Re: RE 1946 World Jewish Congress Survey section on Transylvania

Thank you Megan for joining my search and coming to my aid.

I am still waiting to hear back from Yad Vashem.

This material is for  thesis research, specifically regarding Kolozsvar(Cluj), and I will need every single page of the records. Attila Gido, published a review of the same in 2010 on the Romanian side; the report is 181 pages and he tells me that there is more material available. His publication may be found here:

Re: RE 1946 World Jewish Congress Survey section on Transylvania

If you are referring to the 16-page questionnaires, the records are at Yad Vashem.

Are you looking for specific people?  The names in this collection were indexed by USHMM as part of the their World Memory Project project with Ancestry.com.  You can search the index http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=2425.  There is a link in the records to order copies of the originals.

RE 1946 World Jewish Congress Survey section on Transylvania

I am trying to locate the Archives of the 1946 WJC Survey of Transylvania- Cluj, Oradea,and Carei in Israel.                                                                                          Would appreciate finding out where in Israel I might access them.

Re: Ranking causes of antisemitism that lead to genocide

Clare writes:

"Professor Greenspan has chastised me for alleging that antisemitism has been found among social democrats. He seems to believe that the demonizing of Jews is limited to ultra-Rightists such as Joseph Welch, founder of the John Birch Society."

I don't think a fair reading of my post would lead to the conclusion that I believe "demonizing of Jews is limited to ultra-Rightists."  Quite the contrary, as history has documented all too well.
