I have always been told that my paternal grandparents were born in
Minsk. Now I find on death record that my grandmother is listed as
being born in Minsk but my grandfather is listed as being born in
Yletz, Russia. I have not been able to find a town with the name
Yletz. Is anyone familiar with a town with the name Yletz, or one
spelled similar? Thank you

Late Filipino President Manual Quezon Honored for Saving 1300 Jews During Holocaust #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Late Filipino President Manuel Quezon saved as many Jews during the
Holocaust as did Oskar Schindler. This week the Raul Wallenberg Foundation
honored Quezon posthumously.

President Quezon did this through his "open door" immigration policy which
was very controversial at the time. He was the Philippines first president,
and served during the 1930's. He learned about the problems Jews from
Eastern Europe were having -- the oppressive Nazi rulings-- >from his poker
playing friends, the-US Colonel Dwight D Eisenhower and an American Jewish
cigar maker, Herbert Friedler.

President Quezon set a target of 10,000 refugees to be welcomed to the
Philippines-but only 1,300 were able to take advantage before the Japanese
occupied the Philippines in 1941.

Translation help:1948 Hungarian letter #hungary

allenalex@...
 

Dear Jenners, Following my father's death, I found a letter in his house that was stored for many years among my grandfatherâ??s possessions that probably was written and mailed in 1948. The letter was sent to my grandfather Jack Isaac (born Jeno Izsak in 1893 in Szatmar) >from his older half-brother Marton Izsak, who lived in Budapest. I believe Marton survived the Holocaust hidden by or living with a Christian family. The letter (with envelope) has 5 sides, on 4 unnumbered pages, handwritten in Hungarian. I would be grateful for an English translation, or at a minimum, a sense of what the letter is about. If you are willing to look at the letter, please email to me privately at <allenalex@...>. I will reply sending a scan of the letter to you.

Auschwitz Death Certificates #hungary

Peter Absolon
 

Couple of days ago Madeleine Isenberg, a friend of mine and my dear
Find-a-Grave collaborator, mentioned the website she found couple of
years ago, containing mora than 60.000 names >from Auschwitz Death
Registry, mainly >from years 1942-1943.

The website doesn't exist anymore. Here is only one page which is
still online, with names starting on A:
http://cleveland.indymedia.org/news/2007/03/24627.php

Luckily enough, Madeleine was able to download the whole list at the
time she found it. I was also able to retrieve them using Internet
Wayback Archive. Then I parsed them through to a spreadsheet and made
it available online here:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tGFHHICtguU5_S_QuCBpW0awQIGF-X7gY30j0URRlok/edit?usp=sharing

The list contains 60000+ names, but not all of them are Jewish. You
can however, filter out whatever you want. You can even download a
offline XLS copy >from File menu. The filtering works if you go to
"Data - Filter Views / Create New Temporary Filter View" menu.

It is quite possible that you already know about that list - so I
apologize in advance, if it isn't something new. But I guess there
could be people who could find it useful.

I also forwarded the list to JewishGen Holocaust DB coordinator, who
could include it into JG as another source dataset.


Kind regards,
Peter Absolon

BREUERs of Lucenec, Slovakia #hungary

Alyson Breuer
 

Dear Fellow Genners:

I have again taken up the search in earnest for family members from
Lucenec and now look to all of you to see if any names ring bells in
your areas of study!

Fulop BREUER and his wife, Marie STOSSEL, had 4 children: ARANHA,
b.1876, OLGA, b.1878, MALVIN b. 1880 and IREN, b. 1883. Ferencz
BREUER (1846-1924) and his first wife, Julia SCHLESINGER (c1850 -
1893) also had children: BIRO (name changed in infancy >from Arnold),
b. 1876; ERNO, b. 1888, Olga (1879 - 1892) and JENO, b. 1888. There
are two more BREUERs: ERNO, b. 1877 and ARPAD, b. 1878, both sons of
Vilmos (Viliam) BREUER b. c1850 and Julia BRAUN b. c1850-1883. A
third son of Vilmos does not appear at all in the LDS filmed pages of
the Lucenec Rabbinical birth records for the late 19C >from which all
this information is taken -- my grandfather-in-law, OTTO BREUER, born
in 1875.

They all seem, with the exception of Otto, to have sunk tantalisingly
without trace and I am wondering how to track any of them down.
Lucenec was a thriving, prosperous Jewish community between the wars
with a splendid Synagogue, so there is no obvious economic reason why
the men should have left, though if the women married and moved away,
tracking them becomes much more difficult. Did any of them come to
the US? No idea, but they might have. Strangely, none of them is
listed in the wartime list of Jews in Lucenec on Yad Vashem, either as
victims or survivors.

I would dearly love to forge a link with any or all of these BREUERs,
so do please give me a heads-up if you can help!

Many thanks!
