lodz criminal records #lodz #poland

Susan Monty <susan@...>
 

Family lore states that my great grandfather,Simcha Bunim Goldwasser was a
bootmaker in the old town of Lodz. He was murdered in his shop by assassins
in a case of mistaken identity. they were seeking to kill his assistant who
was at lunch. They turned up at the funeral, presumably still seeking their
man, and were arrested. This must have occurred between 1900 and 1913. Is it
possible that any criminal or press records might exist? How would I begin
to investigate this. Many thanks.

I just discovered this online book:
Matatias Carp: The Holocaust Revealed
http://www.logon.org/_domain/holocaustrevealed.org/Romania/Matatias/Matatias.htm
Apologies, if everyone else on the list has read it
already. I still decided to point it out to those who
by chance may not have done so just yet.

Searching for information on Mauryc SOKOLOWER #poland

Avraham (Avi) Ayalon <ayalonav@...>
 

Dear list members,

Mauryc SOKOLOWER was a brother (among several brothers and sisters) to
my late grandfather, Abraham SOKOLOWER, who I am named after.

The information about Mauryc is partial: he probably was born in
Zielun/Poland as all his siblings were (but there were no hits for a
search under his name in JRI-Poland database), moved at unknown time to
Danzig, graduated >from Engineering department in Gdansk University
~1930, married to his wife which I do not remember her name, but know
that she was a GOLDBERG, daughter of Yechezkel, and they had at least
one known child: a son named Alexander.

Mauryc was a high rank officer, a General, in the Red Army and was even
granted several Medals and Orders among them the Hero of the Soviet
Union. At a certain time he relocated with his family in Tallinn,
Estonia. However he was not listed in the book: Jewish Generals in the
Armed Forces of the Soviet Union (published in Hebrew, written by
General, Prof. Svardlov).

Mauryc disappeared/executed in what was known as "Stalin Clearances".

Mauryc's wife, son and grandson made Aliyah to Israel in the 1970's.
They settled in Arad, the old woman died, the father and his son later
moved to Jerusalem and about 10 years ago Alexander left to the USA. We
lost contact with them.

That sums more or less the information I can recall about Mauryc
SOKOLOWER.

I am searching for further pieces of information about him or his son,
Alexander.

Any help would very much be appreciated.

Thank you for your attention.

Seek Meyer GATTMAN(N)- Most likely b. ca. 1820 in Schwanfeld, Bavaria #germany

Judith Berlowitz <judigenie@...>
 

Dear Ger-Siggers,
After a multi-year hiatus, I've renewed my search for
my ggrandfather, Meyer GATTMAN(N). Most likely born
around 1820 in Schwanfeld, Bavaria, Meyer and his
wife, Regina Gutmann Schmalbach, moved to Budapest,
probably around 1847, were married there around 1850,
and their 4 children, Anna, Julius, Clara, and
Heinrich (my grandfather),were born there. I have no
information for Anna, but the rest of them came to the
US in 1881. Meyer reportedly returned to Budapest, where he died.

This is the information I am seeking:
Who were Meyer's parents? There is a reported
brother, Felix. There are many other Gattmanns in
Schwanfeld, but I find no record of Meyer (Meier, Mejer, etc.)

I will be grateful for any clues.

Fw: FHL Film 1184446 for Pyritz and SPANDOW #germany

Jan Bousse <janbousse@...>
 

Some of you will remember that last december (8 Dec. 2005) I enquired about
finding data in Pyritz, specifically on a SPANDOW marriage and more in particular
on Rebecca SPANDOW. One source was given as the film 1184446, where Items 7-8
deal with Pyritz. I consulted that film a week ago and I thought it might be
useful for the list to hear what I encountered.

Item 7 is the Einwohnerliste ca. 18-?. The indication of the year is of
course puzzling. I saw there that this item was indicated as "unbrauchbar".
It quickly appeared why. Large parts are over-exposed and entirely blank,
others are in Hebrew, some parts in German but then the sequence in the film
is often reversed, making reading quite difficult. And the exact date of the
list did not appear clearly.

Item 8 is indeed a list of persons, apparently taken in 1853, although I
have not seen that date clearly mentioned, perhaps it escaped me. The list
is clear but rather minimal. I was fortunate to find a person who may be the
one I am looking for:

42 Witwe Spandau 63
Tochter Minna 25

The person I am trying to identify would have been born in 1788, the age is
close enough. Unfortunately, there is no initial or first name, no maiden
name either. I had been given some time before >from Lars Menk the mention in
the Berliner Adresb├╝cher 1825-1900 of:

R. SPANDOW geb. LEWIN, 1872-73; Rentiere; Fennstr. 1b. Pt.

I would be very interested to find who R. Spandow is and if she correponds
to the Witwe Spandau >from Pyritz. I asked Weissensee cemetery if she is
buried there, they said she isn't. I also enquired for details at the
Centrum Judaicum in Berlin, waiting for an answer >from them. Meanwhile I am
wondering if there is a way to find the death of R SPANDOW geb. LEWIN. I
understand that civil records were instituted in Prussia in 1874. Is there a
chance to find that death if it occurred in or after 1874? Can someone point
me to the Bezirk for Rennstrasse?

Another road I would like to follow is the daughter Minna, born around 1828,
possibly in Pyritz. Any idea how I could do that? The difficulty would be to
know if she married, when, where, and where she died. Sounds hopeless.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
