Meaning of Fruchthaendler ohne #germany

Richard Welch <rwelch@...>
 

There is a notation after Hermann LAZARUS' name in an 1807 listing of
individuals in the village of Appenheim that he was a Fruchthaendler ohne
Niederlage. I know that the first word translates as fruit trader, and the
last two words translate literally as without settlement, but what exactly
did that mean for this Jewish man?

Tomaszow Mazowiecki, Tuszyn, Widawa, and Zelow. See thee ShtetLink site for

HOFFMAN #lodz #poland

Keith Hatfield <hatfield.1@...>
 

I am searcging for relatives of a Josef HOFFMAN born in Habry,
Czechoslovakia in 1860 to Alois Eljiezer and Therese Rivka. HOFFMAN. I
believe that his son was Khaim Yekhil / Chaim HOFFMAN, who had recorded his
details on the Yad Vashem site. Khaim Yekhil was I believe the husband of
my Mother's Aunt Ida ADLER born in Lodz, Poland 14.1.1909.
Does any one recognise these names?

Post WWI Austrian citizenship #galicia

Suzan & Ron Wynne <srwynne@...>
 

This is in response to Lancy Spalter's provacative posting a couple of days
ago. I've been re-reading Wm. O. McCagg Jr.'s book The Story of Hapsburg
Jews, 1670-1918 and, while McCagg doesn't specifically discuss the issue of
post WWI citizenship, he does discuss the social and economic context of
post-war conditions. The war had created tremendous physical disruption in
Galicia. Galician Jews were expelled by the invading Russian army, whole
towns along the path of battle were destroyed, and many Jews returned
post-war, to find that they had to start all over again. Moving to Vienna,
where about 200,000 very poor Galicians had lived in overcrowded and
underemployed conditions pre-war, must have seemed a less attractive option
than trying to stay in familiar surroundings where they had family and
community support.

I say Vienna, because, in Austria proper, few Jews lived outside of that
city. Austria's punishment for the war was harsh. The country lost its
territorial possessions and was reduced to a poor, mostly agricultural
country with virtually no industry and very little economic power. Vienna
had suffered badly in the 1873 economic downturn and never really recovered.
Then, there was rampant anti-Jewish fervor in the rural and small town
population outside of Vienna because the very conservative, Catholic
populace was fearful of Socialism, which they associated with Jews.

Altogether, not a very welcoming place. There were massive problems in
Poland as well, of course. I don't mean to minimize them. But, it makes
sense that people would have been seeking safety, a way to make a decent
living, and comfort. It just doesn't seem that Vienna would have offered any
of those features.

I'd be interested in hearing >from others about their point of view on this
topic.

Re: Citizenship after WWI #galicia

Bev Beiman <bbevy@...>
 

Fellow researcher M. Goldberger drew my attention to the relevant clauses of
the Treaty of Peace between the Allied and Associate Powers and Austria. The
answer is that Galitzianers were automatically granted Polish citizenship
BUT they had a 12-month period to opt for Austrian citizenship. Very few of them > did.

My new question is: WHY?
The truth is, I don't know the answer why, but I can add something to
the mystery.

My Galician family spent WWone in Vienna. After the war they spent
their time waiting for one of my uncles to return >from a Russian POW
camp and tending various members of the family back in Bucaczowce who
were caught up (and died) in the Spanish Flu epidemic.

The family moved to The Netherlands in 1920.

At the archives in The Hague I found passport applications, before
they became citizens of Holland, for my grandfather and several of my
older uncles dated in the 20s. They were not granted passports but
rather Laissez Passers as "stateless persons", noting that the country
they came from, namely the Austrian Empire, no longer existed and they
therefore had no citizenship at all.

I don't have the documents at hand for the exact wording, but that is
the gist of it.
