The KOFFLER family #romania

Jacob <koppler@...>
 

Hello,
My name is Jack KOFFLER and I'm >from Israel.
I'm new to the family history research. I have some troubles because my father
isn't cooperating.
All that I know is this:
My father Romanian name is Bazil KOFFLER, and he was born in Bucharest.
They lived in Nerva Traian st. no. 42 or 46 (we don't know exactly).
His father was Jack KOFFLER born in 1892 in Bucharest. He had a restaurant
in Bucharest, which he got >from his father, But we don't know the name of
the restaurant. It was in the street named Dudesti, not far >from the restaurant
was Sinagoga Mare. My father's grandfather was Baruch KOFFLER and he was born in
Austria, we don't know where.
He was probably born in 1844 and got to Bucharest in 1848. His father was
Yosef Koffler >from Austria, and we don't know anything about him.

I also have some pictures.
I'm looking for any relatives and the connection back to Austria.
So far I have learned that the KOFFLER family probably originated in
Austria around Tyrol, but all the records >from back then are Christians.
I Don't know where and when the Jews picked up the KOFFLER name, or that
it was a Jewish name all along.
Any help is welcomed.
Regards,
Jack KOFFLER

Associated Press reports the accord will probably be signed July 26 in
Berlin, then all 11 signatory nations have to ratify it.

It still remains unclear when researchers will be able to access the
archives.

Location of Kazmazah, Transnistria #romania

Mrslats@...
 

In the book Flares of Memory, a collection of stories >from survivors who
were teenagers during the holocaust, my mother Libby (Liba) TANNENHAUS,
describes how her mother Tima TANNENHAUS and father Mordekhai (Motke) TANNENHAUS died
of typhus during one of many deportations of Jews >from Romania (in this
case, >from Suceava) to Transnistria. The location of their death was a place
called Kazmazah, which my mother recalls to be a very small village. I am unable
to locate any such place and was wondering if anyone has any information on
it. Thanks.

Slutzk #belarus

Judy and Gary Floam <gfloam@...>
 

Thanks to all the people who sent me information about Slutzk, because my
great-uncle was buried in the Slutzker plot at Mt. Zion cemetery. However,
I have since learned that he was not >from Slutzk, but supposedly joined the
Slutzker society because he liked their social life! So much for
genealogical "clues"! Would the Sluktzer records at YIVO be likely to have
any information about where he was from?

Help with towns #ukraine

Kim Formica <kimformica@...>
 

I am trying to narrow down towns on shetlseeker >from jewishgen.org.
Here is what I have:

David Guy born in Podolow, Russia on death cert but lists Kamenitz as
birth place on Naturalization papers.

His wife Lena lists her birth as Elizavetgrad, Russia. They came here
from Hamburg in 1904 into NYC listed as married.
I am not sure how to narrow down which towns come up on the search. Any
suggestions or guidelines?

Thanks,

Kim

Seeking photos of Lugansk and Zolotonasha #ukraine

Dear Fellow Ukraine Researchers ,

I am seeking photos of Lugansk and Zolotonasha to
include in a small booklet I am writing about my BALIN
and FUCHS family that lived in Lugansk and Zolotonasha
circa 1900. I am especially interested in images of
the country side, or of buildings that existed
pre-1910. If you have any photos that you could
share, I would be most grateful. I would of course
include a photo credit, and copyright notice. If you
wish, I would also send you a copy of the final
booklet.

Many thanks,

Lodz and Warsaw ghetto - drama documentaries on BBC Radio 4 #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

For those of us who had relatives who lived/died in
the Lodz ghetto, this Friday's drama documentary, "The
Conversation" on BBC Radio 4 should be of particular
interest and poignancy.

"The Conversation" is a dramatic reconstruction of a
conversation between Trevor FRIEDMAN whose father was
a Jewish slave labourer in the War and Roman HALTER,
who had shared the same experience.

It is based on tape-recorded interviews in the form of
a "question and answer" dialogue with HALTER, a
survivor and Trevor, the son of a survivor, whose
father arrived in Britain in 1945 aged 20 and never
told him anything of his horrendous youthful
experiences. It was 24 years after his father's death
that Trevor finally knew the facts.

You can listen to it on "BBC Listen Again" till the
coming Friday - it is informative and horrific.
Stutthof conditions are also discussed as are
Mengele's sadistic selection processes - all in a
matter-of-fact calm manner.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/progs/listenagain.shtml

Go to Afternoon Play (45 min)
Broadcast on Radio 4 - Fri 30 Jun - 14:15

The drama documentary I am just listening - "Dr
Korczak's Example" about the orphanage in the Warsaw
ghetto is also well-worth listening to: read about Dr
KORCZAK here:

http://korczak.com/Biography/kap-0.htm
http://korczak.com/Biography/kap-1who.htm

Unfortunately, it will bring tears to your eyes
- especially the last ten minutes describing the
liquidation of the orphanage and the transportation of
he children to Treblinka.

Dr KORCZAK's legacy to world at large is the the
United Nation's "Rights of the Child".

Go the the Saturday Play - on Radio 4 "Listen
again." You have one week to listen to it.
