I want to thank Rob Kuijsten for informing us about hid usenet search
site. I just tried it, and found a posting to JewishGen in answer to a
question I had asked a couple of years ago - and apparently I had missed
the posted answer (computer glitch or something!). Also found loads of
other messages on one name I was searching. Thanks, Rob.

DAVID & RAPAPORT #hungary

Roberta Solit <rsolit@...>
 

I know this is a long-shot, but perhaps someone in this group could provide
some help-

Raisa RAPAPORT, born between 1893-early 1900's near Nagy Szollus
(Vinogradov) married a man named DAVID (this might have been his surname).
They had two children, a son and a daughter. The daughter, Machlech
survived the Holocaust and was living in Bratislava after the war.
I'm looking for any information on Machlech and will take any suggestions
on how to persue this search.

Re: Slovak records goldmine deciphered #hungary

korman3 <korman3@...>
 

It is remarkable what records survive.

What I have is the military records of my grandmother's youngest
brother, Markus Roth. They contain the entire history of his military
training, his "grades" in artillery school, limited personal
information, opinions of his personality in general and his general
capability as a soldier, etc. It also reflects where he was posted and
to what towns he went while he was on furlough. After the Hungarians
took back the SE part of Slovakia in 1939, he was discharged >from the
army, stripped of his rank and sent to labor camps. By 1942 he was in
Auschwitz. The Czech military apparently didn't know this until 1949
because in 1945 they restored him to his rank and put him on military
reserve. By 1947 they had decided he was missing, and in 1949 got some
sort of information that led them to believe that he was killed in
Auschwitz in 1942.

The couple who translated the documents for me are elderly and Slovak.
They told me some interesting things that I didn't know. For example
that towards the end of the war in eastern Slovakia, the Slovaks finally
decided to form partisan units and fight the Germans. They were armed by
the advancing Russians and took to the hills to fight. Apparently young,
able bodied, army trained, Jews were sent to join them. Casualties were
high.

I wrote to the Czech archive in Prague initially. They transferred the
letter to the Military Historical Institute in Trnava. I would suggest
sending requests for information in that manner, since it does not seem
that the archive in Trnava deals in english. However, the address in
Trnava is:

Vojensky HIstoricky Ustav
Vojensky historicky archiv
Trnava, Republic of Slovakia

My request was received in August in Prague, and my documents were
received here in late October. That's pretty good service.

Research in Romainia and Ukraine #hungary

David and BethLong <dnblong@...>
 

Dear List,

I had a problem with my e-mail files last week, and lost some
correspondence. I know there was one person who wrote me twice about
research in Szatmar, and I did not respond; please write me one more time.

Otherwise, I think I have responded to everyone who wrote me, but if not,
please write again.

Thanks to all of you.
