HISTORY TEXTS

Hungarian Jewish Studies (Two Volumes) Randolph Braham, NY 1966
A primer in Jewish History, compiled >from different authors and sponsored
originally by the World Federation of Hungarian Jews(currently rather
inactive).

The family tree of the Jews in Hungary (Erno Marton)-- also on LDS film
The settlement in Hungary-- continued 1735-1910 (Erno Laszlo)
Political aspects in modern times (Nathaniel Katzburg)
Destruction of Jews in Transylvania & Carpato-Ruthenia(Bela Vago/R.B )
Position of Jews after liberation(Ilona Benochovski)
Research Facilities in Hungary concerning the Destruction(Jeno
Levai)
Hebrew Poetry in Hungary(Moshe Carmilly)

The Jews of Hungary-- History, Culture, Psychology-- Raphael Patai. Wayne
State, 1996
A scholarly, intensive 700 page coverage of all elements of
Jewish life. Development >from early days to modern times.
Includes a story about the Khazars, famous Jews in history,
Jewish organization-- social and cutural, a handful of photos.
.
A History of Hungary. Peter Sugar, Indiana Univ, 1994
A relatively concise history of the Hungarian nation and country.
Helpful in understanding the broader terms and issues as they
relate to Jewish history in the Hungarian context. Different
authors cover the various chapters. It is a bit redundant and
confusing.

Bridging Three worlds-- Hungarian Jewish Americans 1848-1918, Robert
Perlman Univ Mass 1996?
Categorizes the emigrees as the 48ers, revolutionaries that were
running away after the failed war of liberation and the poor
masses that followed towards the end of the century. Describes
their places of settlement, their organizations and relationships
with non Jewish Hungarians. It is more helpful for understanding
their Americanization rather than learning a lot about the "old
country". Extensive bibliography.

Vanished Communities in Hungary-- A history of Zemplen Co.,Meir Sas.
Toronto 1986
An excellent overview of the Zemplen history. Contains numerous
quotes >from obscure archives.(Work was facilitated by Dr Hogye
from the Zemplen State Archives). Explains various taxation
relationships, economic life of the local Jews and their
political situation in relation to the nobles' ruling class. At
the end -- a brief description of almost every village in Zemplen

The modernization of agriculture, Hungary 1848-1975.Joseph Held, Columbia
U 1980
Various sections treating agrarian conditions and focusing on
the political movements and peasant organization. The first
section however, describes life, beliefs and social values of the local population, a microcosm in which our ancestors came to play.

FAMILY STORIES

In search of motherbook, Susan Rubin-Suleiman, Univ Nebraska, 1993
-A six month diary of an expatriate-intellectual's stay in
Budapest
-A story of typical Hungarian-Jewish family emigrating after WWII
-A guide to understand the split psyche of your immigrant family,
friend
-A study in self identity and feeling of 'home'.

The Reichmans. Anthony Bianco, Random House 1997
It is the fabulous story of the rise of the Reichman family to
riches and fame through their Toronto based Olympia and Tile. But
is also a rich and instructing story about life and enterpreneurship in the Hungary of the 1920's, the saga of a family running >from the ever expanding war to France and to Tangier. Convincing and riveting writing!

Where she came from. Helen Epstein, Little and Brown 1997
Author, daughter returns to her mother's city of Prague. Through
some relatives and friends of her parents she weaves a clear story of her family's life in this century. A move >from a village to a province and then to the capital city. Also is a good introduction to the history of the enlightened Czeh Republic(1918) under the leadership of Dr.
Massarik. It is rather strange to read about the lack of
anti-Semitism in the republic in an era when all surrounding countries are engulfed in it! Life in Theresienstadt and in post war Prague.

With my own eyes. Jacob Katz, Brandeis Univ, 1995
Candid autobiography, with the story line starting in a small
village, through studies in a Yeshiva setting and trough trials
and tribulations of the era between the wars in Hungary,
Germany and Palestine. Good reading on social arrangements in the
village, families hosting yeshiva students, life in a German
university and >from rough starts in the Holy Land of 1929 to the
head of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Extraordinary talent
and adaptation skill!

Journey to Vaja, Elaine KalmanNaves, Mcqill-Queen Univ,1995
Rich and authentic story of life on an rented estate in Szabolcs
county, of N E Hungary. As renters for three generations, the
author's family becomes to be recognized as the landowners
themselves. Through a multitude of detailed and colorful
characters the farm life becomes alive with economics,
competition, socialization, religious activities, and everyday
interaction with the peasant population. Estate life is
at the core of country living in Hungary and this is a great
illustration of it.

Wine and Thorns in Tokay Valley. Zahava Szasz Stessel, Fairleigh Univ,
1995
A cross between an Yzkor book for the town of Abaujszanto in
north of Hungary and a cut and dry sociological thesis
and the Jewish life in the place. It lends a rather
comprehensive understanding to the functioning of a village with
about 400 Jews. The book is built on interviews contains a list
of names of the town's residents in 1944 and a fair amount of photos
and rich bibliography..

Elojatekok egy Oneletrajzra. Hegedus Geza, Budapest , 1982? ( Prologue to
an
Autobiography)
An original way to tell a life story without voicing an opinion!
The author was a professor of drama at the University of Budapest
and good story teller. >from a family and a childhood in
Nagyvarad, through an endless procession of relatives and
friends in the Hungarian capital he captivates the reader with
historical events, personalities, and the national
Hungarian-Jewish character. In the period of between the
wars, Jews were motivated to prove that they had resided in
Hungary since 1848. This led to a flourishing of genealogy(of
course it was easier than now since all the registries were in
place) and among others the author who became an expert
in the area, has the most expansive family tree(a bit speculative),
going back to a Spanish Catholic!

LISTINGS and CENSII

Magyarorszag Nepsege II Jozsef alatt, Gustav Thirring- Budapest ,1938
(The people of Hungary under Emperor Joseph the 2nd,i.e. 1785)
Primarily a statistical compilation of the famous census data,
re-gathered >from a variety of archives. Consists of tabulation of
population break-downs by region, religion, occupation, social
status, density, gender etc. and a caption of what actual
material survived.(The archives in Csongrad still have
"ten humonguous volumes" of the original registration sheets).

However, there is also fascinating narrative that helps to
understand the political standing of the Austrian empire vs
Hungary vs the nobles vs the towns vs the Jews vs everybody and
everything else.

The reign of Joseph the 2nd 1780-1790, which ended with his
untimely death, is a continuation and reaction of his
mother's reign, Queen Maria-Theresa, who tried for 30
years, patiently and unsuccessfully, to transform her
empire into a more centralized, well functioning country,
similar to her arch-rival, Prussia, and against the
autonomy of the counties/nobles.

The Hungarian nobles resisted these efforts including the census
in question. Although not the primary reason, this
census, taken with the involvement of the army, led to
physical confrontations and brought Hungary to the brink
of revolt. This is why, after Joseph's death, most census
records were destroyed by the county officials, the nobles. Many of
king's edicts, including the edict directing the Jews to assume
last names, were ignored or reversed.

There are separate breakdowns for Jews, even in places where the
statistical significance is zero. (The Jews were only 1%
of the population overall). Although Maria-Theresa was very much
anti-Jewish, I wonder if the preoccupation with the Jewish
questions had something to do with the struggle against
the Turks/Non-Christians/Pagans and thus Jews.

Finally, this census is the precursor of the famous 1787 edict
that ordered Jews to adopt permanent family names. Also, for
anyone interested, in the whole Hungary(Jews No different) there
was a shortage of 100,000 women! Poor guys...

A negyvennyolcas Magyar Szabadsagharc es a Zsidok. Dr. Bela Bernstein,
Budapest 1898, 1937, 1998 -- The 1848 Magyar Struggle for Freedom and
the Jews
The book contains two sections: The first is a compendium of
heroics of Jewish participants in the 1848 war of independence,
the second is a list of roughly 2000 names of Jewish soldiers,
medics and officers. It appears that it was first published to
demonstrate the Jewish effort and patriotism to the Hungarian
cause.
The 1937 edition is clearly a political manifest in the wake of
the growing anti-Semitism and the "Jewish Laws". The 1998 edition
appears to be a centennial commemorative.

The war of independence(>from Austria) was an unsuccessful popular
uprising that quickly turned into a civil war and
subsequent defeat. No records per-se, survived the
defeat, and it took almost 20 years until life returned to normal
and the first attempt was made to gather war information.
The second attempt was in 1890 where a roster of the still
living was combined. After the revolution many were
executed, especially leaders, some emigrated to the U. S., some
even served in the Turkish army. About a thousand Jews
were especially punished by having to serve in the Austrian army.
One bonanza-- their names were recorded in the Austrian
Military Archives!

By the best estimates there were 15,000 Jewish participants in
the war, out of an army of 150,000. Their ratio of the total
population was 3%. Of the 15.000 names about 2,000 are
documented here. The Book is written in the 19th century flowery
style and is not clear enough by today's standards.

The four listings are:

Officers' listing in 1848
Officers alive in 1867, listed with a location, that appears to
be their residence
Veterans still alive in 1890 listed with a location, as above
The Austrian Military List, with place and date of birth. Most
useful

Two databases will appear on the Home page: 2,200 veterans sorted
by name and by location

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen How to Contact Gabriel BRAUNSTEIN #general

Jessica Schein <jesshschein@...>
 

When I ask for advice on researching my family in Argentina, people
always suggest I contact Gabriel Braunstein in Rochester. As it so
happens I am looking for Braunsteins of Argentina.

I tried to contact him over a year ago by e- and snall mail but never
receive a reply. Never got a returned message either. Anyone know how I
can contact him? Does he want to be contacted. Anyone know anyother
Braunsteins or Bronsteins >from Argentina (and not at BJ) Thanks.

GOLDMAN/Poland/Help with Town Locations #general

Michael L. Knox <lucky@...>
 

In going over the 1870 Federal Census page for Baltimore MD wherein I
finally succeeded in finding my great grandfather and his parents,
apparently all born in 'Poland' (no city is listed) according to the
entries, I have noticed others appeared to have been living in the house
with them at the time of the census.

The birth places for these other occupants (as best as I can make out
the scrolling writing) appear to be (a) Saxe Coburg and (b) Wurtemberg.

I believe 'Wurtemberg' is in Germany but I have no clue where or what
'Saxe Coburg' is or was.

Can some kind Genner help me with this?

TIA.....Mike Knox.....Memphis, TN.....lucky@bellsouth.net
