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

I don't know if I am confused, angry or upset. Why must I see a movie on Holocaust denial
when I know full well that a holocaust of European Jewry transpired during WWII? As a son
of a parent who survived the Holocaust in Slovakia, do I need to see a movie on a fictional
concept dredged up by neo Nazis and anti-Semites? I don't get it.

Dear Researchers and Family History Hobbyists,

Today I ask you all again for your valuable assistance.

The Jewish Community (IKG) Nuremberg owns the so called Stuermer or Streicher
Library, a collection of approximately 10,000 stolen books by the Nazis. To
restore the library to its rightful owners or their descendants is of special
interest to the IKG. Right at the outset I would like to stress that the
restitution is free of charge.

Several books could be restored because of a publication of a list of previous
Austrian owners in September 2015.

A complete list robbed victims you will find at the following link:
http://www.genteam.at/index.php=E2=80=A6

The list inclusive book notes can be viewed free of charge, no registration is
necessary.

Since provenance research is mainly family research, I beg of you for your
assistance in this very important matter.

Attached below is a letter >from Magister Leibl Rosenberg, the representative of
the city of Nuremberg for the collection of the IKG (Jewish Community) and ask
you to contact him personally with any and all research findings and questions:
Leibl.rosenberg@stadtnuernberg.de

Looted books Not Only >from Austria in the Collection of the Jewish Community

On March 12, 1938 Nazi Germany brought Austria home into the Reich (realm) by
annexing the country. With it began a terrible history of suffering for the
victims of the Nazis: Jewish people, free masons, Sinti and Roma, priests and
believers of diverse Christian Denomination, representatives and exponents of
the labor movement. They were disenfranchised, humiliated, persecuted, arrested,
robbed, expelled, and assassinated. Favored objects of the new masters' desires
were the properties and cultural commodities of any kind: paintings, sculptures,
images, manuscripts, writings, archival materials, art wares, tools and
instruments, stocks, motor vehicles, furniture and usable items of any kind. One
does not go wrong in the assumption that there had to have been about 600,000
art works and millions of publications confiscated >from all over Europe.

A portion of the stolen books >from 514 Austrian towns and other localities in
Europe reached by still obscure ways into the ownership of the infamous
Gauleiter (head of a Nazi administrative district) and so-called Frankenfuehrer
(Franconian leader) Julius Streicher in Nuremberg. Remnants of the books remain
to this day in the collection of the Jewish Community -IKG (previously the
collection was also known as the Stuermer or Streicher Library) in the Nuremberg
city library at the Educational Campus. This collection of nearly 10,000 books
is the property of the Jewish Community in Nuremberg and was given, years ago,
on permanent loan to the city library. The IKG, owners and proprietors of the
collection, saw and see themselves as custodians, and they have begun, with
great effort, the tedious task of finding the former owners and the restitution
of the writings to their legal successors. So far, more than 700 writings were
returned to approximately 170 persons or entities in ten different countries.
This work is done pro bono; therefore, it is done free of charge for the
previous owners, their families and rightful owners, and the city of Nuremberg
will pay the postage to forward restored works.

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.

The restitution of robbed cultural goods requires provenance research; in turn,
it cannot be successfully made without family research. The acting
representative of the city of Nuremberg for the Collection IKG therefore turns
today, a good year after sending out the first search list, once more to the
genealogists and historians >from the staff and user circle at www.GenTeam.eu to
request instructions, reference information, and research result for locating
former owners and their heirs or legal successors. The list published here still
contains some inaccuracies and misattributions, traces and fragments despite
many of years of careful efforts to avoid errors. It is a matter of 879 former
owners of 238 known cities throughout Europe. A list as this one, how could it
be any different--a document of mass lootings that often lead to mass murders!
Many years, actually decades have passed since this terrific raid; but it does
not alter the iniquity and the suffering of the affected. Please examine whether
you can shed some light in the dark, so that in this way the victims will befall
just a little justice. The first Search List with Austrian victims of these
robberies at GenTeam lead to the restitution of written works and to the
clarification of dozens of former owners. For this and for the great and
selfless helpfulness of our GenTeam friends is expressly and warmly thanked!
