Jews in_Thueringen 1933 - 1945 - BOOK CITE #germany

Most of the 20th century records relating to Jews resident in Thüringen were
destroyed during World War II. However, in 1996 the European Culture Center
in Erfurt sponsored a study utilizing a variety of sources identifying about
5,000 Jews who had been resident in Thuringia in the 1930s, but who had been
born as early as the 1850s.

The result was a two volume work, "Juden in Thüringen 1933-1945,
Biographische Daten, Unfortunately, this was hardly a best seller.
I realize that the books/the information are difficult to access. [* see
Moderator note below.]

I am currently working with the Bundesarchiv to include Thuringia material
in its Residentenliste and, if Gersigers (is there such a term?) have
special interests/names in this state, I will see what I can find. Please
be merciful and specific with such requests, e.g. not every person with the
family name Cohn or Levy.

Bavaria in 1804 #germany

John Anderson
 

I am trying to determine if the Hirsch FALK born in 1804 in Muentz,
Duren, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany is the same as my 3x ggf. I had
always thought that he came >from Bavaria. With the shifting boundaries
pre- and post-Napoleonic era, might that birthplace have been at one
time in Bavaria? There is a line of FALK in Nordhrhein-Westfalen going
back to before the 1770s, and I would love to connect to them, but I
hesitate based on the distance >from current Bavaria.

My Hirsch FALK was married to Celia / Zipporah KLEIN, but I have no
dates for either of them. I do know they had (at least) 4 children:
-- Henrietta/Yetta, (1828-1917)
-- Ludwig (1829-1912)
-- Jacob (abt. 1831 - ?)
-- Babette/Barbara (1835-1903)
All claimed to have been born in Bavaria.

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

"Grandma (Safta) Marisha" >from the Yizkor book of Kurzeniac (Kurenets),
Belarus is a story of poverty — a mother who had to wrap cloth around
her son’s feet because she could not afford boots for him — that evokes
the sadness, the struggle and feeling of shame that came along with
being poor. But this particular story is one with a happy ending thanks
to "the wonderful deeds and the heart full of pity" of the title
character, Safta Marisha.

Searching: BLUMENKRANZ, Kovel #ukraine

Jay Nusholtz
 

I'm searching for information on my grandfather's family >from Kovel.
In 1921, emigrating >from Kovel to Philadelphia were:

Zalman (My Grandfather age 20)
Chaja (18)
Anna (12)
Fruma (Great Great Aunt 35)
Abraham (13)
Szmul (11)
Josef (9)

Other family members were documented by Zalman's Yahrzeit records:

Yahrzeit of Duddy

B"R Tzvi B"R Shima

20 in Shevat 5680 (1920)


Yahrzeit my grand father

R' Tzvi B"R Shimmy

3 of Hanukkah


Yahrzeit of my father R' Asher Jacob B"R Moshe Z"L

12th in Tamuz 5679

(1919)

Yahrzeit of my mother

_Malye_daughter of Tzvi

1st of Sukkot 5676

(1915)

Yahrzeit Dvora

daughter of Reuven

3rd of Tishrei 5676

(1915)

We know that Anna BLUMENKRANZ was an Aunt to Zalman and sisters. (Sol,
Helen and Anna BLUM) and that her husband, David SHULMAN was responsible
for the group's safe passage to the US.  We do not know whether Anna was
a sister of Asher Jacob (the father) or Malye (the mother). Fruma was a
BLUMENKRANZ by marriage to Duddy Tzvi, referred to as "Harry BLUM" in
Josef's Social Security application. Fruma and Malye may have been sisters.

We're also aware of a cousin named Henryk KIPER, which may be helpful.

Any information on the family would be greatly appreciated.
