The Terezin Memorial Book includes people transported >from Bohemia and

Terezin it does not include the names of the people on them nor their fates.

Can anyone tell me where these are listed?

They do indeed, and though I've never done research there on genealogical
issues, the folks I *have* worked with are very friendly and helpful, and
used to dealing with the "yiddish-impaired".

1,500 Polish names #general

Hafcjf@...
 

Hi there! I'd like to recommend a book as a possible resource. Survivors
of the Holocaust in Poland, by Lucjan Dobroszycki, who is associated with
YIVO includes the names of approximately 1,500 Polish children who
survived the war. Some were hidden by Christian families and some were in
orphanages. In some cases, there's scant information, but in other
instances it lists surname, given name, year of birth, name of parents and
last known residence.

While not every library will have this book, it should be readily
available through inter-library loan. If anyone would like more
information, contact me privately.

The name Tikla #general

Udi Cain
 

Dear Judith,

It's very interesting that a religious cousin of mine who was given the
name Judith, told me that she found out that Judith (Jewish female) is very
popular amongst Christians. Why do I raise that fact? Because in the first
century A.D. a woman that had anything to do with the beginning of
Christianity, had to be either a pagan name, or Jewish name. The name is
not common amongst us Jews, but it can be of Jewish origin. our Tikla's
G'grandfather was the "Dayan" Rabbi Wreschner, who is considered as the
"right hand" of Rabbi Akiva Eiger. Although they turned secular in her
generation, they would have used a Hebrew origin name (I am 99% sure that
her local name was Trude). So just like Judith who killed Holparness (I
hope I spell it right), Thekla became a popular name in Christian circles.

Regards, Udi Cain.


Dear Udi,
Thekla was a disciple of St. Paul
in the first century, and is considered the first female Christian martyr!
The Byzantine (Gk.Orthodox) churches flourished in the Ukraine, which
would certainly explain why Thekla was a big name there.

Success Story - Family Tree of Jewish People #belarus

David M. Fox <fox@...>
 

Today I received an email message >from someone who found me through the
Family Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP)
http://www.jewishgen.org/gedcom/. The woman indicated that she was sure
that the Rosa PLOTKIN that I had on my family tree was her grandmother
and asked me to contact her. Within minutes of receiving her message, I
called Anna who lives about 60 miles away >from me. She explained the
family connection in some detail on the phone. Her grandmother and my
great grandfather were sibblings. Her branch of the family did not
immigrate to the USA in the late 1800's as by great grandfather did.
Anna told how the family moved >from Mogilev/Gomel to Moscow prior to WW
II and managed to survive the Holocaust. She spoke of family members
who perished in the Stalin purges. Anna and her family, including her
mother, came to the United States only six years ago. To say the least,
we were both very excited at making a family connection after a
separation of 100 years. My hands are still shaking as I type this
message. Anna promised to get with her mother tonight and start writing
down everything they could remember about their family. We are also
planning a family get together very soon.

I had no documents on the PLOTKIN branch of the family. The information
was provided to me in a video taped interview of my 89 year old great
aunt back in 1989. Based on her oral history, I added the names to my
family tree which is posted to the FTJP. Anna told me she just began
her family genealogy search today and found an immediate connection.

Needless to say, I am very anxious to meet Anna and her family and fill
in 100 years of family history. If you have not posted your family tree
to the FTJP, you are missing potential opportunities to make family
connections. If there is anyone on this discussion group with PLOTKIN
connections to Gomel and Mogilev, please contact me via private e-mail.
Maybe we can find some more connections.

Rzeszow PSA Initiative to Begin--Volunteers Needed #yizkorbooks

EDENSARA@...
 

Dear Friends and Researchers of towns in the Rzeszow PSA,

My name is Eden Joachim and I am the Archive Coordinator for the Rzeszow PSA
Initiative. I am seeking volunteers to be Town Leaders for the towns whose
records are to be part of this indexing project. Town Leaders will be
integral in the fund-raising aspect of this intiative. An inventory of the
records has been ordered by JRI-Poland, which will give us an indication of
the quantity of information available for indexing. We will NOT know the
costs involved until the inventory reaches JRI-Poland. At that time, a
"formal" announcement of the initiative will be announced, along with the
first request for funding.

The following towns and corresponding records are included in this project:

Niebylec

Sokolow Malopolski

Rzeszow

Tyczyn


This is a most important project for all researchers who have an interest in
the towns listed above. Except for a partial listing of births for the city
of Rzeszow covering the years 1842 through 1864, there are NO records on
JRI-Poland for these towns. The LDS (Mormons) has not filmed any records for
these towns. With over 310 listings for these towns in the JGFF, the
interest in this project should be overwhelming.

I hope all researchers with an interest in Rzeszow and the nearby towns will
participate in this project.

Sincerely,

Eden Joachim

Re: Yedwabne #general

Roberta Sheps <roberta_l_sheps@...>
 

Last week Lance Ackerfeld copied over to the Yizkor Project discussion
group a message he received >from a Polish man asking for someone to
write him, preferably in Polish, telling him what happened at Yedwabne
on 10 July 1941. He said he just couldn't believe it.

Basically, what happened was that the good citizens of the town
massacred the entire Jewish population, leaving only a very few
survivors, some of whose accounts of the event are told on the Yizkor
Book site.

Has anyone written to this man? I agree with Lance that it is important
that someone write to him. He really sounds desperate to know. He was
not born until 1963, so he can bear no guilt for the atrocity, but it
appears that his education has not encompassed acts that his
grandparents' generation committed.
