Rabbi Daniel COHEN D'AZEVEDO #rabbinic

Adrien Genet <agenet@...>
 

Rabbi Daniel COHEN D'AZEVEDO

b. 1751 UK, d. 1823 Amsterdam, Netherlands

Rabbi Daniel Cohen d'Azevedo was the son of Rabbi David Cohen d'Azevedo
whom he succeeded as the Chief Rabbi of the Portuguese Synagogue in
Amsterdam. 1779 until 1812 were the years of his rabbinate in the
Amsterdam synagogue. He married Esther Rodrigues Brandon in 1779. I
would appreciate any information on children he and his wife may have
had as I believe my great-great-great grandfather, Elias "Daniel" Cohen
d'Azevedo was their son. Elias was born in 1783 and lived most of his
life in Kingston, Jamaica.

Any information about Rabbi Daniel would be appreciated.

SCHWEITZER OR SCHWEIZER or family from Dernau #germany

Lin <lin2@...>
 

Does anyone know of the SCHWEIZER OR SCHWEITZER family >from Dernau,
Germany? I understand at one time it was in France? A little over
a month ago I found out my great-great grandmother was Lisette
"Elisabethe" SCHWEITZER or SCHWEIZER >from Dernau, Germany.
Her father was Michel SCHWEITZER or SCHWEIZER.

I am hitting a dead end getting any info before my great-great-great
grandfather Michel SCHWEITZER/SCHWEITZER. I just found out the name
of Michel's brother, Andreas yesterday, . but I am not able to go
backward >from Michel, or find out any information about the family.

Is anyone related to this family? On the LDS site I was only able
to find a little information about Lisette's children-
my great-grandfather and his siblings) all of which I already had,
due to someone >from GerSIG sending me with a huge family tree of
the LEVI family a few days ago. Thanks so much.

My recently discovered French relatives in Nancy, France described
some of what happened to their Samuel family during the war. I am
not looking for Page of Testimony - I have all those pertinent to
these families. I have been in touch with Yad Vashem and they sent me
the ITS information they had. The information I am looking for deals
very specifically with Blanche Samuel.

What I know is as follows:
Blanche Samuel was born on January 15, 1920 in Rambervillers, Vosges,
France. Her parents were Lucien Samuel and Renee Abraham (or
Avraham).
She, along with two of her siblings and her parents were on
Transport
71 >from Drancy to Auschwitz on April 13, 1944. ITS documents report
that she was in Bergen Belsen but lost track of her on April 19, 1945.
Other ITS documents report that she died between April 19, 1945 and
May 1, 1945.

The family received a letter >from Blanche dated April 28, 1945 and
postmarked >from Hazebrouck May 7, 1945. In that letter, Blanche said
that she was alive after a year of extreme hardship and that she hoped
to be with the family soon, perhaps within a couple of weeks. I don't
have a time framework of what happened next. Blanche's sister-in-law
(my relative Andree) said that Blanche;s uncle went to meet a train on
which she was expected to arrive at Gare de l'Est in Paris, and she
was not on it. The uncle spoke to one of Blanche's friends who was on
the train and she said that Blanche was coming ont he next train. She
was never heard >from again.
Don't discredit the fact that in the page of testimony her death was
described as:

"Décés: 9 Mai 1945
Liberé mais jamais [...??]"

[= death: 9 May 1945 - Liberated but never ...]

The missing word could be "Venue" [located??] ??

<http://db.yadvashem.org/names/nameDetails.html?itemId=1196627&language=en#!prettyPhoto[gallery2]/0/>
[or http://tinyurl.com/d7jdfaz --Mod.]

which makes it quite possible she wrote the letter on April 28
and the letter was posted later in Hazebrouck, maybe by someone else.

WWII Resistance by Greece's Jews #general

Marshall Katz
 

Having just returned >from Greece, during my visit there, I had
occasion to visit the Jewish Museum of Greece. The Jewish Museum of
Greece has conductedextensive research and routinely conducts
educational activities and exhibitions.

During WWII, Greece, like other countries, paid a heavy price in the
Holocaust, losing over 86 percent of its Jewish population. Each year
the museum has an explosion and >from now until April, 2014, they have
an exhibition on a chapter of history titled, "Greek Jews in the
National Resistance in WWII," honoring the the 650 men and women who
decided to join the resistance, not just in order to save their own
lives, but also in the service of freedom. It is known that at least
63 were killed while fighting the Nazis in the resistance and 73 were
executed.
[Historical data compiled by historian Iasonas Handrinos.]

The majority of the Greek Jews in the resistance fought with the National
Liberation Front (EAM). In 1943, when the first deportations started in
Thessaloniki, the EAM issued a declaration about the "death trains." EAM
organized a protection network for Jews fleeing Nazi persecution, among
them, the rabbi of Athens pressured by the Nazis to hand over a list of
the Jews in his community.

Personal Note: My cousin, a survivor, was in the camp with many of the
Greek Jews that were deported and he even remembers many Greek words he
learned >from them. The artifacts, memorabilia and photos on display in
the museum are amazing. Should you have occasion to be in Athens, the
Jewish Museum of Greece should be on your itinerary.

It is located at 39 Nikis Street, Syntagma, tel 210.322.5582.
Open Monday-Friday 9 a.m. - 2.30 p.m

Hello Group,
I am seeking help >from a member in Paris.
I have recently discovered, >from a Yad Vashem Page of Testimony, a cousin
living in Paris. I telephoned the family but my French is terrible and their
English is only marginally better.
I want to email them but I couldn't understand what they were telling me was
their email address.
I'm also not sure they understood fully when I told them mine.

The family is Henri JANKLEWICZ living in Paris 3rd.
If a French speaking member can email me privately I can give them the
telephone number to contact them.

Vienna to Cuba 1941 #general

George
 

My grandmother was able to leave Vienna for Cuba in 1941. My father
told me that it required a lot money to get her out, probably around
$5000. I was quite surprised to hear that she was able to leave as
late as 1941 especially after reading about the "Voyage of the Damned".
She arrived in the US on November 21, 1942. Does anyone know how she
could have gotten out so late?
