Re: N. Karoly #hungary

Doug Cohen
 

Nagy Karoly was the Hungarian name for what is now Carei, Romania; has been
known as Carei Mare, Grosskarol, Karalnnstadt and Nagy Karoly. Jewish
population (prewar) was 2,394; 133 km NW of Cluj-Napoca at 47o41';22o28'.
There is a long (2/3 page) article about the town in the Yad VaShem
Encyclopedia of Jewish Life before and During the Holocaut. If you contact
me off-list, I'll fax or mail you the article.

I have an EI record for someone who could be my GM. The place of last
residence is called N. Karoly. It is very clear on the record. Does
anybody know where this is?

I don't seem to fine it in any data bases

Thanks

could it have been "paula" instead of "paulin"?

Paulin seems to be an usual name for a Jewish woman of that time. I have read many vital and census records for Hungary and Slovakia and that name doesn't appear much.

Does anyone have insight into this name? I have her birth record >from Slovakia, and this is the name that is on it.

Re: Jewish Given Names - Wohamja? #galicia

Peter Jassem <pjassem@...>
 

While I am sure it is not Wohamja, I am pretty sure this is Nehemja, a
Jewish name once used in Poland. If you look closely into the document you
will likely recognize the spelling, unless of course a clerk misspelled it.

Gesher Galicia Tee Shirt Day #galicia

Shelley K. Pollero
 

To all Galitzianers who are going to Las Vegas,

Be sure to bring your Gesher Galicia tee shirt to the Las Vegas conference,
if you have one. We will plan to wear them on Wednesday for the SIG Fair
(9 am to 5 pm). We will make a Galicia statement and our presence will be
noticed.

If you do not have a GG tee shirt and would like one, we will have some at
the conference as a thank you for a donation to Gesher Galicia. See me in
LV. I'm traveling Friday July 8 and am staying at the Flamingo. I'll be
around and at the various Galicia related BOFs on Mon. and the SIG meeting
on Tues. Volunteers will also be helping with the shirts.

See you in blue and white on Wednesday. Be sure to stop by the Galicia table
at the SIG Fair. We hope to see you at the Galicia BOF on Mon. and/or the
Galicia SIG meeting on Tues.

Bon voyage.

Poland to France #france

TE <tome1111@...>
 

Some of my relatives left Poland around 1918 and went to France. I was told
that we had relatives in France who they went to see. They left LeHavre to
the U.S. around 1920.

Recently, I was on the Yad Vashem and looked up the last name, and saw that
there were people with the same last name who were born in Poland around
1864-1899, and were deported >from France (Drancy and Compiegne)to Auschwitz
in 1942.

I'd like to find out if there are any pre/post 1942 French records that I
can access, which will tell me about these people, and who their parents
were??

Thank you,

CZ Torah highlighted in Dallas Film Festival #austria-czech

Vitdoc@...
 

The Fine family of Dallas who worked with the Cz Torah Network
www.czechtorah.org have informed me that Bob Curry's documentary "Dancing
With Torah" has just been notified that it was accepted, by the Dallas Video
Festival.

It will be screened on Sunday, August 7th at Noon, at the Dallas Theatre
Center in the Video Cabaret.

The main characters of Bob's film, are an antique Torah Scroll from
Horovice, Czechoslovakia that survived the Nazis, The Dallas Survivor
Community (many of them who are featured prominently in the film), and a
young boy (Zachary Fine Albert) who set out to raise the funds to bring
the survivor scroll to Dallas.

Much of the Narration is done brilliantly by Rabbi Kenneth D. Roseman.
Who acted as an advisor for the project.

The video, will take you on a journey >from Dallas, to London, to
Horovice, and then back to the Torah's new home The Dallas Holocaust
Museum.

The survivors messages about hope and survival are immeasurable, the
Torah's message is everlasting.

It is a touching, and uplifting documentary.
Hope all those in Texas might get to see it.
