Remembering Willi FENSTER [aged 10] from Vienna #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Willi [Willy] FENSTER was a little boy - if you look at "Letter to the Stars"
http://www.lettertothestars.at/ you will read: Willy was born on 22.07.1933 in
? His last known address was Wien 2, Rueppgasse 2/9. Willy Fenster was deported
on 09.10.1942 >from Vienna to Theresienstadt. No more details are known about
his fate. If you cross-check you will find he was deported together with
Gertrude FENSTER {5 May 1911} and Bereg FENSTER 11 Sept 1940.

Willi is not just a name, as we can see his last poignant postcard,
[beautifully written for a ten yr old child in those circumstances] on sale at
ebay [url given according to new Jewishgen ruling]: http://tinyurl.com/ynzbzt

Willi sent his card addressed to Herr Otto BOCK, Wien II, Ferdinandstraße
25/60, >from Theresienstadt – Langestrasse 18 on 16 July 1944 just before his
11th birthday:

Dear Mr Otto; I have heard of your kindness often. So I am writing to you with
permission >from Tante Roserl. My Mutti lives together with her in one room
since our arrival together. Tante Rosi is very kind to my Mutti and my three yr
old brother. My Mutti often goes with Tante Roserl to weibi, who is very sweet
and plump. etc etc.

Shortly after this card was written, Willi, his Mutti Gertrude and little
brother Bereg and most probably Tante Roserl were all murdered. I would love to
find some relatives of Willi so as to return the card to its rightful home. I
have not enough time to do the research work, which is a great shame. The card
should not go to a stamp collector. There are POTs on yad vashem for other
FENSTER >from Vienna but not for this family. The name and fate of Willi's
father is not known to me.

"Find a grave" - PISINGER [Linz], AUER [Pilsen], SCHWARZ, WALDSTEIN link revealed #austria-czech

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

I realise it is hard to find things on this site; on the Home Page you will not
find Austria or the Czech Republic listed under Europe!

So go for the next click: "Find a cemetery"
Please note that the cemeteries we are interested in are indexed under *Jewish*

http://www.findagrave.com/
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cso

Here, Austria appears under letter *A* as a country; I note that the Linz
cemetery is already on the site, with over 700 graves listed. We can also find
Steyr and Gmunden. The Czech Republic perversely appears under the letter *T*
for The Czech Republic. That is where you will find Rosenberg [Bohemia]! You
will also find one grave link for Pilsen [no photograph] and one for Brunn and
the picture of the Theresienstadt memorial.

Please look at the Pilsen entry where you will see a link to AUER of Pilsen
andPISINGER of Linz with a Partzettel [death/memorial notice] for Klara
PISINGER [nee AUER].

Birth: unknown; Death: May 9, 1880, Linz, buried Pilsen
Lawyer's wife: Dr. Bernhard PISINGER died 3. Jan. 1887, age 38; buried: Jewish
Cemetery Linz/Donau
Daughter of: Moritz and Amalie AUER
Daughter-in-law of: Rosalia PISINGER - died 30. Oct. 1885
Buried Jewish Cemetery Linz/Donau
Sister of: Simon and Heinrich SCHWARZ, Julius, Ernestine and Karl AUER.
Sister-in-law of: Pauline and Klara SCHWARZ.

If we look for Bernhard PISINGER in Linz, we also see his Partezettel;
Birth: unknown; Death: Jan. 3, 1887 aged 38
Hof und Gerichts - Advocat
First Wife: Klara see above
Second Wife:Francisca nee WALDSTEIN
Father of: Daughters of second Wife: Martha and Helene PISINGER

There are many PISINGER buried in Linz.

There may be more links like this - I have not yet had a chance to look.
We are very lucky for as well as the fabulous IKG database [24 cemeteries] we
also have on our own SIG:

1. Stockerau: http://www.jewishgen.org/bohmor/towns/Austria/StockCem.html

2 Hollabrunn: http://www.jewishgen.org/bohmor/towns/Austria/hlabrncem.htm

3. An old site on Kittsee in the Burgenland
http://www.museumonline.at/1998/schools/burgenla/BL_kitts/Kittsee.htm

This has many Hebrew inscriptions.

Dear SIG members, I saw these two posts in the

Subject: Cemetery of Villages
From: Paul Millrod <acebar@...>
Date: Mon, 18 Dec 2006 11:03:21 -0500 (EST)
X-Message-Number: 4

While traveling with a tour group in, the Soviet
Union, the time of Gorbachov, 1988, we visited a
heart stopping memorial in the Pale. It was called
the "Cemetery of Villages."

There was a huge open field, with approx. 150 masonry
fire places, with chimneys, and fastened to the
chimney was a small bell. The bell was elevated about
about
a yard above the chimney. At each hearth was an
inscribed stone with the name of a village, a memorial
light, and a glass container of earth >from the
village. At intervals the small bells would ring.

I have never heard any more about this memorial. Has
anyone any information about this memorial?

Also while in Minsk, a fellow tourist guided us into a
patch of woods behind our hotel. There was a black
granite memorial stone, inscribed in gold Yiddish
letters. It mentioned ten thousand killed by the
"German Fascist Murderers" We were informed that this
was the only memorial in Yiddish in the Soviet Union.

Has anyone else additional information concerning
these sites?

I found "Cemetery of Villages" at:

http://www.khatyn.by/en/about/excursion/step9/

which was built on the grounds of the Belorussian
village of Katyn. Is this the cemetery Mr. Millrod
asked about?

There are other websites about Katyn's The Cemetery of
Villges", one of which asserts that "it was the
Belorussian people who suffered most, not the Jews..."

Also, for the granite memorial Mr. Millrod mention, he
should go to:

http://www.khatyn.by/en/about/excursion/step9/

which says that on October 29, 2004, the Belorussian
Jewish Community intalled a monument of brown granite
inscribed in Yiddish and Belarussian...for the victims

SILBERSTON family #belarus

Sarah Silberston <sarah@...>
 

I would appreciate any advice to help me research my family history. My
great-grandfather, ISAAC SILBERSTON, (born around 1839) and
great-grandmother, Gertrude/Gelli (born around 1843), came >from KLETSK.
They had at least four sons, Abraham (my grandfather), Zavill/Samuel, Zalick
and Leizchic/Louis, and a daughter, Bushki/Bessie. I have traced them all
as living in London on the 1901 census, and am trying to find out when and
how they came to England, and any details >from before this period. I
believe the family name was originally SHAKHNOVICH/SACKNOVITCH. I can find
no trace of them on the 1891 UK census, but have found Louis in a London
business directory of 1890, so he at least must have been in the UK at that
time. Also, my father used to speak of relatives called ROBINSON who had 13
children, I wonder if this was another daughter of Isaac who was married
prior to the 1901 census?

I have now reached a dead end, and any pointers that could help me would be
most gratefully received.

Dear Readers,

First my greetings for an enjoyable Chanukah holiday !

It is my intention to travel to VILKAVISKIS, Southern Lithuania in August
2007 to photograph the several hundred Jewish gravestones at the Jewish
Cemetery there.Salingers lived in Vilkaviskis >from around 1805 until the
destruction of the community In 1941.

The Cemetery has been fenced and is maintained by the local council.

To date I received the blessings of the Jewish Community in Vilnius as well
as >from the Mayor of Vilkaviskis.

I have a hand drawn map of the Jewish community of VILKAVISKIS and I am
attempting to index this map and link the names with the various databases
on the net, particularly Yad Vashem.

I would be more than delighted to hear >from anyone who has either
information on their family >from Vilkowiskis or is interested in either
coming along or can offer any other kind of support.

At: http://www.picturetrail.com/ralphs11 you can get idea of the project!

Looking forward to your response,

NARA: Canadian Border Crossings #general

Gladys Paulin <paulin@...>
 

All,
Joel Weintraub's note, reproduced in part below, explains how to find the
St. Albans lists. However, this search will bring up only those Canadian border
crossing records labeled "St. Albans". To locate the many passenger arrival
records that are now available through NARA (and most are also in the LDS family
history library catalog), go to the order microfilm page:
http://archives.gov/research/order/orderonline.html?microfilm
Click on: "do a microfilm search" On the resulting page, do an advanced search,
available in the upper left corner of the page. In that search box, place only the
Record Group number 85, the number assigned for the immigration service. Then click
search and you will get a listing of approximately 200 publications of all the
immigration records available through NARA on microfilm. Most are passenger
arrivals, but naturalization records and indexes to some textual records
have also been microfilmed. If you scroll through these films, you will
find that there are Canadian border crossing records for some locations
that are not included in the ST. Albans lists as well as later records >from some
locations that are only included in the earlier St. Albans lists.

A good course of action is to try the St. Albans lists first; also try the
Detroit crossings which indexes are available on that popular commercial site.
Then, if you are still drawing a blank, try to determine the probable crossing
location and check those films. This can be tedious, but sometimes you can find
great rewards, like my great aunt who lived in Canada and visited her brother (my
paternal grandfather) about 6 months before she died; the card showed her date and
place of birth. Thorough genealogical research of all possible records can yield
bonuses.

Happy Hanukkah to all,
Gladys

information on any NARA film, here's a trick. Go to:

Which is the order window for NARA films. For this example, under search
(right hand side of screen) choose "Microfilm" and on the box to the
rightput "St Albans" and press search. You will see a list of films.
Choose one of the films, say the first one...by clicking on the title.
Now you will see more about the film but especially note on the right hand
side two features. First, there is a pdf file (link) telling you about
the publication (film series), and more important, a table that shows
which NARA facility has that film.


Question about LEVIN #general

Hello to all,
Some accent the first syllable in pronouncing Levin as LEV-in. Others accent the
2nd syllable as Le-VIN. Is this a matter of personal choice? Also, would anyone
have any idea why someone, in changing their name, would add GE to Levin making it
LEVINGE....especially if they were Jewish? That name is more British or Irish in
origin.
Thanks for your help.
