We just discovered a scrap address book of my late David APOTHEKER (1908-1995). He was born in Bardejov,SlovakiaÂ

to Lazar APOTHEKER and Bina KLAUSNER. Bina Klausner was born in Bardejov as well. In the scrap address bookÂ

which is probably >from the beginning of the 1950s we saw L. KLAUSNER 5120 Ft. Hamilton Park W(?) N.Y.

KLAUSNER is a big clan and we never heard >from my father in law about any KLAUSNER relatives in the USA.

Does it ring a bell?

Dear Group,

In the course of my family roots research, I'm reaching out with a
kind request for information on Jewish cemeteries for the locations
of

(1) Kopychintsi
(2) Husiatyn
(3) Obertyn

Have those cemeteries been in any way preserved? destroyed?
Any descriptive information available somewhere?

Thank you

1916-1921 Lodz Registration Card Project is now complete. 230,000 entries added to JRI-Poland. #poland #lodz

Margalit Ashira Ir
 

Dear fellow researchers:

More than three years ago we embarked on a project to extract and
create a database of the Jewish entries in the huge collection of Lodz
Registration Cards >from 1916 to 1921.
https://jri-poland.org/psa/lodz-registration-card-scans.htm

Like any large initiative, it was difficult to initially grasp the
depth of this project and the time it might take to complete. But we
soon learned that there are more than 262 thousand cards to be
reviewed and, of course, knew that a large percentage would be for
Jewish families. It was clear that to carry out this project would
require many years of engaging with and retaining volunteers.

We soon were able to assemble what turned out to be a dedicated team
of our fellow genealogists who took this project to heart. They
realized that the information in these cards would open vital research
opportunities with the potential for dramatic breakthroughs.

Our volunteers reviewed each card to identify the Jewish families and
then extract the key genealogical information - surnames, given names,
parents' names, towns of birth, birth date, occupation, marital
status, date of arrival in Lodz, and in some cases, dates of death.

While we had a core group who drove the project forward, along the way
we were joined by dozens of other volunteers doing their share. It
was truly an international group representing the U.S. Israel, Canada,
Spain, France, Belgium, Russia and Argentina. We also had a
Kenya-based company, Digital Divide, volunteer the time of one of
their expert employees.

Some volunteers were with us >from beginning to end, others offered
their help in between business hours, care giving or simply involved
in their families' day-to-day lives. Each day I could visualize
their activity on this project, the hours at their computers, diligently
reading through and documenting the names of our Jewish brethren.
Their devotion was a heartwarming example of the power of a united
force carrying out a unique mission. In this case ensuring that all
Jewish names in this collection became new stars in the heavens, their
memory forever ingrained on the web for future generations of their
families to find and treasure.

In fact, I have heard >from countless researchers who have found family
members, often learning about cousins and even entire branches they
never knew existed.

I would also like to extend a special and heartfelt thanks to
JRI-Poland super volunteer Howard Fink who has played such a vital
role in processing the data and preparing it to be uploaded to the
JRI-Poland database.

The Lodz Registration Card Project is now complete and the data is
online. Along the way, we reviewed 262,000 cards and identified more
than 230,000 Jewish individuals. They are now forever part of the
database of Jewish Records of Poland, available for all to find.

As the leader of the Lodz Registration Card 1916-1921 Extraction
Project, I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to bring this
mission to fruition and once again express my heartfelt thanks to the
volunteers who made this long journey a success. Yasher Koach to each

Mark the date 14 July 2019 - it signifies 75 years to the liquidation
of the Kovno Ghetto. The Nazis raised the camp with dynamite and
grenades, burning the camp and some 2,000 Jews while sending the
remaining prisoners to Dachau and Stufthof Camps to meet their fates.

On 14 July 2019 the Municipality of Kaunas in co-operation with the
Lithuanian Foreign Ministry, the Jewish Community of Lithuania and
it's branch in Kaunas, along with the Association of Lithuanian Jews
in Israel will hold commemorative ceremonies first in the Ninth Fort
and thereafter in the former Kovno Ghetto.

Please take a moment to remember those who perished and honor those

Seeking Klaus STRIMPEL, d. 1 Sept., 1939 in Ostreszow (Poland) (Son of Max STRIMPEL) #germany

Juergen Niesche <junitsche58@...>
 

Intro: Max STRIMPEL (1885-1944)

As part of a publication about the beginning of the World War II in 1939 I
am writing about the death of Klaus STIMPEL on the 1'st of September
1939 in Ostreszow (Poland).

He was the son of the commercial agent Max STRIMPEL in Chemnitz. His
mother was Lina Frieda Bertha ROEPER >from Hirschfeld near Nossen
(Saxony). Klaus Strimpel was born on on January 26, 1920 in Chemnitz.

Max STRIMPEL was born on October, 17, 1885 in Nuremberg. Before the
World War I he moved to Chemnitz. On April, 30, 1919 he married Lina
Roeper, a non-Jewish woman. Maybe, she converted to Judaism. The family
lived till 1940 in Chemnitz (Dresdner Str. 88). Max STRIMPEL was the
owner of the Polsterwolle- und Wattefabrik Saxonia GmbH, i. e. he traded
with cotton waste. Klaus STRIMPEL belonged to the German soldiers, which
died on the 1^st day of war. His family moved later to Berlin-Spandau.
Max STRIMPEL died on January, 2, 1944 in Spandau. I am trying to
reconstruct the life of this family.

That`s why I am looking for biographic data about Max STRIMPEL and his
family. I am looking for more details about the short life of KLAUS. I
figured out, where he was buried. What happened with his mother?

All advice and information are very welcome.
Thank you very much in advance!
