This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

"With the death of millions of Polish Jews, a vast treasure of Jewish
folklore, the product of generations of creativity, was lost as well."
This week's Yizkor book excerpt (>from Chrzanow, Poland) is an attempt
to preserve them ... "to save this tiny remnant >from oblivion." In the
past, I've posted several chapters full "sayings" that usually, with
dark humor, captured the flavor of Jewish life and reflected some of
its hardships. But this collection >from "Folklore" is richer, with
more detail. Rather than just brief sayings, each item - even if only
a tale - provides its own window on Jewish life, often wryly told. One
of my favorites was about a young man trying to get out of military
service during World War I by convincing the doctor he was crazy. When
he was certified as insane, someone asked him how he had done it, and
he answered: "You have to be a little bit crazy to begin with and for
the rest, you rely on God."

Jews released from Dachau in 1939 - how they got to Britain #general

Jim Fraser
 

Hi

I am wondering if anyone has information about the process that happened once
Jews were released >from Dachau. My father in law was one of the 'November Jews'
that got released in early 1939 once his sister had got the necessary paperwork
to get him entry to Britain. To date I haven't found any details of what
happened once Jews were released. Were they just able to get on a train and
make their way to a port eg Calais and then cross into Britain? Did the British
accept the paperwork and allow them in? Did they need a passport?

Any information or links to any on line resources would be appreciated

Thanks

Polish National Digital Archives - help with a word #galicia

Renee Steinig
 

Inspired by Phyllis Kramer's recent comments about the Polish National
Digital Archives (https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/), I took a look on the
NDA for my REIFER family >from Lezajsk and Jaroslaw. One item that
came up refers to Breindla Reifer, who may have been the second wife
of my great-grandfather Hersch Ber Reifer. The file is called "Spadek
po Breindli Reifer 1901-1901." According to GoogleTranslate, meanings
of "spadek" include fall, descent, drop, dip, decrease, etc. Does
anyone have any idea of what it means in this context?

I also found an interesting description of my grand-uncle Joachim
Reifer's silk ribbon factory in Jaroslaw. Thanks Phyllis!

Russian names #lithuania

Herbert Lazerow
 

On certain records for an ancestor it says Gessel or Hessel
(sometimes with only one 's'). But then we encountered records
that say Kushel. Could these three options be the same name/person?>
I think that Gesel and Hesel are the same name. There is no letter H
in the Russian alphabet. Things spelled with H are normally rendered as
G in Russian.
I would have thought that Kushel would be the same name also
because it sounds alike, but Alexander Beider in his A Dictionary of
Ashkenazic Given Names (2001) says that my untutored intuition may be
incorrect.
He says that Kushel is a variant on Ikusiel, while Hesel could be a
variant on Hese, a name borrowed >from Christians in the Rhineland, or
Yoshue (Joshua). At the end of his entry for Hese, he then says that
Hese and its derivatives might by a Christian-sounding derivative for
a Jewish-sounding name like Ikheskl.
My read of all this learning is that those three names probably
belong to the same person, but there is a shade of doubt about it.

Searching for Simon Rosenpik #france

gregory.celerse@...
 

Hi guys,

I have been working for years on the largest rescue of Jews >from a
train to Auschwitz. This story happenned on September 11, 1942 in my
hometown of Lille (Nord, France). 23 members of the SNCF decided to
hide and evacuate 39 people I identified as being rescued that day.
Eventually 513 Jews >from Northern France were sent to Auschwitz via
Malines (Belgium). 18 survived....

According to Serge Klarsfeld - famous French lawyer and hidden child
himself - this event is the largest in a French train station. For the
USHMM in Washington D.C. it is one if not the largest evacuation of a
train to Auschwitz in Europe.

I am still looking for rescued people - I found one in Long Island, NY
last Sunday. She is 91 years old but still remembers the man who saved
her life - and I have a couple of names of potentially rescued.

One of them is called Simon Rosepik. He was 8 when he was arrested on
September 11, 1942 (must have been born in 1933 or 1934). His mom and
sister stayed on the train and were both murdered in Auschwitz. His
father was arrested in 1943 and eventually died in Auschwitz too.

I have been told that he moved to the US but cannot find him. Any tips
or help would be great.

Thank you very much,

if you wanna know a bit more, I was interviewed after I organized a
ceremony with the city of Lille by the Times of Israel back in 2016 :

ViewMate translation request - Polish from Tomaszow Lubelski - PUTER and FAYNER #poland

Sonny Putter <sonny_putter@...>
 

I would appreciate an English translation of the Polish text of the 1847
Tomaszow Lubelski, Poland death record of Rywka PUTER, Akta 177. I would
like a translation of all the genealogically significant information,
especially her place of birth and the actual date and place of death. Does
the record also confirm that the witnesses, Michel PUTER and Peysach PUTER,
are her sons?

It is on ViewMate at the following address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM72510.

Please respond using the online ViewMate form.
Thank you very much.
