BLAS/BLASS Family from Bardejov,Slovakia #hungary

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear H-Siggers and Genners
I recently discovered at The Auschwitz Museum website
a certain
Hermann KOENIGSBUCH(1912-1942) who was born in
Michalovce. KOENIGSBUCH is a unique surname, all it's
bearers hail >from Brzesko,Poland. My mother's maiden
name was KOENIGSBUCH.
I saw at Michalovce's Yizkor book reference to
KOENIGSBUCH.
About a month ago I learned that at the Michalovce
cemetery there is a grave of Chaya ,daughter of Isser
and the wife of Joseph KOENIGSBUCH. She died in 1934.
3 days ago I found at Yad VaSHEM Pages of Testimony
that Hermann KOENIGSBUCH's parents were Joseph K. and
Helene BLAS.
Joseph is probably the brother of my
grandfather,Ascher K.
I have no idea where this BLAS family hails from.
There is no mention of them at the Michalovce Yizkor
book so I assue that she was >from somewhere else.
But I browsed today through the Bardejov Yizkor book
because my late father in law,David Apotheker was born
there.By sheer chance I saw there a the name of a
certain Israel Isser BLAS(p. 89).I checked quickly at
Yad Vashem and found 1 PoT for Adela
BLASS >from Bardejov.
I just wonder whether any one on the list with
Bardejov roots can enlighten me about this family?

Yad Vashem-Auschwitz Museum-Additional Data #hungary

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,
Following my recent posting I got several enquiries
frow which I concluded that I probably did not explain
myself properly.
Yad Vashem is posting in the Pages of Testimony(PoT)
not only testimonies submitted by individuals but also
data about victims >from other sources. They took the
monumental work of Klarsfeld about the deportation of
Jews >from France which includes tens of thousands of
names and posted them as seperate pages of testimony.
Did did the same with a thick volume published in
Germany about German Jews who perished in the
Holocaust.The Auschwitz Museum published in 1995 a
book which includes about 69,000 names of people who
perished there.Later they put that data on the
Museum's website. Recently I realized that the data
which was posted on that website was only partial.
Yad Vashem did an important job,they posted the data
from the book as seperate PoTs. The book gives also
the names of both parents of the victim.
In other words,if you enter the Yad Vashem website,you
do not look for the Auschwitz list!!!You just type the
surname,given name and place of the person you are
looking for. If he was included in the Auschwitz
book(and website)-his name will show up as it is a
page of testimony.

Greetings all,

Within the last week, I posted a message that I had put on my web site a
list of the unique surnames to seven of the extant sixteen
Vilnius-associated society plots that are located in New York and New
Jersey. I would like to tell you that now there are names on the list >from
eleven of them, including those >from the very large plot of the United
Wilner Benevolent Association at Mt. Lebanon (nearly six-hundred burials).
There are now nearly seven-hundred unique surnames on the Vilnius unique
surnames list. Surnames >from the remaining five plots, the two in Staten
Island and three in New Jersey, will not be included in this list unless the
information is acquired by other means. Feel free to examine this list and
contact me privately if you find on it a surname that is of interest to you.

The list mentioned can be accessed directly through the link
