Military records help identify some of the works hidden in Munich apartment

Mawyl's insight:

more pictures of the record on the HARP FB page

HARP was co-founded in September 1997 in Washington, DC, by Ori Z. Soltes, Willi Korte, and Marc Masurovsky to document cultural property losses suffered by Jewish individuals, families, and institutions between 1933 and 1945 at the hands of the National Socialists and their Fascist allies across continental Europe; to conduct historical research into the wartime and postwar fate of stolen, confiscated, misappropriated cultural property.

San Carlos de Bariloche : when Priebke was still hiding in Argentina's haven for Nazis

San Carlos de Bariloche : when Priebke was still hiding in Argentina's haven for Nazis | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it

Nestled in Argentina's snow-capped Andes, overlooking a vast pristine lake, this picturesque ski town has long been a favorite of Latin American jet-setters. No wonder it was chosen as the site for the recent annual meeting of presidents from Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries.

But despite Bariloche's many gingerbread houses, chocolate and fondue shops, pine forests and jagged peaks, which have led many visitors to compare it to Bavaria, the town's reputation has been undermined by an 82-year-old former Nazi who has become its most infamous resident.

Erich Priebke, a former SS captain who has lived in Bariloche for 50 years and has admitted taking part in the killings of 335 Italian civilians at the Ardeatine Caves outside Rome in 1944, is under house arrest here as the Argentine Supreme Court decides whether he will be extradited to Italy.

For decades Argentines have quietly referred to Bariloche as a haven for Nazis who fled Germany after World War II. But it was not until two years ago, when Mr. Priebke was uncovered by a team from ABC News television, that the world began to associate this town with Nazis.


Mawyl's insight:

 This 1995 NYT  article reminds us that Argentina has been a safe haven for Nazi and no one bothers there.

"You'd have to be either crazy or blind and deaf to think that Bariloche does not have its share of Nazis," said Rosario Zaballa, 48, a store clerk who has lived here all her life. "They don't bother anybody, but they are here."

Swastikas are regularly scrawled on walls and even appear in some public artwork. Throughout the town, people tell tales of Germans who still hold secret celebrations of Hitler's birthday on April 20."


Priebke  was deported to Italy and sentenced to life in prison in 1998 but because of his age was allowed to serve his sentence under house arrest

The Vienna Project —

The Vienna Project — | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it

The Vienna Project is a new social action memorial project.  Slated to begin in October of 2013 and conclude in May of 2014, the project is to be situated on the streets of Vienna and along the Danube Canal.  If you are interested in participating in our Sidewalk Installation Project, click here.

The Vienna Project will be the first public art memorial of its kind in Europe and the first public naming memorial in Vienna to symbolically represent, in a differentiated format, the multiple groups of persecuted victims of National Socialism, while also naming individual victims and dissidents on record within a given country, murdered between 1938-1945. Forging a dynamic relationship between different disciplines: art, video, new technologies, typography, web design, street theater, sound art, history, archival research, and Holocaust education, The Vienna Project is envisioned as a “living” memorial based on a participatory model of engagement. READ MORE…

I am quiet curious about the Digital Memorial as from what I understood of the project; only murdered victims were recorded, as if exile was no trauma..

Sephardic Jewry and the Holocaust: The Future of the Field

Sephardic Jewry and the Holocaust: The Future of the Field | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it

Co-organized through the Sephardic Studies Initiative of the University of Washington’s Samuel & Althea Stroum Jewish Studies Program and the Museum’s Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies, this symposium explores the unique history of Sephardic Jewry and the Holocaust.

Although extensive research has been conducted on the Holocaust in recent decades, the experience of Sephardic Jews on the periphery of occupied Europe, along the Mediterranean, and in Vichy-controlled colonies in North Africa has remained relatively unexplored. Understanding the Sephardic experience during the Holocaust forces us to refine our assumptions about its scope and the qualitative differences in the persecution, destruction, resistance, and survival of varied Jewish communities under occupation.

En Belgique ça se discute au Sénat, en France il a suffi d'une déclaration du Président de la République. 

Le bilan des déportations en Belgique 30 000 personnes déportées, majoritairement comme en France des réfugiés étrangers. A la veille de Mai 1940, seul 6% des juifs sont Belges.

Ne sont pas comptabilisés les juifs déportés vers la France le 10 mai 1940 dont la majorité a été déportée de Drancy en 42 et 43  http://jewishtraces.org/10-mai-1940/ 

Cet épisode honteux de l'histoire Belge reste encore dans la zone grise des décisions xénophobes et antisémites de l'époque.

Portraits croisés Regards et Lieux, un parcours lycéen à Auschwitz Birkenau | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it

Leah Déchelette jeune photographe diplômée de l'école de Condé à Lyon a suivi un des voyages organisé en Pologne par la Marche des Vivants en 2012. Elle en a tiré 22 dyptiques qui seront exposés en janvier dans l'atrium de la Mairie du 8e arrondissement à Lyon.

L’orientation du programme élaboré par les éducateurs vers les valeurs de la vie se traduit par l’incitation des participants à découvrir la richesse et la diversité de la vie juive en Pologne avant la destruction. 

Ces portraits croisés avec des lieux, des instants partagés et des rencontres intenses sont autant de moments qui ouvrent à la réflexion sur les voyages de mémoire et d’histoire comme facteurs éducatifs et humanistes.

Roth et Zweig sans pitié dangereuse

Roth et Zweig sans pitié dangereuse | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it
Lettres de survie des deux écrivains autrichiens.

Quand Hitler arrive au pouvoir, l’écrivain juif autrichien Joseph Roth, l’auteur de la Marche de Radetzky, publié l’année précédente, fait aussitôt le constat qui s’impose : «Mises à part les catastrophes privées - notre existence matérielle et littéraire est détruite - tout cela mène à une nouvelle guerre. Je ne donne plus cher de notre peau. On a réussi à laisser gouverner la barbarie. Ne vous faites aucune illusion. C’est l’enfer qui gouverne.» (Février 1933.) Celui à qui il s’adresse, son ami Stefan Zweig, également juif et autrichien, tergiverse comme tant d’autres. Son humanisme et ses intérêts le conduisent à ne pas voir tout à fait - à ne pas vouloir voir - le nazisme tel qu’il est. Lire la suite

Help us find / Aidez nous à trouver Maja Monic

Help us find / Aidez nous à trouver  Maja Monic | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it
Mawyl's insight:

This is a long chain Annabela wrote from Argentina, one of her friend, Paula asked for help: her mother Irene now 77 is looking for her friend Maja Monic who might have moved to Canada at the end of the 40's or ealy 50's


My name is Paula Rinaldi and my mother is a Holocaust Survivor from the Warsaw Ghetto, her name is Irene Dab. She was born in 1935 and she survived thanks to her father and many non-Jewish families who took care of her during the war. She used to have a very close friend in Warsaw, Maja Monic who also survived the war and met together again in France in 1947, sharing 6th grade at school in Versailles. That was the last time they saw each other. At that moment Maja’s mother met a Canadian man who she got married with and were planning to go to Canada. My mother left France before them, so she doesn’t know exactly when did Maja finally go to Canada.

My mother is now 77 years old, lives in Argentina since 1948, has just published a book telling her story, and is trying to find Maja.

Do you think you can help us? Do you have any Maja Monic registered in Canada? Her mother’s name was Rozyczka (married in Poland to Monic), but we don’t know her single last name nor the second marriage’s. She must have entered Canada during 1948-1949-1950.

Here is a picture of Maja taken during 1947, Maja also kept one of my mother’s so they wouldn’t forget each other.

We will be very grateful if you can help us. Thanks a lot. Kind regards,

Paula Rinaldi
Argentina

LES PASSEURS DE MEMOIRE. Histoire d'une déportation
Par Claire Zalamansky
Réalisation : Véronique Vila
 
Diffusion sur France Culture, Sur les Docks,
Mercredi 17 avril 2013, 17h
Le jour où les sbires de Vichy sont venus arrêter mon père, dans ce bourg de la Drôme où il croyait trouver le refuge de la zone libre, je n'avais pas quatre ans. A cet âge, on n'est pas tout à fait sorti de sa coquille, on ne comprend pas grand chose au vaste monde. La mémoire est une cire vierge, le tiroir ne s'est pas encore ouvert, où ranger le linge des souvenirs. Pourtant, j'ai gardé l'image précise de cette journée, gravée à l'eau forte. Mon père revenait de quelque marché des environs. Il m'avait rapporté un jeu de cubes en bois et, pour ma soeur, une dînette, des petits plats de terre cuite. Ils étaient trois, qui l'attendaient. Le chef tenait fermement son rôle, le deuxième devait être l'idiot du village qu'on avait affublé d'un képi, le troisième, au milieu des larmes de ma mère, de ma soeur et de mon père, ricanait nerveusement – il aurait préféré être ailleurs, de toute évidence, il se rendait compte de l'ignominie de sa besogne. Moi, je ne comprenais rien à ce qui se tramait là, sous mes yeux, j'étais à des années-lumière... -- enfant, on veut rester dans le lait et la lumière – je refusais confusément la chape de ténèbres qui s'abattait sur la maison, je repoussais le linceul d'ombre. Sur la table, mes dés de bois avaient jeté leur sort.

Polish Film Stirs Debate on Shoah Complicity

Polish Film Stirs Debate on Shoah Complicity | Archives  de la Shoah | Scoop.it
A film about a Polish village whose residents help massacre their Jewish neighbours in World War II has forced Poles to confront one of the most troubling episodes of their past.

Caption : Jedwabne Massacre July 1941
Mawyl's insight:

"“Poklosie”, or Aftermath, touches on a subject that many Poles prefer not to discuss - cases where Poles were complicit with the Nazis in rounding up, and in some cases, killing Jews." Guess what the answer is yes, what a surprise !

According to Morde-khai Tenenbaum, commander of the Jewish Fighting Organization in the Bialystok ghetto, whose memoirs were published shortly after the war:

If it had not been for the Poles, for their aid--passive and active--in the "solution" of the Jewish problem in Poland, the Germans would never have dared to do what they did. It was they, the Poles, who called out "Yid" at every Jew who escaped from the train transporting him; it was they who caught the unfortunate wretches, who rejoiced at every Jewish misfortune--they were vile and contemptible.7

A somewhat more moderate but still strongly critical view was expressed by Emanuel Ringelblum in his Polish-Jewish Relations during the Second World War, written in hiding on the "Aryan" side in 1944:

The Polish people and the Government of the Republic of Poland were incapable of deflecting the Nazi steam-roller from its anti-Jewish course. But the question is permissible whether the attitude of the Polish people befitted the enormity of the calamities that befell the country's citizens. Was it inevitable that the Jews, looking their last on this world as they rode in the death trains speeding from different parts of the country to Treblinka or other places of slaughter, should have had to witness indifference or even joy on the faces of their neighbors? In the summer of 1942, when carts packed with captive Jewish men, women and children moved through the streets of the capital, did there really need to be laughter from the wild mobs resounding from the other side of the ghetto walls, did there really have to prevail such blank indifference in the face of the greatest tragedy of all time?
