Descendants of Meshulem and Ayreh KRONMAN from Zdunska Wola #general

Martin Kronman <mkronman@...>
 

I am interested in contacting any descendants of Meshulem and
Ayreh KRONMAN. The latter were born in Zdunska Wola in 1897
and in 1909, respectively. Their parents were Benjamin KRONMAN
and Fayge MIKELSON who were married in 1894 in Zdunska Wola. The
Yizkor Book for Zdunska Wola, published in 1968, showed the
Meshulem died in Israel after WWII, his wife and children having
died during the war. It is not known if Meshulem married again
in Israel and had children there.

The Social Security index of deaths showed that Aryeh, or as we
was known in the US as Harry, died in 1997 in New York City. His
application for a Social Security account was dated June, 1947,
showing that he was living in the United States at that time. At
that time he lived in Brooklyn, NY. It is not clear as to whether
he came to the United States Europe before WWII or afterwards,
perhaps via Israel. I have been unable to determine if he married
in the United States and had children.

I would greatly appreciated hearing >from anyone who knew of Harry
(Ayreh) and Meshulem KRONMAN and their descendants. Any suggestions
about a source for such information would also be welcome.

Locating Israeli telephone listings #general

Jeff Blustein
 

Occasionally I've helped genners look up phone listings in Israel,
but it's something anyone who is familiar with the Hebrew alphabet
can do. The site www.144.bezeq.com opens with brief instructions
in Hebrew. There's a typewriter bar in the lower left of the screen
where you can input the surname, first name, street and town. It
also has a helpful soundex feature that's built in. If you're not
sure what area of the country set the area to 00- the entire country,
and set it to return 20 listings per screen. This site has helped me
locate quite a few relatives. Gamar tov to you all

I would appreciate if anyone could help translate the Yiddish written on a
post card which was sent to my grandmother, Mary Bernstein in Chicago, sent
by her brother in Warsaw. I assume that it was written prewar. The reverse of
the post card has an interesting group photo of men in which they appear to
be a social organization.

Unfortunately, a portion of the post card is torn away and mission. The
brother's name would be either Manasha or Moishe. Mary's maiden name was
Karcewer/Karchover, and her family was >from Warka, Poland.

The post card can be found a the View Mate Site

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

JRI-Poland urgently needs used lap-top (notebook) computers #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear friends:

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland needs laptop computers
to help us in our indexing projects and data checking work
in Poland.

If you have upgraded recently and have an old laptop,
please let us hear >from you.

Here are the minimum specs we require:

Computers should have a minimum of 500 meg hard drive, and a
CD Rom drive, and Windows 95 (preferably a Pentium 1).
The necessary Excel software will be added by JRI-Poland.

If you have a used laptop gathering dust, or your company is
upgrading and may be willing to donate a laptop to a worthwhile
project, we will arrange to get it to Poland. In fact, we know
several people who are leaving prior to mid-October so please
don't delay if you can help out. Don't worry if it needs
a little work; JRI-Poland will take care of that.

In accordance with US IRS regulations and JRI-Poland's 501(c)(3)
status, a US tax receipt will be issued for the current market value
of the computer. If you can help, please contact me as soon as
possible.

Dachau / Riederloh #general

I just (after 60 years) found out my father died in Dachau but

I never heard of it before. Appreciate your help.
My comment:

Dear Lili,

a search in yahoo.de provided the information that today "Riederloh"
is part of the German town Germaringen (zip code D-87656). The
location and a map is available through the address. This site also
provides a history of the whole place, although, as usual, there does
not seem a history between 1933 and 1949. In 1949 Riederloh was
resettled by Sudenten-Germans evicted >from Czechoslovakia.

Germaringen Ortsteil Riederloh

Karte von Riederloh.
http://www.germaringen.de/riederloh.html

But even before the place seems to have been hardly settled, just a
few farmers. One possibility could be that your father was at some
time working as forced laborer at one of the farms there, unless there
is a record of an Aussenlager of Dachau somewhere that is totally ignored
in the official history,

Possibly the Dachau museum staff could help you to clear up this
information. They also provide copies of the official record to next
of kin. Their email address is

info@kz-gedenkstaette-dachau.de

I hope that helps.

With kind regards

Fritz Neubauer, North Germany

Re: Riederloh camp near Dachau #general

NFatouros@...
 

In a message dated 9/10/02 2:17:51 AM, Lili Susser (susserl@attbi.com)
writes:

<< I just (after 60 years) found out my father died in Dachau but

Dachau had 123 subcamps. A "google" search turned up several sites
for Riederloh including one which had a map of the town. Most of the
sites were in German, but some had a button for automatic English
translation (which is usually crude). ( One URL was partly described
as mentioning that it was a "punishment" camp" but when I clicked it
on, the site was unavailable.

But at:

http://www.acu.edu/academics/history/12ad/campsx/camps.htm

there is a typewritten letter in English >from an Anton Posset to a Mr.
Saks about a concentration map of Dachau Mr. Saks had. Mr. Posset said
Mr. Saks' map was very inaccurate. Mr. Posset then presents a brief
numbered list of several locations near Dachau where inmates worked,
one of which was Riederloh, which Mr. Posset sad was 60 miles >from
Landsberg, near Kaufbeuren. He writes that reports still exists >from
inmates of the Riederloh camp.

A couple of URLs giving lists of "Forgotten camps" list Riedloh. One
of these is:

http://www.logon.org/_domain/holocaustrevealed.org/Camps/camps2.htm

which puts Riedeloh as one of a group under the heading "Kaufering
Erptfing"

Another site, this one of the Janusz Korczak Communication Center, at:

http://korczak.com/maler/tzur/tzur-3.htm

offers some accounts by former inmates one of whom came to Dachau from
Riederloh in 1944. (This site is in German but automatic translation
in English is possible but it doesn't comprehend that Kaufering is a
place name.)

Riederloh is also listed in a French site at:

http://www.crrl.com.fr/Ressources/Camps/r.htm

Riederloh was a former ammunitions factory owned by Alfred Nobel & Co.
or its "daughter" firms. The factories made dynamite. (See:

http://www.kirchenmusikneugablonz.gmxhome.de/chronik.html

and

http://www.altenforst.de/projekte/unischu/html/1945/450508b.htm )

Ironically, many of the Riedloh websites which "google" turned up
indicate that the town is now the location of a organization
called "Humedica" which is devoted to famine relief in southern Africa.

Possibly more about Riederloh can be found in books, but my 1962
Columbia Lippincott Gazetteer does not list it. But it does have an
entry for Kaufbeuren (see above mention of Mr. Posset's letter to
Mr. Saks) so I suppose that Riederloh was merely a suburb of Kaufbeuren.

Re: Question re Passenger Lists #general

Peter Zavon <PZavon@...>
 

Are the passenger lists in the National Archives the same as the
manifests at Ellis Island? In other words, if I have passenger
manifests that show date of arrival as well as city of origin,
are the passenger lists at the National Archives going to show
me anything new?
Yes, they are the same. If you have the actual image of the manifest
from the Ellis Island Database you have an image of what the National
Archives has on microfilm. (If all you have is the text list form
the Database, you do not necessarily have all the data that was on
the manifest, and you may have something that is incorrect because
the volunteer who extracted the data got something wrong.)

What you might gain >from the National Archives is a larger image, or
some other image variation that might make something that is obscure
on one easier to read in the other.
