CHURBN TELZ ON 101.9ChaiFM Sunday 12th July #southafrica

Eli Goldstein <eligold@...>
 

As you may be aware, many South African Jews stem >from the town of Telsiai
(Telz) in Lithuania and the shtetlach in the surrounding district. Telz was
home to one of the greatest Yeshivas in Lithuania and in 1941 was subject to
the tragedy of the Holocaust. The Yahrtzeit date was taken a 20 Days in
Tammuz which this year falls on Sunday 12th July.

To commemorate the 68th Yahrtzeit of the original Telz Yeshiva in Lithuania,
Eli Goldstein will be presenting an information-packed and very interesting
show and will be interviewing Rabbi Yosef Gavriel Bechhofer, a very
well-known Magid Shiur and Instructor at a number of prominent Yeshives in
America, including Ohr Sameach in Monsey New York, who has agreed to be
interviewed on the destruction of the Telz Yeshiva and the miracle of its
re-estabishment in Cleveland Ohio. Rabbi Bechhofer also authored the article
on the Telz Yehiva on LitvakSIG.

Also to be interviewed is Mr Ben Gonshor of the Segal Centre Montreal about
the recent International Yiddish Festival there, and the portion of the
Ghil'ad Zuckerman recording not broadcast last week will be played.

This is a show definitely not-to-be missed - tune in on this coming Sunday
afternoon at 4:30pm SA Time to the "Yiddish Thing - Life in the Shtetl" - on
101.9 Chai-FM.

International listeners can tune in via Audiostreaming on the Internet at
www.chaifm.com. Check www.timeanddate.com to find the equivalent time in your

New LitvakSIG Website Coming Soon #lithuania

DBH12345
 

LitvakSIG is proud to announce that we will be publishing a new version of
the LitvakSIG.org website in the coming days.

This website has been many, many months in the making, under the creative
leadership of Deena Berton, and we hope you will be as excited about it as
we are.

Some new features include:

- A more comprehensive shtetl list with a lot more linking to valuable
resources for your shtetls

- Detailed, organized information on LitvakSIG projects to make it easier
for you to understand and participate in LitvakSIG activities

- A larger image database

- Expanded database of reference information

- A new LitvakSIG News Blog

- A new look, feel, and simplified flow

- Updated information across the whole site, e.g. FAQs, information
on the Lithuanian Archives, topical organization of the Online Journal,
etc.

- Better search, font sizing options, and printable version options

A great deal of work has been done by Deena Berton (who also provided
major financial support) and the Website Committee over the past nine
months. But this is a framework, a beta version of the site, and we
will be correcting typos and hyperlinks and constantly enriching it as
well. Frankly it will always be a work in progress.

Stay tuned for our launch in the near future so you can see for yourself!

ROSENTHAL_-LEWIN #austria-czech

sararu70@...
 

Received some new information about our relative Salo ROSENTHAL who lived
in Berlin . >from the 1939 Berlin census for his address that we have on
his letter, , he was listed as being born in Laurenburg on February 4,
1867. We previously thought he was born in Ratibor or Bitschin, in Poland,
in February of 1879. Now we are not sure which is correct.
There is also a woman named Sara ROSENTHAL ,nee LEWIN, living at the same
address in Berlin, Linden Strasse 57. She was born in Skoki , Poland
on March 7 , 1876. Sara was deported to Theresien in 1942 and then to
Auschwitz in 1944. These are the same deportation dates we had for Salo
ROSENTHAL.

The record also shows a different Salo ROSENTHAl born in 1879 who was
deported to Theresien and Auschwitz, but his address was not Linden
Strasse 57.

The address we have as Linden Strasse 57 is on Salo's stationery at the
top of his letter. We are fairly sure this is our relative, but would like
to know if anyone has any information about Sara ROSENTHAL ,nee LEWIN.


Thank you

Feasibility of audio pronunciation guide for town names and common names #austria-czech

carolevogel1@...
 

Hi Fellow Researchers,

I don't know how to properly pronounce many of the names of the towns and
individuals that I have encountered during my research of Austria-Hungarian
records and I am not the only one with this problem. Is it feasible to set
up an audio pronunciation guide for the Hungarian SIG and Austria-Czech SIG?
Perhaps the town names could be displayed on an interactive map. When you
click on the name you could hear the correct pronunciation, preferably
recorded by a native speaker.

For first names and common surnames, you could go to a page that is divided
into regional dialects, say Burgenland or Lower Austria. Names could be
listed alphabetically and when you click on them you could hear them spoken
by a native speaker.

An audio pronunciation guide would be applicable to all regions served by
JewishGen.

I have absolutely no expertise in this area but if anybody needs to know how
native speakers pronounce the names of western Pennsylvania towns I'll be
glad to offer my services.

Best,

I am sorry to tell Mark that KRONBERGER is a relatively common Christian family name in Austria and
church records go back a long way! The LDS site mentions KRONBERGER bmd records back to the 1600s
in Upper Austria.

There are 688 KRONBERGER listed in the current Austrian telephone directory - 109 in Vienna, 17 in Linz
and a single one in Krems.

It is worth remembering that Jewish family names may have been chosen >from many sources including
names of Christian families [including titled families] living in the neighbourhood.

Austrailian Works by Dr. Mark Siegelberg #yiddish

pvan@...
 

Hello Genners,

I'm looking for information on the plays by Dr. Mark SIEGELBERG, that
were performed in Australia between 1942 and 1967, some possibly in both
German and English at varying times. I'd like to learn where and when
they were performed, and where I can find cast and crew credits.

The plays are: "Die Masken Fallen", which was also performed on ABC
(Australian) radio in 1942 as "Tickets to Shanghai"
"Fremde Erde" or "Alien Planet"
"Urlaub vom Jenseits" or "Holiday >from Beyond"
"Das Zweite Gesicht" or "The Second Face"
"The Face of Pearl Harbor"

Any leads or information would be greatly appreciated.
Best regards,

Heinrich Heine League #yiddish

pvan@...
 

Does anyone have information regarding the HEINRICH HEINE League,
especially in Australia during WWII? I gather that it drew a cross
section of anti-Nazi activists - its origins having possibly been in
Germany before the war, and continued by those exiled to other
countries. My primary question is, among their humanitarian activities,
did they also have a theatrical wing that performed for other immigrants?
Thanks, and best regards,
