Would appreciate a translation of the writing on the back of the photo. The women in the photo appears in a number of family photos with my grandmother, Bella, and I am trying to discover the relationship.

The language here is Hebrew not Yiddish, although I think it is written by someone relatively new to the language, as there are spelling and grammatical errors. (not that I should talk!)


My dear Bella, I wrote to you saying that I would send you pictures from my short holiday, but I don't have any of them. My husband took them and gave them away, without my knowledge. So, I am sending you a different picture and am asking that you send me some.

I will order more pictures and then I will send them to you.

From me, your loving friend,
Yehudith.(Judith) Albrech ( or Alberg)



Good luck in solving your mystery, Jack
