Hohensalza Prison Record translation help needed

Post by familyfinder » 23 Dec 2020 18:48

Hello all,

I have a father, Stanislaus Walewski, and two of his sons' prison records that I'd appreciate help deciphering. Especially, I see that something happened to all three of them on 5 June 1940, and I'd would love some context and clarity on what it is that happened to them on that date if there is anyone who can help translate these records.

Thanks in advance!

Noel

Looks like they were released on that day.

Hello again,

Here is another prison record from Recklinghausen judicial prison for one of the sons, Vincentz/Vinzens that might help clarify things if someone could help me translate it as well.

Thanks again,

Noel

Hi,
All of them are accused for robbery, threat with weapons and looting.
I give you the details after Christmas, don't have the time right now. Please wait.

Best regards

Hi Armin,

Thank you for your help! This was soooo hard to read, and not knowing German I had no idea what the writing could be. I am excited to have the description of what Wizenti looked like--to be able to picture him. Also to know what happened to him.

Thanks so much,

Noel

This is index card 3 for:

Walewski, Stanislaus

D.o.B: 14.4.73
in: Biedrusko. District: Posen
Religion: k(atholic)
Profession: Worker
Residence: P....? District Hohensalza
Spouse: Franziska
Children: 12
Relatives: spouse
Height: 172 cm

Eyes: brown
Chin: hard
Shape: strong
Face: oval
Nose:
Mouth:
Teeth: gaps
Hair: blond
Forehead: high
Ears:
Language: German and Polish
Special marks: unreadable

Obviously he was already in prison 3 times before. He was taken into custody on 14.3.40 for Criminal Code 252/253, predatory theft and blackmailing.

The date 5.6.40 is the date, where all three were transferred to penitentiary Warthestadt (Wronki).

Index card 4 Shows again Vinzenz Walewski. He was sentences to 2 years for robbery and served his time in
Neusustrum Lager V, which belonged to the so-called "Emslandlager".

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emslandlager

On 4.7.1941 He was transferred to Prison Recklinghausen.

That is all I can read. There are a lot of abbreviations which I don't know. Hope this will help you a bit.

Best regards
Armin

Dear Armin,

Thank you so much! I can't tell you how much I appreciate that you took the time to translate all of this for me. This is such a huge help--I never would have been able to figure any of this out without you. Thank you also for the link and more of the background information.

Gratefully yours,

Noel
