JewishGen Updates Holocaust Database #austria-czech

Nolan Altman
 

JewishGen.org is pleased to announce the completion of its most recent
update to the JewishGen Holocaust Database. The database can be accessed
directly at https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/ The database now
includes more than 2.75 million records >from approximately 200 component
databases.

All component databases (individual data sets) have a project introduction.
The introduction gives you further information about the historical
background of the data, location of the original source document, fields
used in the database, translation aides when applicable and acknowledgments
to those that helped with data entry, validation and online preparation of
the data set.

A listing of each of the component databases can be found by scrolling down
the main search page. All data can be searched in one database-wide search
from the Holocaust Database home page.
The database continues to grow, thanks in large part to partnerships with
other organizations and receiving interesting original research by JewishGen
users and academicians. We believe JewishGen is an ideal location for the
preservation and "publishing" of these pieces.

Selected new additions include:

Czudec, Poland - Residents Lists, Birth and Death Records: An index
of 1,215 Jewish residents >from 1940-1942, and 14 birth and death records.

(Israel) National Library of Israel Documenting the Operational History of the Soldiers of the Israel Defense Forces #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Can you help the National Library of Israel?

The National Library of Israel announced they preserved thousands of
photographs documenting the operational history of the Israel Defense Forces
(IDF). The library is lacking information relating to the identities of the
soldiers. There are over 2.5 million photographs spanning 150 years. They
are requesting the public's help to identify their names and stories.

The National Library partnered with Facebook Israel to make the photographs
more accessible to the public. The photos are now being uploaded to the
National Library's Facebook page.

Passing of GerSIG's great friend Fritz Neubauer. May 8, 2019 #germany

John Paul Lowens <jplowens@...>
 

I have just learned that Fritz Neubauer, a generous and prolific
contributor to the GerSIG Email Discussion Group and to
several other JewishGen projects, passed away yesterday.
I join the GerSIG community in sending condolences to the Neubauer
family.

Fritz was a retired educator at Bielefeld University in Germany. He
kept copies of several Holocaust victim memorial books on his desk at
the University and used them to help GerSIG members locate lost
relatives. He lectured about memorial books at at least one IAJGS
Conference.

I'll post other information about Mr. Neubauer to the GerSIG Forum
soon.

If you have an anecdote about how Fritz helped your
research please share it with the group by sending it to:

Dear Rabbinical genealogy Members

I am presently working on my PLATO ancestry line as my great grandfather
is Immanuel PLATO born in Koln (1863-1937). He was the Rabbi of Koln and
Hamburg.

Thanks to the precious assistance of the Mendelsohn Akademie in
Halberstadt, I could trace back his ancestors >from Halberstadt in
Saxony-Anhalt. His father is the Rabbi Zvi Hirsch PLATO (1822-1910) and
was the chief Rabbi of Koln and the grandfather Hirsch Marcus Plato
(1756-1814) also >from Halberstadt.

More information on him in the article below
https://www.virtualjudaica.com/Listing/Details/1161547/Kunteres-Kundesin-veAurat-ha-Pesach-R-Zevi-Plato-Frankfort-am-Main-1882
[or https://tinyurl.com/y4yusmvt --Mod.]

I found in the above article that Rabbi Zvi Hirsch PLATO would be a
descendant of R. Moses ISSERLIS.

Does anyone would have insight in this statement? I saw that Rabbi
ISSERLIS/ISSERLES has descendants in Halberstadt. Would that be an opening?

Thanks and best regards

Zvi PLATO from Halberstadt and Hannah PHILLIP b. in nearby Oscherselben in Saxony-Anhalt #germany

Dear Gersig Members

I am presently working on my PLATO ancestry line as my great grand
father is Immanuel PLATO born in Koln (1863-1937). He was the Rabbi of
Koln and Hamburg.

Thanks to the precious assistance of the Mendelsohn Akademie in
Halberstadt, I could trace back his ancestors >from Halberstadt in
Saxony-Anhalt. His father is the Rabbi Zvi Hirsch PLATO (1822-1910) and
was the chief Rabbi of Koln and the grandfather Hirsch Marcus Plato
(1756-1814) also >from Halberstadt.

I have two requests for assistance as I am at a dead end for a few
months.

1. The mother of Rabbi Zvi Hirsch PLATO is named Hanna PHILIP born in
Oscherselben in Saxony-Anhalt (a few kilometers >from Halbertadt )in 1781
who died in Halbertadt in 1864. Other than that I have no other
information on her parents. Would anyone have data on Oscherselben, or
on the PHILIPP of the region?

2. the wife of the Hirsch Marcus PLATO is named J Gente CALOMON
(1753-1820 died in Halbertadt). I never found any information on Calomon
which seems to be very uncommon.

I have registrars extract on those people.

Thanks and best regards
