Re: Names on headstones #general

There are cases I know of where names of children were listed on the
tombstone of a parent if the children had no other tombstone. For example, a
child may have been killed during the Holocaust and there is no grave, or if
the death was during an epidemic and burial was in a mass grave, or if the
death was during an exodus of refugees where burial was at the side of a
road with no permanent marker. This way the family had a permanent memorial
for the departed.

Trials in post-war Germany: US Army lawyers #general

Ann Linder
 

I'm researching a post-war murder trial, circa 1949, in Marburg
Germany wherein I think an attorney for the prosecution was a member
of the US Army. The trial may have been held in Nuremburg but was not
related to the Holocaust atrocities trials held there. This was a
murder perpetrated in Marburg by "former" nazis.I've inquired of Yad
Vashem, USHMM, NARA, and I recently submitted an ITS Bad Arolsen
inquiry.

Might anyone know of relevant research on post-war civilian murder
trials in Nuremberg that the US Army was involved in that I might
consult? I've read a couple of books I found in the library but they
were not helpful How can I research this topic further? Do I need to
go to Army achives & if so how do I approach that?

Vienna property records #galicia

Tony Hausner
 

I recently learned that the U.S. Holocaust Museum has a
publication that lists all property owners in Vienna around 1939.
Here is more info on that.

The Viennese expropriation records at the Austrian State Archives.

This provided property listings for several members of my family.
I then emailed a request to Austrian State Archives for the records
and received them via mail in less than a month. I share this in
case some of you don't know this.

Does anyone know if these properties were covered by some of the
Austrian restitution processes.

Polish Institute for National Remembrance[IPN] (GRYNBAUM/LENCZNER, Sosnowiec) #general

Michael McTeer
 

Has anyone had experience in contacting or obtaining information >from this
organization?

I found a reference on their website to my great grandmother's sister, Golda
(LENCZNER) GRYNBAUM/GRINBAUM via a Google search taking me directly to the
page. >from a previous ITS requests, I learned that Golda died in Aug 1943,
Sosnowiec, circumstances not given. Her death certificate was generated in
1950 apparently through some court action in Sosnowiec.

The IPN listing appears to be reference to the court action. I obtained some
info >from the google translation option, but am not certain what it means or
if correct. The submitter/applicant is Josek Cyn GRINBAUM. Believe this is
Golda's son, who survived the war and changed his name to Charles/Joseph
PIROG and may have died in France in the 1990's. The listing provides some
information that I did not have previously about Golda's husband, Izrael
David GRYNBAUM. It gives his birth info as 13 XII 1880 (13 Dec 1880),
Bedzin. And it lists his parents as Joska and "Sury Geli" nee: FOGEL. It
incorrectly gives Golda's mother name as "Goldy" (s/b Gitel). The ITS search
for Izrael was negative, but is the claim of the listing that Izrael and
Golda died on the same day/location (15 Aug 1943, Sosnowiec)?

Obviously if not actually obtaining a copy of the document(s), I would like
to learn what information is available (circumstances of death, is Golda's
daughter, Brucha mentioned, etc.) I have emailed the site and am awaiting a
response.

Thanks,
