Zoltan Egri #hungary

michael miller <mllm39@...>
 

Does anyone have any information on the fate of Zoltan Egri: born in
Eger, Hungary in 1894; student at Brno's German Technical School,
1920-1923; architect in Brno at least until 1936, when he designed the
Jewish Museum in Nikolsburg/Mikulov. I'm trying to figure out whether
or not he survived the Holocaust. Any information will be
appreciated.
Thank you,
Michael Miller
Budapest, Hungary


Minor update to Carpathian site #hungary

Karin Wandrei <kwandrei@...>
 

I made a few small additions to my site on my mother's shtetl in the
Carpathians, which also has a lot of other materials on Jewish life there.

Everything is marked with a "New" button.

The site can be accessed at

Thank you to those who replied. I have double checked the envellope and not
only was the name written by the sender, but it is "franked" on the back of
the envellope (which had been opened "by examiner 351")(so it was probably
sent during WW2) and it is PRINTED quite clearly as SILMALA, LATVIA. (sorry,

Lance Ackerfeld and his family #yizkorbooks

Dear Yizkor Book Friends,

Most of our readers know how vital Lance is to the Yizkor Book
Project. He coordinates permissions >from landsmanschaftn and
coordinates the html process and getting your translations online at
amazing speed.

However, you may not know that Lance and his family live on a kibbutz
in northern Israel, near the Lebanese border. Our last word was that
Lance does not have Internet access now and it may take a few days to
get that fixed. Therefore, nothing will be processed and put online
until Lance's Internet situation is resolved.

But his personal situation is more serious. Lance's kibbutz is
removing all the children to another kibbutz in the south of Israel.
His son will be in that group. His older daughter is a soldier but is
at a "safe" base. His younger daughter will remain at home with
Lance and his wife. The kibbutz members have to sleep in a shelter,
which Lance told me a few days ago has no running water and is hot.

I know that you join us in our hopes for peace and for the safety of
Lance and his family. One way to show your appreciation for all of
Lance's work is to honor him at JewishGen's Wall of Honor at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Honors0.html.

Hallo JewishGenners

I recently found out that my Great Grandmother, Annie KLAPMAN/KLOPMAN MARCUS
came >from a place called Silmala, in Latvia. I found this name franked on
the back on an envellope addressed to her during the WW2 years, and two
Latvian Stamps on the front of the envellope. Does anyone know how I can
find out where Silmala is, and does anyone on JewishGen have any connection
to a KLAPMAN/KLOPMAN familily >from Latvia. If so, I would be interested to
hear >from you.
