(Lithuania) Vilnius Church Stairway Made of Jewish Gravestones Has Been Dismantled #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Lithuanian Jewish Community website reports that a stairway to a church
in Vilnius made of Jewish metzevahs (gravestones) has been removed >from the
Protestant Evangelical Church that were placed there by Soviet authorities.
Under Soviet rule the building was turned into the Kronika cinema >from 1957
until 1990, when it was returned to Church ownership. The front stairway
made up of seven steps was installed when the conversion was carried out.
The world became aware in 2013 that the steps were made >from metzevahs.

After several years of working with the Lithuanian Cultural Heritage
Department and the Vilnius Protestant Evangelical governing council to
determine if the stairs were indeed taken >from Jewish cemeteries it was
determined the headstones were removed >from the Uzupis old Jewish Cemetery
in the neighborhood in Vilnius. Jewish headstones were used in the
construction of the stairs. The cemetery used to have tens of thousands of
burials but was razed in the 1960s; the gravestones were razed in the late
1940s.. It was then used for a quarry for building material. Many of the
headstones have been recovered and returned to the Uzupis Cemetery.

Trying to find student lists from Religious Schools in Berlin #germany

fredelfruhman
 

Hello,
I am wondering whether there are any databases with lists of students
who attended Jewish schools in Berlin in the 1930's.

Specifically, I am interested in the "Religionsschule der juedischen
Gemeinde" for the school year 1930-1931. Even more specifically:
the grade level called the "Unterklasse".

Any leads would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Seeking date of death, obit or death record for Luba(Wolfson)Hofberg #general

sacredsisters677 sacredsisters677 <sacredsisters677@...>
 

Hi all
I am trying to find any information on Luba(Wolfson)Hofberg. Her
sibling Bernice(Wolson)Rakovschik died in Belarus Russia sometime
between 1914-1915. Luba may have been the only one to immigrate to
America. I have been trying to find her DOD/Obit, and death record.
She was still alive according to the 1940 census. Luba was married
to a Harry Hofberg and had two sons Leo and Victor who was born in
Romania which is a mystery why. They settled in New York, the Bronx
I think. All help is appreciated.

Moshe SCHLEZINGER (SZLEZINGER) married to Brana SZCZUCINER (SZTULCER in JRI's index), 1889, Wyszogrod, Poland #general

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

Hi, I am looking for a SCHLEZINGER family that married into my SZCZUCINER.
I have Brana SZCZUCINER's (one of my great great grandmother's sister)
marriage record, to a Moshe SZLEZINGER, dated >from 1889, at Wyszogrod,
Plock district, Poland.

Moshe's parents are Chaim and Blina (nee Torysz ?! a guess...)
There is a marriage index at JRI >from Ciechanow, dated >from 1850,
between Chaim SZLEZINGER and Blima TORYSZ. Could be Moshe's parents.

Yaakov Yeshayahu (Jakow Szaia) SZLEZINGER, married to Sura Nacha
KOZEBROCKI, on 1896, could be a brother (basing my guess on the fact
that Yaakov's marriage index shows up in the same JRI index batch as
Moshe, and >from my experience, constitutes a good chance that the
families are related)

If you happen to have any additional details on any of the families
mentioned above, please reply back privately.

Thanks in advance,
Avraham Yehoshua Kahana
Israel


Shalom WAJCMAN (Weitzman/Weisman, from Wyszogrod, Poland) married to Nechama KANO (from Wiskitki, Poland), on 1884 #general

Avraham Y. Kahana
 

Hi, I am looking after relatives of the WAJCMAN family that married to
one of my great great grandfather's siblings.

Here is what I collected on them so far:

Shalom Wajcman, born on Wyszogrod, son of Avraham Yitzchak and Reizel,
married to Nechama Kano, >from Wiskitki, at the year of 1884 - at that
town. I believe Shalom was born around 1864. Nechama was born on 1865

Their children:

Reizel
Chaja Necha (deceased as an infant - died of desease)
Ester Fejga (deceased as an infant - died of desease)
Szyja
Rachel
Tsertel (Cerka)
Moshe
Chaim Yossef
Yitzchak (deceased as an infant - died of desease)
Mendel (died on 1897)

I assume this WAJCMAN family was >from Wyszogrod.

If you connect to them, please reply back privately.

Thanks in advance,
Avraham Yehoshua Kahana
