Moscow physicians #general

IsraelP <p2o5rock@...>
 

My grandmother had a sister, Mary ROSENBLOOM, born about 1902 in
Borisov - married name GOLDIN, we think, who was a physician in
Moscow. We don't know where she studied. Our last contact was in
1929 when she asked if someone could get her the modern invention she
had heard about where you can listen to a person's breating through
tubes put in the ears. We have an Moscow address for her then.

Is there any kind of medical association who might have some info on
her? We know nothing more than I have said here. no husband's name,
children etc.

*Re: Are "Kalman" and "Klemens" the same name? #general

Tom Venetianer <tom.vene@...>
 

Kalman, with an acute accent on both "a"s, is a quite common Hungarian
given name and it translates into Colman, an Irish saint. But, Kalman is
also a Hungarian surname, adopted by Jews. I myself know two Kalman
families living in Brazil.

Old constantine to Starokonstantinov #general

Evie000@...
 

Looking for anyone living here in the l920's to l940"s. Searching for family
that lived there at that time. Any small bit of information would be a help.
Even if i could get birth certificates or even death certificates that would
be a start. Cant believe that such a large family was all killed and that
someone didnt escape. Help if you can! Thanks....evie000@aol.com

Are "Kalman" and "Klemens" the same name? #general

Josephine Rosenblum <jorose@...>
 

On a tombstone in Lithuania, the father of the deceased woman (died 1907) is
shown as "Moshe Kalman". I assume that Kalman is a given name.

Her great-grandson in Israel (born in Lithuania and with limited English)
said her father's name is Moshe Klemens.

My question: Are Kalman and Klemens the same name, or is the man's name
Moshe Kalman KLEMENS.

Perhaps this additional information will be helpful: his daughter was born
around 1840 and is buried in Aleksotas, a suburb of Kovno-Kaunas.

By the way, the stonecarver made an error on this large, impressive stone,
inverting one digit and making it an impossible date. This was detected by
an orthodox rabbi in Cincinnati, who gave me the date if that digit were
flipped. This exact date was lated verified by my Israeli informant.

Thanks for any input.

re 1938 Nazi imposition of names on Jews #general

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

As an aside to Jeff Malka's original question about the
imposition of Jewish first names in Nazi Germany in 1938....

At about the same time, there was a report in one of the New
York newspapers that the Nazi's were requiring all Jews with the
surname FELDHERR to give it up since it was too high a title for
a Jew to hold. (Hitler later adopted the title for himself)

What the Nazi's didn't know was that a usually restrained
attorney in the Bronx named Lew FELDHERR acknowledged the decree
with the appropriate Bronx cheer.
