Sara,

[My late uncle Chayim Ronder who was the only Keidaner survivor and a
witness to the massacre in Keidan (on August 28,1941)]

Is this the essay on the Keidan website? If it is, I'd be interested in
learning more as some of my family were mentioned in the article on the
website - Reuven Cesler and Baruchas Cesler.

Thank you.

A family from Szolyva after the Holocaust #general

Israel P <isai8v10@...>
 

A kind soul sent me the following listings, which she found in the US
Holocaust Memorial Museum.

from source Hungarian Claims Conference List, notes: Zionist Archive
List of Special Cases 28/08/1944:

PICKHOLC Eszter, 18 yrs., associated place: Szolyva
PICKHOLC Felix, 56 yrs., associated place: Szolyva
PICKHOLC Mila, 18 yrs., associated place: Szolyva
PICKHOLC Rosa, 52 yrs., associated place: Szolyva

from source Hungarian Claims Conference List, notes: Zionist Archive
List of Vatikim 11/1943:

PICKHOLZ Eszter/
PICKHOLZ Felix, born 1888
PICKHOLZ Mila, born 1926
PICKHOLZ Rosa, born 1892

(end of quoted data)

This appears to be a family of four and I have never heard of them. And
since I don't know the nature of the lists, I haven't a clue where to begin.

Are these lists of people who survived the Holocaust? Is there more
information about them in files someplace? (We have ancedotal references
to a few Pikholz in Hungary after the Holocaust, but nothing really
documented.) Can anyone give me a suggestion how to identify them (Felix'
parents) or how to learn what happened to them?

And while I am at it, where exactly is Szolyva? There seems to be
nothing similar in ShtetlSeeker and the only references in the All
Hungary Database are in JGFF and in "Hungarian Jewish Survivors listed
in a Hungarian Periodical" - neither of which tells me anything.

Thank you for your patience.

Some questions have been asked about our website
<www.jewishgen.org/jerusalem2004> and when we are going to post the
registration form and program. The short answer is by the middle of
February.
The program committee is evaluating an enormous number of very
excellent papers that have been proposed. We promised to get this job
done by the end of January. Since proposals are still coming in, even
though the deadline was the end of December, we extended our own
deadline by a number of weeks. Believe me when I tell you that the
program will be positively outstanding. We have so many excellent
proposals - more than twice the number we can possibly have presented
- that we are going to be able to pick and chose only the absolute
best.
Hotel rates are already posted on our website - [direct link:
www.ortra.com/jgen2004/registration.asp ]
I think you will be more than happy with the inexpensive rates we
have arranged. And don't forget that those rates include all service
charges and taxes as well as our famous, gigantic Israeli breakfast!!
[For myself, that is all I can manage to eat in a day!] The rates per
adult person in a double room are - are you ready for this? - between
$40 and $48. For sure it would cost you more just to stay at home! So
come to our magnificent and unique city of Jerusalem, which was one
of the official seven wonders of the world!
Our Conference is not only going to be outstanding as far as Archival
cooperation and input, but it is probably going to be the best
conference in terms of quality and breadth that the IAJGS has ever
had. We have prepared several databases which we have put on CDs and
which will be given free to full paying registrants. These include:
--The Memorials of Vanished Communities (the very first cataloging of
Israeli memorials of the Jewish Communities destroyed during the
Shoah);
--1875 Montifiore Census of the Jewish Population of Eretz Israel;
--Helkat Mehokek (Translation of Hebrew tombstone inscriptions found on
Mount of Olives);
--An Index to the Jacobi Collection of Family Trees;
--Sephardic and Mizrachi Genealogical Research in Israel;
--Index of Family and Private Archives at the Central Archives for the
History of the Jewish People (a collections of private and family
archives);
--A guide to the Archives and Archival Material for Genealogical Use in
Israel;
and more!
