Cemetery plots from defunct landsmanschaften #general

Jim Gutterman
 

Not sure about NJ,so maybe ask the cemetary,but in NY defunct
societies were "overseen" by NYS insurance dept liquidation
bureau. Would think "just" need to find out who in govt can get you
clearance, so to speak. although, if there are some people in the
plot, and the society was set up for residents of a town, whether your
status as a descendent qualifies to be buried there. I've seen similar
at Mt Zion in Queens, although far fewer empty plots that are being
"held"

After years of searching, I found my family in Moscow and Dnepopotrovsk. In the latter city there is a building carrying my family's name. it is a building that dates back to late 19th century. to this day the main russian bank has a branch in the building. In Moscow I have found that my grandfather and my relative's ggfather were brothers. thank you Jewish gen for making my search easy. However they are the ones who found me,

A resource for deciphering postmarks from the Baltic states #lithuania

Toby Bird
 

I came upon this interesting site. It's for stamp collectors, but it's
got interesting information - separate sections on Lithuania, Latvia
and Estonia. It reproduces, translates, and explains postal marks and
gives some history about border changes. It has good cyrillic to
English translations of place names, and small maps. It also has an
interesting section on beer cards - the names of companies and
examples of beer order forms which are translated.

If you're trying to decipher a postmark, this seems to be the place to
go: http://www.jkaptein.nl/index.html

The story can also be seen on the JewishGen Blog along with the song created

And, whilst you are visiting that story, you might like to see one featuring

Re: New Auschwitz list #hungary

SDAFAAO@...
 

I'm not sure, Tom, if you read the whole web site that you referred to as a
source of additional names of victims of Auschwitz. As I read the
information on the web site, I realized that it was created by holocaust deniers.
The author(s) of this web site maintain that claims made by Jews about
the selection process at Auschwitz are wrong and that it was not true that
children and older Jews who were unable to work were selected for immediate
death after their arrival at Auschwitz. The authors also contend that the
number of Jews that died in concentration camps is highly inflated and that
most died >from disease. They indicate that these are part of the holocaust
myth and was fabricated in order to generate money for Jews. This is a
direct quote >from the web site:

"The Red Cross (International Tracing Service) has never provided
statistics to the public, at large. This is because their number, totally
contradict the HolyCo$t (holocaust) myth"

As a daughter of survivors of Auschwitz who were eyewitnesses to the
atrocities committed there and of grandparents and other relatives that perished
in Auschwitz, I don't believe that sites like this have much to offer in
the way of trustworthy and accurate information.

Moderator: The questionable motivation of those who published this list has been
mentioned by others who came upon this website. In fact, much of the other information about those murdered in the
Shoah was generated by the murderers themselves. Regardless of the source, it is
always best to find other sources for confirmation. Please limit discussion on this

The Memoirs of Peter Kleinmann of Kustanovice/Munkacs #hungary

steve725@...
 

There has been a good addition to the Museum's ongoing and evolving
exhibition "Walk in my Shoes: Collected Memories of the Holocaust."

You can now read the complete memoirs of Holocaust survivor Peter (Dezider)
Kleinmann, who was born in 1925 in the small village of Kustanovice, about a
one hour walk >from the city of Mukacevo (aka Munkacs, Hungary; Mukacevo,
Czechoslovakia; Mukachevo, Soviet Union; today Mukacheve, Ukraine).

Peter writes about:

Jewish communal life in Munkacs
The rise of anti-Semitism during Hungarian occupation
The Munkacs ghetto
Deportation
Existence in the concentration camps Auschwitz, Gross-Rosen and Flossenburg
The Death March
Liberation

There are a good number of photos included, both of family, scenes around
towns, a sanitorium in Switzerland, and also of the camps.

You can begin to read his memoirs at
www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/wims-kleinmann-01.htm . More about Peter
Kleinmann, including video testimony, will be made available to you some
time this year once the Museum's "World War II and the Holocaust" section
has been augmented and made ready for viewing.

The submission of more such memoirs to the virtual Museum of Family History
are welcome.
