Re: Research question re: HENRAJCH and LEWKOWICZ family, Dzialoszyn, Poland #general

Dzialoszyn/Zaloshin is notoriously difficult to research. The town itself
was on the border between Prussia and Poland and formed a significant part
of the 1st line of defence against the Nazi invasion. On the first day of
the war (1 September 1939), and near to the town, the Nazi General Dilltal
was killed and in retribution the Nazis obliterated the town (carpet bombing
it three times that day) and leaving only the post office and town bridge
intact. In consequence most locally stored records appear to have been
destroyed and, according to both JRI Poland and the Miriam Weiner Foundation
only those records >from 1807 to 1837 appear to have survived. We do think
that further records may exist as unindexed records held at the State
Archive (AGAD) in Lodz; but if such do exist they do not seem to be
generally available. If Simone has found further records that are accessible
that is a huge achievement and it would be invaluable to know what they are
and where they might be located.

David Laskin: How and Why I Wrote My Family Story

"The Family: A Journey into the Heart of the 20th Century" is the story
of three branches of my mother's family. One branch emigrated to the
U.S. at the end of the 19th century, went into business, and founded
the fabulous Maidenform Bra Company. Another branch went to what was
Palestine in the 1920s, making the desert bloom as idealistic Zionist
pioneers. The third branch remained behind in present-day Belarus and
Lithuania, perishing in the Holocaust.

I am a professional author, writing history that reads like novels,
and I will share how I wove in novelistic detail to bring my family
story to life, while still adhering strictly to the factual record.
Where does "creative nonfiction" cross the line into fiction? How
does one breathe life into seemingly dry data? How does a writer make
ordinary people embody history?

David Laskin: The Research Behind The Family

The second lecture will describe and analyze the genealogical research
that went into the book. I was a total newbie at genealogical research
when I began and it took me some time to work up the nerve to go on
Ancestry.com. On my first foray, I entered "Sam Cohen, Brooklyn, NY",
my maternal grandfather, and Ancestry came up with half a million
matches! I'll start by describing how I learned to navigate Ancestry
and quickly filled in the entire family tree.

Holocaust research proved to be more challenging. Initially, I assumed
I would learn very little about the relatives who perished, but was
surprised by some important discoveries: Working at Yad Vashem and the
US Holocaust Memorial Museum yielded important details, including the
fate of the last European member of my family - a sixteen year old
boy who perished at the slave labor camp Klooga in Estonia. Additional
information was gleaned at the Ghetto Fighters' Kibbutz in Israel,
which maintains another important archive of Holocaust-related material.

David Laskin Bio
David Laskin was born in Brooklyn and raised in Great Neck, New York.
I grew up hearing stories that my immigrant Jewish grandparents told
about the "old country" (Russia) that they left at the turn of the
last century. How I wish I had recorded and video-taped every one of
their memories.

An avid reader for as long as I remember, I graduated >from Harvard
College in 1975 with a degree in history and literature and went on
to New College, Oxford, where I received an MA in English in 1977.
After a brief stint in book publishing, I launched my career as a
freelance writer. In recent years, I have been writing suspense-
driven narrative non-fiction about the lives of people caught up in
events beyond their control, be it catastrophic weather, war, or
genocide. My 2004 book The Children's Blizzard, a national bestseller,
won the Washington State Book Award and the Midwest Booksellers
Choice Award, and was nominated for a Quill Award. The Family was
also won the Washington State Book Award.

I write frequently for the New York Times Travel Section, and I
have also published in the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal,
the Seattle Times, the Jewish Daily Forward, Hadassah Magazine,
Jewish in Seattle and Seattle Metropolitan.

Jean Unger: An Introduction to Guided Autobiography: Bring Your History
to Life

This presentation will provide an introduction to Guided Autobiography
classes. Love to write? Struggle to write? It doesn't matter! This

Autobiography classes and give you a taste of how it feels to

wanted to put your stories down on paper and share them, come and see
why this class is for you!

Jean Unger Bio

Jean Suffin Unger is a certified Guided Autobiography facilitator
through the Birren Institute. Her love of writing and hearing stories
led her to seek work helping people reflect on their lives and share
their life stories with others. She is now conducting classes, and
is seeing firsthand the positive impact they are having on people's
lives. Her professional history includes writing for the fitness
industry, working as a medical software trainer, public relations
and veterinary assistant, to name a few. She lives in Erie with her
husband Michael and their dog. A New York transplant, she loves the
Colorado lifestyle.

Searching for name and address Shanghai, China #general

Rose
 

Dear Genners

I'm searching for the name of the Chinese man who purchased our family home
in Shanghai, China in 1948. At the time the address was 54 Ward Road,
Hongkou near Zhoushan Road but is now known as 54 Changyang Lu (Road) and is
located near the Jewish Refugee Museum at 62 Changyang Lu. In 2003 when my
brother visited Shanghai the Chinese man was 84 and still living at the same
address.

Is anyone planning to visit Shanghai in the near future? If so I would
greatly appreciate it if they could make enquiries on my behalf.

Please respond privately.

citing your sources and making decisions about media snips and images.

Requirements: Students must have done enough research to be ready to
write. Students should have access to a genealogical software program.

Students must have 8-10 hours per week to study the assignments, write
their reports and interact with the instructor. To meet the needs of

Torah from Wiesenfeld, Bavaria, Germany - STERN family #general

Susan Edel
 

I wonder if anyone can help me. I have been asked to help friends trace a
Sefer Torah that was saved by their grandmother Mathilde STERN nee SICHEL
on crystal night, November 1938. The Torah scroll was given to a Catholic
family for safekeeping during the war, in Wiesenfeld.

Hugo and Mathilde STERN asked their neighbor to please give the Scroll to
the first Jew they met after the war, should they, the Stern family, not
survive.

It would appear that the Catholic neighbors kept their promise and handed
the Sefer Torah to an American Rabbi who was with the troops who liberated
Wiesenfeld in 1945, saying that they felt the Scroll had protected them
throughout the war, during the bombing.

Does anyone know which US troops liberated Wiesenfeld or where this Sefer
Torah may have ended up?

Hoping very much that someone may be able to help me.

I wonder if anyone can help me. I have been asked to help friends trace a
