Windows in Time: Europe and the Middle East in 1913 #general

Steven Lasky <steve725@...>
 

Greetings all,

In 1913, Shmuel Leib Nathanson, at the time living with his family in
Montreal, Canada, having emigrated >from Piatra Neamt, Romania twelve years
earlier, decided to make an important voyage with his wife and second son
Henry to Europe and the Middle East. Henry Nathanson was a prolific
photographer, as witnessed by the great number of photos he took, not only
during this summer-long trip, but all throughout the years. Always ahead of
his time, he was delighted with any new invention and certainly the still
camera was no exception.The Museum of Family History is pleased to present
to you its latest exhibition entitled "Windows in Time," a photographic
display of more than one-hundred black-and-white photographs taken by Henry
Nathanson in the summer of 1913 during his travels. You will no doubt find
this exhibition interesting, as it is an intriguing look back on the Europe
and Middle East of more than ninety years ago--downtown London, Paris'
Louvre Museum, the Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna, the Damascus Gate in
Jerusalem and the Sphinx of Giza are just some of the historic sites that
you will enjoy seeing. Also visit Tel Aviv, Petah Tikvah, Rosh Pinah and
Rishon le Zion, the native bazaars in Cairo and the boats sailing along the
Bosphorus Strait in Constantinopole. Experience family life in the Romanian
town of Piatra Neamt and see women dressed in traditional gypsy garb.
I do hope that you will take the time to visit the "Windows in Time"
exhibition, and find it as fascinating as I have. The direct link to the
exhibition is

New Pictures on Viewmate #general

Howard Kaufman <howardk686@...>
 

I have posted 2 pictures on Viewmate, numbers 7809 and
7810 which are the front and back of a 1931 graduating
class picture >from the Vitbesk province, around the
shtetl of Ushachi, near Lepel. The Viewmate link is below.

I would appreciate any help in translating the back of
the card, and also in identifying the pictures on the front.
The last name and first initial, in Russian, is printed
below each picture. I know the bottom middle picture is
of a Furman, daughter of my maternal grandmother’s
brother Zalmon Furman who was also the photographer.

Thank you,

A photo of the tombstone of Moses David Ha'Levi JACHIMOWICZ has been
uploaded to ViewMate. It is Viewmate number 7813 and the direct path to
view the image is
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7813

A full translation is requested, especially the name of Moses David's father
and the date of death. Please send your replies directly to me, not to the
list. The file will be available for viewing for 7 days after which time it
will be found in the ViewMate archives.

This photo was received through the JGS of Ottawa, Canada, as part of their
project to photograph all headstones in order to document the burials in the
cemetery in Czernivtsi, Ukraine, formerly Czernowitz, Bukowina. I thank
them for their project and for making this photograph available to me.

Thanks also to Bruce Reisch who is overseeing the coordination of the burial
register and images for inclusion in JOWBR.

Danzigers at the Leipzig Fairs, 1675-1764 #danzig #gdansk #germany #poland

Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I am pleased to announce a new item in the Articles section of our website,
a list of Jews >from Danzig who attended the Leipzig trade fairs during
1675-1764. This information comes >from Dr. Max Freudenthal's "Leipziger
messgaeste: die juedischen besucher der Leipziger messen in den jahren 1675
bis 1764." Frankfurt am Main: J. Kauffmann, 1928.

If you have further information about any of the people listed, please let
us know. Hopefully, surviving Danzig records will eventually enable us to
identify descendants of these people, most of whom did not use surnames at
the time (however, there is a HEILBRUNNER and a MAINZ/MENZ). The earliest
date a Danzig Jew visited, according to this information, is 1687.

Best regards,

there are so many towns with the same name, and I believe I know which one
my grandparents came from.

Ruth Gay, author of the beautiful and informative "The Jews of Germany," has
died in New York at the age of 83. Her obituary was featured in the New
York Times on May 11, 2006, at:

http://www.nytimes.com/pages/obituaries/index.html?8qa

Her book on German Jewry should be in the library of everyone with an
interest on German Jewish life between the fall of Jerusalem in 70 C.E. and the
rise of Hitler in the 1930s.

new Gedenkbuch? #germany

Renee Steinig <rsteinig@...>
 

The JTA Daily Briefing (jta.org) reported yesterday, May 10, that Germany
just published "a new list of its citizens who were killed in the
Holocaust." According to JTA, the new register "updates the first edition,
from 1986, which listed only victims >from the former West Germany. The new
version includes all of Germany and parts of modern Poland, and contains
150,000 names."

This new publication certainly sounds like the long awaited update of the
Gedenkbuch. Does anyone have additional information on this publication? Renee
