JewishGen Future Scholars Fellowship Heritage Tour #lithuania

Nancy Siegel
 

JewishGen.org is proud to announce its JewishGen Future Scholars Fellowship.

This immersive program, created in partnership with The Matzevah
Foundation, Inc., will provide an experiential opportunity for younger
audiences to appreciate the application and impact JewishGen, and
Jewish genealogy can have in everyday life.

Specifically, it will focus on the role of Jewish cemeteries today in
preserving the memory and legacy of former Jewish communities. Our six
highly qualified Fellows will learn about symbols on tombstones, the
state of Jewish cemeteries in Poland after Holocaust, efforts to
preserve them, and what lessons can be gleaned to inform our own life
choices today.

Throughout the 10-day experience, >from June 12-June 20, Fellows will
have an opportunity to visit many Jewish heritage sites including
Warsaw and Lublin, spend an inspirational Shabbat in Krakow, and visit
Auschwitz/Birkenau. The group will then spend time in Krzepice,
Poland, where they will participate in the clean-up and preservation
of the Jewish cemetery in partnership with the local high school.
(Krzepice is about 25 kilometers west of Czestochowa.)

The trip will be led by highly experienced staff (including Avraham
Groll, Dan Oren, and Steven D. Reece), and participants will have an
opportunity to learn >from rabbis, scholars, dignitaries, and community
leaders, who will offer first-hand insights regarding the imperative
(and challenges) of cleaning-up cemeteries in accordance with Jewish
law. They will address how local Polish communities view Jewish
cemeteries in their towns, the need to preserve Jewish memory, and
more.

Upon returning home, each Fellow will write an essay reflecting on his
or her experience. These essays will be made available on the
JewishGen website.

Please be sure to follow our JewishGen Fellows, and check our Facebook

(France) Ramps Up Bid to Return Stolen WW ll Jewish Assets #france

Jan Meisels Allen
 

French Prime Minister Edouard Phillippe said it has launched a project
to return cultural artifacts stolen >from Jews during World War ll. A new
task force was created to "shed light on cultural assets of dubious origins
held by public institutions." The assets were stolen between 1933 and 1945.
It is estimated that about 2,000 artifacts were sent >from Germany to France
after World War ll. They are held in French museums under "special status"
as their owners are not yet identified. Their status also means they should
never leave France.

Last month France and Germany signed an agreement to improve cooperation
in returning the seized objects to their rightful owners.

Researchers will work with libraries, archives and the French Foreign
Office to examine the cases individually, whether claims were filed by
family or uncovered during the investigation.

Musician Henrik TABORSKY - Family Tie with WOLFSTHAL Family #germany

Yaron Wolfsthal
 

As I build the family tree of the WOLFSTHAL family of musicians (who
worked between Galicia and Vienna) I came across the name a musician
called Henryk TABORSKY >from Wienna, who (according to reports, see
link) was married to the granddaughter of Herman WOLFSTHAL:
https://musik-austria.at/mensch/henryk-taborski/

Even with some effort, I could not find more information on Henryk
TABORSKY's wife. I wonder if anyone on the GerSIG list would have any
details about this musician and where I may look for the information
about his family. Many Thanks!
