I have visited Vienna a number of times to find out information about my
parents and family who lived there before and during the War. I was able to
make contact with Frau H. Weiss, who was very helpful. Her e-mail is :
h.weiss@... Through her efforts I was able to find the cemetery
(Zentralfriedhiof) where my grandfather is buried. Hope this helps.

My brother-in-law will be visiting the cemetery at Modling bei Wien, once a
small town near Vienna, but now, we suspect, simply a suburb of Vienna.
Thanks to Celia Male's assistance, we have located the graves of his and my
wife's great-grandparents via the cemetery records, and he wishes to visit
the graves. I would appreciate it if anyone knows whether the cemetery is
locked, and if so, how does one obtain permission to enter? Is there a
contact organization or person in Vienna, as in several German cities, for
former residents, for example, to assist them during their visit, who could
help with this?

Thanks

1938 Vienna Jewish Property Declarations List #austria-czech

Ed Zwieback <ezwieback@...>
 

As I understand it, in 1938, all Vienna Jewish residents with assets
greater than 5,000 Reichmark ( equivalent to about $25,000 US today) were
required to declare their property. The list of "Property Declarations" has
been available on the web at http://www.avotaynu.com/HolocaustList/a2.htm
for many years; see Randy's e-mail (excerpt) included below. This list
includes just the name and birth date. Maybe because of the Asset-Level
requirement, not all Vienna Jews are listed. My uncle, Heinrich ZWIEBACK,
resident of Vienna since 1928 and deported to Riga in 1942, is not on this
list. More info about this subject is at
http://www.jewishgen.org/austriaczech/ausguide.htm#Staatsarchiv .

I have just received what appears to be the same list in a single Excel
spreadsheet file (.xls format) and have made it available for down loading
to your PC, at my web space at http://ezwieback.com/1938viennaprop.xls
. The file size is about 6 MB, and the Full list is in Table 1 (49,122
names). There are 5 columns; Surname, Given name, Birth date (YYYYMMDD),
File No., KTN (?), and Depository.

There is a database of about 50,000 names and birthdates of individuals who
filled out property declarations required by the Nazis after the Anschluss
in March 1938. This list is now mostly available on the internet at

Questions on Jewish Categories & Family Relations #general

Alan Weiser <alanboy@...>
 

Recently a gentleman with the same surname as mine inquired of me
whether I was a Cohen, Levy, or Israel. When I replied I was an
Israel, he responded there would be no family relationship because he
was a Levy.

Questions
1. Is there a proper term or phrase related to Cohen, Levy and
Israel, which I call categories? I wish to do an Internet search on
the subject.
2. Is it a fact that if one family is say a Levy and the other is
an Israel that there could be no relationship between these two
families?
3. I have been told that females do not have an assigned category.
That is, a category is passed >from fathers to sons only. Is that
true?
4. If females do not have an assigned category then sons of Jewish
marriages always have the category of the father even if the mother
came >from a Cohen family. Is that true?
5. If a Jewish man was never told his category, what category can
he use if any?
6. Assuming these categories were developed *after* the creation of
man, how were they originally assigned?
7. Are there any records in which the person's category might be
found? Birth, marriage, death, synagogue membership, e.g.?

veterans of the Red Army were not even Soviet citizens before 1941,
much less Russians. I know one heroic veteran who had been a young
man in Eastern Poland, formerly Austria-Hungary, fled east, and became an
engineer in the Red Army, building defences in Stalingrad.
In the late 80's and early 90's I lived in the Russian Jewish
immigrant neighborhood in Los Angeles, and as a Russian speaker
I was privileged to be able to hang out with the "boievye starichki"
--the old battle veterans--hear their stories and drink vodka with
them at kiddish in the Russian shul.
