I am looking for a translation of the text on this postcard. It was signed by Jacob Reichman, and was addressed to his mother Helena and his siblings, including my grandfather, Michel. I think the child in the postcard has a similar name as Michel, and this child is Jacob's son, my grandfather's nephew.

2/12/2013 7:00 AM I am afraid it is German, not Polish. From what I can read the photo was supposed to be a kind of souvenir, and there are some names mentioned... but it would be better if someone fluent in German had a look at this text.

mein lieber Sohn Motele

As remembrance for dear mother and dear children
my dear son Motele sends his foto for the dear grandmother and aunts and uncles and friends [could be jiddish words]
and asks for a photo of you.
