Dora Donis
 

Dear Listers,

I have posted a photograph, VM7055, in the hope that someone might recognize
this lady, quite possibly, my gggrandmother, Essie KESTLER. The photograph
was taken in either Budapest or Vienna around the mid 1800s.

Please view the photograph and contact me if you know her identity.

Eternally grateful.

Surnames: POLACSEK, BRAND, SCHAFFER #austria-czech

norma schaffer <schaffernorma@...>
 

My maternal g-father Otto POLACSEK was born in Weener Germany - he moved
to Vienna Austria but I don't know when. My maternal g-mother, Helene
POLACSEK nee BRAND was born in Krakow Poland. Otto left Vienna to avoid
the nazis who as my mother told me, were just "taking the men". I am not
familiar with the timetable. My mother Edith SCHAFFER nee POLACSEK along
with her mother Helene BRAND POLACSEK left for Belgium after - I do not know
how much time elapsed between my g-father and my mother and her mother leaving
Vienna for Belgium. Otto POLACSEK was in Holland--Westerbork is where he
was before being transported to Auschwitz.
My g-mother Helene BRAND POLACSEK was arrested in Belgium - do not know
the city, but my mother was watching a movie a a local cinema, se came home
to discover her mother had been taken by the nazis. My mother was saved
by a Cathoic family - Geadin(spelling) living with them for several years
until she was arrested (local nazi "snitch") in 1944 and sent to Auschwitz.

Hungarians to Berlin and how to find records #hungary

peter bakos <pgbakos@...>
 

Hi,

I understand this is off the path, but our ancestors and their families
moved around, so...

Ludwig Podwinetz >from Nagy Becskerek went to Vienna where he died. He left
money to his sister who lived in Berlin with her husband whose family name
was Kafka.

The legacy (100 Kroner!) was in 1917. Any ideas of where to look for
information for Berlin?

Thanks

Cemetery Ownership #hungary

peter bakos <pgbakos@...>
 

Hello fellow Siggers,

This is an odd question, but you will understand the context.

I recently visited Yasa Tomic (Formerly Modos) in the Voivodina. It is in
that area the fascists wnated to make "Juden Frei" and as a result there is
no evidence whatever of a Jewish community there. As some of my Podwinetz
cousins were born there per their marriage information elsewhere, I know
that there was a community at one time.

While on a recent visit a local man took me to a patch of ground which he
described as "Jungle" the sole word in his English vocabulary. We walked
into it but I could not find any monuments but it really was a jungle. So
before I go off with tools in hand and level the undergrowth I want to be
certain of my legal standing. How would I determine any ownership
questions? Any idea where I can find an old topo map which may indicate the
presence of a cemetery? If it does exist what is the protocol in clearing
it? Is it even desireable to clear it?

Thanks

Re: Deportations from Holland #germany

Janet Kirchheimer <janetk521@...>
 

I was able to obtain a list that had the names of my grandparents, aunt and
uncle who were deported >from Westerbork. They were German citizens and were
able to get to Holland as it was an occupied country, and then tried to get
to the US. I was able to get the list about five years ago -- I wrote to
the camp offices via email and they were able to find the deporation list
with my family members on it and they sent me via airmail. The people I
dealt with were quite helpful. It may now be possible to obtain the lists on
line, rather than having it send via airmail. I didn't keep the email
information, but I'm sure you can find it if you do a websearch for Westerbork.
