This is a cross-post: Please respond *directly* to Dr. Lotz. -sh ----------------------------Original message---------------------------- From: Rohrbacher <email@example.com> ----------------------------------------- Von: Dr. Rainer E. Lotz <Rainer-Lotz@gmx.de> via "Safran" I need help on the following important research project: Between 1934 and 1937 the Judischer Kulturbund in Berlin operated its own record label called "Lukraphon". I try to document the company history as a book, reconstruct the catalog, which is of obvious historical importance, and to reissue the original recordings on a CD to accompany the book. The owner of the Lukra company was one H. Lewin, who operated from Berlin's Friedrichstrasse 208, and from Grenadierstrasse 28, respectively. He also owned the "Semer" record label for which I also need details. I try to establish Lewin's biography. He is said to have emigrated to London, but in spite of very serious efforts we cannot track him down after he reached British soil; he may have moved on to some other country. Indeed he may be the Lewine who promoted the Hed-Arzi label in the Palestine Israel. Also, I need to get in touch with any private individual or public archive holding original discs on the "Lukraphon" and "Semer" labels. We have located many of the discs but need to locate the remainder as well. Here are, in alphabetical order, the names of some of the personality, popular, classical and synagogal performers known to have had their recordings issued on "Lukraphon": Edgar Alexander, Kantor Israel Bakon (Warsaw), Oberkantor Josef Borin, Heinz Fenster, Dora Gerson, Ferris Gondosch (Gondic), Channa Kipnis, Marion Koegel, Oberkantor S. Kupfer (Leipzig, London), Oberkantor Wolf, Lewi-Leoni (Mannheim, London), Paula Lindberg, Ludwig Misch, Sigmund Petruschka (Shabtai) (Sid Kay), Oberkantor Pinkas (Sofia), Oberkantor Salomo Pinkasowicz, Willy Rosen, Joseph Rosenstock, Mordechai Roth, Kurt Sanderling, Maurice Schwartz (New York), Rudolf Schwarz, Oberkantor Schwarzmer-Lengyel (New York), Werner Seeling-Bass, Peter Upcher,Andreas Weissgerber. Of course, I would love to obtain precise biographical information on some of the above, but notably on Edgar Alexander, Channa Kipnis, Oberkantor S. Kupfer, Ludwig Misch, Oberkantor [?Alberto] Pinkas, Mordechai Roth, Oberkantor Josef Schwarzmer-Lengyel, Peter Upcher, and Andreas Weisgerber. Of course you may communicate in German language. Thanks for your help. Dr Rainer E.
