Please don't forget the the word Zidovsky has a soft "Z" sound like Zsido.
This means that there is a diacritical mark above the "z". In order for
your search to find the word, you have to incorporate the diacritical.

The URL which our moderator added at the end of Moshe's message works, and
if you click on it you will see that there are plenty of "jewish" and
"zidovsky" references on the site. If you do not have a "cs"
keyboard/fonts, they I would recommend that you cut and paste one of the
"Zidovsky" words into your search terms and voila. Diacriticals are a pain
for us >from across the big pond, but they are a fact of life.

Good luck,
Gabi

Jewish cemeteries in Slovakia #hungary

Gábor Hirsch <g_hirsch@...>
 

I tried to copy the Jewish cemeteries listed under my privously mentioned
virtual Slovak cemeteries, the URL is
http://www.cemetery.sk/english/?pid=900, the Problem is that they use
accents which is against the H-SIG rules, I hope they will still pass.

It seems that this Domain for some reason doesn't have a proper name. Out of
couriosity I looked at the Google for "Starý židovský cintorín" to find
another URL and came to the following address, which lists several Slovak
cemeteries and some of they are Jewish, like:

Barca - Židovský cintorín
Bijacovce - Židovský cintorín

it's little distressing to see that the english pages on that web site,
along with all references to "zidovsky" (jewish), seem to have been
removed.
(all the pages that turned up in a google search for "zidovsky
site:kosice.sk" appear to be missing >from the server.) "zidov" also
doesn't return
any results >from the site's own search feature.

is this just a restructuring of the web site, or a purge of the city's
jewish history?

ps. i understand the moderator's note, but accessing the pages other than

Vivian I lived in Budapest in 1944, and I survived on Vadasz utca 29, an
annex to the Swiss embassy where about 4000 people were hidden, mostly
young Zionist. I don't know anything about Miklos, but maybe if you
would send the search to ALLGENERATION (Szerena Woolrich news letter,

maybe somebody heard or knows about him . It's worth trying it. I

New York City Convention Housing, Meals and Transportation Information #general

Linda Lieberman <linda114@...>
 

The NYC and Company, New York City's Convention and Tourism Bureau, has a
comprehensive website www.nycvisit.com where you can order tour guides, maps,
see special hotel accommodations, You can find hotels and motels at various
internet websites, as well as others at the www.aaany.com website (AAA members),
www.aarp.org (AARP members) and other affinity groups or travel-related services
sites.

Visitors are better off staying at hotels on the west side of Manhattan or nearby
New Jersey, since they are more easily reached by subway, bus and train. While
accommodations are less expensive in Westchester, the difference in price will be
taken up by train and cab fares, which will most likely be rising due to fuel
price increases.

Visitors can purchase weekly Metro Cards, which work on subways and buses, at many
places around the city. Car rentals and parking are horrible at best and not
advised, unless someone is coming in daily. There are also no specially designated
handicapped parking facilities in New York City.

The Marriott Hotel is a lovely one. There are elevators and escalators. Several
restaurants there provide good, if expensive, food. Better bets are
breakfasting/lunching at fast food outlets nearby. The hotel website
www.nymarriottmarquis.com provides alot of detail. Consider buying a discount
coupon book for New York City, which will save you money on meals, etc.


We look forward to having you visit us in New York next summer. Bring comfortable
shoes and clothing. We have lots to see and do.

My annual bugbear about the conference is the cost of the hotel, meals etc. Spare
a thought for those of us outside the US, who have to also pay for transatlantic
flights. I think that a lot of people (younger people, people on lower incomes)
never have the chance of coming to these conferences, due to cost.

I've never stayed at the conference hotel, although I can see the attraction,
purely because of cost. I can't understand why these conferences aren't held on
university campuses, which tend to be available for hire during the quiet summer
months.

Re: NY 2006 Accommodations #general

Schelly Talalay Dardashti
 

Prospective attendees should note that sharing a room at the conference hotel
makes it much more affordable. For example, three roommates brings the price down
to about $80 each; with four, even less.

As a veteran conference-goer who has stayed at all types of accommodation (site
hotel and alternative, with roommates and alone), hands-down winner is staying at
the hotel and sharing with roommates to keep down costs.

There will be a roommate coordinator for NY 2006 who will help attendees find
people to share with. Or make plans now to share with friends and colleagues, as
some of us have already done at this early stage. We are delighted to be able to
spend some time in person each year -- our communications during the year are
limited to email, because we live on different coasts/countries!

At 7 in the morning or 11 at night, it is much easier to push an elevator button
than to first begin to travel subways, buses, suburban trains or expensive cabs,
either in morning rush-hour or late at night.

Additionally, staying in the hotel means you can go upstairs to retrieve materials
and avoid having to carry large heavy bags of essentials all day, to kick off your
shoes and take a rest mid-day, to change comfortably for evening events.

Another benefit of the site hotel is that there is a $12.95 flat fee per room
(needs to be signed up for) offering internet connection, unlimited local calls
and unlimited long-distance calls (in the US). Shared among 3 or 4 roommates, the
cost will be low.

In regard to food, attendees are not tied to the hotel restaurants as the area
offers many fast-food options, pizza, deli, etc.

With best wishes,

NYC Accommodations for 2006 Conference #general

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

When planning a Conference, it is especially difficult to locate an appropriate
venue which will hold the number of people that attend the IAJGS Conferences,
especially in NYC, which usually has over 1,000 plus attendees. Remember also that
a hotel is required that will provide the amenities needed to present a terrific
and full program of activities and also which has available the diverse or kosher
food choices needed for attendees.

In the NYC area, there are only a limited number of hotels of this calibre which
are available and, I am quite sure, that the NY Committee researched all the
available choices and those that had time slots during the summer. The Conference
also depends on having a certain number of attendees to stay at the Conference
hotel as this helps to pay for the extra meeting rooms and other things needed for
planning a robust program.

I think if you cannot afford to stay at the Marriott, there are other less
expensive altermnatives for you in NYC itself and outlying areas, so don't miss
out on the Conference because of the cost of the Conference hotel. However, if you
are having mixed feelings about where you will stay, make the decision to stay at
the Marriott as I think you will be happy you did. You will have a broader
spectrum of activities you can take advantage of, particularly in the evening.

This is only my personal opinion.
