27095 Photo Identification

4/24/2013 4:29 PM This was in my great grandmother's photo album. Monya nee Izralowicz (born Szczekociny, Poland 1894, died Cleveland, Ohio 1981). Her husband was Meyer "Max" (Koltonski) "Kolt" (born Jedrzejow, Poland, 1889, died Cleveland, Ohio 1951).

I was hoping someone might recognize this man or shed some light on it. It is a postcard format with standard info on the reverse printed in English, except for "VITAVA" printed around "place stamp here". (Anyone know what this may mean or where it could have been taken?)

Additional family names from Poland were: Wajntrob, Weinfeld, Dembowski and Abramovitch. There are also Lenchner and Eichler family in Canada...

Thank you,
Karen Katz Wyman

27096 Do you recognize?

4/24/2013 4:29 PM I believe that this may be a Koltonski family member but do not know for certain. (The name was changed to Kolt by my great grandfather Max when he immigrated to the US in 1913.).

The Koltanski Family was from Jedrzejow, Kielce Gubernia, Poland.

I believe this may be Max's brother was Yizrach Koltonski (ca. 1885-1943) who was married to Malka Dembowska. Both perished in Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Thank you.

27094 Do you recognize?

4/24/2013 4:28 PM This was in my great grandmother's photo album. Monya nee Izralowicz (born Szczekociny, Poland 1894-1981), married Meyer "Max" Koltonski "Kolt", (1889-1951).

I was hoping someone might recognize family members or a location from the studio.

I believe it may be one of Monya's sisters: Chaia, who married (I do not know his name) and stayed in Poland, but I am not certain.

Additional family names are: Wajntrob, Weinfeld, Dembowski, Abramovitch. There are no additional markings. Family also lived in Szczekociny (Kielce Gubernia) and Sosnowiec.

Thank you,
