(Canada) Several Provincial Archives to Relocate/Close #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan is closing its Saskatoon Center to
the public on December 21. They are in the process of moving the Saskatoon
office and records to Regina and consolidating the archives there. The move
is expected to be completed by August 2019.

After 100 years, the Archives de Montreal will be leaving city hall and
relocating in January to 5800 rue Saint-Denis near the Rosemont Metro
Station. In preparing for the move, archives employees have spent the year
taking a detailed inventory of the collections.

According to the Archives de Montreal, the move will ultimately improve the
preservation of the records. Part of the city hall renovations includes work
on the vaults used by the archives that were built in 1919 and 1952. These
vaults have become obsolete over time. There is no word when the Archives
de Montreal will return to city hall but it will most probably be after
2022.

All staff and departments are moving out of city hall in order for major
renovations to begin in 2019. The work should be completed in 2022. During
the three-year period, the building will be closed.

Is my grandmother wearing a Galician school uniform? #galicia

I posted an image of my grandmother on ViewMate:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM70446

I'm trying to determine if it was taken in Galicia (Stanislawow) or
New York City's lower east side. I'm also wondering about my
Grandmother's outfit. Could it be a school uniform >from Galicia?

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

(UK) Wiener Holocaust Library Looking For Assistance In Identifying German-Jewish Photographer Subjects #unitedkingdom

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Wiener Library (London, England) is one of the world's oldest museums
dedicated to the Holocaust and Nazi era. (https://www.wienerlibrary.co.uk).
It has begun a search to uncover the identities of people featured in
photographs taken by a German- Jewish photographer, Gerty Simon, who fled
Germany to London 85 years ago. They are looking for assistance in
discovering the names of 80 individuals who were photographed by Gerty
Simon, for a planned exhibition next year.

Photographer Simon was already well-established as a photographer before she
left Berlin in 1933. Some of her subjects were Weimar Berlin artists,
politicians, cultural figures and she became one of Britain's most
successful author of children's books.

Once she arrived in London she took photographs of a number of British
famous people. An article in the Times of Israel gives a brief biography of
Ms. Simon, including about her son and husband being interned as part of the
round-up of "enemy aliens" in June 1940 when the British presumed a German
invasion was imminent. Her son was part of the infamous voyage of the
Dunera when many Jewish-German refugees were transported to Australia.
After her son's death in 1970, his partner donated his papers and archives
including hundreds of Ms. Simon's portraits to the Wiener Library in 2016.

The Wiener has catalogued and digitized the images and commenced a social
media effort to identify the unknown individuals. The unidentified images
have been uploaded to Flickr for the public to help identify the unknown
subjects. To see the unidentified photos go to:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/142862320@N08/sets/72157702691117974
The library is encouraging the use of the hashtag #FindingGerty to increase
awareness of its search.

If there are notes on the back of the photographs the images are so
labeled, as well as if the staff has determined if the photograph is of a
person >from Germany or London. Some successes advise that the photograph
could be someone visiting Germany or London, >from another country,
therefore, everyone should look at the photos.
