Dual citizenship question #austria-czech

T R
 

Hi friends,
I'm in the midst of applying for dual citizenship with Austria.
The embassy is asking for my original birth certificate, my parent's
marriage certificate, and my father's death certificate, all with apostilles.
Did you have to give them the originals? Do you know why, and when
did you get them back?
Makes me somewhat nervous. They already misplaced a bunch of documents for about five
months. They were eventually found.
Thank you.

Prague police prison camps (Rais-School?) #austria-czech

Barbara_Elkeles@...
 

Dear SIGers

I came across a file concerning Dr. Hans SCHAYER, born Jun 3 1891, in
Berlin. Hans left Germany for Prague in 1934 where he remained until he
received a deportation order in 1943. He successfully hid until Oct. 1944
when he was betrayed and imprisoned in a police prison camp in Prague. A
handwritten note seems to refer to the camp as "Raiska Skola". >from May 12,
1945 and after, Hans lived in the internment camp, Rais Schule, in Prague.
The address of the camp is given as " Prag XII, Strasse des Marschall
Stalin. I am not able to find any information about the camp during Nazi
period. During the period that Hans lived in the camp following the war and
later, it served as an internment camp for Germans. Does anyone know more
about the camp in Prague, its location and its liberation?

stumbling stones and O Cem se Nemluvi #austria-czech

Helen Epstein
 

I just returned >from Prague where I launched the Czech translation of
my most reent book O Cem Se Nemluvi with Helena Klimova's Irene Press
at the American Center. It was an extraordinary meeting with some of
Prague's Jewish and psychotherapeutic community and, as one result, my
family has decided to participate in the stumbling stones project" in
Prague. I wondered whether anyone on this list has done so and could
describe the experience start to finish?

Inquiry about my grandparents marriage license #lodz #poland

Harvey Berliner
 

My grandparents Abraham Bachrach / Berliner and Esther Berlinsky were
married in Lodz about 1895. I am trying to find their marriage license /
certificate because my grandfather either went by the name Abraham Berliner
or Abraham Bachrach. His travel passenger documents to the US in 1910
indicate his name as Abraham Bachrach but supposedly his father's name
was Shalom Berliner and his mother's maiden name was Faiga Bachrach.

According to the on-line documents my grandfather was born in Naschelsk,
Russia about 1876. His 2025 US naturalization petition changed his name
from Bachrach to Berliner. The 1920 census indicated the family name as
Berliner.

I am trying to find out if his name was originally Berliner and he took
his mother's last name to evade the authorities in the Russian empire.

Any help that can be given or put me in touch with a researcher who might
be able to help me would be appreciated.

Thank You

Hi

My ggrandmother Chaya ITMAN (she married Yosel REICHZELIGMAN) had a least
one brother, Abram Itsko ITMAN who was married to Sora Eta KATS. Sora Eta

I found most of this information on The All Lithuania Revision List

If anyone is related to any of those KATS and of course ITMAN,

Rose Greenbaum #unitedkingdom

Barrie Karp
 

I’m seeking descendants of my grandmother, Rose Greenbaum (or
Grunbaum). She was born August 14, circa 1893, probably in Hungary,
and lived in Munkacs with her parents until they sent her to NYC, US,
early 1900s, for safety and “to be raised by her half sister Julia”
(Julia Fuchs, >from Hungary, married to Israel Fuchs, >from Hungary,
soon known as Fox). My grandmother, Rose Greenbaum, married my
grandfather, Abraham Isaac Weiss (also >from Munkacs) in NYC in 1917. I
knew her all my life. She died December 1962. I don’t know names of
any of her siblings. I was told her other siblings were sent to other
countries for safety. I don’t know anything about them. In my research
I have come across some possible names of siblings, but I am unsure,
and don’t have proof or ability to find living descendants. I have
photos of her parents, sent, apparently circa 1926, to my grandmother
in the US >from her mother, Ester Berkowitz Greenbaum in Mukacevo, with
a note addressed generally to her children, implying to me that she
sent same to not just my grandmother but to other siblings elsewhere.
Translators told me the note, probably written in German, says: “As a
memory for my dear children >from your mother”. She indicated on his
picture that her husband, my grandmother’s father, had died, possibly
it says date of his death was February 3, 1926, but I don’t know when
he died. The stamp on the bottom of each photo is Meisels Photography
in Munkacs. My grandmother’s father was Benjamin Greenbaum or
Grunbaum. My grandmother’s mother was Ester Berkowitz Greenbaum.

Possibly my grandmother’s half sister was (if they had same father and
if his name Beny or Benjamin could be same as or in addition to
Ignatz):

Julia Grunbaum,
MOTHER: Rosa Schwarz
FATHER: Ignatz
BIRTH: 3 Jun 1878 - Miskolc, Borsod, Hungary
CIVIL: Miskolc

Possibly these are records for my grandmother’s father, that is,
father of Rose Greenbaum Weiss:

Beny Benjamin Ignatz Grunbaum Greenbaum BIRTH ABT 1840 ? DEATH 3 FEB •
Mukacevo HUNGARY. My great-grandfather. Parents - Sallamon Grunbaum
1811–1884 & Mali Kaufmann 1815–1892. Siblings: Sándor Grünbaum
1843–1901; Betti Grunbaum 1845–1852; Johanka Grunbaum; 1848–?; Chure
Grunbaum ?

I don’t know if the following were my grandmother’s siblings, that is,
siblings of Rose Greenbaum Weiss:

Malche Greenbaum 1884–?; Chaje Grunbaum Greenbaum 1891–?; David
Greenbaum 1893–1944; lyke Ilyka Grunbaum Greenbaum 1893–?;Hannah Razel
Greenbaum 1894–?

Thank you very much if you can help me find my grandmother’s descendants.
