I have just received the SS Application form for a Ben LEIDER, born
1894 in Galica/Austria the town name looks like Zleczow. If anybody is
researching him or this family, please write me & I will send it. The Ben
Leider whose papers I thought were sent for had a sister Sarah & their parents
were Edel & Leah LEIDER, any information about them is greatly appreciated.

While going through still another box, I found an empty envelope >from
about 1947 addressed to my grandfather who came to the US >from Romania
about 1900, leaving a brother behind in Galati (Galatz).

The preprinted return address is: WATSON & YOUELL
SHIPPING AGENCY LTD,, GALATZ ( typed in is the word "Roumania")

Has anyone ever heard of this company? SInce that return address is
printed in English, is it safe to assume that this was not a Romanian
company, but rather a company that simply had a branch in Galatz?

Re: Budapest Cemeteries #hungary

Michael Fener
 

I heard some very alarming news yesterday >from my sister-in-law who lives
in Budapest. She said some of the cemeteries are being disturbed in order
to make room for the newly dead. She said her mother's gravesite was gone.
I was in Budapest over the summer and did not see any evidence of this.
What I did notice, at the Kozma street cemetary, was that there seemed to
be an ongoing restoration process. Most of the cemetary had been in ruins
since after WWII, but slowly the trees and brush were being cut back
section by section. Unfortunately, many stones were gone and had been
missing since the War. I saw nothing that indicated new burials were taking
place on sites of previous ones.

Hope that helps.

Yad Vashem's name project #hungary

Margalit & Alon Modai <modai@...>
 

This is what Ha'Aretz wrote about Yad-Vashem's project:

Tadiran, Manpower to computerize Yad Vashem names

By Avi Blizovsky, Ha'aretz Correspondent

Tadiran Information Systems, of the
Tadiran group, won the contract to computerize the names
of the Holocaust victims collected by Yad Vashem - The
Holocaust Martyrs'and Heroes' Remembrance Authority in
its Hall of Names. The multinational Manpower group will
provide staff for the project as a subcontractor.

The computerization project was ordered by the Independent Committee of Eminent Persons under the chairmanship of Paul Volcker, which is
looking into dormant accounts at Switzerland's banks. The
Volcker committee has committed $8 million for its
implementation. The project involves scanning the names
of recorded Holocaust victims and entering them
into a database. These names will be cross-referenced with the
names of dormant account-holders in Swiss banks, to
locate accounts that belonged to people killed in the Holocaust.

Yad Vashem board chairman Avner Shalev said the organization has collected over 3 million victim names on
record. Some 2 million of the names are documented on
Pages of Testimony. The rest appear on lists collected from
sundry sources in Europe.Meanwhile, Manpower has already begun
to enlist people to carry out the project. Those
involved in the project believe it will require about 1,000
people to carry it out: 700 typists, 120 linguists, 50
managers, and about 130 clerks.

Israel Singer, the General Secretary of the World Jewish
Congress; Zvi Barak, co-chairman of the Executive of the
World Jewish Restitution Organization; and Avraham Burg,
chairman of the Jewish Agency, were actively involved in
the consolidating the agreement.

In addition to the lists mentioned, Yad Vashem keeps at
least 10,000 other lists stored in its
archives, which contain millions of names. The organization
says it wants to computerize these lists too, in order
to create a central"mega-database" of Jewish Holocaust
victims.
