Re: Ancestor - Drozdiasz #poland

Naidia Woolf <rnwoolf@...>
 

I just came across the name Mosze DROZDZIARZ who was born in Gur, Poland in
1885 to Yaakov & Bluma DROZDZIARZ. I found his name (and particulars)
while searching the Central Database of Shoah Victims' Name on the Yad
Vashem database. Mosze perished in the Shoah.

I'm wondering whether Mosze was related to my maternal grandparents,
Israel and Sarah Rachel (nee Safirstein) ROSE, formerly DROZDIASZ (also
RAUS). Israel and his wife (and 2 young daughters), were >from Karczew,
Poland. The family emigrated to England circa 1900. I'm particularly
interested in knowing whether any of the DROZDIASZ family >from Poland
survived the Holocaust. (Please note that the family name is already
registered in Family Finder.)

Re: "Oreh".. It's Orhei - city and a 'raion' (county/district) #general

Marilyn,
It is Orhei, both a city and the name of a county-type region in Moldova
Bessarabia). Do a web search using Orhei spelling and you'll find lot's
including Jewishgen Shetl-links. Here's some info below this note, and see
next-to-last paragraph for Jewish info. FYI, there is also a nearby town Orhei
Vechi ("Old Orhei") which has an ancient monastery built into a mountain and is
the source of many legends and history of ancient Moldova back to the
Daco-Roman era.

Orhei
County Orhei County
Status County capital
Population (2004) 45 000
Geographical coordinates 47N 28E

Orhei (population 45,000) is a town and an administrative region of Moldova. It
is located at 47N 28E, in the centre of the country. Prior to 2003 Orhei was a
Jude, a large administrative region, but the country was divided further in
Raion, or districts.

Most people speak Romanian and Russian. There is one school that is taught in
Russian.

The "St. Dumitru" Church build by Vasile Lupu is located in this town.
Orhei is approximately 50 kilometers north of the capital, Orhei gets its name
from Orhei Vechi, an active monastery near the village of Ivancea.
Its name is derived >from Old Hungarian Varhely (pronounced /wor.hey/), meaning
"fortress", dating >from the 9th century, when the Hungarians lived in Etelk
before settling in the Pannonian Plain, in today's Hungary.

Orhei was home to many Jews prior to WWII, and has a large Jewish cemetery.
There is only one active synagogue left in the community. The main churches
are Russian Orthodox. Also in the area are Baptist, a Seventh-day Adventist
Church, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and Jehovah Witnesses.

The community has a sport school by the lake, and 9 other secondary schools in
the town. There are four restaurants in the town, including a pizzeria.

The fate of Eva Dag #lodz #poland

meretz
 

Dear fellow researchers,
For years have I been searching information about the final fate of my
grandmother, who was incarcerated in ghetto Lodz (please see details below).
I believe I contacted most potential sources and checked all available
lists, to no avail. Still, I would be very grateful for any additional lead
or information. Recently I have been informed by the Prague Jewish community
of an organization called "Union of Lodz Prisoners",who may have some
information. Does anybody know how this organization could be connected?

*Eva DAG/ova* was deported >from Prague to ghetto Lodz (Litzmannstadt) on 3
November 1941 with transport E. Her address in Lodz was Rembrandtstrasse 10,
probably a "Wohngemeinschaft" with other Prague deportees of her transport.
My grandmother was born 24 September 1873 in Krakow, as *Eva SCHLANG*. She
spent most of her life in Ostrava, Czechoslovakia, where she married and was
known as *Eva HORNUNG/ova*.

The ghetto address is the last information we have about her. She did not
survive. The questions we have been searching answers for, are: Did *Eva
Dag* die in Lodz a "natural" death? Was she killed in Lodz? Was she sent to
die in Auschwitz or Chelmno? When did she die?
Thanks and best regards,
Uriel Meretz, Israel

Matthias Walter LEVY - Hamburg to UK or USA? #germany

Justin Levy <levyduffy@...>
 

Dear GerSIGers,
I would appreciate some help in finding Matthias Walter LEVY who was born in
Hamburg on 23 Nov 1879.

His registration card (Meldekarte) records that he emigrated to London in November
1899. However, he was not recorded in the 1901 British census, and I can find no
death record.

By 1907 a warrant had been issued for his arrest. I suspect this was because he
had evaded military service which he was due to start in January 1900.

Would someone please be able to do a quick search for him
in the early US censuses? He had relatives in New York. Many thanks,

Justin Levy, Dublin, Ireland (levyduffy@eircom.net)

Announcing the Obermayer German Jewish History Awards for 2007 #germany

Arthur Obermayer <obermayer@...>
 

The German-Jewish Community History Council, GerSIG and the Berlin
Parliament are pleased to announce their Call for Nominations for the
annual Obermayer German Jewish History Awards to be given to non-Jewish
Germans who have made extraordinary contributions to preserving vestiges
of former Jewish life in their local communities, including historical
records, cultural material, cemeteries and synagogues.

Thousands of Germans have carried out such activities as volunteers
because they feel it is the right thing to do. The preservation of Jewish material
is one of the few ways in which they can respond constructively to their
country's horrible past.

We, as Jewish genealogists, have been the recipients of their good work.
This award provides Jews throughout the world with the opportunity to recognize
and honor German individuals who, in many cases, have devoted their lifetimes
to such important endeavors.

****The deadline for submission of nominations is September 20, 2006.****

Many of you previously submitted worthy nominations. Those nominees who
have already received Certificates of Commendation are prime candidates
for this year's awards, and will only require updating of the submissions.

This will be the seventh year for such awards, which will be given in
January 2007. Each awardee and their spouse will be invited on an all
expenses paid trip to Berlin to receive the award at the elegant Plenary
Chamber of the Abgeordnetenhaus, the home of the Berlin Parliament. The
honorees will receive a framed certificate and an honorarium to be used
for the furtherance of their work. Awardees' contributions will be described
to attendees and to the local, national and international news media.

These awards have in the past received extensive coverage in American
newspapers, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Miami
Herald, and the Boston Globe. It has also received coverage by the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the Associated Press, and a great many German
daily and weekly newspapers, as well as specific articles in American
Jewish weeklies, as well as numerous overseas newspapers, such as
Ha'aretz and the Jerusalem Post.

If you know someone who may be appropriate for nomination, further
information -- including the Call for Nominations and profiles of
previous award winners and the jury -- can be obtained at:

http://www.obermayer.us/award

You may obtain a hard copy of the Call for Nominations by sending an email to:

Kiddush goblet inscription needs translating from Hebrew to #general

Beverley Davis
 

Sally Goodman posted a beautifully clear Hebrew inscription on a
family Kiddush becher and asked for a translation.

It would seem that her great-great-grandfather, the Rabbi and
Scholar, Head of the Rabbinical Court of Rekitza, was given this cup
for his 75th birthday by his "sons and daughters and their wives and
husbands" on 5 Shevat 5642, i.e. 25 January 1882. He was therefore
born on 5 Shevat 5567, i.e. 14 January 1807.
