22850 Translation - German

5/13/2012 4:12 PM I need help for deciphering and translating the short note, written with a pencil.

The mainletter was written from Deutsch Krone (Pommern) by Helene HOLZHEIM, born LEVY, on 7th august 1934, to his cousin (my grandfather) Bernhard SALINGER, which had just emmigrated from Hamburg to Dijon (Burgundy, France), and had also his first son, few days before (my dad).

The small note, written with a pencil, isfrom Eva, SALINGER, the sister of my grand-father, and this is the only memory that he kept from her.

Obviously she was unable to run away from Germany, and perished in Chelmno KZ in May 1942.

i can only decipher few words (lieber Bernhard ü lb Helma), but the handwriting, partly in Sutterlin, is too hard for me !

I don't post the main letter, because i do have allready a pretty good loose translation, but if you need it too understand the short note, please ask, and i'll mail it to you privately.

22840 Translation - Hebrew

5/13/2012 4:10 PM Seeking opinion on the accuracy of the translation, PLEASE SEE BELOW. Key portions don't make sense to me.
'who lives' (Eli or Nisan? lives or lived?)
'the Capital' (Eli died in Cincinnati, and I think I see the word Grodno in there, so I think this refers to Nisan)
'Nefarzinitze' (good transliteration? a real place, or something like "Paradise"?)
'Great Vishfing' (good transliteration? Is that a name, or a title?)
CURRENT TRANSLATION: "This is written from my heart, sent to my father, the reknown and educated Eliezer Elihu, son of Nisan Effron, who lives near the Capital and is now in Nefarzinitze, near the settlement of Paplaftse, property of the great Vishfing.
My mother Chana Esther, Yahrzeit the 24th of Tevet in 1902, Amdur, 5663.
My grandmother's Yahrzeit, 6th of Tevet in 5636 in Besterstevich. Her name was Chana, Mintchike, 1876."


Chana Etta and Nisan are my g-g-grandparents. THANKS.

22838 Translation - German

5/13/2012 4:08 PM This is a postcard sent to my grandmother Helma (Wilhelmine) SALINGER née SPIELMANN (my grand-mother), by a SPIELMANN (but who precisely?) probably from a transit camp, in nothern France, in october 1942.
I need help for deciphering and translating.
The card was writen with pencil, and the support is really dirty and dusty.
I tried to get the most readable image, but if you want, i can send you by email, the original scanned file, for a better digital cleaning and/or better contrast control.
I post also an other postcard, of august 1942, from Richard SPIELMANN, which could be (or not! ) the same writter.
