Concentration Camp Liberations #general

Drosner@...
 

/
I received a piece of information about family members yesterday that says:

"Died of Typhus, 1943, at (unreadable) Camp, the camp was liberated just a
few weeks later"

And also that her son, age 3 at the time was found at liberation and taken
first
to Sweden. I believe that this person now lives in Zurich, and I am
trying to track
him down...

However, my question is Which camps were liberated in 1943 (or very early
44)?
I thought the camps didn't get liberated until late 44 and into 45.....

Anyone have a chronological list of camp liberations?

Dear Mr. Gross,
YOU ARE TOTALLY WRONG.
My mother and I spent fifty-three years looking for any survivors of her
family, Gottesdiener of Poland, without success. We wrote every
organization you mention and I even joined a genealogical grouop. Nothing.
She died ten years ago and I am keeping my deathbed promise to continue the
search.

Last week someone told me about this website.I put on an inquiry. I had
more than 40 personal responses with lists of names and addresses of
possible Gottesdiener relatives in Krakow, Germany, London, Israel and the
U.S. The names are still coming in. I am in the process of writing
everybody and will keep jewishgen posted. Already I have found a very
distant cousin. I have had more responses in less than a week than in more
than half a century.

Do not, I pray you, discourage anyone >from using this marvelous internet
vehicle as a means of BOTH genealogical finds and relative reunions. The
people on this discussion group are among the kindest, most erudite and
helpful I have ever known and I am a senior citizen.

additional Yizkor Book Project entries #belarus

Subject: Translation Project is one year old
From: Martin Kessel <mkessel@mediaone.net>

It's hard to believe that it has been only one year since we put our first
Yizkor Book translation on the web. October 6, 1997 was the date we
annouced the translation of Ivano-Frankivsk (Stanislawow) chapter from
Pinkas Ha-kehillot. Today we have 41 translations online, and 10 more are
in hands of our four HTML volunteers -- giving us more than 50 translations
in our first year. Most of these are documents that were never previsouly
available to the English-speaking world. A heartfelt congratulations to
Joyce Field, our tireless Translations Manager, who has kept us on track,
pushing donors, copyright holders, translators, volunteers, and myself to
keep up with the her pace and make this material available as quickly as
possible.

Today we put three new translations online:

- Nuremberg, Germany - database of Victims of Shoah >from a forthcoming
book published by the Nuremberg City Archives. Described in detail a
separate announcement >from Joyce.

- Delyatin, Ukraine - unpublished list of Soviet citizens of Deliatyn shot
by German-Fascist invaders, >from documents of a Soviet Commission for the
investigation of military crimes 1944-46. The fifth of a series of lists
transliterated by Alexander Dunai and contributed by Mr. Dunai, Joyce
Field, and Susannah Juni.

- Krynki, Poland - Necrology >from Pinkas Krynki. The first of a number of
lists provided to us by Ellen Sadove Renck and the Grodno Genealogy Group.

In addition, Joel Alpert, has recently expanded two of his yizkor book web
pages:

- Dokshitsy, Belarus - now includes many translated chapters, in addition
to name lists >from Dokshitzy Yizkor Book.

- Kybartai, Lithuania - numerous photographs and facsimiles added to Yizkor
book translation.

All of our translations are accessible from
<http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html>. Our thanks to all who
have helped with this important work.

My 2 cents if they are worth something ;)
