This family sent this postcard in 1939 and were never heard from again. The woman in the center seems to be the same woman in the earlier photo (viewmate 24875)(holding the baby in the earlier photo). I believe she is my gg-paternal aunt but I do not know her first or married name. Her maiden name was WELLER.

It pains me they perished and I cannot give names to any of them.

(see postcard back - viewmate 24877)

11/15/2012 3:09 AM What a picture! It reminds me of all the pictures that belonged to my parents who were from Plunge, Lithuania. They looked exactly the same. It's heartbreaking that the people in the picture remained nameless...
I can introduce you to our project of collecting the names of all perished Jews of Plunge.
If you are interested, please contact me privately elyaemma@gmail.com
Good Luck

I would say, the daughter with the children in the first photo, is the older lady sitting down in this photo. But stick with it you will get there, it took me 13 years from not knowing anything to now knowing everything
