My parents were among the internees having escaped >from Vienna after the Anschluss.
My mother kept my father's beautifully illustrated letters, copies of which are now at USHMM,
Yad Vashem and Isle of Man Library.
We visited there in June.

Re: names index for 3 Badatelna registers of Ceska Lipa (Boehmisch Leipa) #austria-czech

Several weeks ago I posted the announcement below of an index of names
for three Badatelna registers of the Czech/Bohemian town of Ceska Lipa
(Boehmisch Leipa). Since then, I have added a lot more information to
the index to make it more easily useful. The expanded index is
available for now at http://homes.cs.washington.edu/~tompa/leipa/ . I
believe that these records will ultimately be incorporated into the
JewishGen integrated database.

In more detail, here is what I have added:

1. For every entry, I added the year and URL of the Badatelna page image.
2. For every birth entry, I added the names of the father and mother.
3. For every marriage entry, I added the record number, age, and spouse's name.

shortcomings. The birth register index is alphabetized by given name,
making it difficult to search for a particular surname. The marriage
registers index only the male names, so half the names that might be
of interest are missing. If you are looking for ancestral vital
records in Boehmisch Leipa, this index will make your life much
easier.

The index I have created contains more than 2000 names in total.

The film Denial - Did the Holocaust Occur #austria-czech

Tony Hausner
 

This is a one time posting to make sure everyone knows about this most important film.

See http://www.bleeckerstreetmedia.com/denial for more information and the trailer. Trailer can
be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYcx43AmAyY

"The whole world knows that the Holocaust occurred. Now she needs to prove it."

This film officially opens in NYC and LA on 9/30. In 10 other cities on 10/7 and more cities on
10/14. The schedule is at the Bleeker Street site above.


Given that Holocaust denial is such a major part of history, I felt it important that everyone
know. I apologize if others have already posted.

I have scheduled a preview in Bethesda, MD on 10/6 and have sold out one theater of 240
persons. We are looking into whether we will setup arrangements for another theater.


I have lots more info about the film, relevant literature, interviews, film reviews etc if interested.

Looted Books in Nuremberg - The Julius Streicher Collection - Books Not Only In Austria #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Jewish Community (IKG) Nuremberg owns the formerly known "Sturmer" or
"Streicher Library", today known as the Israeli Cultural Community-IKG, a
collection of approximately 10,000 books stolen by the Nazis.

IKG has a special interest in restoring the library to its rightful
owners. Restitution is free of charge. So far, more than 700 writings
were returned to approximately 170 persons or entities in ten different
countries.

It is very important to understand that the books are not only >from
Austria -- in fact the research of the provenance references in the
writings in 25 languages has resulted in over 2,200 former owners >from
localities in Europe and Overseas.

Three geographical focal areas have been crystalized: Nuremberg, Franconia;
Strasbourg, Alsace-Lorrain; and Vienna, Austria.

You might recall that last year I posted about this in September 2015
and some previous Austrian owners were "reunited" with their property.

A complete list of robbed victims is found at: http://tinyurl.com/hkcoka4
Original url:
http://www.genteam.at/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=150&Itemid=149&lang=en

As genealogists we know the importance of provenance research which relies
on family research. Therefore, your assistance in this matter is being
requested.

On the above-mentioned website is a letter >from Magister Leibl Rosenberg,
the representative of the city of Nuremberg for the IKG, who is asking for
our collective assistance in identifying the original owners of the 10,000
books.

Please share this email with your members, place it in your society
newsletters and Facebook pages. Today, I learned within hours of
GenTeam placing the notice on their Facebook page they solved a case in
Israel and one in Warsaw.

Please contact Leibl.rosenberg@stadtnuernberg.de with any questions or
research findings.

Anyone heading to Chambers Street? #general

Paula Blank
 

I had always been told that my great grandparents, Richard LANGER and
Fannie PETERFREUND, had lost two children as infants. I just found
the record of one of them - George Langer (born Aug 22, 1897 -
Manhattan 35773). I believe I found his death record (May 20, 1901 -
Manhattan 15721). If anyone is heading to Chambers Street, I would
be greatly appreciative for the information of these two certificates.

Thanks so much,
Paula Blank

Shana Tova from the Lodz Registration Cards Extraction Team - Update! #general

Margalit Ashira Ir
 

Dear Researchers,

As we approach Rosh Hashanah 5777, on behalf of the Lodz Registration
Cards Extraction Team, we want to wish you all a very happy and sweet
New Year.

We began extracting the names of Jewish family members in February of
this year. To date, we have reviewed more than 21,000 scans and extracted
the names, birth dates and birth cities of nearly 20,000 Jewish souls who
were recorded in Lodz during the period of 1916-1921. It is with
gratitude that we thank our volunteers who sit at their computers for
many hours a day reading, researching, identifying and recording Jewish
names, towns, marital status and professions. These are the people who
work diligently - driven by what our volunteers call "holy work", "G-D's
work", or simply "we need to memorialize" our brothers and sisters who
perished during the Shoah. Each name we extract further diminishes the
Nazi's attempt at totally annihilating the Jewish people.

The resulting data will provide researchers and their families with
insight into the lives and movement of our people during this time frame
and will serve as valuable research and history of the Polish Jews in
Lodz.

Our volunteer team consists of Alesya in Russia, Fritz in Germany,
Yohannan and Fay in Australia, Billy and Duncan in Kenya, Miriam, Arye,
Zeev and Yehudit in Israel, David in Canada, and David, Yael, Walter,
Rochelle, Deborah, Dina and Karen in the United States. Yasher Koach
to these angels in the background, please send them a shout out, via
me, with your thanks for their incredible work.

We expect to upload the first group of 20,000 names by end of this year.

If you wish to have your family's name extracted quickly, for a qualifying
contribution of $54 per family name, a customized worksheet will be made
available to you.

We anticipate receiving additional scans >from the Polish State Archives
in the near future. The review of the estimated 175,000 names we have
today will likely take several years. We need more volunteers to help us
expedite the project. Please contact me to become part of this dynamic
team.

We wish you all a Shana Tova v'metuka, may you all be graced with
happiness, good health, peace and the connection to lost families.

that was born in Lithuania, left to Uzbekistan, joined the Soviet army

I've previously posted this answer to questions about Red Army
soldiers who were killed in action:

There is a four volume "Kniga Pamiati", a memorial book, published
in the 1990s, that lists Jewish servicemen killed in action while
serving in the Red Army. This book was published by the Jewish War
Veterans Association in Moscow. Go to your library and do a catalog
search for "Kniga Pamiati" and the books you are looking for will be in
the list of Soviet memorial books. You then have to order the book on
interlibrary loan.

There are about 200 books with Kniga Pamiati in their titles. Most were
published in the 1990s and list Red Army soldiers >from a particular area,
who were killed in action in WWII. These books' contents are arranged
by Oblast (province) and Rayon (District, county)

If you know where you relatives were living prior to WWII, order the
Kniga Pamiati for that region. The regional kniga pamiati list name,
patronymic, civilian occupation, military rank, birthplace, death place,
Soviet nationality (Russian, Ukrainian, Jewish, Armenian ...), and death
mode (died of wounds, KIA, MIA) if this information was known to the
editors.

I know of relatives of mine who are listed as Jewish in the regional
kniga pamiati, but who do not appear in the Jewish kniga pamiati. I also
know of Jewish veterans who are listed in the Jewish kniga pamiati, but
who do not appear in the regional kniga pamiati.

You will have to learn to read the Cyrillic alphabet but this is not
difficult.

Emil (born 1881) and Isidor (1883) were born there, emigrated to the
USA about 1907 and lived in New York and Chicago. Around 1923 Isidor
returned to Russia with his wife Olga HAIDUKOU and children Michael,
Leta, William, Pauline and Peter. I have found the census records for
them in the US. I would like to find the birth records for Emil and Isidor

Trying to help Prisoner prove Jewish roots for religious rights #germany

Hi There,

My name is Jax Gill. I was raised Jewish, and I'm trying to help my partner
Kim Culotta help a prison pen pal named Michelle Angelina. She is
trans, this is not her birth name and my partner cannot recall if she
has sent us her birth name in the past, but we have sent her a letter
requesting it.

Michelle was raised Catholic by her adopted Catholic step-great-grandmother
and Jewish great-grandfather. That is until she found earth magic, Wicca
at the age of 13. She went to Hebrew school >from age 9-10. She is wanting
to further explore and honor her Jewish faith but the prison's rabbi is
requiring she prove her Jewish roots.

She has provided us with a list of ancestors who she knows to be
Jewish. Sifting through all these genealogy websites is quite
confusing, can anyone help us out? Below are the names that we know.

Mother: Carrie Grace BERGER - raised Jewish
Maternal Grandmother: Diane CERF - raised Jewish, US born, Polish Jew
and French (Alsace-Lorraine)
Maternal Great-Grandmother: ___ CERF - likely Protestant, is this an
issue in proving her Jewish roots?
Maternal Great-Grandfather: Robert CERF - raised Jewish, French
(Alsace-Lorraine) and Polish Jew

Maternal Grandfather: Frederick BERGER - raised Jewish, US born,
German (Berlin) Jew, studied at Yeshiva Torah Vadath

Thank you for your time, Jax Gill, Arcata, California
