Does anyone recognize persons in this photograph taken at a Betar meeting. My Uncle Alfred Chimowicz is the man in the back row with metal on his Polish uniform, the girl looking back at the picture of Trumpledor is Masha Glitzenstein, my uncle's first cousin.

Cilla Chimowicz (Glizenstein) is also in this picture.
Glicenstein is the alternate spelling often used.

10/10/2013 6:36 PM Hello Rosa,
Someone sent me your Viewfind photo - I don't recognize anyone but I have been researching the Glicensteins for many years. I have encountered Cilla Chimowicz and Israel Salmen Glicensztajn in my research but don't know if they're actually related to me. (Our family came from Konin.) Israel's parents were Szymon (b 1890) & Mindl Kopel (1891-1943). THey lived in Kalisz and had three children in the '30s who all perished. Israel was one of 10 children - I have more of this genealogy, let me know if you are interested.
