Many Jews managed to flee from the Ukraine as the Nazis advanced. My cousins reached Tashkent. After the war they went to other places. I don't know if they went back to their original homes or to other places. I know one cousin gave birth to her second son in Moscow a number of years after the war.

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

Stephen Katz
 

Phil Goldfarb's statement that "the term Health Care Provider came from Nazi Germany" is incorrect.
1. One of the two sources he cites, an article on the persecution of pediatricians in Nazi Germany, explains that, as part of their humiliation, the Nazis downgraded Jewish doctors to "behandler." The article says that "behandler" is "freely translated" (my emphasis) as "provider." Actually, the normal and accepted meaning of the verb "behandeln" is to "treat," and a "behandler" is someone who treats.
2. The second article cited by Mr. Goldfarb is simply derivative of the first, and makes the leap that the modern term "provider" in reference to doctors is derived from "behandler" as used by the Nazis.
3. So the notion that the term "health care provider" came from Nazi Germany is wrong. Most probably, the term, of relatively recent vintage, was coined by advertisers, insurance companies, etc., as a shorthand way of referring to all those in the health care professions, e.g., physicians, nurses, pharmacists, psychologists, and so forth. They use the term to avoid having to repeat the list of professionals each time, and to avoid offending any that might be left out of an enumeration.
4. I, too, dislike the term "health care provider." I believe that it detracts from, and indeed nullifies, the respect that doctors and members of all other health care professions richly deserve.However, I don't believe that arguments against the use of the term should misstate its origins.

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

What I know is that Bismarck's model of health insurance was the first introduced in Germany. In the 1880's. (https://pphr.princeton.edu/2017/12/02/unhealthy-health-care-a-cursory-overview-of-major-health-care-systems/)

As Nazis didn't usually speak English, what is the German term for "health care provider" which is supposed to have been introduced by the Nazis? There are indeed, very unfortunately, Nazi terms that haven't been wiped from the German language after the war, but several German translations come to my mind for "health care provider". The article claiming the Nazi link doesn't even mention once the German word supposed to be the basis of this affirmation. Did you find it somewhere else?

I am sorry. I should have added that most physicians detest the name provider. Now you can see why!

Jewish refugees in Tashkent during WWII - Moroz

Ellen
 

Below is a copy of a registration card I found on the website of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum awhile back.  It is from a collection called "Registration cards of Jewish refugees in Tashkent, Uzbekistan during WWII."  The translation indicates that the card was issued to Aleksandr Semenovich Moroz, who I believe was my great-uncle.



I'm not familiar with Tashkent and its role during WWII, and I haven't found any subsequent records for my relative.  What happened to these refugees after the war?  Where could I find more information?  There doesn't seem to be anything else available at the USHMM or Yad Vashem.

Thanks.

Ferramonti di Tarsia and Pentcho reunion Tel Aviv May 2020 #jewishgennews #israel #unitedkingdom #usa #holocaust

For anyone interested in Ferramonti di Tarsia, the Calabrian concentration camp,  and the miraculous 1940 adventure  of the Pentcho steamship that sailed down the Danube carrying 500 Jews on their hopeful journey to Erez Israel (but was diverted to Ferramonti for a few  years) I am told there is to be a Pentcho reunion in Tel Aviv in May of this year. As yet I only have the date of the 18th May but no doubt will hear more in time. If anyone wants to know more, feel free to email me. I intend to be there as I am involved in the Ferramonti story having just published by late father's book about his three years in captivity there (David Henryk Ropschitz: Ferramonti:Salvation behind the barbed wire")

I was told that between the world wars, there were 4 Jewish families living in this small town, 15km on the railway line from Breslau,
My PGPs , Adolf and Frieda STEIN,with their 3 children.  They had a men's outfitters business and lived above the shop.  The 3 children moved to London and Los Angeles.  
Dr Heidenfeld was a family doctor.  He lived there with his wife and 2 daughters.  One daughter, Hortense, died in London last year aged nearly one hundred.  
Another family was called Jungmann.  Another may have had a shoe shop. 
Can anyone help with information on the last 2 families ?

Have you ever set up a Google Alert for your family names, ancestral towns and key words you may be researching?  I use this tool everyday and many of the postings I create are a result of one of the Google Alerts.  Now, Google Alert  has an new search: Ancestor Search on Google Search. 

 

Google adds 68 Million new web pages daily so there is a good chance your ancestor, ancestral town, etc. may be included in a recent or upcoming new webpage addition!

The US Holocaust Museum Asked New Yorkers for Their Family Artifacts from WWII. #holocaust

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

 

 

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) asked New Yorkers for family artifacts from World War ll.  They collected 250 artifacts thus far. As Holocaust survivors are aging and many have died this is a program racing against time. The USHMM decided to focus on New York City and surrounding areas as a large population of Holocaust survivors and their descendants live in the area.

 

The artifacts will be digitized and join the Museum’s collection.

 

If you wish to donate related artifacts to the USHMM please contact them at curator@... or call at (202) 488-2649.

 

An article shows nine of the artifacts donated. See: https://tinyurl.com/qvrzh8f

Re: Passage Libau, Latvia to Jaffa, Palestine

boris
 

There are couple issues with the contains of the post that may require further investigation.

 

1. We do not know for a FACT that the naturalization papers were filled out accurately (unless there is a corroborating evidence regarding Libau as a birthplace.)

2. We do not know for a FACT that the woman who traveled from LeHavre to Ellis Island is Roberta Lipitz’s grandmother and not another woman with the same name (unless there is a corroborating evidence omitted in the post).

3. The woman may have been born in another small town in then Courland but Libau was a well known and easier to pronounce name.

 

I would try to learn how Jews of Lithuania-Latvia travelled to Palestine in those days. This knowledge may provide clues.

 

Good luck!

Re: Transferring money to the Belarus archive #belarus

Nicole Heymans
 

This looks like a tradeoff to reduce bank charges for all involved.

Charges on transfers within the SEPA (Single European Payments Area) zone are the same as for internal transfers, e.g. nil for transfers from Belgium.
Belarus is not part of SEPA, so there is clearly an incentive for Belarussians to have a SEPA account to reduce charges for international payments; for them and for their correspondents.

For anyone having an account within the SEPA zone, obviously a transfer to the German account of the Belarus archives would be best option. For others, check charges to avoid undue surprises
