Deportations from Breslau Wroclav LIEBERMANN, Katz #germany

David Lewin <davidlewin@...>
 

I am trying to establish whether two small children may have survived World War 2.
Are there any population lists of Jews in Breslau at the start of World War 2?
I know very little - I know only that:

Gabriele Ruth LIEBERMANN, born 2 Jun 1934 in Breslau and

Denny LIEBERMANN, born 30 Sep 1939 in Dresden

were staying with their grandparents in Breslau.
I do not know on which side of their parentage LIEBERMANN or KATZ
these grandparents were.
I also do not know the personal names of the grandparents.
Do you have any knowledge of lists - or where else I might ask? Thank you

Moritz HEFTER from Bucharest #general

Pmarhef@...
 

I am trying to trace the travels of my grandfather, Moritz HEFTER, >from his
birth in Bucharest, Romania on 30 Nov 1855, across Germany (probably
including Bavaria) to (probably) Hamburg, thence to New York and his marriage
in NY. His father was Jacob Hefter, b Romania; his mother, Rachel BROWN, b
Romania. Moritz had a brother, Leonard, b Bucharest, 24 April 1857. This
family was Jewish and practiced Judaism all their lives.
I have found a Moritz Hefter on the ship's passenger list of the Westphalia
arriving in NY on 30 May 1871. The name and the age given, 15, fit my
grandfather but I would prefer stronger evidence that this was indeed he. No
other Hefter appears on that passenger list. I can find no other evidence that
he re-crossed the ocean eastbound and then came again to NY.
Moritz married Ottonie von KOEPPEL in NY in a civil ceremony on 7 Nov 1883.
BUT, Ottonie had 3 daughters born in Germany in 1877, 1880 and 1881. Mother
and the 3 daughters came to NY, arriving on the Bohemia, 23 Oct 1882. The four
used "KOPPEL" as their surname. No father or husband is on the passenger
list. Ottonie is my grandmother. I have always assumed that Moritz was the
father of the 3 girls but I am now not so sure. I have been searching in Bavaria
for evidence of their births but cannot find them. Ottonie was born in
Oberaudorf, Bavaria and I think lived their until her departure for NY via
Hamburg. The troublesome link is that the von Koeppels were Catholics. I have
searched the microfilm showing the births of all Ottonie's siblings showing their
births and baptisms in Oberaudorf. I have sent inquiries to some authorities in
Bavaria, namely, stadesamt@oberaudorf.de and standesamt.statdt@augsburg.de
and all have reported they could not find a mother named Ottonie von Koeppel or
the 3 daughters, Mary, Emily and Lucy. I know the birth dates of the girls
but would like to know where they were born and their father's name.
Moritz used that name on his marriage certificate to Ottonie but began using
"Morris" when his and Ottonie's first son was born in 1884. Morris and his
brother, Leonard, were in the embroidery business in lower Manhattan >from at
least the early 1880s until Morris' death in 1917. Leonard, my great uncle,
said on his application for citizenship that he arrived in NY on 6 April 1881.
I find only one ship arriving in NY on that date and Leonard is not on the
passenger list. I can find no evidence that Jacob & Rachel came to the New
World nor that they had other children.

Resource for German Military Information #germany

Geoff Kaiser <geoff_kaiser@...>
 

Dear Researchers,
I have recently found a resource for enquiries related to German Military
information. My grandfather fought in WW1 in a certain german Regiment.
The resource (see below) was able to tell me where and when this Regiment
fought in WW1 which I was then able to relate to a war injury record I had
previously obtained.

I wrote in English and had a reply in English with in 2 weeks. I had in
fact forgotten all about the enquiry, so it came as a terrific surprise.
Below are the details:

Hasidim among your ancestors? #general

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

If you've found Hasidim among your ancestors, how much do you know about
their practices?
Why did Polish Jews turn to Hasidim, and how did these ideas sweep like
wildfire through Jewish society?

Glenn Dynner's book , "Men of Silk " is an in-depth exploration of this
revolutionary impact on Polish Jewry in the 19th century. He draws on
newly-discovered Polish archival sources and Hasidic texts to describe
the leaders as successful populists who deftly combined mysticism with a
pragmatic approach to politics and business. Dynner's work also looks at
the full range of Hasidic followers, >from the downtrodden of
the shtetls to the well-to-do of Warsaw.

This 396 page book can provide a helpful context for your family's own
story. If you're exploring the genealogy of 19th-century Poland, you'll
find it useful, and it will be especially interesting if your family has
Hasidic predecessors. Meticulously researched, it includes sources and
notes for anyone who wants to investigate further and most importantly,
broaden their knowledge about Hasidim and their influence.

"Men of Silk" (product code OUP201) is available now at $65 plus S&H
from the JewishGenMall. http://www.jewishgenmall.org

Is there a lawyer in the house?

The State Archives is a great place to work. The people are friendly and
helpful.

Regarding the name Kitaichik, I believe that Kitai in Russian is China
and so this would be "Chinaman" or perhaps someone who imported from
China.



Freidman means "man of peace", which is a lovely name.

MAUSNER in Pennsylvania #general

Evelyn Filippi
 

I found an name in the jgft that belonged to a family member . So I
emailed the person who put the name in. I said this person belongs in my
family. He was married to my cousin he was in Aushwitz where he met my cousin
and married and he was a director. She wrote back sorry no I am wrong he
married her cousin was in tresensdadt and was a composer and played
piano. and belonged in her family and that there was 31 million hits in google
on that name etc. So I figured another dead end. But my brain wouldn't let
go. So I wrote her back a few times .Look if he was married once why not
twice......If he was in one concentration camp why not 2. If he could direct
why cant he compose or play a piano. It must be the same person. To make
a long story short she checked it out and emailed me back. It was the same
person. She sent me a picture of him and his second wife. and some other
info about him and the phone no for MAUSNER which was her family name in
PA. Unfortunately I left a few messages, they never relpied so it must be
the wrong person. If someone knows any MAUSNER it might be in my family
thanks to some extremly kind person in here I received a few newspaper
clippings in emails.
