Re: The book of David Szmulenski about Auschwitz #yizkorbooks

I wish to thank George Neuwirth for his answer. We probably shall find out
once I see the book. I already ordered...

By the way, Szmulewski mentions and writes about many French Jews who were
with him in the Auschwitz Camp and partcipated in the Resistance movement.
We might translate the book to French also.

Just one example on page 69 translated already to French:

"Le groupe “Canadien”, tel qu’il était surnommé, qui s’occupait de la
réception des convois sur la rampe, renforça sa coopération avec
l’organisation de la résistance. Cette coopération était très importante au
niveau de l’information concernant les transports. Le kapo (qui était
responsable vis-à-vis des autorités du camp) était un Juif autrichien qui ne
gênait en rien les activités des résistants. Les responsables de
l’information étaient les suivants: Itzik Friedman, Stein, Benzion Botsza
et son fils, Sam, Bekas, David Lederman, Zanich Breier, Green, Itshe
Lemberger, Leib Fuchs, Philipe Wodka, Leibele de Grodno, Yankel Kwitek,
Herschl et beaucoup d’autres."

Please. Please. take that nasty reply-to out of the headers. It makes
it nearly impossible to send a private message to the originator.

None of the other jewishgen mailing lists have this problem.

Could you tell me if the Chelm yiskor book includes Pieski (piesk) I believe
that such town is in the same area.


MODERATOR NOTE: Have you tried searching for Piesk in the Yizkor Book

town limits and shot. Is there a Yiskor book for the city? Any direction
you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Righteous Gentile Candidates #general

Louis A Fine <loufine@...>
 

Dear Genners,

A short time ago one of my neighbors told me of her family's activities
during WWII.
The family consisted of Auke HARTSTRA, his wife Anna KOEN, their
daughters Anna Maria b.1920 and my neighbor Tine (now Olson) b.1930.

Two houses away >from the Hartstra family, at either #50 or 42
Voortsweg, Enschede Netherlands, lived a Jewish family, named Ausen
(Aussen). The family consisted of the senior Aussen, their son and his
wife and their toddler/preschooler, red-haired son.
One day members of the Resistance told the Hartstras the Nazis were
coming that night to round up Jews and for them to warn the Ausens. The
Ausens refused to believe them, but Tine requested that the little Ausen
boy be allowed to stay in their home *one* night. Permission was granted.
Circa 3 or 4 am the Nazis came in trucks and took the Ausen family, never
to return. Some of the Hartstra neighbors were Nazi collaborators and
they feared for the boy's life. Consequently he was taken by the
Resistance to live with a farm family outside of Enschede. Tine believes
he was probably adopted.
Another part of the Hartstra's history relates another set of
neighbors. Late 1942 or early 1943 the Hartstra's moved to Delden. Next
door lived a family named COHEN: Mr/Mrs. COHEN and the husband's brother.
The Cohen's ran a butcher shop in town. Again the Resistance told the
Hartstra's the Nazis were about to round up Jews. The Cohens listened to
the Hartstra's and went to live with the mother of Tine's
brother-in-law: Mr/Mrs Henry LAST ala Anne FRANK. Last in Dolphia & ran
a barber shop in Glanerbrug.
The Hartstras took as much of the Cohen's equipment and furnishing as
they could, stored them their attic and post war, the Cohen's recovered
their goods. As a result, the Cohen's were able to re-open their butcher
shop in Delden. their daughter married and the couple ran a butcher shop
in Hengelo.
In my opinion, the Hartstra family, Tine being the sole survivor,
deserves to be awarded the status of Righteous Gentile. However the above
requires substantiation and validation >from someone other than Tine. Is
there anyone out there who knows anything about these families?


If so, please contact me privately ASAP.

Re: Immigration to USA through Canada #general

In addition to the St. Albans lists already mentioned, NARA also has some
indexes of crossings >from Canada to Detroit.

The Canadian Archives has both passenger arrival lists and immigration
cards for each immigrant. If you can determine the date of arrival (maybe
from naturalization documents?), you may be able to find both. My
grandfather arrived in Quebec, sailing >from Antwerp in 1920. I requested
films >from the Canadian Archives by interlibrary loan. This worked out
well, and I was able to find both the passenger list and immigration card.

I am looking for the descendants of the Pole Issa Silverman (born Harris?)
and his wife Annie (nee Goldstein) who were both born in around 1865.
(Interestingly Issa's brother Morris married Annie's sister Sarah).
Their children included David Silverman and Nathan - and I am looking for
descendants of their children who, if they are still alive, will be aged
around 85.
Their names are Sammy, Sidney, Pearl and Sadie Silverman.
Thanks you,

Crypto Jews of Puerto Rico #general

NICOLE WEISSMAN <nweissman@...>
 

I am researching the names Mendoza, DeMendoza and Rodriguez in Puerto
Rico. Family lore has it that my father was of Jewish descent but I have
not been able to verify this. My grandfather, who I was told was >from
Seville, came to Puerto Rico in the late 1800's. He married into the
Rodriguez family and had five sons and one daughter. The family was
supposedly associated with the town of Rio Grande, P.R. but I have not
been able to find any original documents. My father married a woman whose
last name was Franco Villanueva y Calderon. That family might have come

from Venezuela originally.
