Family Diamant Lebi from Avasfelsofalu (Hungarian or Negresti (Roumainian) #hungary

anita.tarsi@...
 

Dear Colleagues,

Family Diamant Lebi was a huge family living in Avasfelsofalu for many
years, some of them moved to Uzhorod or Ungvar and then dispersed all
over Czechoslovakia and even emigrate to other continents... From
those that stayed at the village only a few of them survived the
Holocaust. I'm looking for information about the family live in
Avasfelsofalu.
The first ancestors we know about, were Mozes Diamant Lebi born circa
1845 and his wife Nina Leah nee Singer, born circa 1850. They had 10
children who adopted between Diamant or Lebi for last name. The family
became somehow strange, buy having siblings different last names...
Was that somehow a tradition at the area?
Hoping to get answers,
Anita Tarsi

Diamant Lebi family #subcarpathia

Vivian Kahn
 

Avasfelsofalu was in Szatmar megye, Hungary, and is now in Romania. It =
never was in Sub-Carpathia.

I suggest that you check the Hungary database, where I found a birth =
record for DIAMAND Jentel, daughter of Mozes and wife Nina ZENGER born =
Avasfelsofalu, March 1895. Mozes was >from Avasfelsofalu, Nina >from =
Nagykaroly, now Carei, Romania.

Lebi is most likely a given name, not part of a surname.

Dear friends,
I'm looking for information about the Lebi Diamant family from
Negresti, or in Hungarian Avasfelsofalu, close to the Ukranian border.
Also I would like to know if having two last names was a tradition at
the region. The parents of this family, Mozes born in 1845 and Nina
Leah nee Singer born in 1850 used two family names: Lebi Diamant Ten
children were born, as adults they used one of the last names becoming
a strange family, siblings having different last names...
Hoping to have responses!

Bezirksrabbiner and Klaus Rabbi #general

Stephen Denker
 

In Germany, several rabbis whom I am researching in Germany during the period
1850 - 1940, held the positions -- "Bezirksrabbiner" or "Klaus Rabbi". I would
like to understand exactly what these positions mean. Was a Bezirksrabbiner
the rabbi of an entire district or town, whose salary was paid by the German
state, and officially appointed to the position by a governing (Jewish)
state-level organization?

Was a Klaus Rabbi the Rabbi of a particular synagogue?

Where can I go for more information?

Anniversary of three historical events of the 20 century #germany

Yvonne Stern
 

This week the world will remember three important historical events
of the 20 century.

The 80th anniversary of the Reichspogromnacht will be on November 9th, 2018.
Crystal Night was the catastrophe before the catastrophe.

During the November 1938 Pogroms in Germany and Austria, more than
1,400 synagogues, prayer rooms and other meeting rooms as well as
thousands of Jewish businesses,shops, apartments and cemeteries
were vandalized. This included my grandparents home at Otto Beckstrasse
in Mannheim. In the days following, approximately 30,000 Jews
were imprisoned in concentration camps where hundreds were murdered
or died as a result of their imprisonment.

51 years later, on November 9th 1989, the Berlin Wall came down.

This week, the world will celebrate the anniversary of that fall.
When access to East Germany returned 29 years ago, it opened a
new world for Jews with German roots. Since then, little by little,
we've regained access to data of our ancestors and the cities where
they had lived and the cemeteries where they were buried.

This Sunday, the world will celebrate the 100th anniversary of
the end to "The War to end all Wars".

On November 11, the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918,
Germany signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in
a railroad car outside Compiegne.

The First World War (1914 - 1918) left 9 million soldiers dead and
21 million wounded. About 100,000 Jews fought on the German side,
12,000 of them were killed in action including my uncle, barely
20 years old.

Status of Hungarian Government Reparations #hungary

mefarkas@...
 

My father, Kalman Gutlohn (later in the U.S. became Clarence K. Grant)
was placed into Hungarian forced labor, detachment number 109/36 in
spring of 1941. He "served" in the 109/36 until approximately
October, or November of 1944.
In the 1930's he completed his compulsory military service for
Hungary, when Jews could still be inducted into the army.

Does anyone know if the Hungarian government has ever paid reparations
for the toil of the Jewish men during the 1940's?
