This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

Yizkor books are full of accounts of Jews resisting the Nazis and
other anti-Semites who persecuted them: uprisings in the ghettos of
the camps, acts of heroism against those who tried to murder them,
partisans dealing justice to the enemy. Aharon Moravtchik tells a
different kind of story in =E2=80=9CMy Small Revenge for the Heinous Crime
from the Dayvd-Haradok (David Horodoker) Yizkor book. He had lost my
entire family, my wife, my four children, my parents, brothers and
sisters, the entire Jewish community of my home town. He had kept a
list of names of those who had committed these crimes and, after the
war was over in 1946, he resolved to be the blood-avenger for my
David-Horodoker brothers and sisters, tracking down those involved in
the atrocities that befell his town.

Bakonybank #hungary

Thanks to a grant >from Mazsok, the small cemetery in Bakonybank was recently restored and a fence erected.
Together with Martin Perl, we paid to have the stones re-erected properly and cleaned so that we now have a photographic database of the 62 extant stones.

We donated these records to Jewishgen a month ago but they are not yet in the database. If anyone has family >from there, I would be happy to send it.

With regards,

JGSGW Welcomes Dr. Andrew Zalewski on Sunday, September 22, 2019 #general

Nancy Kotz <JGSGW@...>
 

The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Washington (JGSGW) will host the
program, Medical Globetrotters & Persevering Women presented by Dr. Andrew
Zalewski, at B9nai Israel Congregation (6301 Montrose Road, Rockville, MD) on
Sunday, September 22, 2019. Activities begin at 1:00 PM including consultations
with our genealogy mavens followed by the program beginning at 1:30 PM.

Surprising details about Jewish medical globetrotters will be brought to light
through newly uncovered records. In the early period, when other European medical
schools barred Jewish men, aspiring physicians >from Galicia, Lithuania, and
elsewhere ventured to Padua University to study medicine. >from the end of the 18th
century onwards, Jews >from Galicia attended universities in the Habsburg Empire.
Jewish medics influenced Galician life far beyond their profession, serving as
mediators between their communities and non-Jewish neighbors, advocating religious
and civic reforms, and publishing material that challenged stereotypes. At the turn
of the 20th century, Jewish women were at the forefront of a newly won access to
university education. The presentation will be illustrated by unique archival
documents and old maps acquired by Gesher Galicia. You don't have to have medical
practitioners among your ancestors to find this topic of interest, and
helpful in your family research.

Dr. Andrew Zalewski is a former professor of medicine at Jefferson University,
Philadelphia. He is a board member of Gesher Galicia and past editor of its
research journal, The Galitzianer. Dr. Zalewski is a frequent speaker at meetings
of Jewish genealogical societies and cultural and academic institutions, and has
authored two books on Austrian Galicia: Galician Trails: The Forgotten Story of One
Family and Galician Portraits: In Search of Jewish Roots.

JGSGW Guest Attendance Policy:
Meetings and most events are free to JGSGW members. Non-members may
attend open events, but not those that are members-only, for a fee of
$5 which will be applied toward JGSGW membership if the guest joins at
the same event. Attendees who require personal assistance due to a
health condition or disability may bring an assistant at no charge.

The Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Washington is a 501(c)(3) organization
dedicated to helping people discover, document and share their family history.

Holocaust Radom Ghetto Expert #poland

arnold friedman <afriedman21@...>
 

Hi everyone,

Looking for someone knowledgeable on the Holocaust Radom Ghetto
history. I was trying to pull my mothers timeline together and have
many facts that i have tied into a narrative, trying to verify if this
is correct.

And specifically, i just found additional records of my mother sala
frydman (some records just have last name recorded, frydman) in the
USHM file Gubernator dystryktu Radomskiego - Der gouverneur des
distrikts Radom (Sygn. 209). It shows payments in polish currency
zlotty for work done. I was hoping someone could confirm if this was
work at heeres standort verwaltung or Armee Fursorge Lager or other
place (or are those the same place??). Which place had a 10 story
building,etc.

If there is a person I could call and ask a few questions and get a
few answers on the phone, it would clarify things for me.

best regards,

arnold

______
at USHM the file is USHM file Gubernator dystryktu Radomskiego - Der
gouverneur des distrikts Radom (Sygn. 209).

Document | Accession Number: 2007.283 | RG Number: RG-15.134M

The collection contains records relating to local economy, especially
the merger of village lands (about 60% of the records), and to
office's internal organization and its staff (about 40% of the
records). There are some records relating to extermination activity,
deportations, camps and the like. for sala frydman or frydman


______
This is my working timeline for my mother in radom. maybe i can match
payments to work locations.

After Germans came to Poland, Committee of Jewish community
leaders in Ghetto who told Nazis where to find Jews for work details,
etc). Mom went there voluntarily to be assigned a good job because
usually jews hid when Germans came. She felt if she waited till they
came for her, she would get a bad job or worse. She did many jobs and
was eventually sent regularly to Heeres Standort Verwaltung. She was
taken every morning and then brought back to the ghetto at night.
They fed the employees at the job. They promised wages but were never
paid. Initially her job was as an elevator operator (bldg was 8 to 10
floors). They would load furniture, etc onto the elevator and she
would push buttons to take it to be unloaded.

Israel Frydman died of an appendicitis in 1941 (possible end of summer
or early fall). She stayed home for short time.

Then she worked at AFL will be "Armee Fursorge Lager". In 1941
Germany Army confiscated the former Tobacco factory on the outskirts
of Radom and had turned it to the clothing supply base. Mostly Jewish
women and young Jewish girls worked there.

She was living at AFL and missed the two big deportations that took
place in the Radom Ghetto in August 1942.

The warehouse closed and she was moved to a small ghetto 3 to 4
kilometers outside in Radom. In small ghetto, Cocheria was the name
for the people who were left alive but had no family left and nowhere
to go. Later was in another small ghetto inside the city and then
later in big Radom ghetto. While there, she was taken out to work at
various jobs in gardens, fields, factory or whatever the Nazis
needed, was taken in morning and returned to ghetto at night.

End of 1942, mom was transferred to Ostrowiec ghetto.

Need Translation of family names on Borisov revision lists 1795 - 1834 #belarus

szvienna@...
 

I am interested in finding out if my family name appears in the Borisov
revision lists of 1795, 1811, 1816 and 1834.
As far as I know, these revision lists have not yet been translated
and are not available in a searchable database.
However, images of the original revision lists are conveniently available
on FamilySearch.org

My difficulty is that the revision lists as far as I can tell are
written in Russian and Polish. I need someone who can look at each
of the images and translate just those images that contain my family name.

I know that JewishGen.org has a page with recommended professional
genealogists. But for this project I don't necessarily need someone
with good genealogical research skills because the data already exist
on FamilySearch.org; rather, I need someone who has good language skills
and who is detail-oriented and very thorough.

Have any of you worked with someone who might be qualified and
interested in taking on this project?

relationship question #general

Trudy Barch
 

Hi friends,
I recently found a son of a cousin and I am not certain if we are related.
Please give me your thoughts
Great aunt Miriam married Hyman. Their child Leonard would be a 1st cousin
to my father. Hyman was previously married and had a daughter Ida. She was a
step-daughter to Miriam. Would she be a step-cousin to my dad? And her children
would they be step-cousins?
I appreciate your thoughts on this.
Thank you, Trudy Barch, Florida
