Cuban Jewish Assistance for Holocaust Survivors 1947-1950 #general

Mike Krug
 

Per my father's immigration manifest, Aron Krug (Kruk), born in Chelm,
Poland, indicates he came to NY August 28, 1947, and went to Cuba the next
day, sponsored by a Dr. R. Zilber.
What support did the Havana, Cuba Jewish community provide to Holocaust
survivors trying to immigrate to the U.S. between 1946 - 1950?

Re: NYC Name Change #general

A. E. Jordan
 

Name changes are a little tricky. Yes they did happen and by the 1930s
mostly they did have to go to the court if they were changing their
family name. The earlier date-wise the more likely they either did it
as part of their naturalization or just did it by saying today I will
be.....

The good news though is if they did the change in a court there's a good
paper trail. First challenge is to figure out where they did it. There's
a name change bureau downtown Manhattan and people are still there doing
name changes there. They have ledger books with the records and the files.
I seem to recall they are filed under the old name or maybe both and by
date.

But I think there were multiple courts where you could do it. I seem to
recall the State Supreme Court also has name change files and I assume you
could do it in most of the boroughs.

If the person changed their name in the courts they were required to put a
notice in the newspaper and supply a copy of the notice to the court. I
have seen them in the files. In theory if you could figure out which
newspaper you could search for them that way. Might try Fulton or other
online newspapers. Problem is it is rare it was The New York Times .... a
lot of times it was in the legal paper or a community newspaper.

The files only show the details of the name change .... they do not have
other genealogical info as I recall but it is a while since I retrieved one
of these files.

...she probably changed her name. I'm guessing this would
have occurred in New York City, but possibly in New York State, in the late
1930s. Are such records available for search? I'd be pleased to communicate
offline with anyone who has experience with them. And thanks!

History of Polish Jews and by the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical
Institute of Warsaw, which may each provide speakers on topics closely
related to their respective institutions.

"Grunwald" Birthplace of Rebeka / Rivka NUERENBERGER, nee GUTTMAN #general

Hilary Osofsky
 

I'm hoping that someone might have information that would assist in the
determination of which "Grunwald" was the birthplace of my great-great-
grandmother, Rebeka / Rivka Nuerenberger, nee Guttman.

My sole information about her birthplace comes >from the Hungarian-SIG's
death record for her which indicates that Rebeka / Rivka Nirenberger
(sic.), age 70, died February 8, 1887, in Gibely, Hungary (now Zalesie,
Slovakia). Rebeka was the wife of my g-g-grandfather, Isak Nuerenberger,
an innkeeper who was born in Gibely, where the two of them raised their
10 or 11 children and apparently lived their entire lives. This death
record is the sum total of my information about Rebeka's Guttman family.

There is no Jewish community listed on JewishGen corresponding to the
name Grunwald / Gruenwald / Grunvald. However, according to JewishGen's
Gazeteer, there are five possible towns for Grunwald, three of which are
in Austria, one in Poland, and two in the Czech Republic. While some of
them are closer to Gibely than others, I am not aware of any other
information that would narrow the search.

Thanks to the research of fellow member Shaul Sharoni, we know that
there are concentrations of Guttmans in Alsolaps / Lapsze Nizne, Poland
and in Niedzica, both of which are not only on the Slovak-Polish border,
but also in close proximity to Gibely. Unfortunately, there is no known
connection between either of them and Rebeka's family.

Thank you.

Publication of the Bendery Moldova Yizkor Book Translation #general

Joel Alpert
 

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project of JewishGen is proud to announce
the publication of its 64th title,
"Yizkor Book of Our Birth Place: Bendery, Moldova
Translation of Kehilat Bendery; Sefer Zikaron"
in hard cover.

Original Hebrew and Yiddish Yizkor Book published by the Bendery
Societies in Israel and the United States 1975
Editor of the Original Yizkor Book: M. Tamari and Dina Ginton
Editor of this English Translation: Gloria (Schwartzman) Green

Hard Cover, 11" by 8.5", 714 pages with all illustrations of the
original Yizkor book,

List Price: $65.95 Available on Amazon for around $49

Located along the Dniester River, control of the town of Bendery
changed over the course of several hundred years: >from the Ottoman
Empire to Russia (as part of Bessarabia); >from Romanian then Nazi
occupation to Soviet control. Since 1992, Bendery is a city within
Moldova under de facto control of the unrecognized Pridnestrovian
Moldavian Republic (Transnistria). Surrounded by rich farmlands with
excellent market transportation, in the early 1900s it was also rich
with scholars, musicians, and other artists among its over 10,000
Jewish residents. Visiting cantors, opera troupes and theater
companies added to the depth of the cultural life. It was a notably
benevolent -- kind -- community, providing a wide variety of social
services. Visiting Jewish soldiers always knew that by standing
outside of one of the many synagogues on Friday evening they could end
up with a place at a Shabbat table.

During that time period and across several decades, the close knit
Jewish community in Bendery began to find themselves at great risk,
with oppression descending into pogroms in cities and villages around
them. Impressively, the Jewish young people in Bendery organized
themselves for self-defense to neutralize anti-Semitic threats against
their people. Over time, strong Zionist beliefs led many to make
Aliyah to the Land of Israel. Those left behind suffered greatly at
the hands of Romanians, locals, and Germans during the Holocaust. In
this book you will find "documents and testimonies, descriptions and
images of outstanding personalities and ordinary folk, public
institutions, Heders, synagogues and academies, schools and libraries,
youth movements and sports clubs, choirs and drama groups. They all
contributed a great love for Jewish culture and tradition, the Land of
Israel, Renaissance and pre-revolutionary Russian literature and
culture."*

The Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project of JewishGen is proud to announce

"Yizkor Book of Our Birth Place: Bendery, Moldova

Societies in Israel and the United States 1975
Editor of the Original Yizkor Book: M. Tamari and Dina Ginton
Editor of this English Translation: Gloria (Schwartzman) Green

Located along the Dniester River, control of the town of Bendery
changed over the course of several hundred years: >from the Ottoman
Empire to Russia (as part of Bessarabia); >from Romanian then Nazi
occupation to Soviet control. Since 1992, Bendery is a city within
Moldova under de facto control of the unrecognized Pridnestrovian
Moldavian Republic (Transnistria). Surrounded by rich farmlands with
excellent market transportation, in the early 1900s it was also rich
with scholars, musicians, and other artists among its over 10,000
Jewish residents. Visiting cantors, opera troupes and theater
companies added to the depth of the cultural life. It was a notably
benevolent -- kind -- community, providing a wide variety of social
services. Visiting Jewish soldiers always knew that by standing
outside of one of the many synagogues on Friday evening they could end
up with a place at a Shabbat table.

During that time period and across several decades, the close knit
Jewish community in Bendery began to find themselves at great risk,
with oppression descending into pogroms in cities and villages around
them. Impressively, the Jewish young people in Bendery organized
themselves for self-defense to neutralize anti-Semitic threats against
their people. Over time, strong Zionist beliefs led many to make
Aliyah to the Land of Israel. Those left behind suffered greatly at
the hands of Romanians, locals, and Germans during the Holocaust. In
this book you will find "documents and testimonies, descriptions and
images of outstanding personalities and ordinary folk, public
institutions, Heders, synagogues and academies, schools and libraries,
youth movements and sports clubs, choirs and drama groups. They all
contributed a great love for Jewish culture and tradition, the Land of
Israel, Renaissance and pre-revolutionary Russian literature and
culture."*

I've just learned that the reason the trail of a woman I'm trying to trace
has gone cold is that she probably changed her name. I'm guessing this would
have occurred in New York City, but possibly in New York State, in the late
1930s. Are such records available for search? I'd be pleased to communicate
offline with anyone who has experience with them. And thanks!
