Fanny ROSENBERG VM 4414 #general

B Kaye <belinda_kaye@...>
 

Hi Genners

I am fairly new to this and I am hoping someone will be able to translate
the Hebrew on this stone of my GGG Grandmother. The photograph itself has
been mounted on card and is actually a picture of a tombstone similar to
what is found in a catalogue or brochure. The name of the Stonemason is
visible (Harris & Son). This Company was taken over during in the 1960's
and I visited the Company which took them over but the records for this
period have been destroyed. They could not read the Hebrew (as they did not
understand the names) their words to me were 'its vulgar' and they had never
seen anything like it, they could not offer me an explanation to the origin
of the photograph.

As I have no evidence that Fanny or Harris Rosenberg ever came to England I
must assume they remained in Gabin/Kutno region of Poland.

I was wondering if someone could offer an explanation as to why someone
would have a photograph of a Tombstone that is not a real Tombstone made in
London for a grave that was in Poland. Has anyone heard of this before?

Many thanks

Another Jewish onamastic reference #germany

Yekkey@...
 

I forgot another Jewish onomastic reference. It is "Jewish Personal Names,
Their Origin, Derivation and Diminutive Forms" by Rabbi Shmuel Gorr (Zikhrono
l'tovah). He was Habad, so the book shows the Rebbe's influence, but it is still
useful.

I can't confirm whether there is a street in Tel Aviv named for a musician
named MINKOVSKY, but if there is, then it may have been named after the cantor
Pinchas (Pinkhas)Minkovsky, born in 1859 at Belaya Tserkov. He was a cantor at
the Central Synagogue in Odessa as well as at the synagogues in Kishinev,
Kherson, and Lemberg (Lviv).

He is reported to have been very well-educated; in addition to his Talmudic
studies, he learned German and Russian. He studied music in the Conservatory
of Vienna where he achieved a diploma in singing.

The online Russian Jewish Encyclopedia entry indicates he died in Boston in
1924.

See for instance:

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=636&letter=M

http://www.jewishgen.org/Belarus/rje_m.htm

and

http://www.moria.farlep.net/vjodessa/en/synagogs.html

Also,http://www.aishdas.org/avodah/vol04/v04n168.shtml

has an interesting letter >from a Daniel B.Schwartz who writes that ("Pinye")
Minkovsky composed 18 takanot for Chazanim, and that he was a cantor at the
Eldridge Street Synagogue. He was requested to have a photograph made to
advertise his singing at the Synagogue but refused to smile while posing because he
thought smiling would be undignified.

A "google" search for Minkovsky brought up a number of sites, some of which
showed a Natalya Minkovsky who is associated with music, apparently as critic
and photographer, and a conductor named Marc Minkovsky.

I also found the titles of some Minkovsky songs "Hachema Meirosh Ha'Ilanot"
(The Sun is Setting" and "Shir Ha'Asir" (The Prisoner), and Hachama Merosh
ha"iLanot ( with words by Chaim Bialik). These songs may be by Pinchas as I know
that many cantors did compose music.

At: http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Dubossary/dub298.html

there is a paragraph which concerns a Yechiel Tselnik, a traditional Jew and
Zionist and big business man. Tselnik often made business trips to Odessa,
where he "worshipped" the famous Cantor Pinchas Minkovsky, and every time he
would bring back to Dubossary a new Cantorial melody.

Marriage in Auschwitz - correction #general

Sam Lenger
 

Hi all
First of all I want to thank Roger Lustig that show me an inconsistency in
my message and I send it again now corrected.
Hi all
During the last IAJGS conference in Jerusalem I went to Yad Vashem and
searched with their computer the Page of Testemonies database. In the search
I found out someone that fill in a page of testimony for a brother of my gf.
and his wife. This lady called Miriam was their daughter and she died 6
years ago in Israel. I succeed to identify her children and they told me
that Miriam a survivor of Auschwitz married another survivor of Auschwitz
after the camp was liberated. A jewish chaplain >from the US Army performed
the marriage. The marriage was performed between the end of the war and some
point in 1947 when the couple arrived in Palestine. According to Roger the
marriage was not performed in Auschwitz since the US Army does not liberate
the camp but may have been performed some point westwards.
My question is: It is possible to identify the jewish chaplain and the
record of the marriage?

Moses GUGGENHEIMER, Issachar Baerman FRAENKEL #germany

isak@bm.technion.ac.il
 

Dear GerSiggers
I was wondering if anybody has information concerning Moses GUGGENHEIMER
(or Moyse GUCKENHEIMER in old spelling) who lived in Mittelfranken
(Middle Franconia, Fuerth) at the end of the 17th - first half of the
18th century.

His nickname was COSCHEL. I have information that he was related to Hanna
GUGGENHEIM (d.1698) daughter of Maier GUGGENHEIM, who was the first wife of
R'Issachar Baerman FRAENKEL (d.1708) of Fuerth and Ansbach.

I would greatlly acknowledge any information concerning Moses GUGGENHEIMER
("Coschel") and the nature of his relation to Hanna Guggenheim.
