Dear Professor Schorsch

For those interested in post-Holocaust issues, dealing with DP camps and
survivors in Austria and Germany:
I want to share this exciting information with you, posted at
www.Courageofspirit.com


UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM RELEASES DIGITIZED ONLINE COPIES OF
DOCUMENTS  OF RABBI DR. WILHELM WEINBERG: SHEDS LIGHT ON THE RECONSTRUCTION
OF JEWISH COMMUNITIES IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE HOLOCAUST

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has digitized the archival
documents of Rabbi Wilhelm Weinberg, the first post-Holocaust Chief Rabbi of
Hesse and Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
 This is a treasure trove for historians researching how individual Jews and
entire Jewish communities reconstructed themselves in the aftermath of the
Holocaust in the heart of post-Hitler Germany.  The collection covers
personal writings and published essays relevant to philosophical, ethical,
and moral issues of the period as well as records documenting the
reorganization of the surviving Austrian and German Jewish community after
the war.

Thanks to the work of Brad Bauer, Chief Archivist, and the staff at the
Museum, these documents were painstakingly scanned and digitized and can now
be accessed online at http://collections.ushmm.org/search/catalog/irn502232
.

A sampling of topics include:

A Jewish People?s University in the refugee camps near Salzburg , Austria;
the fight against anti-Semitism and Nazis in post-War Germany; the
renovation and dedication of the main synagogue in Frankfurt am Main;
gaining freedom for Jewish convicts held in US custody ; relations with John
J. McCloy, United States High Commissioner and the new German government,
both on a local and national level; unification of community of German
Jewish survivors with the communities of East European survivors that had
flooded Germany.

Letters include correspondence with Rabbi Leo Baeck, and philosophers
Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer, as well as officials of the Hesse State
government, Justice and Interior Ministries of West Germany, the various
Jewish regional councils, Office of the Adviser on Jewish Affairs to the
Allied Forces, the Jewish Agency and others.

Essays, lectures, sermons, newspaper articles and other writings of Rabbi
Wilhelm Weinberg that cover such topics as events affecting the Jewish
communities of Central Europe >from the years before the Nazi rise to power
to the post-war reconstruction of Jewish communities in Austria and Germany,
comments on general issues of philosophy, ethics, morality, politics,
religion in general and Judaism in particular as well as thoughts on Zionism
and the challenges experienced in everyday life.

Legal papers and correspondences relating to the status of known Nazis in
high positions, Jewish prisoners, protection of Jewish cemeteries, and other
themes

ShareFair at the IAJGS 2016 conference #austria-czech

Janette Silverman <cochairs@...>
 

Have you made your plans to join us in Seattle August 7-12, 2016?

The International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies will once
again start its annual International Conference on Jewish Genealogy with
a Share Fair. This event allows non-profit organizations involved in or
supporting Jewish genealogy to tell conference registrants about
themselves and answer questions >from these registrants. Each
organization has its own booth. This summer's Share Fair will be from
1:30 to 5:00 pm on August 7, the first day of the conference. More than
30 organizations will participate.

"The Share Fair is traditionally the high point of opening day," notes
Nolan Altman, the Fair's coordinator. "It offers Jewish genealogical
societies, historical societies, archives, and libraries an opportunity
to show and tell what they do." Jewish genealogical SIGs (Special
Interest Groups) including JRI-Poland, Gesher Galicia and BOFs (Birds Of
A Feather) will have tables staffed with experts to answer questions,
register new members, and distribute informational literature.

The Seattle conference, which runs >from August 7 to 12, is expected to
draw upwards of 1,000 family researchers and genealogical experts from
around the world. Presentations, panel discussions, and info sessions
will take in the full global sweep of the Jewish history, including the
Sephardic experience, European migrations, and Jews in the Western U.S.

Additional information about the conference can be found at
http://www.iajgs2016.org.

JewishGen's Success! Stories for Feb, 2016 #austria-czech

Phyllis Kramer
 

We present three outstanding stories in the latest issue of
JewishGen's Success! Stories. You can access these accounts >from the
"About Us" button on our website or by following this link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Testimonials/

Angela Strohschein never stopped wondering about her great-grandmother
Frieda who had tragically died at the age of 28. Through census
records, passenger manifests, vital records, and clues found in the
JewishGen Online Worldwide Burial Registry (JOWBR), Angela learns
about Frieda's family history and connects with newly found family
members.

Marla Raucher Osborn received an intriguing request >from the Director
of the Lviv National Gallery of Art to discover the background and
history of Dr. Michal Chajes, whose name is stamped on the back of a
Bruno Schulz drawing. In researching this Jewish lawyer and his family
from Drohobycz, the Schulz drawing also serves to re-join two
surviving Chajes family branches separated 70 year ago, today living
in different hemispheres.

Morton Rappaport wanted to know how eight members of his Goldstein and
Gluck families gained entry into Canada in the 1930s -- after Canada had
instituted a law which banned the immigration of Asians, Jews, and any
other group deemed undesirable by Canadian authorities. After 1930,
the only way an immigrant could gain entry to Canada was through a law
issued by Parliament called an "Order-In-Council." After 20 years of
searching, Morton finds these life-saving documents.

This issue was prepared by JewishGen volunteers -- Nancy Siegel,
Editor and Anna Blanchard, Webmaster. We hope you will be inspired by
these stories and we encourage you to submit your own success stories
to us at success@... .

Searching for surviving family #austria-czech

Veronica Zundel
 

Hi

I'm looking for descendants of Etie Horoschowska and her husband Benzion
Weber, who fled in late 1914 or early to Vienna >from Drohobych in Poland
(now in Ukraine), or of their surviving children Chaje Sara (b 1910),
Motel (b 1912) and Matylda (b1913) (their first child Hersch, b 1906,
died in infancy). They were my birth grandparents: my late mother Genja
(Jenny), b Vienna 1915, was their fifth child, fostered >from birth and
later adopted. When she was 12 in 1927, her birth brother Motel came to
tell her he was trying to get to Israel with one sister. He wasn't
allowed to see my mother and we don't know if he got to Israel, but if
he did, any descendants there would be my first cousins. I have found
her birth family on JRI-Poland but have no idea how to follow it
forward.

Any help or advice would be appreciated

Re: Wedding to MAGYARFALVA (HU), probably now "HARKA" (HU) #hungary

Elisabeth,

Magyarfalva is now called "Harka" (called Magyarfalva between 1947-1990) and
it is right near the Austrian border.

Its registers are available online on the family search website for the
period October 1, 1895-1911. (Hungary, Civil Registers, Sopron county,
Harka)

And just as an addition to my earlier message.
There were at least four (!) other localities by this name.

Three of them are now in Slovakia
- Magyarfalu (Uhorska Ves) (Jewish records: Liptoszentmiklos/Liptovsky
Mikulas)
- Magyarfalu (Uherskaves, now: Záhorska Ves), Jewish records:
MAlacka/Malacky)
- Uhorszka/Magyarfalu (later Ipolymagyari), now: Uhorské), Jewish registers:
Losonc/Lucenec

According to my grandmother, Esther Smith's SS-5 card, she was born on
Feb 1, 1888 in Nemesbikk, Hungary and her parents were Samuel Lustberg
and Lena Rosenberg. I have found the birthrecords of two sons born to a

Lusztberg b. 19 NOV 1885 in Nemesbikk and Ignacz Rosenberg (Lusztberg)
b. July 3, 1892 in Nemesbikk. Possibly Esther's brothers?
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/jgdetail_2.php I don't find Esther
Lusztberg's birth records. Does anyone know, whether or not, if all the

there more to come? Thank you!
