Son of Holocaust Survivor to Discuss Trip Back to Family Hometown in Germany

Posted on July 24, 2018 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (0)

Galloway, N.J. _ Two children of Holocaust survivors, including Lennard Hammerschlag of Atlantic City, traced their family roots in July when they traveled with two Stockton University faculty members to their parents’ hometowns in Germany, bringing with them a Torah from the Lauenau synagogue, which Adolf Hammerschlag took with him into emigration almost 80 years ago.

Lennard Hammerschlag and Gail Rosenthal, director of the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center at Stockton, will speak about the trip at 7 p.m. Aug. 3 at the Shirat Hayam Synagogue, 700 N. Swarthmore Ave., Ventnor as part of the summer Salute to Stockton Lecture Series.  The talk is free and open to the public.

(The talk by Jessie Finch of Stockton, previously scheduled for Aug. 3, has been canceled.)


In 1938 and 1939, the Moritz Family from Frankfurt am Main and the Hammerschlag family from the village of Lauenau were lucky enough to escape Nazi Germany.  Both families settled in Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) where after the war, Lutz Hammerschlag met Wally Moritz. They fell in love, got married in 1948 and had four children.

Two of the children, Mark of Johannesburg, South Africa, and Lennard of Atlantic City and Cape Town, South Africa returned to Germany in July with Michael Hayse, Associate Professor of Historical Studies at Stockton, and Gail Rosenthal, Director of the Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center at Stockton.

In Frankfurt, the group visited the addresses where the Hammerschlags’ maternal grandparents, Ludwig and Rosie Moritz, lived with their daughter, Wally (born 1929). They also visited the memorial to Frankfurt Jews murdered in the Holocaust, which stands on the site of the synagogue to which the family belonged. It was destroyed by arson on Kristallnacht in November 1938.

In Lauenau, they were the invited guests of the town. The Hammerschlags’ ancestors were the first Jewish family to settle in the village, probably in the late 1700s. The prayer house for the small Jewish community of the town was in a room of their home, which was also the address of Adolf Hammerschlag’s textile business.

A highlight of the visit was the temporary return of the Torah scroll from the Lauenau synagogue. It was passed down to Hammerschlag’s children. In Lauenau, Pharmacist Thomas Berger has been instrumental in remembering the Jewish community that was destroyed and scattered by the Nazis.

Avanza Proyecto de Ley de Ruiz para Establecer Costos en Bolsas de un Solo Uso

Posted on June 22, 2018 at 10:00 AM Comments comments (0)

TRENTON - Una legislación presentada por la Senadora M. Teresa Ruiz que impodría un costo en todas las bolsas de un solo uso, y cuyos fondos serían destinados a la reducción de plomo en las escuelas y en las comunidades, pasó hoy en el Senado.

"Las bolsas de un solo uso son extremadamente dañinas para el medioambiente y son responsables de gran parte de los desechos de plástico que afectan nuestras ciudades y océanos", dijo la Senador Ruiz (D-Essex). "Muchos otros estados han aprobado tarifas o prohibiciones completas sobre las bolsas de un solo uso, y cuando vimos ciudades haciendo lo mismo por su cuenta, sabíamos que era hora de actuar como estado".

A partir del 1 de octubre del 2018, se exigirá a las tiendas que cobren $ 0.05 por cada bolsa de un solo uso entregada a un cliente. El proyecto de ley se aplicaría a cadenas de tiendas, farmacias, supermercados o establecimientos minoristas que tengan más de 2,000 pies cuadrados de espacio comercial.

Los clientes inscritos como participantes en el Programa de Asistencia Nutricional Suplementaria (SNAP), el Programa de Nutrición Suplementaria Especial para Mujeres, Bebés y Niños (WIC), o el Programa Work First New Jersey estarían exentos de la tarifa.

Se les requeriría a las tiendas que muestren el número de bolsas proporcionadas y la tarifa total cobrada en el recibo entregado al cliente. Los operadores de la tienda se quedarían con $0.01 de la tarifa cobrada, y los $ 0.04 restantes irían al Director de Impuestos. Hasta un 1 por ciento de los ingresos podría destinarse a la financiación del programa, y ​​el resto iría al "Fondo de Reducción de Plomo para Escuelas Saludables y la Comunidad".

El Departamento de Protección Ambientales (DEP, por sus siglas en inglés) utilizará el dinero en el fondo para la reducción del plomo, en consulta con el Departamento de Asuntos Comunitarios y el Departamento de Salud, para reducir el plomo en las escuelas y las comunidades.

El proyecto de ley, S-2600, requeriría que el DEP establezca un programa de información pública para informar sobre los efectos ambientales nocivos de las bolsas de un solo uso y alentar a los consumidores a cambiar a bolsas reusables. El programa también proporcionará información sobre la tarifa cobrada por las bolsas de un solo uso.

Las comunidades que han implementado prohibiciones de bolsas de un solo uso antes de la firma de la factura quedarían exentas de derechos, las prohibiciones de bolsas locales existentes permanecerían vigentes.

El proyecto de ley fue liberado del Senado con votos de 23-16.
