Re: Required proving of non-Jewish ancestry in Nazi Europe? #germany

Hi Diana,

When we visited non Jewish relatives in Germany several years ago they
showed us a document >from the Hitler era to show they did not have jewish
ancestry. They had to research and prove their Aryan ancestry back to
the 18th century. The document was approved by the state. I don't know
what other countries where this was required but I was shocked when
I saw it. So Yes, this was true.

If true, which countries were affected?

[Required] proving [of non-Jewish] ancestry in Nazi Europe? #germany

Diana da Costa
 

I have heard it stated that in some countries overrun by the Nazis,
local populations were required to prove their lack of Jewish ancestry by
producing their own family trees. Is this just a myth or is it true? If
true, which countries were affected? Regarding Germany, I don't think this
was the case but perhaps it might have been in some areas?

All ideas welcome on this issue!

Birth Records - Zurich #germany

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

Dear Group Members,
I am researching a family that lived in Vienna. While looking at
records, I noticed that two of the children were born in Zurich, and
I'm now seeking their birth records.

I'd appreciate your advice on availability/whereabouts of such Swiss
records on Jewish birth in Zurich, early 1900's.

Specifically, I'm interested in
Karl WOLFTHAL, born January 31 1907, Zurich
Julius WOLFTHAL, born April 21 1914, Zurich

Thank you, Yaron Wolfsthal, Beer Sheva, Israel yaron.wolfsthal@gmail.com

gebhardsdorf to georgenthal #poland

arnold friedman
 

hi,

tracing my mothers holocaust history and would appreciate any advice
where i might find the following information

1. jews on train transports during summer 1944 >from auschwitz to
gebhardsdorf (giebultow, poland)
2. a list of jews at gebhardsdorf camp sometime between summer 1944
and jan 1945
3. list of jews at georgenthal, czechoslovakia after January 1945
(assume this is sankt georgenthal in Jietn pod Jedlovou, Czechia)
4. when did Russians liberate georgenthal camp.
5. any information on what work jews did at gebhardsdorf and
georgenthal camps. also living conditions and other information that
might be available.

my mother was in radom poland work camps, then ostrowiec, auschwitz,
gebhardsdorf, georgenthal there is a confusion in her testimony on
the order of the last two camps. She was in a death march in winter
1945 for 3 days, and that fits 18 jan 1945 westward death march from
gebhardsdorf. She was liberated >from the Russians in may 1945

Hope to details to fully document my mothers history. She also was in
work camps in radom, poland prior to ostrowiec. My next hope is to
find details there.

Her name was Sura Frydman but went by Sala Frydman.

I have searched much online, but hopefully there is a specific
resource that someone knows regarding the above items. appreciate
the advice and guidance.

regards,

arnold friedman

Hiding in the 1940 census #general

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

I need help locating Mary Mannlein ROTHSCHILD in the 1940 census.

Widowed and too ill to work, she lived in the Home for Aged and Infirm Hebrews
in Manhattan.

Born 1878, in Bavaria, she died in 1942. Her death cert indicates the home was
at 121 West 105th Street.

I've searched:
both FS and A,
both Manhattan and Bronx,
using wild cards,
under both maiden and married name
using Steve Morse's ED finder (31-983) Maybe I'm not using it correctly?

The FindAGrave entry was made by me.

**Help!**
