Dear Genners, The following description takes me >from the Aufricht family
(my own) to the Broder famil (in-law family). Answers to the questions at the
end are what I am researching.

Bertha AUFRICHT BRODER was born in 1879 in the town of Zablocie ad Zywiec,
the daughter of Henriette Kohn and Samuel, Aufricht and lived at Zamkowa 4
Apartment 522 in Rzeszow (according to a 1910 census), along with her husband
Izydor BRODER, born in 1872 in the town of Bochnia, and her son, Jozef, born
in 1905 in the town of Brody. When Jozef was 3, the family moved to Rzeszow
where they lived at 2 other addresses according to the 1927 census. Bertha/
Batyia died on April 16, 1967, at the age of 88, in Ramat Gan, Tel Aviv, Israel.

Izydor BRODER was born in 1872 in Bochnia, Malopolskie, Poland. His parents
were Benjamin and Breindel. Izydor had a brother, Dr. Leon BRODER, an attorney,
who was married to Lydia Irene SZANCER. They had married in Ostrava
Czechoslovakia >from whence she came. Leon and Lydia had 2 boys, Jan, a noted
chemist who was killed during the war and Artur who survived. Before the war,
Jan and Artur lived in a rented apartment at Basztowa 23 in Krakow (>from a 1932
census). During the war, Artur registered for a Jewish ID card in 1937. After
the war, Artur changed his name to Brodsky and lived at Straszewskiego 24 in
Krakow.

Izydor married Bertha (Batia) AUFRICHT BRODER on March 22, 1904 and they lived
at Smolensk 28 according to the 1932 census record. They had one child, Jozef,
born in 1909. He died at the age of 36 in a Russian gulag. Izydor died in 1947
at the age of 75 in Krakow and is buried in the Jewish cemetery there.

While Bertha (Batja) Broder lived in Israel, she submitted 11 testimonials to
Yad Vashem:

1. Chaim (Heinrich) AUFRICT, b 1972, living in Vienna---my paternal
grandfather, Batja's brother (submitted ???)

2. Dr. Jan Yokhanan BRODER was born in Zablocie, Poland in 1902 to Leib and
Lidia. He was an engineer and married to Zelma (Selma) nee DATZ (SHATZ). Prior
to WWII he lived in Zablocie, Poland. During the war he was in Stanislau.
(Submitted 1.5.1955)

3. Selma (Zelma) BRODER nee SHATZ (DATZ) was born in Krakow, Poland in 1910
to Arie and Aliza. She was a clerk. Prior to WWII she lived in Krakow, Poland.
(Submitted 1.5.1955)

4. Elizabet BRODER was born in Kamionka Strumilowa, Poland in 1903 to Herman
and Freida. She was a housewife and married. Prior to WWII she lived in
Kamionka Strumilowa, Poland. During the war she was in Kamionka StrumiÅ?owa,
Poland. (Submitted 12.5.1957)

5. Lidia BRODER was born in Tarnow, Poland in 1877 to Artur and Sharlota.
She was a housewife and married. Prior to WWII she lived in Krakow, Poland.
(Submitted 22.3.1956)

6. Oskar CYMEND (ZIMAND) was born in Lwow, Poland in 1890. He was a bookeeper
and married to Felitzia nee Broder. Prior to WWII he lived in Kamionka
Strumilowa, Poland. During the war he was in Kamionka Strumilowa, Poland.
(Submitted 12.5.1957)

7. Klements HECHT was born in Hranice, Czechoslovakia in 1908 to Arie and
Ida. Prior to WWII he lived in Czechoslovakia. During the war he was in Hranice,
Czechoslovakia. (Submitted 1.5.1955)

8. Nathan WEINHEBER was born in Alwernia, Poland to Shimon. He was an
engineer and married. Prior to WWII he lived in Vienna, Austria. During the war
he was in Vienna, Austria. (Submitted 29.4.1955)

9. Liza aliza WEINHEBER NEE AUFRIKHT was born in Zablocie, Poland in 1876 to
Shmuel and Ester. She was a housewife and married. Prior to WWII she lived in
Zablocie, Poland. During the war she was in Vienna, Austria. (Submitted 29.4.1955)

10. Alfreda ZIMAND was born to Felitzia nee Broder. She was a child. Prior to
WWII she lived in Kamionka Strumilowa, Poland. (Submitted 1.5.1955)

11. Felicia ZIMAND NEE BRODER was born in Kamionka Strumilowa, Poland in 1904
to Herman and Frida. She was a piano teacher and married. Prior to WWII she
lived in Kamionka StrumiÅ?owa, Poland. (Submitted 1.5.1955).

It seems that Felicia Broder married Oskar Zimand (Cymend) and they had a
daughter Alfreda. Felicia's parents were Herman and Frida Broder. Feliciaâ's
sister was Elizabet Broder who was also married but it is not clear to whom.

Klements Hecht is a total mystery.

I understand how Bertha (Batja) is related to Heinrich Aufricht, Elise Aufricht
Weinheber and Nathan Weinheber. I also understand how Bertha through marriage to
Izydor Broder is related to his brother Leon and Leon's 2 sons Artur and Jan.
However, I cannot understand who Felicia and Elizabet Broder are and who their
parents, Herman and Frida are. If anyone can help unravel this mystery, I would
be very appreciative.

Information on South African Landsmanshaften #belarus

Eli Rabinowitz
 

We are appealing for information, any publications or articles on SOUTH
AFRICAN LANDSMANSHAFTEN (ASSOCIATIONS)
(AKA Sick and Benefit Societies/ Mutual Aid Societies)

In South Africa in the early 1900s in there were many Mutual Aid
Societies/Associations/Landsmanshaften >from mainly Lithuanian towns
including: Aniksht, Birzh, Chelm ( Poland), Dvinsk (Latvia), Keidan,
Kelme, Kovno, Krakinowo, Kroze, Kupishok, Kurland (Latvia), Lutzin,
Malat, Minsk (Belarus), Ponevez, Poswohl, Plungyan, Rakishok, Riga
(Latvia), Shavlan, Shavl, Shater, Tels, Utiyan, Vilna and Zhagar.

To help one another and the new immigrants arriving with virtually
nothing, Landsleit (people >from the same towns or districts) banded
together to form Landsmanshaften (Mutual Aid Societies) that helped the
sick and poor, buried the dead and provided interest free loans to help
members start businesses. They also provided a place where the community
of mainly men 'greeners' could gather and socialise.

David Sandler's next compilation will be SOUTH AFRICAN
LANDSMANSHAFTEN (Jewish Sick and Benefit Societies / Associations of the
early 20th century).=20
While he has published booklets on Keidan and Krakenowo and has booklets
on Ponevez and Malat, we are looking for information and any other
publications of these Landsleit or any others >from South Africa. Also,
we are seeking publications of any Jewish Communities in Johannesburg.

Yizkor Book Project, June 2018 #usa

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

In general, I begin my monthly Yizkor Book Project report with writing
how impressed I am over the achievements we've managed to accomplish over
the past month. This time, however, I leave it to you to decide for
yourself about the scale of achievements we've made in both quantity and
quality in June, and I believe you'll come to the same conclusion as
myself.

Once again, I have the wonderful news to convey to you that a further
Yizkor book translation project is now entirely online. This time it is
the Chorzele, Poland Yizkor book - the "Memorial Book of the Community
of Chorzel" which was coordinated and financially supported by Susan
Huntting. We are truly indebted to her for leading the project through
to its successful completion.

As far as new projects go, we have added in three pdf files, kindly
provided by the Yizkor Book in Print Project of books they have published
through their auspices. As with all our online translations and books,
access to these are without charge but, of course, if you interested in
purchasing one of these published books, please see details of how to
obtain them in the YBIP Project page, listed at the end of this report.

We have also been fortunate in June, in receiving access to another
online book by Meir G. Gover - this time on the "Radzyner Rebbe dynasty
1840-2005". We do thank Meir for making this book available and I feel
sure will be of interest to those of you with roots in Radzyn Podlaski,
Poland.

In this past month, a number of Translation Fund projects have been set
up to obtain financial support of people with the same aim - achieving
the English translation of the Yizkor book about the community they hold
dear to their heart. As I so often note, the Yizkor books contain so much
for us in details of the communities and the people in them - details
which are unavailable in any other source.

The translation funds that have recently been setup are for the books on
Turobin, Poland and Svencionys, Lithuania and your support for any of
these funds will greatly assist in achieving the goal of completely
translating these books. I invite you to visit our JewishGen-erosity
page, listed at the end of this report, where all our Translation Funds
appear and welcome your donations, be they large or small, to see the
translations of the books become a reality.

And now for details of all the updates and additions that were carried
out in the Yizkor Book Project in June.

We have added in three new books:
