DREIKE - Dortmund and Unna #germany

Mike Redel <redel.mike@...>
 

Dear gersigs,

I hope one of you can help me with this:

The newest Stolpersteine in Unna are for Franz, Wilhelmine, Herta,
Guenter and Margot DREIKE.

Franz was Born 24.09.1879 in Dortmund, Wilhelmine (no maiden Name)
30.04.1885 in Dortmund, Margot 26.09.1922 in Unna and 19.09.1924 in
Unna.

Franz is non Jewish, Wilhelmine is half Jewish. What's happend with
Hertha? There is no entree for her in the 1939 census. They were not murdered
- when did they died, where could I find them? What is the maiden Name
of Wilhelmine DREIKE?

I am not sure, but I think there are different DREIKE families in
Dortmund. I have found a Franz Josef DREIKE who was Born 1910 in Dortmund.
Thanks for any help, Regards,

Mike Redel, Unna - Germany redel.mike@...

Yizkor Book Project, February 2019 #unitedkingdom

Shalom,

There seems to be some unwritten law that despite its shortness,
February always seems to be one of the busiest times in the Yizkor
Book Project and this last one didn't disappoint.

To begin with, I am more than very pleased to let you know that we
have just completely translated and placed online, another Yizkor
book. This time it is the "Czyzewo Memorial Book" covering the
Czyzew-Osada, Poland community and considering that it entails 1190
columns of text (around 585 pages), this is definitely no mean feat.
Our grateful thanks go out Jennifer Mohr who, >from the outset, has
coordinated the translation of this book with great energy and
dedication. Although the book is now completely translated, Jen is
now arranging for an index to be prepared for the book which is always
an invaluable additional tool that researchers can be good use of.

Continuing on with the good news, I am pleased to let you know that
the 80th book published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project has
recently hit the shelves. The book, "The Jews of Kishinev" covering
the lost Jewish community of Chisinau, Moldova has become a reality
through the enthusiastic coordination of Yefim Kogan and the wonderful
translations of volunteer, Sheli Fain, and of course, the YBIP team
led by Joel Alpert. Our grateful thanks goes out to all those involved
in the translation and publication of this book and for those
interested in learning more about the other 79 books that have been
published, please see the link to the YBIP project at the end of this
report.

Other good news. The New York Public Library has done wonders over
the years to allow us ready online access to an enormous number of
Yizkor books. It has now gone an extra step further and provided the
public with a very useful guide for viewing the online books and also
has provided useful links to other online sites, including our very
own Yizkor Book Project. In my humble opinion, a worthwhile site to
bookmark: https://libguides.nypl.org/yizkorbooks

As Purim is just around the corner, I would like to wish you dear

Yizkor Book translation for Khotin, Ukraine #general

Judi Wagner
 

We are spearheading the translation project for the city of Khotin,
Ukraine, the home of our grandfather, Charles (Kalman) WEINSTEIN.

Please consider donating to this project to bring the words of the
Khotin community to our children and grandchildren. This book was
originally written in Yiddish and Hebrew, is over 300 pages, and will
be translated into English.

A page has been set up on JewishGen in the Yizkor Book Translation
section for Khotin. On the website main page, the donate button is in
the upper right, and also on the right is the Active JewishGen Projects,
the last one on the list is Yizkor Book Translations, and scroll down
until you find Khotin.

Khotin is a city in Chernivtsi Oblast of western Ukraine. It is
south-west of Kamianets-Podilskyi. Khotin is first chronicled in 1001,
and is located on the right (southwestern) bank of the Dniester River,
and is part of the historical region of Bessarabia. An important
architectural landmark within the city is the Khotin Fortress,
constructed in he 13-15th centuries. During some of its history, the
city was part of the principality of Moldavia. Jewish merchants
traveling >from Constantinople to Lvov in the 15th and 16th centuries
used to pass through Khotin, then an important customs station on the
Polish-Moldavian border on the commercial route between Turkey and
Poland. Jewish merchants >from Poland used to visit Khotin for the
fairs held there, evidence which dates >from 1541. The residence of
Jews in Khotin is first mentioned in documents in 1741. There were
340 Jewish families in 1808. After this time the community grew as a
result of the large Jewish immigration into the region. In 1897 the
community totaled 9227 which was over 50% of the population. A Jewish
government school was established in 1847, and a private school for
girls was opened in 1857. In the first half of the 19th century,
Isaiah Schorr, one of the most important rabbis in Bessarabia,
officiated in Khotin. Later, Grand Rabbi Israel Twersky served the
community of Khotin.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2019 #sephardic

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

There seems to be some unwritten law that despite its shortness,
February always seems to be one of the busiest times in the Yizkor
Book Project and this last one, didn't disappoint.

To begin with, I am more than very pleased to let you know that we
have just completely translated and placed online, another Yizkor
book. This time it is the "Czyzewo Memorial Book" covering the
Czyzew-Osada, Poland community and considering that it entails 1190
columns of text (around 585 pages), this is definitely no mean feat.
Our grateful thanks go out Jennifer Mohr who, >from the outset, has
coordinated the translation of this book with great energy and
dedication. Although the book is now completely translated, Jen is
now arranging for an index to be prepared for the book which is always
an invaluable additional tool that researchers can be good use of.

Continuing on with the good news, I am pleased to let you know that
the 80th book published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project has
recently hit the shelves. The book, "The Jews of Kishinev" covering
the lost Jewish community of Chisinau, Moldova has become a reality
through the enthusiastic coordination of Yefim Kogan and the wonderful
translations of volunteer, Sheli Fain, and of course, the YBIP team
led by Joel Alpert. Our grateful thanks goes out to all those involved
in the translation and publication of this book and for those
interested in learning more about the other 79 books that have been
published, please see the link to the YBIP project at the end of this
report.

Other good news. The New York Public Library has done wonders over
the years to allow us ready online access to an enormous number of
Yizkor books. It has now gone an extra step further and provided the
public with a very useful guide for viewing the online books and also
has provided useful links to other online sites, including our very
own Yizkor Book Project. In my humble opinion, a worthwhile site to
bookmark: https://libguides.nypl.org/yizkorbooks

As Purim is just around the corner, I would like to wish you dear
readers and your families, a very enjoyable time over this upbeat
holiday and wish you a Happy Purim and/or a Purim Sameach.

Yizkor Book Project, February 2019 #latvia

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

There seems to be some unwritten law that despite its shortness,
February always seems to be one of the busiest times in the Yizkor
Book Project and this last one, didn't disappoint.

To begin with, I am more than very pleased to let you know that we
have just completely translated and placed online, another Yizkor
book. This time it is the "Czyzewo Memorial Book" covering the
Czyzew-Osada, Poland community and considering that it entails 1190
columns of text (around 585 pages), this is definitely no mean feat.
Our grateful thanks go out Jennifer Mohr who, >from the outset, has
coordinated the translation of this book with great energy and
dedication. Although the book is now completely translated, Jen is
now arranging for an index to be prepared for the book which is always
an invaluable additional tool that researchers can be good use of.

Continuing on with the good news, I am pleased to let you know that
the 80th book published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project has
recently hit the shelves. The book, "The Jews of Kishinev" covering
the lost Jewish community of Chisinau, Moldova has become a reality
through the enthusiastic coordination of Yefim Kogan and the wonderful
translations of volunteer, Sheli Fain, and of course, the YBIP team
led by Joel Alpert. Our grateful thanks goes out to all those involved
in the translation and publication of this book and for those
interested in learning more about the other 79 books that have been
published, please see the link to the YBIP project at the end of this
report.

Other good news. The New York Public Library has done wonders over
the years to allow us ready online access to an enormous number of
Yizkor books. It has now gone an extra step further and provided the
public with a very useful guide for viewing the online books and also
has provided useful links to other online sites, including our very
own Yizkor Book Project. In my humble opinion, a worthwhile site to
bookmark: https://libguides.nypl.org/yizkorbooks

As Purim is just around the corner, I would like to wish you dear
readers and your families, a very enjoyable time over this upbeat
holiday and wish you a Happy Purim and/or a Purim Sameach.

led by Joel Alpert. Our grateful thanks goes out to all those involved
in the translation and publication of this book and for those
interested in learning more about the other 79 books that have been
published, please see the link to the YBIP project at the end of this
report.

Other good news. The New York Public Library has done wonders over
the years to allow us ready online access to an enormous number of
Yizkor books. It has now gone an extra step further and provided the
public with a very useful guide for viewing the online books and also
has provided useful links to other online sites, including our very
own Yizkor Book Project. In my humble opinion, a worthwhile site to
bookmark: https://libguides.nypl.org/yizkorbooks

As Purim is just around the corner, I would like to wish you dear

Final Push to Complete Jezierzany Yizkor Book #yizkorbooks

Judy Brodkey
 

Shalom --

Sometimes we work hard, overcome obstacles and steadily move forward
toward an important goal but it seems to elude us. Often we just need
one final burst of energy, insight or determination to succeed. That's
why I'm writing today.

Jezierzany is a small shtetl, formerly in Galicia and now part of
Ukraine. It's about 100 miles >from Lviv. It had a vibrant Jewish
population with a rich history whose residents contributed in small
and large ways to the betterment of their community and the world.
For example, Moshe Shulbaum, one of its native sons, became a
distinguished linguist who played a major role in the development of
modern Hebrew as it is spoken in Israel today.

We've almost reached our goal of ensuring that his story and
Jezierzany's stories live on. We've been able to translate most of the
Memorial (Yizkor) Book for Jezierzany & Surroundings into English.
However, we are about $500 short of having enough money to translate
the remaining pages, part of the section concerning the holocaust and
what happened to Jezierzany's Jewish community during its final days.

Please help us complete this important project!

Your donation can be made at
www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23

Scroll down to Jezierzany and enter your donation amount there. JewishGen
has numerous Yizkor Book funds so make sure you fill in the amount for
Jezierzany.

If you prefer, you can send a check to JewishGen, Edmond J. Safra Plaza,
36 Battery Place, New York, NY 10280. Be sure to indicate that this is a
donation for the Jezierzany Memorial book.

In order to ensure that your donation is correctly credited to the
Jezierzany fund, please also let me know the amount of your contribution.
The minimum allowable contribution is $10.

In Every Generation, We Tell the Story
In April we will celebrate Passover. Each year we are instructed to tell
the story of our ancestors’ journey out of Egypt, lest we forget where we
came >from and the lessons learned along the way. Our ancestors >from
Jezierzany and other areas intentionally left their precious stories for
us and our descendants; they deserve to be shared.

If you have any questions, please contact me at Jlistbrod@.... Thank
you very much.

Shalom,

There seems to be some unwritten law that despite its shortness,
February always seems to be one of the busiest times in the Yizkor
Book Project and this last one, didn't disappoint.

To begin with, I am more than very pleased to let you know that we
have just completely translated and placed online, another Yizkor
book. This time it is the "Czyzewo Memorial Book" covering the
Czyzew-Osada, Poland community and considering that it entails 1190
columns of text (around 585 pages), this is definitely no mean feat.
Our grateful thanks go out Jennifer Mohr who, >from the outset, has
coordinated the translation of this book with great energy and
dedication. Although the book is now completely translated, Jen is
now arranging for an index to be prepared for the book which is always
an invaluable additional tool that researchers can be good use of.

Continuing on with the good news, I am pleased to let you know that
the 80th book published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project has
recently hit the shelves. The book, "The Jews of Kishinev" covering
the lost Jewish community of Chisinau, Moldova has become a reality
through the enthusiastic coordination of Yefim Kogan and the wonderful
translations of volunteer, Sheli Fain, and of course, the YBIP team
led by Joel Alpert. Our grateful thanks goes out to all those involved
in the translation and publication of this book and for those
interested in learning more about the other 79 books that have been
published, please see the link to the YBIP project at the end of this
report.
