Re: My Eastern European Trip #general

Vivian Kahn
 

Dear Sue,

My suggestion is to embark on your trip with the objective of learning as much
as you can about the life and times of the places where your families
lived and realize that it may be difficult to find specific locations. That's
what I did last summer when I went on my own family-finding expedition to Hungary
and Slovakia.

I suspect that my father went through Budapest's Keleti Station in January 1921
when he left Michalovce, Slovakia, never to return. My great-
grandparents remained behind and continued to live on Andrassy utca in
Michalovce. This street was obliterated after WWII and all that remains are
Soviet-era apartment blocks but many similar old
buildings remain in nearby areas where most of the community's Jewish population
once lived and many of the turn-of the-century buildings along Michalovce's main
street remain providing a glimpse of what the city once looked like.

I also walked the streets of Sobrance where the family lived in the
late 19th century and saw the fields that my great-grandfathers farmed in what
is now eastern Slovakia. Doesn't look like much has changed in this
agricultural area where storks still walk through the fields and fly home to
nests on poles in older residential neighborhoods.
In an amazing case of "bashert" I stopped and took pictures of a
house in Sobrance where a survivor I know once lived and the shops on the
Sobrance main street that were once owned by his parents and uncles. The apparent
coincidence seems amazing but, in fact,
may not be all that astounding given the small population in places like this.

Realizing that it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to find the
buildings where my relatives once lived, I decided to just soak up the
environment in these places--buildings, parks, the natural enviornment, arts,
music, museums, nature, and, of course, food. Walking
the streets of Budapest, Kosice, Miskolc, Michalovce, Sobrance and
Bratislava in August 2005 it is very hard, but also very important, to try and
evoke mental images of the Jewish communities that once existed in these places
but you can find clues. If you can find the graves of your
relatives that will be an important part of your trip. My father never returned
to Hungary and, as far as my know, neither did any of his siblings so I am the
only immediate family member who has visited the graves of my grandfather and
great-grandparents in Michalovce. That's the kind of memory that will always
remain.

Hope that your trip is as memorable as mine was,

Vivian Kah, Oakland, CA

I am leaving in a few days for a lower Danube River cruise which will take me
to many interesting places, including Romania/ Bucharest. While in Romania I
have hired a driver/translator for a day. Hope to get to Podu Turcului,where
I believe my father ( Yankel HAIMOVITZ) was born. I will be in the
following places- Vienna,, Budapest, Belgrade, towns in Hungary,
Serbia-Montenegro, Slovakia and Czech Republic. I have done some research
and will definitely get to the Doheny Street Synagogue in Budapest, the
Stadttempel in Vienna and the synagogue in Bucharest. Does anyone have any
other places of Jewish significance that I should attempt to visit in these
locations? Of course, while I am in Bucharest, I will try to start to learn
more about my father and his family. I also would like to contact a lady
who wrote in who lives in Bucharest. Her name is Claudia Ionita.
If you read this Claudia, please write me personally @ casakeller@comcast.net .
I am leaving on July 4.

$.50/page is the price for making Xerox copies on their machine when you are

Seeking photos of Orsha and Shklov #belarus

Dear Fellow Belarus Researchers ,

I am seeking photos of Orsha and Shklove to include in
a small booklet I am writing about my KALKIN and
KIRSON family that lived in Orsha, and my LAVKER
family that lived in Shklov circa 1910. 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,

Kalman Naves at H-SIG Luncheon #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Dear Friends,

I am absolutely thrilled to announce that Elaine Kalman Naves will be
our guest speaker at the Hungarian SIG Luncheon in NYC during the
IAJGS conference. I discovered Elaine's book Journey to Vaja:
Reconstructing the World of a Hungarian-Jewish Family several years
ago and continue to believe that it is one of the best accounts
available of Hungarian Jewish family life and the history of
Hungarian Jews. It is not only a wonderful family story but also a
well-researched account of the socio-economic and historical
conditions and events that shaped the Hungarian Jewish experience.

Elaine will talk about her life-changing journey into her family's
past to write Journey to Vaja and will speak about the experience of
tracing her family's history back to the 18th Century as both a feat
of genealogical research and a study of character across the
generations. We all talk about how important it is to record more
than names, dates, and places. Elaine's superb work exemplifies this
approach to family research.

Elaine was born in Hungary and grew up in Budapest, London, and
Montreal. She was for many years a literary columnist for the
Montreal Gazette, and is the author of five books and more than 400
articles published in a variety of periodicals. Elaine has been the
recipient of numerous literary prizes including the prestigious
Canadian Literary Award in 1998. Her memoir Journey to Vaja:
Reconstructing the World of a Hungarian-Jewish Family was the winner
of the 1998 Elie Wiesel Prize for Holocaust Literature and has been
made into a documentary film called Paradise Lost. We're hoping to
show excerpts >from the film to illustrate her presentation. Plans
are underway to also include the film among the showings at the
conference film festival.

Elaine's most recent book, Shoshanna's Story: A Mother, A Daughter,
and the Shadows of History, won the 2003 Mavis Gallant Prize and a
2005 Canadian Jewish Book Award. It has just been published in the
United States by University of Nebraska Press.

If you haven't yet registered for the H-SIG luncheon there's still
time to do so. This promises to be one of our most memorable
programs ever. Don't miss it!

Hungarian Research Computer Workshop #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

Dear Ted and All,

It's my understanding that you can register for the Hungarian
research computer workshop on Sunday when you pick up your conference
registration. Appears that's there's no pre-registration for these
sessions. All I can suggest at this point is to get to registration
as early as possible.

I've been told that registration will be limited by the fact that
they have 25 computers available for each workshop. Depending on the
size of the room, they might be able to accommodate folks who just
audit the session but don't have access to one of the 25 computers.
We will also need one or two folks with good computer skills to serve
as monitors. They won't have to pay and won't have access to a
computer but have to walk around and help those who need assistance
with the available PCs. I'm a Mac user myself but expect that the
computers will all be operating on MS platform.

Please contact me off-list if you think you have the skills to serve
as a monitor and are interested in doing so.
