I would like a direct translation of the back of this postcard, but even a loose translation would be greatly appreciated. The photo on the front of the card appears to include a person by the name of Rose Sperling. Two children are pictured with her and the names of Jani and Susi appear to be written on the front of the card above each of the children.

Wisniowa Gora, October 2, 1938.
To remember me by I am sending you a picture of myself and my two little daughters.
From me, your unforgettable sister Dora Halpern (née Sperling). In the future I'll send you a picture of us all.

Please, dear sister and brother-in-law, don't forget us and help us out as much as you can. Don't be oblivious and remember me, because I have received no answer from you in a very long time. Please respond. Your sister Dora Halpern. My daughters send greetings to all of you.


Hope this has helped you.
1/21/2013 2:23 AM This is just to say that the name of the woman in the text is definitely DORA and not Rose, as you mention in your question.
