Re: Red Star Line - Ship company #general

A search of online Morton Allan Directory at
http://www.cimorelli.com/vbclient/shipmenu.htm did not result in any "hits"
for a ship named Sislocz (you might want to do the search with some variants
if there's some doubt as to the spelling of the name). For some general
information about the Red Star Line and its history, see

I graduated >from High School with a girl named Lynn Mink in 1965. I did not
know her well as there were nearly 1000 kids in our class. I don't remember
Mink being a common Jewish name while growing up in Phila. I will ask if
anyone knows what happened to Lynn.

German Occupation of Lithuania, 1915-1918 #lithuania

Susan R. Kathren <kathren@...>
 

My father, born ca. 1907, was a boy in the city of Kalvarija, Lithuania,
during the German occupation in WWI. I recall him telling me that the
relatively short period (a few months) during which Kalvarija was
occupied by the Germans was actually fairly good. He noted that the
Germans organized the town government and especially the schools, and
that in those months times were relatively good. He learned German, got
reasonable schooling, and observed that while the German occupiers were
harsh, they apparently tried to ensure that the people were fed and that
life was normalized. He never indicated that there was any anti-Semitism
on the part of the Germans at this time. Note that he emigrated to the
US in 1920, so did not live in Lithuania very long.

Hope these recollections are useful to someone.

Subject: Travelling in Belarus #lithuania

GenieMona@...
 

Having traveled in Belarus four years ago, I would suggest EXTREME caution. I
was in Brest, Pruzhany and Malcz. Sanitation is not a factor, it doesn't
exist. Food was difficult to get. I am talking about eating a single hard
boiled egg. Plan on bring your own food. In SW Belarus, they are still
Communists, with Lenin statues everywhere. Transportation is not good either.
When crossing the border >from Poland, you can be stuck for days. They don't
need a reason.
Be careful what you photograph. I was almost assulted for taking a picture
of the market. You will see large amounts of Vodka being consummed >from early
morning.
Remember, the government is not friendly to America. There isn't a US Embassy
to contact in SW Belarus.

Would I go again, NO, but was I glad that I did-Yes!

Evacuation of Jews in WWI #lithuania

Noyma Appelbaum <noyma@...>
 

In regard to the recent questions and comments about evacuation of Jews
from Lithuania in World War I, I can state the following. My father told
me that his father was one of hundreds or thousands of Jews transported
by the Russians >from Lithuania during World War I. My grandfather's home
town was Zagare. He was sent to Nijni-Novogorod in central Russia in
1916 and died there of typhus shortly after arrival. The Jews were
transported in freight cars(sound familiar?).Conditions were unsanitary
and otherwise unhealthful. Disease spread through the uprooted Jewish
population and many died. Apparently, the Russians considered the Jews
who lived near the German border as a very unstable element and
constituted a threat to Russian military concerns. It is no secret that
the Jews hated the Czar. They favored a German presence at the time
because of the Czar's deliberate anti-semitic policies. My father, who
came to the U.S. in 1911, obtained his information >from family and
friends in Zagare.
