A list of victims of the Homel (Gomel) pogrom of 1906 #belarus

Naomi Fatouros
 

Genealogists often plaintively ask "Is there a list
somewhere" of this or that, so I wish to share the
following information which I've paraphrased from
James Boylan's "Revolutionary LIves: Anna Strunsky and
William English Walling," University of Massachusetts
Press, 1998.

In 1906, the American Anna Strunsky, a socialist
and aspiring novelist, who was then in St. Petersburg,
learned of the February slaughter of Jews in Homel
(Gomel). Because Anna spoke Yiddish, she set out for
Homel where she began to find out about the massacre,
spending many hours interviewing the sources a local
newspaper had gathered for her. She also visited a
hospital more than once, where she interviewed
victims, and in a snowstorm she was driven to "The
Hole," which was a slum. She obtained prints showing
a row of more than a dozen corpses and she spoke to a
general who stated that the Jews had burned the city
to get fire insurance, and if it hadn't been "for the
Cossacks and police, not a house would have been left
standing in the city."

For seven years thereafter, she wasn't able to get
any newspaper or periodical to publish the article she
wrote on the pogrom, until at last, the New York
Section of the Council of Jewish Women, agreed to
publish it in the form of a "humble pamphlet."

It seems that the previously scorned pamphlet
contains the victims' names and dates of their deaths
and injuries.

I've been thinking that some enterprising and eager
Jewishgenner with family ties to Homel (Gomel) might
want find out whether the pamphlet was preserved
somewhere and to try to obtain a copy which could be
published under Jewishgen's auspices.

Boylan's book contains a group photograph of Gomel
victims and relatives. This photograph was found among
Anna Strunsky Walling's papers at the Henry H.
Huntington Library and Art Gallery. (in California).
Perhaps a copy of the Council's pamphlet exists among
her papers there. Or maybe YIVO has a copy. Or a copy
might be obtained >from the present New York Section
of the Council of Jewish Women, which has a website
with a button for contacting it...

Rumanian Archives #hungary

peter bakos <pgbakos@...>
 

Having had the good fortune to have had a friend who is a Rumanian speaker
and experienced with dealing with Rumanian bureaucracies I was able to visit
and access archives in Timisoara and Arad. To my experience the limitation
on access is 100 years, so that records up to 1906 are available at this
time.

who remained in Europe will always be remembered by his descendants.

Levoča Jewish Cemetery #hungary

My wife and I are just back >from a long stay in Levoča, Slovakia. The
town had a long Jewish tradition which was ended by the Shoah (nearly
1,000 local inhabitants were transported). The Jewish cemetery however
survives although it is completely overgrown. During our visit we had
discussions with the Mayor and with Mr. Turcan of the Association of
Slovak Jewish Communities, as well as with a local activist, Mr. Liptak
(who has published an excellent book on the Jews of Kezmarok), and we
are hopeful of getting restoration under way - of course it will take
work, and money! There survives a chart of the cemetery, dating >from
before the War, with names attached to many of the plots, and I have a
photocopy of this and have also transcribed a list of the names. anyone
interested in this, and/or in assisting the restoration of the cemetery,
is welcome to contact me.
