "word-of-mouth" is
now changed. Now I have the rest of the story. Thanks to all the
