How do you know about this place?  Was it written somewhere?  If so, it would be better to see the original document (In Russian or so) with that name listed.  Also what years your ancestor lived in that place?  That may help.

(UK) The Jews Who Fought in Bomber Command--New Website #United Kingdom #World War ll

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

 

 

 

A non-Jewish Archivist, Cathie Hewitt, is researching Jews who fought and died in the Bomber Command from 1939-1945. She started a self-funded website to share their stories. The archivist has worked at the International Bomber Command in London. She has created family trees and continues to uncover life stories. She started working at Bomber Command in 2018 to support her master’s degree in genealogy. The database holds names of over 1,000 men from all over the world to serve in the many air forces that supported the Bomber Command.

 

Her research has found stories such as how Jewish airman flew low over the occupied Netherlands to drop food supplies to one million starting  Dutch citizens and abut a Jewish Londoner sailed a boar to Dunkirk and brought back 500 men.

 

Ms. Hewitt initially created the database by searching through “W.R. Chorley’s Bomber Command Losses series of books for typical Jewish names and Henry Morris’s book ‘We will remember them,’ a record of the Jews who died in the Armed Forces 1939-1945.”  Additional assistance was provided by Martin Sugarman at AJEX, Stuart Rosenblatt at the Irish Jewish Genealogical Society and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission provided details of those who have a Magen David on their headstones.

 

The archive will initially concentrate on the men who died serving in the RAFVR.  The next phase will include those who served in the RCAF, RAAF and the other nations who supported Bomber Command.

The website was launched last week: https://www.thejewsofbombercommand.com/  You can access the stories with photos there.

 

If your family has an airman who was Jewish and died serving in the Bomber Command please contact them at:

Please note the restrictions on the website of using the content except for personal or private use without prior approval from Ms. Hewitt.

Thank you to the person who emailed me suggesting that it could be Riga. Have checked the original document and think they are right, and the transcriber got the spelling wrong.


Re: Google Alert for Finding Ancestors

jbonline1111@...
 

Thanks so much!  I tested this with the death of a great-uncle that resulted in a lawsuit.  The form is limited but had enough information related only to genealogy. I was surprised that, though I got no results, the tool did include alternative spellings of his name that I did not input.  We'll see if the alert eventually yields further information.

Thank you for any information regarding her parents and/or ancestors in Latvia.

Re: Jewish refugees in Tashkent during WWII - Moroz

beckyanderson53@...
 

My relatives, who lived in Odessa, were also evacuated to Tashkent and other points East during the war.  They all returned to Odessa after the war, although my great-grandmother died before they returned.  (My grandparents always said she could not recover from the stress of being displaced.)

Mike,

Yes, apparently he was (at some point) a tailor in Moscow.  I'm trying to figure out where he was for most of his adult life, before and after WWII.  

Thanks for the translation and link.

Re: Kanth near Breslau, Silesia ( now called Katy Wroclawskie)

Rodney Eisfelder
 

https://www.mappingthelives.org/ shows 15 people living in Kanth in 1939 (not all of them Jewish). None of them have the surnames you mention. Jewish Families include DRYENFURTH, GAPPE, HOFFMANN, LOEWENSTEIN & TICHAUER. Obviously, anyone who left before May 1939 was not included in the census.

I hope this helps,

Re: Birthplace?

Alexander Sharon
 

This appears to be a place known as Solovyevka (Russian), listed also in JewishGen Gazetteer in Ukrainian as Soloviyivka (translates to English as Nightingale)

JGFF database lists two entries for this locality. Places by this name are located near large Jewish towns of Brusilov (Kiev region), Simferopol (Crimea), Vinnitsa and Voronovitsya (Podolia).

Dr. DeAngelis is at Johns Hopkins University. You may want to contact her to see how she came to use the term and if she ever heard of it before.

I also have a card for a woman I assume is a relative by marriage--same small hometown in Russia, same surname, but I have yet to connect her. Her name was Etka Rotshteyn (Rothstein) from Smiela/Smela Russia (now Ukraine).


Re: Did you know...the term Health Care Provider came from Nazi Germany?

Andreas Schwab
 

"Behandler" does not mean "Provider." "Behandeln" (verb) = to treat. "Behandler" (noun), one who treats, caregiver. The latter is not a normal word in the German language, but an ad hoc derivation especially invented for the purpose of humiliating those who had earned a legitimate professional licence as physicians but were despised bu the Nazis. 
The author of the original article cited, Paul Saenger MD, used "provider" as a translation for "Behandler" because he did not come up with a proper translation of the term. He should have used "caregiver", but unfortunately, he did not know better. An unfortunate but excusable mistake. The author of the 2019 article, Niran Al-Agba, uses this wrong translation in order to denounce the term "provider". He first makes the (wrong) connection of the word "Provider" with the Nazi tyranny, but then denounces the word for entirely different reasons that have to do with the lamentable state of the US health system that has transformed health care into a business venture. He thus is unwillingly extending the denigration brought about by the Nazis to physicians, nurses and other professional in the health care system of English-speaking nations.
Seeking the origin of the word "provider" in the term "health care provider" in Nazi Germany is a fallacy. Although I cannot attest to the origin of the term, the earliest occurrence I have found is in a book published in 1975 [1], at a time where the US health care system was not yet as business-oriented as it is today. Even if the term "health care provider" is not ideal, it has been ingrained into the English language and is probably here to stay. It is not by changing this term that the US health care system can be reformed and humanized.

Re: Need your help identifying Family Member's Country of Origin - #general

Hi,

I have also been told that Morris is most likely Moshe by a family member.  It is said my father Morris Sherman is named after his Grandfather Morris (Moshe).  In Solomon's marriage registry, he lists parent's Morris Sherman and Ida Hoffman.
