Miskolc

 The last Jews of Miskolc
http://www.aritapiero.com/the-last-jews-of-miskolc.html Seat of Borsod county, Hungary. Founded by a steady stream of immigrants from Moravia from the 1720s on, the Jewish community of Miskolc grew slowly during the eighteenth century. Until the 1820s, its only functioning communal institutions were the burial society, founded in 1767, and a seven-man executive committee appointed in 1769 to collect the Toleration Tax on behalf of the royal crown. The community had no rabbi until the 1770s, and, until 1784, only a single school, which had been founded in 1734. A Josephinian Normalschule, established in 1784 and highly praised by Ferenc Kazinczy, superintendant of schools for the Habsburg government and a leading figure in the Magyar national revival, functioned for just three years.

According to the census of 1848, the three most common occupations for Jews were in commerce, tavern keeping, and artisanry. Jewish artisans first organized in 1813 and were recognized as an official guild by the royal crown and the county diet in 1836. Jews were among the city’s leading commercial and industrial entrepreneurs. Joseph Lichtenstein, for example, was a cofounder in 1845 of the first credit bank in Miskolc

It has been just  published in Israel a new book about Satoraljaujhely by Mr. Mnashe Davidovits:

It provides two lists:
1)*Martyrs* and
2)*Survivors*

As there are not deportation lists available (till now), what Mr. Davidovits did was to collect the birth certificates from the children born between 1928 and 1944:they were the most vulnerable ones (age 0 till 16) together with their mothers. The author also collected information from Yad Vashem and from survivors' testimonies.

The book includes important sections from  Meir SAS' famous book, that is out of print (Toronto,1986) and a classic by itself, and also sections from Mr. Csiki's book.  The book is trilingual: English, Hungarian and Hebrew.  From a posting on JewishGen by Andre Carciente andrescarciente@yahoo.com  Editor's Note: Mr. Carciente does not mention the name of the book.

Ujhely

 "In 1761, a Jew Philep Izsak (note: in this period, any official record would have the notation "Judaeus" in front of the name of any Jew) and his wife, Judovics Erzsebet, bought a house in Paloty Street from the Honourable (lit: nagysagos) Szegedy Johanna.  There is a mention from a generation earlier in a less official form. 

Teutsch David, an Ujhely resident who passed away in 1860, mentioned in his will that his grandfather settled in Ujhely in 1734, when there were only two Jewish families there.  Later, one find more frequent mention of Jews buying real property.  Here, according to the city's registry book, on May 8, 1799, Kozba Gabor and his wife sold their house in Cserko street to the Jew David Rabbe and Markus Anna, along with the cellar.

The first mention of the existence of a Jewish school in Ujhely is from 1744, in the record book of the steward of the Regeczi and Pataki estate (Conscriptio Pratorum).  Here it mentions that in the "Willow Tree meadow," which was owned by the city, there was a small section set aside for the Jewish school.

The above mentioned documents cast an interesting light on land ownership by the Jews in the mid-18th century.  It suggest that the claim that Jews could not buy or inherit land in the earliest times is a fallacy. It is possible that Zemplen County was more liberal in this regard than the laws of the rest of the country, and followed a different rule. "
