22600 Translation - Hebrew

4/25/2012 4:35 PM Hi,

PAGE 1 :
This is an introduction of a book of poems written by my wife's gggg grandpa Joshua Heschel Kuttner of Lissa. Joshua was a descendant of the Maharal of Prague through is grand mother Michla and I beleive he wrote about his family in this introduction.
Thanks to a "yichus brieve" discovered last month by my wife's grandmother, we know now Joshua's direct lineage to the Maharal of Prague. It is by looking for some of those ancestor names that I came across my ancestor's book. Sometimes genealogy research brings you to some lovely unexpected paths.

Mother family branch :
Rabbi Joshua Heschel Kuttner in Lissa, Michla ?
Rabbi Shaltiel Isaacs in Peiser
Rabbi Joshua Heschel Hakohen Katz in Peiser
Rabbi Jacob Mordechai Hacohen Katz in Brody and Posen
Rabbi Napftali Hacohen Katz in Posen and Frankfurt

Father family branch :
Rabbi Joshua Heschel Kuttner in Lissa
Rabbi Aaron Kuttner in Wreschen
???? Rabbi Shalom in Zulz (Biala)

Thanks a lot

22605 Translation - German

4/25/2012 4:35 PM Page 5 of a series of 8 pages handed to my father at the end of WW II by a man in a town that his U.S. Army unit had occupied. Looking for an accurate translation to determine if these pages are of any interest to Holocaust scholars (and just to know, after all of this time, what they say).

Pages 5-8 in this series were pinned together.

22589 Interpretation

4/25/2012 4:33 PM Can anyone tell me anything about this pendant?
What sort of person would have owned it, what its significance was, where it was made and when etc? I'm hoping it may give me some clues about the birthplace and religion of its original owner, who I believe was either my gt gt grandfather Charles Stephen FRIEDMAN/FREEDMAN/FREEMAN (c1842-1906) or his wife Susannah SPEAKMAN (1842-1891. What I know of Charles is outlined here: http://goo.gl/hw3j3

The pendant seems to be of pewter, with a diameter of about 1.85 inches (4.7 cm) and its principal design feature is a Star of David, or Magen David. In the centre of the star is a Hamsa or “Hand of Miriam”, and between the points of the star are six apotropaic all-seeing eyes. Two holes in the “palm” of the hamsa look as though they may have contained gemstones, and there are
indications that the pendant may have been gold-plated or gilded, though the specks of gold colouration could, just possibly, be corrosion.

22580 Tombstone

4/25/2012 4:31 PM This picture is a little bit blurred. The original is blurred too, i do not have a better one. (its an old picture and the tombstone in gliwice is gone as far as i know) Sorry for that.
I am interested in a translation of the Hebrew please. Maybe there is more information in addition to the readable one.

Thank you so much!
