My grandmother (Natalia Furst, later married name was Hollo) is in this photo, third from left top row. She belonged to the sports club named Hakoah, and I believe this group sponsored hikes into the countryside around Vienna in the 1920s.

This photo is of one such hike, and I wonder if anyone knows anything about this organization, its membership, and (very long chance . . . I realize) maybe recognize the people in the photo?
