=====================>

Good morning! Not only Munich is against the Stolperstein
Action of the so called "Kuenstler" Demnich. There are
many people with jewish and non-jewish background who
are against the Stolpersteine. People who are not saying
it loud enough because than they are put into the right corner.

We believe that it is without dignity to trample on the
names of persecutors and dead children, women and
men. They have tramped enough on our names and
have taken away our dignity.
In our case we could stop the laying of stones because
of wrong research.
It might be a difference if you live in Germany or in
another country. There are many examples of dignity
rememberance in many german citys and communities.
And believe me, it is a much better way to remember.

Question regarding the Declaration of Assests Form (1942) #germany

Stacye <FernsAndNettles@...>
 

I have a question regarding a Declaration of Assets Form filled out on
Dec. 14, 1942 in Berlin at the Gormanstrasse 3 holding area.

The Declaration was for a 13 year old girl who subsequently was
transported via Transport 25 to Auschwitz.

My question is regarding the papers attached at the end of the document.

Two papers attached at the end of the Declaration are posted. Why
would these 2 papers list the date of Feb. 5, 1943 ?? What is the
meaning of the date in regards to the Declaration / Deportation filed
on Dec. 14, 1942 ?

Also, what does the notation "Hausanschl. 354, 355" in the upper right
corner of the smaller paper mean?

Is the Feb. 1943 date related to her death date??

We are wondering if when Tolla arrived in Auschwitz if perhaps she was
directed in to slave labor and died in Feb. 1943.

The 2 images in question are located here:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM41526

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM41527

Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you, Stacye Mehard

How to Research with Little Info? GURVICH --> HARRIS #general

Jenny Brown
 

Hello!

I have had terrific success with many genealogical brick walls, but I have
one that is stumping me. What I am looking for is suggestions on where to
look. I am happy to do legwork, but I simply don't know where to begin with
my search!

Back when I was a teenager, before Internet and when my interests were more
passing (and when, truth be told, I didn't quite grasp that my grandparents
wouldn't be with us forever), I spoke with my grandmother about her mother
Rose. My great-grandmother Rose GURVICH, appears to be >from Soly, Lithuania
(though my grandmother told me she was >from Vilna, but Soly is where I've
found a death record for her mother and a marriage record of her sister,
Sophie GURVICH GOLDBERG). Rose married Ben BRENHOLZ in Liskavia, Lithuania.
I also have a postcard she sent Ben (when he came over first) that she sent
from Vilna.
I recently found the notes I took when speaking with my grandmother and it
turns out that Rose had a brother, Joe HARRIS. This is the extent of what I
have: "Joe changed last name to HARRIS. Ran away >from father. Eligible for
czar's army. Came to N.Y. Became active in Tammany Hall (corrupt). Had about
8 children."

And that's it! Rose and her sister had cut off all communication with Joe (or
perhaps Joe cut off all communication with them). Unfortunately, both Harris
and Gurvich are ridiculously common names. I spent one afternoon searching
through marriage records at the New York municipal archives to see if I could
find a marriage record for a Joe or Joseph Harris who had the parents names of
Pinchas/Peter and Basia/Bessie. I got nowhere and I don't think I scratched the
surface of Joe Harrises, especially as I don't know what borough he lived in.

So questions:
1) How old would one have been to be eligible for the czar's army? Rose was
born in 1891-1894 (depending on the record) and Sophie was born in 1884. I
don't know if Joe was older or younger, but their mother died in 1902, so he
had to be born before then.
2) Given that age, would it suggest what year Joe immigrated?
3) Any suggestions on where to look for any hints to this mysterious Joe
Harris? Specific records? I've had no luck when checking stevemorse.com for
manifests for any Gurvich >from Soly or Vilna or Liskavia.

I know this is a shot in the dark, but I figured I'd ask in case anyone had
any suggestions!

Thank you!

Best,
Jenny Brown

I was asked to be on a Facebook page for Tarnobrzeg called Dawny_Tarnobrzeg.
It is Polish with translations.

They have a wonderful pic of the Synagogue before it became the library.
I am looking for a pic of the old cemetery which was near the Synagogue,
destroyed during WWII. If anyone has a pic please let me know. I would like to
post it on my web site.

Thanks
