Internment of German Jews on Isle of Man, May 1940 #unitedkingdom

MBernet@...
 

Can anyone guide me to information on the WW2 internment of Jewish refugees
born in Germany or Austria[n Empire!].

My father and many of our relatives and friends >from Tyneside were arrested
on a Sunday morning right after the German invasion of Holland and Belgium.
They were kept in a local army barracks then sent to Huyton Camp near
Liverpool where the food was inadequate.

They were then marched down to the docks between rows of jeering locals who
had been assured that these were Nazi spies and Sturmwaffe agents. >from there
they were shipped to the Isle of Man where, so I have heard, they were put
up in seaside hotels and had much autonomy. Orthodox people were able to stay
together and enjoy home-made kosher food and all religious obligations (My
father was let out early on health grounds; his first act was to organize the
dispatch of shofars and prayer books for the High Holydays.)

There were university-level lectures and courses with scholars and artists
of international rank.

I have been informed that the English genealogy magazine "Family Tree
Magazine" carried a two-part article "The internment of enemy civilians in
wartime Britain" by Tom Wood
in its November and December 1998 issues. Does anyone have a copy of this
article? Can anyone guide me to the text of the article on the web?

A year or two later, The United States interred most of its Japanese
residents. After the war there was an enquiry that resulted in an apology or the
former internees and a symbolic payment of compensation. Was that ever done
for these Jewish refugees in the UK?

Thanks for any information

Does any one know what PA stands for in the Alien/Naturalized column in
the 1910 (or other) U.S. censuses?

New York. He married Rebecca Esther JACKSON. They had seven

Recording of Birth in Belzer Rebbe entourage during WWI #general

Shlomo Katz <SKatz@...>
 

If I am not mistaken, the Belzer Rebbe's sojourn in Hungary during World
War I was spent in Munkatch, which is today not in Hungary but in
Ukraine (Mukachevo).
When the Rebbe returned to Galicia, he did not return to Blez, but first
settled in Oleszyce until about 1925, in my wife's great-grandfather's
house. (His name was Yisrael Vogel. His cousin Shulim Vogel was the
gabbai/secretary of the previous and current Belzer Rebbes) Some 20th
century Oleszyce records are available. What was your relative's name?

mtDNA Hg K1a9 #dna

Steven R. Colson <stevecolson@...>
 

Aside >from the thoughts of the pundits, has anyone considered the
location of origin of the mtDNA Hg K1a9?

My mtDNA is of the K1a9 haplogroup and my oldest known matriarch was
born in Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyy. Other K1a9 genetic cousins tend to
be >from Romania and Poland. I am of the opinion that the K1a9
matriarch originated in Poland and her descendents dispersed along
Carpathian trade routes. This Hg does not show in Western European
Ashkenazim.

Any thoughts?

Recording of Birth in Belzer Rebbe entourage during WWI #general

My father's father was the Shochet to the Belzer Rebbe for some period
of time (as was his father before him, etc.) until he gave it up
supposedly in favor of his brother who was more comfortable
slaughtering animals. i do not know what year this was. I do know that
the Rebbe was in Hungary during WWI at the time of what was my father's
birth. Assuming the Rebbe's Shochet traveled with him, and assuming his
father was still the Shochet, this would mean that my father was born
in Hungary. Would births in this entourage have been recorded with
authorities in Hungary if they were recorded? Would they have waited
till they returned to Galicia? If Hungary, are 20th century Hungarian
records accessible? How?

Thank you.
