The film Denial - Did the Holocaust Occur #general

Tony Hausner
 

This is a one time posting to make sure everyone knows about this
most important film.

See http://www.bleeckerstreetmedia.com/denial for more information
and the trailer. Trailer can be seen at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYcx43AmAyY

"The whole world knows that the Holocaust occurred. Now she needs to
prove it."

This film officially opens in NYC and LA on 9/30. In 10 other cities
on 10/7 and more cities on 10/14. The schedule is at the Bleeker
Street site above.

Given that Holocaust denial is such a major part of history, I felt it
important that everyone know. I apologize if others have already posted.

I have scheduled a preview in Bethesda, MD on 10/6 and have sold out one
theater of 240 persons. We are looking into whether we will setup
arrangements for another theater.

I have lots more info about the film, relevant literature, interviews,
film reviews etc if interested.

Binyamina, Israel Old Cemetery: Seeking photographs of family plot #general

Carol Olmert
 

As a native of San Francisco, I am doing genealogical research on
my Olmert family in Israel. Several family members are buried in a
family plot in Binyamina, Israel. While I have visited the "old"
cemetery, I do not read or speak Hebrew which prevented me >from
locating it. I would kindly ask that someone take and email me some
digital photographs of the headstones such that I can translate the
birth and death information into English.

Their names:
1. Mordechai Olmert
2. Bella Wugman Olmert
3. Michal Olmert
4. Shura Olmert
5. Asya Olmert
6. Milika Olmert
7. Anyone else with the name Olmert

Thank you to Tony for sharing this.

My grandfather was interned in the Onchan camp >from Jul 1940-Sep 1941;
his letters to my grandmother are also at the USHMM and I've been
building a website with them:

If there are other descendants of "enemy alien" detainees on the Isle
of Man who would be interested in forming a SIG and sharing

Re: DNA testing in France #dna

Gary Mokotoff
 

Roberta Berman stated her U.S. family has had their DNA testing through
FTDNA. Which company should she use for her French relatives? Answer:
Continue using FTDNA. I have had them send kits to a number of countries
(even Ukraine) with no problem. By having your entire family with one
provider, it is easier to match results.

Re: DNA testing in France #dna

Beth Long
 

When testing people in Hungary and Romania (using FTDNA), I have the
kit mailed to me, then I mail it to the subject myself. I "re-package"
it, enclosing a return envelope (addressed to me). When I receive the
kit, I then mail it to FTDNA. This also allows me to fill out the form
for them (most of them do not speak English). If they would like you to
manage the kit for them, you can add your e-mail address on the top
line, with theirs below it. This will make you the "primary" e-mail,
which lets you recover a lost password, etc.

All the DNA testing for my family (all Jewish) in the US was done
through FTDNA.
I would like to test two people who married into my family and live in
Paris. They are not Jewish, but think they have Jewish ancestors.
Which company would you suggest and are there any problems sending kits
to Paris? Or perhaps there are other DNA companies or affiliates?

All the best,
Roberta Berman

Re: Help deciphering Hebrew abbreviations on tombstones #general

Shalom,
This is an answer to Carol Hoffman's mail, but I think it can be
useful to all the genners.
There is a site http://www.kizur.co.il/home.php (in Hebrew) very
useful to understand the meaning of Rashei Tevot (abbreviations).
It's easy to use, and I always find what I need.

I'm hoping someone can help me with translating abbreviations I have
found on tombstones in Lithuania. I have the abbreviations in Hebrew
characters and can send the short list to anyone who might be able to
help me with that. The challenge is not the dates but the
abbreviations describing the person or his/her situation.
