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

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

Passover begins this evening. I have posted in the past several Yizkor books
excerpts about the preparations for the holiday in the shtetls of Europe,
which often began in earnest right after Purim, and the joyous celebrations
of it. This week's excerpt >from the Yizkor book of Yedwabne (Jedwabne), Poland
is very different. The "The Unforgetable Passover of 1943" tells the story of
how Jews imprisoned in the death camp of Birkenau managed to have a Seder.
The author of this chapter, Rabbi Chaim Yitzchak Greengrass, writes "The
celebration of this Seder night left imprints on my soul. Now, when I perform
the Passover service, I understand the meaning of the statement that each man
in every generation is obliged to consider himself as if he personally was
redeemed >from slavery into freedom."

This excerpt is one of many that you can find in this year's Passover
Companion. You can download the full Companion by following the URL in the
message posted nearby on the Facebook page by Avraham Groll.

Process to obtain a German Passport in 1939 to leave Germany #general

Peter Wollinski
 

Dear fellow researchers,
My father lived in Berlin in 1939. Between 1936 & 1938 he attended the
Jewish agriculture training school at Neuendorf Im Sande. He emigrated
from Germany in August 1939 bound for Australia and was to sponsored
by Australian Jewish Welfare Society.

I have been unable to find a source which details the process that my
father would have had to go through to obtain his German passport. The
passport was issued in July 1939.

In particular: What forms would have been required to be completed;
Where did he have to go to in Berlin to deliver the forms and if
necessary be interviewed; How much would it have cost to obtain his
German Passport?; Where was the British Embassy in Berlin located as
they had placed the Australian Visa into the passport; and Where would
have English pounds been obtained >from to pay for the Australian Visa?

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Peter Wollinski

JewishGen: Complex Genealogy in the U.S. Course beginning March 23 #latinamerica

Phyllis Kramer
 

Looking for someone in the U.S.?
If despite basic online research you have not yet found the Hebrew
names, birth year or town for your U.S. immigrant, consider a focus on
the more complex documents our ancestors generated including
Naturalization, Passports, Death Records (Probate, Obituaries,
Cemeteries), Newspapers, City Directories, Immigration Ports other
than Ellis Island, Major Archives and Libraries, Military and
Government Records.
We're proud of our Education FORUM where students are encouraged to
post one ancestral branch, and the instructor will respond with
answers to questions and suggestions on avenues to research; this
monthlong personal Mentoring process is unique and quite valuable.
