Dear Fredel

Welcome to the group.

I know of DORFZAUNs in Ecuador (distant relatives by marriage): it's not
a particularly common name, and I would guess they may well be
descended >from your DORFZAUN families >from Rodelmaier and Schwanfeld.

Best wishes, Peter Lobbenberg, London, England peterlob@peterlob.co.uk

(UK) Wiener Holocaust Library Looking For Assistance In Identifying German-Jewish Photographer Subjects #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Wiener Library (London, England) is one of the world's oldest museums
dedicated to the Holocaust and Nazi era. (https://www.wienerlibrary.co.uk).
It has begun a search to uncover the identities of people featured in
photographs taken by a German- Jewish photographer, Gerty Simon, who fled
Germany to London 85 years ago. They are looking for assistance in
discovering the names of 80 individuals who were photographed by Gerty
Simon, for a planned exhibition next year.

Photographer Simon was already well-established as a photographer before she
left Berlin in 1933. Some of her subjects were Weimar Berlin artists,
politicians, cultural figures and she became one of Britain's most
successful author of children's books.

Once she arrived in London she took photographs of a number of British
famous people. An article in the Times of Israel gives a brief biography of
Ms. Simon, including about her son and husband being interned as part of the
round-up of "enemy aliens" in June 1940 when the British presumed a German
invasion was imminent. Her son was part of the infamous voyage of the
Dunera when many Jewish-German refugees were transported to Australia.
After her son's death in 1970, his partner donated his papers and archives
including hundreds of Ms. Simon's portraits to the Wiener Library in 2016.

The Wiener has catalogued and digitized the images and commenced a social
media effort to identify the unknown individuals. The unidentified images
have been uploaded to Flickr for the public to help identify the unknown
subjects. To see the unidentified photos go to:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/142862320@N08/sets/72157702691117974
The library is encouraging the use of the hashtag #FindingGerty to increase
awareness of its search.

If there are notes on the back of the photographs the images are so
labeled, as well as if the staff has determined if the photograph is of a
person >from Germany or London. Some successes advise that the photograph
could be someone visiting Germany or London, >from another country,
therefore, everyone should look at the photos.

Louis Fried of Astoria #general

Alyssa Freeman
 

Hi, All -
My great-uncle and one of my great-aunts (brother and sister) -
Louis and Sonia/Sophia FAB (nee Leibisch/Lyova and Sonia FAVELYUKIS)
came to America through Ellis Island in 1913. According to the ship's
manifest, they came >from Ozerasne in the Kherson gubernia, Russia, and
were going to stay with their uncle, Louis FRIED, of 261 Steinway
Avenue in Astoria, NY (I know there is no Steinway *Avenue*, but
according to my mom, who grew up in Astoria, it's likely Steinway
*Street*, now, as my grandmother always called Steinway Street "Steinway
Avenue"). I've looked up the census records for everyone I could find
who was named Louis Fried and lived in Astoria/Manhattan/Queens
between 1910 and 1920 and came up empty. Here are my questions:

(1) Is Ozerasne the same place as Ozerne?
(2) Does *anyone* have Louis Fried >from Astoria in their family tree? No
one in my family knows this name. We don't have anyone in our tree
named "Fried." I'm thinking he was married to someone who was a blood
relative? I figure since they said they were going to stay with HIM
and not their aunt, then perhaps she had died (or maybe there's a part
of my family tree no one remembers). Please email me if you know about
Ozerasne or about David FRIED of Astoria, NY. Thank you! Chanukah
Same'ach!
