18624 Do you recognize?

4/10/2011 4:11 PM Hello everyone!
I am from Chile, trying to find genealogy in my family. Very enigmatic story in a few words...my grandfather, Pawel Kusz, born in Katowice, Poland and who came to Chile in 1948, used to say he was from Jewish ascendence. When I met my family in Poland in 2003, I find out they are not and they never heard such fact, but there are those two pictures in the family album in Poland and several ''rumour-stories'' in the family. I have no idea who these kids might be in the picture, but the kid on the left keeps a strong resemblance with my mother. I am also uploading a picture that was next to it, in which appears Mr. Rabi Ben Zion Halberstam, who is the only person whose identity I know. But why those two pics were in my family album? Is there any connection with my family?
Trying to find out, hopefully I will!
Surnames related: Kusz, Lipka, Janowska.
Thank you! Any other suggestion of any kind, thanks!

4/10/2011 4:11 PM The person on the left was Mr Rabi Ben Zion Halberstam, next to whom we assume was his son.
This picture is connected to another picture I uploaded where appear some kids apparently from his yeshiva.
There are rumours of Judaism in my family from Poland and these two pictures are the family album. I'd like to know if any of you know anything this and the other picture I uploaded.
The related surnames are: Kusz, Lipka and Janowska (my family) and of course, Halberstam, the Rabi's surname, but would like to know what's the connection...
Thanks in advance!
