NATHAN and the ROUXVILLE HOTEL #southafrica

Adam Yamey <adamandlopa@...>
 

I have recently seen a photograph of President JH
Brand, taken in 1883, standing in front of a hotel in
Rouxville, in the (Orange)Free State. The Hotel, a
single storey structure, is named "The Rouxville
Hotel", and on its side wall, is the wording "HOTEL.
BY E. NATHAN". Who was this E. NATHAN? Was he related
to the NATHAN family of Graaf-Reinet?

Thanks, Adam Yamey, London, UK <adamandlopa@yahoo.co.uk>

message on his behalf regarding new databases.

JewishGen is pleased to announce the addition of 37,000 new records

death camp at Chelmno, June-August 1944.

* "Gyor Victims at Auschwitz":
Names of over 3,000 victims >from Gyor, Hungary, deported to
Auschwitz, made by a Jewish communal organization.

* "Jewish Physicians >from Czechoslovakia":

Holocaust, >from an unpublished yizkor book manuscript.
