New books in the JewishGenMall #lithuania

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

We'd like to bring your attention to the following new additions to the
wealth of books, and other items of interest already available.

"Escape".... A Jewish Scandinavian family in the Second World War.
The story of Jews in Scandinavia >from medieval times through the upheavals
of the 20th century, told in the context of the national movements,
attitudes and policies that are inseparable >from history.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Refuge" ...Surviving the Nazi Occupation of Poland: Memoirs of Kalman
Horowitz, The story of his escapes >from death and survival in the forests
of Poland is told by Leo, son of Kalman. This book contains salvaged
photographs as well as those depicting experiences. A memorial to Kalman
Horowitz, and to all the others.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Let Them Journey" True stories uniting the past with the future,
told in simple words by the people describing their lives and giving the
reader an informative panorama of the varied Jewish experiences in the 20th
century. Especially appropriate for young adults who can benefit >from the
stories of Jewish life in the Diaspora.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Flight To Survival" The compelling account of a coming of age story
of a young woman's bravery and will to live. In simple prose, often laced
with her own brand of humor, Peninah Cypkewicz-Rosin tells of her life
from the time the Nazis invaded her home town in 1939, to ultimate survival
in Eretz Yisrael in 1945.

Please make the JewishGenMall your first stop for gifts, since the revenue
it generates goes towards support of all the programs and projects we
provide. The books we are announcing above are just a tiny portion of the
offerings available at < http://www.jewishgenmall.org/ >

Many thanks for your anticipated support.

Re: Penza pogrom? #general

Tilford Bartman <bartmant@...>
 

Kulak is a pejorative term in Soviet political language. It refers to a
relatively wealthy peasant. The Soviets are believed to have murdered
hundreds of thousands (perhaps more) people for no other reason than
they had this term applied to them, often for absurd reasons. The idea
was that they had to be eliminated to make way for the "Kolkhoz"
collective farmers. This was part of "class war". To my knowledge with
few if any exceptions these people were murdered with no official record
kept of their murders, and no one was ever held accountable and bought
to justice for these crimes There were Jews among the perpetrators of
these crimes but I don't really know and tend to doubt that they were
commonly found among the victims. I believe Jews by definition were not
regarded as part of the peasant class. So I would be skeptical that your
relation was among the hundred victims. I also would not call this event
a "pogrom".

GREENSTEIN/SIEGEL/WEISS from Transcarpathia/Hungary #general

Pamela Weisberger <pweisberger@...>
 

I'm looking for anyone related to Louis (Lipot/Leopold) GRUNSTEIN married to
Zali/Sally Weisz, >from Ulics Kriva (today Krive) in the Transcarpathian area
of Hungary (today Slovakia/Ukraine). Their name became GREENSTEIN once in
the US. (They were both born circa 1860s)

Lipot GREENSTEIN came to the States in 1901, stayed for four years, returned
to Hungary, and then returned by 1910.

His two oldest children: Etel (Ethel) circa 1898, Fransiczka (Frieda),
(1896) traveled to the US in 1921 with cousins, Samuel and Adele Weisz (>from
Csap).

They were being brought to their father who was already living in
Philipsburg, NJ in a tailor shop. The mother, Zali, followed in 1927 with
their other two daughters, Bertha (Barbara/Blanche) and Giza (Gussie) to
join their father on "Louis St." in New York City.

Zali's brother might have been Michael Weiss >from Poughkeepsie. Her parents
would have been Efraim and Hani (Perlmutter) WEISZ.

In the 1930 census they are all living on Avenue C and Ethel is newly
married to Jacob SIEGEL (a tinsmith) >from Romania. Louis is a proprietor of
a dress store, the girls are working in a bakery and hat factory.

If these Greensteins, Weisses, or Siegels match with your family history,
please contact me privately!

Kaunas Uyezd Group (KUG) News #lithuania

Rabbi Ben-Zion Saydman <ravbenzi@...>
 

B"H

Dear KUG Supporters (KUGels):

After years of legendary work, Ada Green stepped down as KUG
Coordinator. The universe abhors a void, so I was chosen to serve as
the next Coordinator. My first official act is to publicly thank Ada for
her superhuman efforts on behalf of all of our ancestors who hail from
Kovno Guberniya. It is due to Ada's tireless efforts that we have been able
to connect with the paper trail of our ancestors. In Ada's farewell letter,
we learned that the cream of the crop of Lithuanian records has been
harvested.

My second official act is to inform you that we have heeded Ada's advice and
we have begun searching elsewhere. >from a link on the Israel Genealogical
website, I am happy to report that we found a huge treasure trove of
previously unknown Kovno Guberniya records at the Central Archives for the
History of the Jewish People (CAHJP) in Jerusalem. After months of
negotiations, this fabulous news was formally released by LitvakSIG District
Research Groups Coordinator (and my cousin), Olga Zabludoff, this past week.
To paraphrase Olga:

"The inventory is quite extensive and includes lists that span a time frame
between 1816 and 1903, covering such categories as lists of students and
teachers in Jewish institutions in various towns; lists of students in
rabbinical colleges in Kovno and Vilna; lists of graduates >from Vilna Jewish
Pedagogical Institute; lists of candidates for the position of pharmacist
helper in Kovno Gymnasium; lists of school directors and teachers in the
various guberniyas; lists of merchants >from Kovno Guberniya and Vilna town."

Thanks to Ada's advice, we began thinking outside the box and we discovered
a gold mine. I am pleased to announce that Kovno Guberniya has been given
the honor of first priority in the new CAHJP project as a token of
appreciation to the nice young rabbi who discovered the gold mine.
The first lists to be indexed and translated are: 1844-48 lists of students
and teachers of Kovno Guberniya which includes Kovno, Rumshishok
and Keidan.

If you are as excited about this discovery as I am, please support the
project. No one likes to schnorr, but sometimes the goal is worth the risk.
Now is one of those times. If you are currently a KUG supporter (KUGel),
or if you are interested in joining the Kaunas Uyezd Group (KUG) and
becoming a KUGel, please print the form at:

http://www.jewishgen.org/litvak/HTML/donor.htm and kindly send your
generous contribution.

We'd like to bring your attention to the following new additions to the
wealth of books, and other items of interest already available.

"Escape".... A Jewish Scandinavian family in the Second World War.
The story of Jews in Scandinavia >from medieval times through the upheavals

attitudes and policies that are inseparable >from history.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Refuge" ...Surviving the Nazi Occupation of Poland: Memoirs of Kalman
Horowitz, The story of his escapes >from death and survival in the forests
of Poland is told by Leo, son of Kalman. This book contains salvaged
photographs as well as those depicting experiences. A memorial to Kalman

We'd like to bring your attention to the following new additions to the
wealth of books, and other items of interest already available.

"Escape".... A Jewish Scandinavian family in the Second World War.
The story of Jews in Scandinavia >from medieval times through the upheavals
of the 20th century, told in the context of the national movements,
attitudes and policies that are inseparable >from history.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Refuge" ...Surviving the Nazi Occupation of Poland: Memoirs of Kalman
Horowitz, The story of his escapes >from death and survival in the forests
of Poland is told by Leo, son of Kalman. This book contains salvaged
photographs as well as those depicting experiences. A memorial to Kalman
Horowitz, and to all the others.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Let Them Journey" True stories uniting the past with the future,
told in simple words by the people describing their lives and giving the
reader an informative panorama of the varied Jewish experiences in the 20th
century. Especially appropriate for young adults who can benefit >from the
stories of Jewish life in the Diaspora.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Flight To Survival" The compelling account of a coming of age story
of a young woman's bravery and will to live. In simple prose, often laced
with her own brand of humor, Peninah Cypkewicz-Rosin tells of her life
from the time the Nazis invaded her home town in 1939, to ultimate survival
in Eretz Yisrael in 1945.
