27347 Do you recognize?

5/22/2013 5:08 PM I have posted in ViewMate a (circa 1921) photograph of the Zagare Folk School.

I believe that my father Zvi (Hirsh/Girsh) SEGAL is in the top row, 10th from the left in the white outfit.

He left Zagare in 1929 for Australia where he joined his brother Aizyk and Uncle Henry Susman. He managed to get his mother Leah (nee Susman)and sister Malka out in 1935.


It would be wonderful to learn if someone can recognise a family member in this photograph of a community almost entirely wiped out in October 1941.

Warm regards,

Aron Segal

27336 Do you recognize?

5/22/2013 5:07 PM Does anyone recognise the children and if so who are they?

The photos may have been taken in Lithuania or Latvia but I think it was in England probably Manchester.

27354 Do you recognize?

5/22/2013 5:06 PM Apparently this individual is my late father's late mother's father named Mendel Maniszewicz (my Great Grandfather). Apaprently he immigrated to New York between the wars but because New York was not Jewish enough for him, he returned to Poland and presumably died in the Holocaust.
Does anyone recognize this man. My next image is of the text written on the rear of this postcard image for which I would very much appreciate a translation into English from what I assume is Yiddish? Thank you. Jay Sobel jaysobel@sympatico.ca

27420 Do you recognize?

5/19/2013 4:23 PM I am assuming that this photograph was taken in Zagare in the late 1920s.

My Auntie Malka SEGAL, born Zagare in 1905 is in the back row of this photograph, second from left. She was the daughter of Moshe (Moisey) SEGAL and Leya (nee ZUSMAN).

I do not know any of the other people in the photograph but I am assuming that they are family members but not her parents or her two brothers (Aizyk and Hirsh SEGAL) who would have already been in Australia when the photograph was taken.

Can anyone help, please?

Warm Regards,

27421 Do you recognize?

5/19/2013 4:23 PM My Auntie Malka SEGAL is seated on the ground, third from right, in this photographs of a group of girl friends and/or family members.

The photograph was taken in Zagare, perhaps in the late 1920s and more than likely in Naryshkin Park.

Malka was the daughter of Moisey (Moshe) SEGAL and Leya (nee ZUSMAN) and the elder sister of Aiyzik and Hirsh (Tvi) SEGAL.

Does anyone recognise anybody else in the photograph.

Warm regards,

27403 Photo Identification

5/19/2013 4:21 PM This is supposedly an image of my great-great grandparents that was passed down by my great grandfather. I know almost nothing about them. If you recognize them or even if a detail in the image could tell anything about them no matter how seemingly unimportant the information- I'd love to know.
I know them as "Ida and Morris Horwitz" based on an application my g-grandfather put in for a ssn but it is commonly accepted (though not proven) that he changed his name upon immigrating to the US in 1905 from Abromovich to Horwitz.
Morris and Ida were likely born in the 1860s and Louis has listed Kaunas and Taurage as his hometown on various documents so I assume this is where the portrait was taken.
They had 2 sons who immigrated to the US during the turn of the century and there were whispers about 4-5 other children who never made it to the US and perished either in a pogrom or the Holocaust (Louis only ever said "They were all killed together")
