I have a relative who died in Los Angeles in the early 1920s. Does anyone know
if there were many Jewish cemeteries in LA at that time?

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Ellis Island Searchable Database #general

Jennifer A. Dropkin <jdropkin@...>
 

The exact database web site is www.wallofhonor.com, and www.ellisisland.org links directly to it.

I found four names of people to whom I was fairly sure I was related on the Wall of Honor.

The database can be searched, but only with exact spelling, and the location information
is only by country, which is also not standardized (but is still helpful).

I asked the Ellis Island Foundation to notify those who posted the names I was searching that I would like to
hear >from them. Of those requests, one poster declined to respond, one had moved, and two got in
touch with me. Those two posters were indeed relatives. We have reclaimed some
history and found new mysteries to research. We have become acquainted. And all it took was an
e-mail to the Ellis Island Foundation asking them to send along my name and address.

I would say that the database is worth using. It can be a long shot, but the payoff is
big.--

This may be old news to many of you, but I have just discovered that the web
site:

www.ellisisland.org

has a searchable database of names on the Wall of Honor at Ellis Island. >

The reason you have found nothing is this is The Black Forest (aka
Schwartzwald) which has never been in Hungary, but is in Bavaria (i.e.
Germany).

Dear David and Myriam,
As I'm not expert about the details of how and why the Germans
invaded Hungary in the beginning of 1944, it would be nice if you
could explain the rule that admiral Horthy had protecting or not the
Jews.

In Italy the Mussolini's defeat by fascist government caused the
german invasion, with the consequences for italian Jews you can imagine.
On the contrary, I know that in Bulgaria the local fascists resisted
the german plans against the Jews and probably it was the only country
under german domination to save most its jewish community

My best regards, Steven Grosz - Milano, Italy.

Dear Steven,
Regarding your question on the role of Horthy in connection with
the Hungarian jews: Hungary in the years of 1920-1940, i.e between
the two world wars had a very strong and prosperous middle class.
(By the way, these were the richest years in the history of culture
of this country: Some of the greatest physicist, like Neumann,Wiegner,
Teller and Szilard were born and educated there, the greatest
poets like Ady, Attila Jozsef,painters like Csontvary and huge
musicians like Bartok, Kodaly, Szigeti,Szekely Mihaly and many-many
others lived and created in this period). This society was based on
two elements: the gentries, most of whome once belonged to the
nobility and were or wished to be land-owners and the other group:
the bourgeoisie.To the latter belonged the large factory owners,
the merchants and the intellectuals, like journalists, artists
and educated professionals.

The hungarian society at all was based on these two pillars. The
majority of the bourgeoisie was Jew. Just as an example, more,
than 25% of the capital Budapest was Jewish - more,than 250.000
only in the city.

Horthy himself was rather deeply involved in and connected to
both groups.One of his sons, for example, had a Jewish wife.
Under the antisemitic pressure, the government accepted anti-
Jewish laws already in the 20-th years, which became harder after
the second world war broke out.The grown up Jewish male population
was taken to forced labour camps already in 1940. There they were
treated harshly,but the authorities refused to transfer them to
Germany or to other death camps in Easter Europe. Hence the great
majority of the Jews were still free and alive till March 1944
when the Germans occupied Hungary - in spite of beeing allies.
I tend to beleive, that the Hungarian government and Horthy did not
want to take part in the genocide of the Jews, though many
Hungarians did and gave hand to the murder of some 400.000 of us.

Sorry, I tried to be shorter,but I could not.In fact, you can find
a more autentic, detailed and comprehensive description on the
subject,for instance in the book of Raphael Patai; "The Jews in
Hungary". Still,you can perhaps also feel the emotions of a survivor.

The best regards:
David
