Re: Searching for Tombstone/Cemetery Record for Teraizah/Alice JUROWICZ, died 1933 in Budapest #hungary #records

Moishe,

There's a "friends of" website for the cemetery:
https://www.budapestjewishcemetery.com/

Google gives contact information for the cemetery as:
Address: Budapest, Kozma u. 6, 1108 Hungary
Phone: +36 1 262 4687

(That phone number may be from 2002, but I can find nothing newer.)

The Hungarian Wikipedia page for the cemetery says it's owned by the Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities; their website is: https://mazsihisz.hu/en

Simonia card? #yiddish #translation

David Brostoff
 

I was very grateful to receive a translation of Yiddish handwriting on a postcard I recently posted to ViewMate, but one expression is still puzzling me: "simonia card."
<https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM83656>

Does anyone know what this could mean?

Thank you,

U.S. Appeals Court Rules Spanish Museum May Keep Nazi Looted Art #announcements #holocaust

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously on August 18, 2020, that a Camille Pissarro painting a Jewish woman traded to the Nazis to escape the Holocaust in 1939 may remain the property of a Spanish museum that acquired it decades later. While the case has been making the rounds of Spanish and US courts for 20 years this may not be the last court that has a decision on who owns the painting valued at $30 million.  The Cassirer family may appeal to the full 9th Circuit or even the U.S. Supreme Court.

 

The painting is, "La Rue St. Honoré, effet de Soleil, Après-Midi, 1898,” an oil-on-canvas work of a rain-swept Paris street that Pissarro painted as he gazed at the scene from his hotel window.

 

Lilly Cassirer’s father-in-law bought it directly from Pissarro’s art dealer and left it to her and her husband when he died. In 1939, she traded it to the Nazis in exchange for exit visas for herself, her husband and her grandson, who eventually settled in the U.S. Her great-grandson, David Cassirer of San Diego, has continued the litigation since his father's death.

 

Neither Cassirer's heirs nor Spain's Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum dispute the painting's early history.

 

What's at issue all these years later is whether Baron Hans Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza made any serious effort to determine the painting was looted art when he acquired it from a New York gallery owner for $275,000 in 1976.  Also in question is whether the Spanish curators did their due diligence in tracing its provenance when a Spanish nonprofit foundation acquired it and hundreds of other paintings from the baron's collection in 1992 and created the Madrid museum that bears his name.

 

Lilly Cassirer’s heirs say she spent years trying to recover the painting before concluding it was lost and accepting $13,000 in reparations from the German government in 1958.

 

It wasn’t until 1999 that her grandson, Claude, who had vividly recalled seeing it hanging in the family's German home, discovered it in the Madrid museum. After Spain refused to hand it over, he sued.

Re: Coat of Arms #poland

JPmiaou@...
 

Barbara is absolutely right in general -- but heraldry (and nobility) in Poland is Weird:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heraldic_clan

Short version: in Poland, coats of arms were often granted to multiple unrelated families, who then formed a heraldic/noble clan (_herb_). All members of a Polish noble family (_szlachta_) therefore used the same heraldry.

I am not aware of any Jewish _szlachta_, but I haven't exactly made a study of the topic.

Re: Looking for cemetery in London for Horowitz, Moskowitz #unitedkingdom

Geoffrey Samuel
 

There is definitely an ohel for the Shotzer Rebbe at the Enfield cemetery. There are photos and descriptions of it on the web, e.g. https://bennistar.tumblr.com/post/96219370979/tziyun-grave-of-the-shotzer-rebbe-ztl-in and also some material about it in Harry Rabinowicz’s 1997 book A World Apart: The Story of the Chasidim in Britain and at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shulem_Moshkovitz

 

Does anyone have detailed material on the Shotzer rebbe’s family? My grandmother, Esther Moscovici, was apparently a close relative, and used to visit him regularly in London in the 1920s and 1930s, but I have never been able to trace the relationship. I assume it was through her father, Aron Moise Moscovici, also a Hasid, who died in 1900 at the age of 64. The family was from Piatra Neamţ, which is not far from Suceava (Shotz). I’d be grateful for any help.

Re: Potato Latkes...are you Litvak or Galitizianer? #galicia #lithuania

Larry Gaum
 

My family came from Kozhan Horodok, (Yiddish, Kozhanadok) Belarus.  A small shetel about 80 km. NE of Pinsk.  We are obviously Litvaks. They settled in Nova Scotia, Canada in 1910 where the locals ate delicious chips, ( French Fries.)  They were consumed with lots of Heinz Ketchup.  Therefore, we began to eat the Latkas with Ketchup.  Turned out to be a delicious combination, better than apple sauce or sour cream.  A Litvak first.  Try it, you'll like it.

Re: Coat of Arms #poland

Barbara Mannlein <bsmannlein@...>
 

1. Not common at all.
       In Poland only the noble class was entitled to bear armorial signs.

2. Very few Jewish families had them:

    Coats of arms belong to specific individuals and families and there is NO SUCH THING as a coat of arms for a family name.  "Today, almost anyone can buy a coat of arms from internet retailers that pretend to know all about our Cohen, Levinsky or Silverstein family forebears.  Such ill-gotten honours, however, are almost always bogus.

      Generally speaking,  Ashkenazi Jews didn't adopt surnames til roughly 1800.  "The Rothschilds had one. The Disraelis had one. The Montefiore, Mocatta and Sassoon families each had one.

     "Popular with Jewish aristocracy in Europe,Jewish coats of arms once seemed a sort of harmless conceit for the rich. 

3.   "Armorial bearings of families to which the right to bear arms has been granted by the recognized heraldic authorities. This right is feudal in character; and it seems to have originated, toward the end of the twelfth century, in the international relations during the Crusades, which rendered it desirable to introduce some system into the devices on shields. 

As Jews had no recognized position in the feudal system, they could not use coats of arms. Consequently, no Jewish coats of arms were recognized by the heralds in the Middle Ages.

6 September 2020 European Day of Jewish Culture #events #announcements

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

Thirty-two European countries will participate in this year’s European Day of Jewish Culture scheduled for 6 September—a Sunday.   The event theme is “Jewish journeys”.  Rome, Italy will be the leading city for this 21st celebration of Jewish Culture.  The activities are coordinated by the European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture (AEPJ), the European Council of Jewish Communities, B'nai B'rith Europe and the Network of Jewish Quarters in Spain.

 

In Italy over 90 Italian cities and towns and 16 regions will participate.  Due to the pandemic this year most of the events will be virtual itineraries I synagogues, museums and Jewish neighborhoods including performances and lectures.

 

Jewish presence in Italy goes back quite far.  The Jewish presence on the Tiber is in fact already attested in the 2nd before the Common Era, long before the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem (70 CE) which originated the exile of the people of Israel known as the Diaspora. The first historically documented contacts date back to 161 BCE, the year in which the ambassadors sent by Judas Maccabee to the Senate stipulated a treaty of friendship and alliance between Rome and the Jewish people in revolt against the Seleucids.

I'm also greedy. One of my grandparents was Litvak. The other three were Galitzianer. I use both on latkes, though if I had to pick one, it would be sour cream. Pierogi and blintzes are sour cream only.
