This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

Between the world wars, the situation for Jews in Devenishki, then part of Poland
and now in Lithuania, became grim in the face of widespread hunger, mass
unemployment and heavy taxation by the government. Many young Jews, full of ideals
of justice and brotherhood, attempted to cross the border to Russia in the
mistaken belief they would find better conditions under the progressive Bolshevik
regime. They were mistaken, as Eilohu Wiener recounts in Under Confinement with
Russians, Poles and Germans in the Yizkor book of Devenishki. Wiener and his
friends were taken by Russian guards to a camp where they realized that we had been
foolish and had gotten ourselves into a venture for which we might pay with our
lives. They were interrogated daily and pressured to return to Poland to spy. Then
the Russians released them and years later, Wiener learned the answer to the
mystery of why they were let go. His ordeal was not over, but ultimately he
escaped the coming Holocaust and lived out his life in Israel.

JewishGen Updates Holocaust Database #general

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.

German SIG #Germany JewishGen Updates Holocaust Database #germany

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.

In Memory of Fritz Neubauer -"Fritz represented the very best of JewishGen. He was a mensch in the best sense of the word." #germany

If you have an memory of how GerSIG's late friend
Fritz Neubauer was helpful to GerSIG, JewishGen or
your own family research please send it to:
GerSIGmod@Gmail.com.

My interactions with this wonderful man were limited to email. I had
posted an inquiry asking if anyone could translate the 4-page bill
emailed by the Stadtarchiv in Dusseldorf. Fritz responded that they
wanted 8 Euros to email my great grandmother's death certificate and
the remaining 3 pages were legalese/bureaucratese about my appeal
rights. So then I posted an inquiry asking if anyone had ideas how I
could pay 8 Euros for this death certificate when the government
office only accepted wire transfers and a wire transfer would cost me $40.

Fritz emailed me and offered to pay the fee and suggested I could pay
him back in zlotys if I was planning to attend the IAJGS in Warsaw
later that year. Since I wasn't planning to attend, he gave me his
daughter's mailing address in the US where I could mail the
reimbursement check. He had never met me but immediately sent off
"the princely sum" ( his words) of 8 Euros and followed up with the
government office to ensure its receipt and application to my document
request.

When I told him I had family who had lived once in Bielefeld, he
immediately offered to assist in any research I needed.

Fritz represented the very best of JewishGen. He was a mensch in the
best sense of the word.
