The Last Days #hungary

Aaron Rosenberg <a-j.rosenberg@...>
 

I got the opportunity to view the movie The Last Days today. It is a
powerful, but simply told, narration of the Holocaust in Hungary in the
last days of WWII. The story is told through the first-hand narrations of
5 survivors. One of these is Tom Lantos, >from California, the only
Holocaust survivor who has served in the U.S. Congress. Randolph Braham,
who has compiled a history of the Jews in Hungary and written a book about
the Holocaust in Hungary, also has some commentary in the movie. The towns
from which the narrators originated (if I got them right) are Polena
(Polyana), Ungvar (Uzhgorod), both in Carpatho-Ukraine, Sarvar, Szaszavo,
and Budapest (Lantos).

The director and the producers of this movie >from Steven Spielberg's Shoah
Foundation are to be commended. I hope this movie gets widely distributed
so that everyone has an opportunity to see it.

Searching ancestors of the following SCHNEIDER (also SZNAJDER or SZNEJDER)
siblings >from Lomza or nearby town in Lomza Guburnia, Poland:
Chaim, Dora (married Phillip Ortenberg >from Argentina), Eli (married Freda
Strauss), Ester (b 1888; married Izzy Greenberg), Sam & Isidore (1878-1958; my
grandfather). Most emigrated to New York City, Brooklyn, Los Angelos and in
Florida. The six siblings were the children of Joseph (Joszk,Yussel) Schneider

Alta, who also emigrated to NY.

Milton Friedman #hungary

Peter S. Spiro <peter.spiro@...>
 

I have been reading the autobiography of Milton Friedman, who was
briefly one of my teachers at the University of Chicago, just before his
retirment in 1977. (For those not familiar with him, he is generally
considered to be the most influential economist of the past 50 years.)
I would say without any doubt that he is the smartest man I ever met
(which is not to say that I absolutely agree with him on everything).

He mentions that his father Jeno Friedman was born in Beregszasz,
Hungary (now Berehovo in the Ukraine) in 1878, and his mother Sarah
Landau was born in the same town in 1881. His parents only spoke
Hungarian to each other when they did not want the children to
understand, so Milton never learned more than a few words of the
language.

Is anybody in H-SIG related to him?

LOEWY ancestral home? #hungary

Counsel17@...
 

I have a question regarding an exchange back in January:
<<Full Message Text
Date: Thu, 14 Jan 1999 19:00:40 EST
From: Susan703@aol.com
Subject: spitzer/weinberger
A am researching my family with the names Spitzer (>from Kisvarda) and
Weinberger, >from Tash. If anyone has any info for me, please contact me at
susan703@aol.com.

Thanks.

Susan

mod. I don't always check, but I did this time and couldn't find Tash in my
gazeteer. Could it be a town I know in the southern carpathian/nortwestern
part of Romania called Tosch. Problem is I can't find that spelling in the
gazeteer either. However, there is a Tosch(er) Rebbe - Rabbi Loewy whose
Chassidic community resides in a suburb of Montreal. LS>>

I am interested in the Rabbi LOEWY to whom Louis (presumably) refers. I just
posted a message on the SIG about LOEWY's >from some place called Santa Ana.
It sounds surreal to me that such a place could exist in Hungary. I was told
today by several cousins that their LOEWYs came >from Carpathia, Santa Ana or
Saint Anne. They didn't spell the name, and it is a mystery to me. I have
long sought the ancestral home of my LOEWY line, and wonder if this is it.
The other information (anecdotal) I have is that they came >from a long line of
rabbis. I trace back to Dov Ber LOEWY, who married Susil DEUTSCH. All we
know of them is that he came >from Hungary, and she >from Bohemia. Now we add
the other information, and hopefully there is some more precise location.
What do you think?

Trepecz #hungary

Aaron Rosenberg <a-j.rosenberg@...>
 

Trepecz is a village in eastern Slovakia about halfway between Stropkov and
Vranov. Does anyone know anything about it? Apparently the 1869 Census
exists for it. Where were the vital records registered, Sropkov? Vranov?

I ordered one of these films, which I hope will be received at my LDS

the LDS catalog, each film covers a time period, not a geographical
area. I should be reporting in a couple weeks.
