Further to my posting last month regarding the 3rd Stolperstein ceremony on
Thomasiusstrasse, if anyone is interested in seeing photos and videos of
the day's events, please contact me privately.

The next ceremony will be on September 24, 2015 when 19 more stones will
be laid, and the final one will be in November 2015 - no exact date yet.

If you are in Berlin, please come and attend this very moving and important
event, and the ensuing reception.

It is our hope that other residents will be inspired to follow the example
of the neighbors of Thomasiusstrasse on their own streets.

Shanghai Jewish Newspapers During WW ll Online; Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum Database #general

Shanghai Jewish Newspapers

About 30,000 Jews fleeing Europe during WWll found their way to Shanghai
China due to their "loose" visa requirements. Thanks to both the Leo Baeck
Institute and the Internet Archive, four newspapers are in the
collection-most of the writing is in German, some in English. The four
newspapers are:
Shanghai Jewish Chronicle 1939-1945
https://archive.org/details/shanghaijewishch01unse

S. Z. am Mittag der Shanghai Post. 1939-1940
https://archive.org/details/szammittagdersha00ead

Acht Uhr Abendblatt 1939-1941
https://archive.org/details/achtuhrabendblat00ead

Shanghaier Morgenpost 1941-
https://archive.org/details/shanghaiermorgen00ead

Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum

About 20,000 of these refugee Jews lived in the Shanghai area known as in
Tilanqiao, the "Designated Area for Stateless Refugees". The area is still
preserved. The Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum is located at the former site
of Ohel Moshe Synagogue and two exhibition halls. It is an important
component of the "Tilanqiao Historic Area" and serves to commemorate the
phase of history when the Jewish refugees lived in Shanghai.

The Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum has a database with name, occupation and
address information for many of the refugees. To search the database see:
http://www.shanghaijews.org.cn/english/article/?sid=34

The database is sponsored by the Consulate General of Israel in Shanghai and
built with the donations >from Israeli enterprises

To learn more about the museum see: http://www.shanghaijews.org.cn/english/

parts of Jewish history during WWll. See: http://tinyurl.com/na2j77t

Finding Brooklyn, NY Deeds for Leib COOPERMAN #general

The Becker's Email
 

Dear Genners,

I have found three references to conveyances and mortgages for Leib
COOPERMAN for the period 1906-1911 in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle newspaper.
He and his family are listed on the 1910 census in Brooklyn at 659 Ashford
as owning their home w/ a mortgage. On the 1915 NY census they are at the
same address. Leib died in 1919 and his widow Bessie along w/ Max, Kate and
Edith COOPERMAN are living at a different address (574 Essex, Brooklyn) on
the 1920 census.

Where can I find a listing of all Lieb's land transactions, particularly
what happened to cause the family to move by 1920? Although
familysearch.org has NY Land Records online supposedly for 1630-1975,
conveyances essentially end with the year 1886 and pickup again w/ 1975. The
grantor/grantee online indexes don't have the volumes for "C" for the period
either. The online mortgage records only cover 1927-1945. I could not
find land records in the familysearch.org catalog for microfilm for the
appropriate period either. I have also tried browsing familysearch.org
index for probate records for NY in the hopes of finding something but no
luck finding Leib.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Goethe University Inaugurates First Holocaust Professorship in Germany #germany

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany will establish the first
professorship in Germany for Holocaust research beginning in 2017. The
Frtiz Bauer Institut which documents and studies Holocaust atrocities will
collaborate. The professorship will examine both the history and the
consequences of the genocide. While this is the first professorship in
Germany devoted to the Holocaust, these two institutions and others in
Germany already research the Holocaust.

Funding is >from the state of Hesse. It will fund the professorship with
150,000 Euros per year and the University is now searching for someone to
fill the position.

Searching HERDAN USA #general

Stephanie Berrys <sjbovu@...>
 

To all the searching experts out there....

Thanks to the new Social Security Application index on Ancestry I
have found info on a number of family members, for which I have
been searching for several years. So far this morning only had
time to delve into one but having trouble finding anything further
on her.

Evaline DECHTER born St Paul MN May 26, 1895, parents Abraham
DECHTER & Goldie GOODMAN. I have her birth record >from MN, census
records for her through 1930 in St Paul and address book listings
through the mid 30s, also in St. Paul. The last city directory
listing I see for her is 1938 in the Los Angeles area, which
makes sense to me as a number of her (I believe) cousins ended up
there in that time frame.

After that the trail had gone cold for me, couldn't find marriage
or death info. On the new index I have found her under Evaline M.
HERDAN, death November 1998. Last known address in California.
Apparently her SSN was issued in New Mexico which I find somewhat
odd.

And now the trail has gone cold again. I presume she married ( late
in life, in her 40s or 50s?) hence the name change. But I can't
find any marriage info in California, nor can I find any record of
her death save the SSN info. I have been looking through Ancestry
this morning and a little searching on Family Search and Google. I
was hoping to find descendents but I think that's unlikely. Trying
to trace the relationship between her father and my great-great
grandparents....same last name, travelled Hamburg to Scotland and
Scotland to North America together and settled, at some points as
neighbours, in St. Paul.

Thanks

Brezhnitz - Town in Ukraine #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to our family tree, one of our ancestors was a Rabbi Yosef
who , supposedly, was the Rav of a town named Brezhnitz. This Rav
Yosef married the daughter of Rav Arieh Leib ben (son of) Shmuel who
were the Rabbis of Kremenetz during the 18th cent. These Rabbis were
descendants of R' Naftali KATZ , who authored the "Smichat Chachamim".

I am trying to identify the town Brezhnitz as there many towns with
similiar sounding names and hope that the details regarding the above
Rabbi will help someone identify this place. I presume that the
Brezhnitz I am looking for is not Breznitz, in Czech.

Thank you
