JGS of Montreal - Special featured speaker - Sunday, May 8th, 2005 #romania

Merle Kastner <merlek@...>
 

The JGS of Montreal, in association with Shaare Zion Congretation,
is pleased to announce that
STUART TOWER, author of "THE WAYFARERS"
will address the Breakfast Club Meeting
at Shaare Zion Congregation
5575 Cote St. Luc Road, Montreal, Quebec
On Sunday, May 8th, 2005
Services at 8:45 am
Lecture at 9:30 am

JGS of Montreal is honoured to welcome Stuart Tower as our "Special Event"
May speaker.
California-based he is the author of the best-selling Jewish historical
book, "The Wayfarers".
Published in 2003, "The Wayfarers" chronicles the emigration, on foot, of
thousands of Jews
from Romania across Europe and to America, between 1899-1914. In Yiddish,
these wayfarers
were known as fusgeyers.

The response to this compelling epic saga has been overwhelming. This
fascinating story tells of
courageous, organized groups of young Jews defiantly set against the sheer
hopelessness of life
under harsh totalitarian rule, trekking to ports across the dangerously
anti-Semitic, xenophobic
Europe of the early 1900's. A docudrama based on the book is being prepared
by Yale Strom.
A feature film is also in the planning stages.

*For reservations, please call*
Adrienne Berman - 514-481-7727, ext. 226

INTRO - Documentation "Jewish physiicians and dentists in Chemnitz 1933-1945" #scandinavia

Dr. Juergen Nitsche <JuNitsche@...>
 

I am involved in preparing of a documentation about the suffering
of "Jewish physicians and dentists in Saxony 1933-1945". I have to
describe the life and suffering of 100 men and women, lived in the
district of Chemnitz. I have finished the short biographies of the
"medical heroes". Now I want to find any further information about
their life in exile.

Especially I am looking for data about Dr. med. Franz AUERBACH, born
31.08.1886 in Berlin.
He went in March, 1933 to Denmark, to Copenhagen. That is the last
information, I found in the archives of Chemnitz.

Who knew Franz AUERBACH?
Thank you very much in advance!

The documentation will be published these year in Frankfurt (Main).

Posting of the KRONMAN family tree to FTJP #general

martin j kronman <mkronman@...>
 

We have just posted a comprehensive KRONMAN family tree to the data base
of he Family Tree of the Jewish People. It consists of about 1,519
individuals who came >from Poland, Hungary, Belaruse and the Ukraine.

1. The Polish Line:

We have been able to trace the KRONMAN line in Poland >from about 1750 to
the time of the holocaust. All of the records of their birth, death and
marriage, apparently available >from Polish archives, were obtained and
translated with the aid of a Polish professional researcher. . The
KRONMAN line in Poland appears to have stemmed >from a single individual,
Salamon KRONMAN, born in 1778.whose mother, Cyrka, was born in 1750; her
husband’s given name is not known. The line appeared to have originated
in Kolo in Poznan Province and spread >from there to: Konin, Tuliszkow,
Kalisz, Golina, Slupca, Warta and Zagarow and after 1840 to 1850 to
Lowicz, Lodz, Ozorko, Dobra and Zdunska Wola in Lodz Province. Members
of the family are also found in the United States, England and Israel.

2. The Hungarian Line; Little information >from records in Hungary were
available when the research was done and what is known came >from records
in the United and primarily >from family members currently living here.
These were all descendants of Abraham KRONMAN born in Miskolc, Hungary
in 1842. Abraham had all 11 children born to two wives, one having died
in Hungary. Abraham and his second wife and all of their children but
one who remained in Hungary, came to the United States between 1879 and
1886. Although the number of members in the Hungarian tree is much
larger than those of the Polish tree. The fact that they all descendants
of a single person suggest that the Hungarian family line is a secondary
one as compared to the Polish tree. Individuals of this family state
that they thought that early Hungarian Kronmans had been >from Poland,
but we have not any evidence for this at present.

3. The line >from Belarus: Nathan KRONMAN born in Vitebsk, in 1874 and
settled in Washington D.C. with his family.

4. The lines >from the Ukraine: One of these was the family of Nathan
Kronman born in Kalishi in 1860 who settled in New York City. The second
one originated in Berdichev, all of whom were descendants of Jacob
Kronman born in 1835. His three sons Moishe, Saul and Edward gave rise
to families who lived in New York City and in upstate New York

5. The Kroman line: The reason for including the surname KROMAN is that
there is the possibility that it is a phonetic variant of KRONMAN.
Indeed, we have found in our research with the Polish family tree that
at in a number of cases the spelling of a particular persons in in
different records may be either KRONMAN or KROMAN. In addition to Poland
. KROMANs are found in western Belarus in towns in the region of Kobrin
and in Pinsk as well as . n Latvia and also in Galicia.

It seems likely that all of the Jewish KRONMAN families outside of
Poland are offshoots of the main family line in Poland, although we have
not as yet established this nor have we been able to determine any
relationship between KRONMANs and KROMAN.s We hope to resolve these
questions in the future.
