Polish Translation Needed - Viewmate VM7294 #poland

JACOB SUSAN JURISZ <suejurisz@...>
 

I have just posted the birth record of my husband's paternal grandfather to
the Viewmate website. If someone could translate even part of this document
from the Polish, I would greatly appreciate it.
The direct link to this file is:

http://data.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7294


If you can help, please reply directly to me at the following address:

Thanks so much!

Louis BLUM d. 1929 [son of Nathan and Agnes], married Bettie
HIMMELHOCH in South Africa. They had three children: Joseph, called
Jose, d. 1997, buried in Israel; Doreen [married WASSERSTEIN; and
Lesley.

I am looking for any information on these families and their
descendants.

Additionally, When Jose's wife Ruby came to israel to bury Jose,along
with their three children: Leon, Neil and Tessa, they reportedly
never returned to South Africa but stayed in Israel. Every Leon BLUM
in Israel has been called, and although every one of them has a South
African connection, none is "my" Leon.

Can anyone help with either knowledge or suggestions on where to go
from here?
Thanks in advance, and happy Channukah!

Revised Skala web site #poland

Tony Hausner
 

First, we are very pleased to announce that there have been extensive
additions to the Skala Podolskaya web site. the site is at

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/SkalaPodol/

to see all the additions, go to the what's new link near the top of the
page. this will take you to many other pages. or scroll down to see all
the links on the main skala page.

We are deeply indebted to Max Heffler and Helene Kenvin for all their work.
Jewishgen recently gave us permission to directly access the web site and
make changes, additions, etc. We are very grateful to Susana Leistner
Bloch, the suchostaw regional coordinator, and Ed Rosenbaum for all their
wonderful work over the past few years in managing the web site. We are also
very grateful to Shelley Pollero for her guidance on the transistion. We
will still be linked to the suchostaw site, but just have direct access to
making changes. With all the new material, we felt it made more sense to
make the additions directly. Max has done a brilliant job of creating the
web pages, and Helene has inspired a lot of the contributions, the ideas for
the additions, and for the general design of the pages. we have received
many compliments for her photos of the weisenthal family, which will be
published in the next issue of the Galitizianer. see

http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/SkalaPodol/Wiesenthal_relatives_perish.html

you can also reach this on the main page by going to

"Relatives >from Skala who perished in the Holocaust."

We have many more additions that we will be making over the next few weeks.
And we hope that we have just started a trend with our group of skala
researchers.

We continue to be very grateful to Max Mermelstein, president, Skala
Benevolent Society, for the incredible number of contributions that he has
made for many years to preserving the memory of Skala and of the victims of
the holocaust.

On another note, many of you may know this, but I just recently learned that
the yad vashem central data base of shoah victims is online

http://names.yadvashem.org/wps/portal/IY_HON_Entrance

for skala, there are 1000 victims listed. I learned several things about my
family >from the listings in this data base. This database has allowed
families who didn't know of each other's existence to make connections.

List of Liquidated Jewish Businesses in Slovakia #hungary

Vivian Kahn
 

The Slovak Institute of National Memory (Ustav pamati naroda) has
published a searchable list of about 10,000 businesses that were taken
from Jewish owners in 1941-42 and turned over to non-Jewish
"liquidators". Even though the information is in Slovak, it's not that
difficult to negotiate once you recognize a few words. You can find
this extraordinary resource at http://www.upn.gov.sk/likvidacie/

Enter the name or first few letters of the name you are searching in
the box titled Podnik and the name of the town next to Mesto. Note
that the search engine is sensitive to diacritical marks. For example,
no problem searching for Michalovce, which doesn't have any. But in
order to search for Presov you have to make sure to have the hacheck
mark over the letter "s". Even though you will get extra hits, you can
avoid this problem by searching for only part of the name (e.g. Pre)
and then pasting the full name with the correct marks in subsequent
messages. You can also search by district (okres) by clicking on the
arrow and selecting the district name in the pull-down menu.

Predmet podnikania describes the type of business. Obchod means store.

Click on Podrobne informacie and you may be able to find the address of
the business. Ulica means street.

Note that come names are listed in alphabetical
order by given name rather than surname. Also be aware that this list
appears to only cover areas that were under Slovak control at the time.
Sobrance and some of the surrounding area in what is now far-eastern
Slovakia, was in Hungarian control (which is also why Jewish residents
from this area were not deported until 1944).
Jan Hlavinka, who assisted us during our trip to Slovakia in August,
works for the Institute and is familiar with this resource. If he sees
this posting I hope that he can provide more information about this resource.

Re: Families from Tolna #hungary

Dear Dr. Lea Gedalia,

I know about R' Michoel Adler, who died in 1941 in Szabadka/Subotica.
Also, there lived R' Yehuda Leib Pollak in Paks. He was Levi, and
came >from the famous family Pollak's of Bonyhad.

Regarding Brucker's, there were Zsigmond Brucker and Lipot Brucker in
Paks in the 1930s.

Did you mention them?

Dear fellow Genners,

To acces accents and other symbols using the keyboard,
I've been writing in Spanish for quite some time by
holding ALT on the left while pressing diff numbers on
the far write. For example: alt + 130 = é; alt+168=¿
etc.... One has to 'play' with the different
combinations to get to the desired symbols.

I hope this helps. Chag Chanuká Sameach and Shabbat
Shalom,
