2/14/2010 This note is written on the back of a photo that belonged to my late grandmother. I believe it is from her sister as I can determine the surname Block in the signiture. The only given names of her sisters that I am aware of are Miriam(Mere)and Cherna. What else does the note say?
Much thanks for any help.

14575 Translation - Other

2/14/2010 UPDATED: The consensus among the translators is that the text is in Russian and that it says (approximately) "This is Iza with his father and mother." --------

UPDATED: Regarding the train car (if it is a train car) one Genner has translated the painted words in this way: "Lutzek 2" /"Pesach" /"CCCP" (U.S.S.R.) I don't know how to interpret the information - but it's very interesting. -----------

On the chance that someone will have information about the painted words on the wall -or will have a different take on the translation- I'll wait a couple of days before I archive this post.
Thanks for the help! --------

The people in the picture could be from either side of my family. My mother's family (LEBOWITZ and KAMINSKY) were from
Austria-Hungary and from the Ukraine (Kiev Gub). My father's family (WEINER and EINBUND) were from the Belarus region in Russia.

14511 Translation - German

2/14/2010 Perhaps there is one of my ancestors featured in the group pictured here. This might be revealed if the text is translated and the country of origin of the uniforms are identified. I now have the translation, know that Auguszta Sanitorium is located in Debrecen, Hungary, but don't know the country of origin of the uniforms. The postcard is addressed to Regina Diamant , my father's mother living in Vienna at the time and my father would have been 18 months old. View the post, there are no responses
