Kunagota Cemetery - Hungary #hungary

G Czene
 

I recently learned >from Istvan Balogh in Hungary, who
has done extensive research on the Jewish community of
Bekes megye, that the Jewish cemetery in Kunagota will
be closed. According to him, there was an agreement
with religious elders who agreed that if there were no
funerals in 25 years, the town could re-incorporate
the site.

Does anyone know what can be done to prevent this?
What do we need? I am in Los Angeles, he is in
Budapest now, but if anyone has experience with this,
I would appreciate your information. Thank you.

This is a very complex subject. The best discussion of which I am aware is
in Michael Stanislawski's book "Tsar Nicholas I and the Jews." Much of what
follows quotes or paraphrases his book.

If you're interested in the subject, I strongly encourage you to get
Stanislawski's book at the library!!

Yad vaShem-Auschwitz Victims-Additional Data #hungary

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,
As you probably know the Auschwitz Museum website has
an alphabetical list of 69,000 victims who were
executed there,including non Jews.I just discovered
that Yad vaShem has posted the same list on the PoT
section but with additional data:
the names of the victim's parents. Thus I now know
that the parents of my relative Hermann KOENIGSBUCH
from Michalovce were Joseph KOENIGSBUCH and Helene
BLAS. Only by having his father's given name I know
how he is connected to me(Joseph and my grandfather
Ascher were brothers).
I assume that BLAS family is >from Slovakia. If it
rings a bell I would like to hear privately.

Early 20th Century Death Notices #general

Bobmar37
 

Several years ago I was looking up some obituaries as a favor for someone
else and found that in those days newspapers didn't have a section for
obituaries. They were squeezed in between news articles and social notices
here and there, particularly in small town newspapers. In one case, I didn't
find the obit I was looking for but simply a notice that a man was home from
out-of-town visiting his mother, with no mention of the father's death!

I made my first posting to the JewishGen site yesterday and I've been simply
overwhelmed with the many helpful and kind responses I've received.
Clearly this is a very knowledgeable, and special, group. Hopefully, I'll be
able to return the favor one of these days.

My thanks to you all.

Help needed with Yiddish translation of one short paragraph from Yizkor Book #poland

Darren Dalcher <D.Dalcher@...>
 

I have just uncovered a paragraph about my great-grandfather, Avraham
SZTAJNWORCEL who perished in the Holocaust, in a Yiddish Yizkor Book
(for the Tomaszow-Lubelski community). Was hoping for some help with the
translation to English.

I am looking for translation of the short paragraph dealing with Avraham
SZTAJNWORCEL (which is the first main paragraph on the page).

A copy of the document has now been uploaded into Viewmate (VM7389):
http://data.jewishgen.org/viewmate/ALL/viewmateview.asp?key=7389


Any help with the translation will be greatly appreciated.


Please respond directly to me (d.dalcher@mdx.ac.uk), rather than to the
entire list.

With many thanks,
