Hi Henry,

I recommend you to scan everything with a good resolution and make several backup copies of it (prefer external disks to DVD or CD that are not reliable supports).
Then you can put your paper documents in plastic sleeves and class them in binders.
You'll find a good FAQ about it at http://loricase.com/faq.html

Dear Genners,

I am looking for a way to store old Documents (Personal letters, Birth &
Marriage Records) as well as old pictures that survived the war.


Any suggestions?

LEIMDORFER #austria-czech

oliverbryk@...
 

I would like to thank everyone who contributed to answering my recent
inquiry regarding Rosa LEIMDORFER (o umlaut). She was the wife of Hugo
LEIMDORFER, the son of Moritz L. and Ernestine SCHICK; their daughter was
Elsa LEIMDORFER.

An Elsa LEIMDORFER was listed by Yad Vashem as having perished in 1944 in
Theresienstadt; another Elsa LEIMDORFER was listed by the IKG as having been
buried in Vienna in 1927.

Your responses made it possible to identify the Elsa L. who perished in 1944
as a daughter of Obermedizinalrat Dr. Leopold LEIMDORFER (o umlaut)
(1852-1932) >from Hohenau in Lower Austria where he also served as the head
of the Jewish Community ("Hohenau an der March" is near where the borders of
Austria, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic meet), and the Elsa L. who died in
1927 as the sister of Hugo LEIMDORFER.

Dr. Leopold LEIMDORFER's children were Elsa (1880-1944), Alfred (1885-1956),
and Adele (1887-?). His wife was Rosa KOHN (1857-1892).

Elsa, her husband Siegfried FABIAN (1857-1944), and their daughter Rosa
(1908-1944) perished in Theresienstadt. Their sons Fritz (1911-?) and Karl
FABIAN (1918-?) went to England.

Dr. med. Alfred LEIMDORFER, his wife Marianne JELLINEK (1884-1990), and
their daughter Fritzi(e) Edith (1931-?) emigrated to the United States.

Adele LEIMDORFER married Max FRANKFURTER in Vienna in 1913. I have no other
information about them.

It would be interesting to know Dr. Leopold LEIMDORFER's ancestry.

With sincere thanks,

Oliver BRYK, San Francisco, oliverbryk@comcast.net


Left and returned to Judaism #austria-czech

Robert Fraser
 

Hi all - Due to a computer/internet glitch, I could not
thank responders until today. Thanks to all who voiced their
opinions.

It's a case of 'I'm right, you're right, you're both right!'

In fact , most of the 'changes' appear to have occurred
early in the twentieth century. So they have no connection
with the Nuremberg laws or probably with getting out of
paying the IKG dues. I guess it had more to do with marriage
(converting to Judaism), which is certainly true in at least
one case. Or leaving Judaism, just to assimilate. Lots did.
Gustav Mahler is a case in point.

The person may have left the formal Jewish religious
organization (IKG) to stop paying the required taxes and
rejoined when desired/needed. Apparently many people left
the official Jewish state organization in the 1920's and
1930's and then rejoined in hopes of expediting paperwork
when trying to leave Austria in 1938-1939.

Acting in Terezin #austria-czech

Helen Epstein
 

I've just translated a most unusual excerpt >from a Czech memoir by
professional actress Vlasta (Vava) Schoenova and put it up on Kindle as
part of the Plunkett Lake Press series of books by Czech Jews.

Vava began her theater career as a teenager before the Nazi occupation
of Czechoslovakia. After her deportation to Terezin (Theresienstadt),
she performed, directed and wrote plays as a prisoner. Theater, she
writes, invested her life with meaning and kept her alive, even in the
most deadly circumstances. Based on Vava's notebook, Acting in Terezin
features seven extraordinary theater posters >from the Terezin Memorial
collection.

You can download this eBook to any computer, smartphone, tablet or
eReader >from Kindle (amazon.com/dp/B0050W9IFQ).

Strzelisk, Tuczne, etc. #galicia

Blanche Deutsch <MrsD203@...>
 

I am trying to locate any information about the towns in Galicia
that were known as Strzeliska Stare, Strzeliska Nowe, Tuczne,
Wojciechowice (in the district of Peremyslany), Pryben, and
Swirz. Any information (photographs, location of records,
history, family names, Holocaust information, etc.) would be
welcome. The towns, of course, still exist and are part of the
Ukraine. It is my understanding that the locals today claim
that there were only two Jewish families who ever lived in
Strzeliska Stare in particular. Funny -- the cemeteries in New
York in which my family members are buried, in the Strzelisk
society, certainly have far more than members of two families.
Any help you can give would be most sincerely appreciated.

Thank you.
