Decorative prayerbook covers #general

Bryan Diamond
 

I have my English grandfather's siddur, English translation by Franklin,
printed by I Kaufmann in Frankfurt in 1893, a well known edition. It has
a decorative cover of velvet, ivory & metals with a clasp, of a type of
"fancy Binding" advertised as suitable for gifts in The Jewish
Chronicle by booksellers, e g P Vallentine & Sons, in the London East
End >from the 1890s.
I have posted Viewmate pictures at


http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=39216
39217 & 39218

[MOD. NOTE: http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=39217
& http://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/viewmateview.asp?key=39218 ]

Other examples can be seen on ebay and in the London Jewish Museum, Cat
No. 1880.89..

I am intrigued to know who made such covers, the German publisher in
bulk, or the London bookseller commissioning them to order >from a
specialist binder, in London or where? Libraries and Museums in London
have not given the answer, this knowledge seems lost, does anyone know?

Yizkor Book Project, April 2015 #general

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

I was pleased to see that during April, quite a few of our "veteran" and
newer Yizkor Book projects made great leaps and bounds in the translations
and pictures that were added in during this month. Some of the projects are
now just a hairsbreadth away of being completely translated and this has
only come about through the perseverance and dedication of the coordinators
involved in them and, of course, the generous financial support of donors
and the selfless, conscientious volunteers behind the scenes. Still, to
continue this sacred work we are always in need of further financial support
and if you are able to assist in any way to one of the 75 or so Translation
Funds appearing at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
you will have done your piece in helping present generations and those to
come, to read and learn about our lost communities.

Something that also pleased me greatly was that Joel Alpert, the Yizkor Book
in Print Project Coordinator, recently informed me that the 37th Yizkor Book
in Print publication - the "Stawiski Memorial Book" has now become
available. My thanks go out to the YBIP team that made this possible and to
Jan Meisels Allen for leading this project >from its inception to this
publishing stage. Joel also pointed out that it is now three years since the
Yizkor Book in Print Project first began rolling out these unique books and
remarkable achievements have been achieved over this time for this, another
round of applause is definitely forthcoming to his team.

Now to facts and figures for April.

(Norway) National Archives of Norway Puts 1815 Census Online #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The 1815 census of Norway is a result of the 1814 union of Norway and
Sweden. Sweden wanted a statistical survey of the Norwegian economy. This
resulted in many of the 1815 census results being numerical in nature-for
example the numbers of people who lived in a particular village. However,
some of the jurisdictions census preparers made name lists of the
inhabitants as a middle way toward preparing statistical censuses. The
census was taken on April 30, 1815.

The name lists known as nominative lists, were scanned and put online-some
of which have been transcribed and are searchable. Searching may be done by
first name, last name, gender, family position, occupation and year of
birth.

(Germany) Munich Bans Stolperstine (Holocaust) Plaques #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

"Stolpersteine", "stumbling blocks" were created by Gunter Deming and are
small, cobblestone-sized memorials for individual Holocaust victims- and
survivors. The stones are placed in front of the former home of a Holocaust
victim. There about 50,000 in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic.

Earlier this week. Munich's City Council rejected the plan to have
Stolpersteine placed on Munich streets. The city of Munich has banned the
memorial plaques despite a long campaign to persuade the city to face up to
its past. Munich is the city where the Nazi party was founded. Munich lost
its entire Jewish community in WW 11, about 10,000 people. The "official"
reason given for rejecting the plan was the language used to describe the
victims on the plaques and the idea of their names being walked on
underfoot. Instead the politicians prefer allowing signs on buildings where
relatives of the victim request a memorial and the owner of the building
consents-not an easy task. There was a petition with 79,000 signatures of
Munich residents supporting the Stolpersteine project.

Every other major German city and 18 other countries have allowed the small
memorial plaques to be placed in public pavements.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2015 #france

bounce-2954068-772957@...
 

Shalom,

I was pleased to see that during April, quite a few of our "veteran" and
newer Yizkor Book projects made great leaps and bounds in the translations
and pictures that were added in during this month. Some of the projects are
now just a hairsbreadth away of being completely translated and this has
only come about through the perseverance and dedication of the coordinators
involved in them and, of course, the generous financial support of donors
and the selfless, conscientious volunteers behind the scenes. Still, to
continue this sacred work we are always in need of further financial support
and if you are able to assist in any way to one of the 75 or so Translation
Funds appearing at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
you will have done your piece in helping present generations and those to
come, to read and learn about our lost communities.

Something that also pleased me greatly was that Joel Alpert, the Yizkor Book
in Print Project Coordinator, recently informed me that the 37th Yizkor Book
in Print publication - the "Stawiski Memorial Book" has now become
available. My thanks go out to the YBIP team that made this possible and to
Jan Meisels Allen for leading this project >from its inception to this
publishing stage. Joel also pointed out that it is now three years since the
Yizkor Book in Print Project first began rolling out these unique books and
remarkable achievements have been achieved over this time for this, another
round of applause is definitely forthcoming to his team.

Now to facts and figures for April.

(Germany) Munich Bans Stolperstine (Holocaust) Plaques #germany

Jan Meisels Allen
 

"Stolpersteine", "stumbling blocks" were created by Gunter Deming and are
small, cobblestone-sized memorials for individual Holocaust victims- and
survivors. The stones are placed in front of the former home of a Holocaust
victim. There about 50,000 in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic.

Earlier this week. Munich's City Council rejected the plan to have
Stolpersteine placed on Munich streets. The city of Munich has banned the
memorial plaques despite a long campaign to persuade the city to face up to
its past. Munich is the city where the Nazi party was founded. Munich lost
its entire Jewish community in WW 11, about 10,000 people. The "official"
reason given for rejecting the plan was the language used to describe the
victims on the plaques and the idea of their names being walked on
underfoot. Instead the politicians prefer allowing signs on buildings where
relatives of the victim request a memorial and the owner of the building
consents-not an easy task. There was a petition with 79,000 signatures of
Munich residents supporting the Stolpersteine project.

Every other major German city and 18 other countries have allowed the small
memorial plaques to be placed in public pavements.

German SIG #Germany (Germany) Munich Bans Stolperstine (Holocaust) Plaques #germany

"Stolpersteine", "stumbling blocks" were created by Gunter Deming and are
small, cobblestone-sized memorials for individual Holocaust victims- and
survivors. The stones are placed in front of the former home of a Holocaust
victim. There about 50,000 in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic.

Earlier this week. Munich's City Council rejected the plan to have
Stolpersteine placed on Munich streets. The city of Munich has banned the
memorial plaques despite a long campaign to persuade the city to face up to
its past. Munich is the city where the Nazi party was founded. Munich lost
its entire Jewish community in WW 11, about 10,000 people. The "official"
reason given for rejecting the plan was the language used to describe the
victims on the plaques and the idea of their names being walked on
underfoot. Instead the politicians prefer allowing signs on buildings where
relatives of the victim request a memorial and the owner of the building
consents-not an easy task. There was a petition with 79,000 signatures of
Munich residents supporting the Stolpersteine project.

Every other major German city and 18 other countries have allowed the small
memorial plaques to be placed in public pavements.

Yizkor Book Project, April 2015 #yiddish

Shalom,

I was pleased to see that during April, quite a few of our "veteran" and
newer Yizkor Book projects made great leaps and bounds in the translations
and pictures that were added in during this month. Some of the projects are
now just a hairsbreadth away of being completely translated and this has
only come about through the perseverance and dedication of the coordinators
involved in them and, of course, the generous financial support of donors
and the selfless, conscientious volunteers behind the scenes. Still, to
continue this sacred work we are always in need of further financial support
and if you are able to assist in any way to one of the 75 or so Translation
Funds appearing at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=23
you will have done your piece in helping present generations and those to
come, to read and learn about our lost communities.

Something that also pleased me greatly was that Joel Alpert, the Yizkor Book
in Print Project Coordinator, recently informed me that the 37th Yizkor Book
in Print publication - the "Stawiski Memorial Book" has now become
available. My thanks go out to the YBIP team that made this possible and to
Jan Meisels Allen for leading this project >from its inception to this
publishing stage. Joel also pointed out that it is now three years since the
Yizkor Book in Print Project first began rolling out these unique books and
remarkable achievements have been achieved over this time for this, another
round of applause is definitely forthcoming to his team.

Now to facts and figures for April.
