ViewMate translation request German #poland

eran shayshon <eshayshon@...>
 

hi there,

I've posted 2 post cards (4 photos) in German for which I need
a translation. These are postcards that were sent to my grandmother
when she was prisoned in Gabersdorf (Sudetten Deutch), by her mother
and brother. I would like to ask anyone who can help summarize this
postcard. A complete translation is not required, but the essence -
what is generally told in the post card, who else is mentioned in
the postcard and in what context.

They are on ViewMate at the following address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM42566

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM42567

Please respond via the form provided in the Viewate application

Thank you very much.

Enquiry about the fate of Frieda SCHMIDT, born Frieda STERNBERG #poland

Alexander Watson <a.watson.genas@...>
 

Dear All,

This is an enquiry about Frieda SCHMIDT, born Frieda STERNBERG in
Polgsen, Kreis Wohlau, north of Breslau on 11th August, 1883: a
pre-WW2 resident of Breslau.

I have some letters dating >from during and just after the Second World
War written by my great-grandfather Georg STERNBERG.
One letter, sent by my great-grandfather in Breslau to my grandmother,
in Britain on 25th November 1940 (sent via the Red Cross ?), states
that Frieda had been sent to an institution for the mentally infirm in
Lueben.

Another, post-war letter, by my great-grand father >from Fueth on 9th
December 1946 to his best friend, Felix PERITZ, in Israel, appears to
hint that Frieda SCHMIDT was murdered by lethal injection in an
institution for the mentally infirm in Chelm, despite the fact that
the official explanation was "Herzschwaeche".

I have been in touch with the archives on Wroclaw (for Lueben) and
Lublin (for Chelm), neither were able to help me.
Frieda does not appear as a victim of Nazi persecution in the
Bundesarchiv-Gendenkbuch.

I have a great-great uncle, Hans FABIAN of Hamburg who was murdered
under the terms of the T4 Aktion. It was suggested to me that all
death certificates for these, so called, mercy killings were issued in
Chelm, so the date, place and circumstances of Frieda's death are,
as yet, very unclear.

Any suggestions as to where to go >from here to gain a clearer idea of
the circumstances surrounding the death of my great-great aunt would
be gratefully received.

I have also written to the archives of Lezsno and Wroclaw to try to
obtain, among others, Frieda's birth certificate : both of these
places say that Polgsen, Kreis Wohlau, is not in their catchment area.
I have written to the central archives in Warsaw asking them where I
might find the documents that I am looking for; they have simply not
replied. Any help on this would also be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

Emigration from Bessarabia to Canada and the U.S. #bessarabia

Alan Levitt
 

There have been some requests for the entire article by Janet Wasserman mentioned
recently on our listserv. Much of it is now on the Bessarabia SIG website which can be accessed at
www.jewishgen/bessarabia Go to "Emigration >from Bessarabia" to find it.

For those who want to read the entire, very, very long article, you
can access it at

http://www.janetwasserman.com/from-shtetl-to-park-avenue-inewton-kugelmass-md-1896-1979.html

But a warning: There was some corruption in the software coding of
the program that Janet used years ago to post her article - so that
the article is spread over many more pages than necessary. Sometimes
there can be a jump >from the middle of a sentence to several lines
down the page. And even splits of words, where the first letter is on
one line, and it jumps to the next line with the remaining letters of
the word. It is all there, it just makes for sometimes aggravating
reading (but worth it in my opinion!) Janet is working on fixing
it.

Locating Palotza #hungary

albie.hochhauser@...
 

My great grandfather and great grandmother emigrated >from Europe to
the US in 1882/3. On the ships' registries their home is listed as
"Palotza, Russland" and "Polocza, Russland", respectively.
Can anyone help me identify the current name and location of this
town, as well as the correct spelling used in the JewishGen
Communities Database?
Options I have found include Palota and Pavlovce nad Uhom, both in
current day Slovakia. Slovakia makes sense because in the all-citizen
Hungary census of 1869, they are found in Berzevicze.
Albert M. Hochhauser

Moderator: The Jewish Communities database has information for only
about 6,000 places compared with the JewishGen Gazetteer
http://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/LocTown.aspwhich includes close
to a million places.
