22146 Translation - German

4/1/2012 4:07 PM This is my great great grand mothers marriage- I already had it translated - the translator says it has symbols on Friederike and Gollieb Marks indicating Jewish ancestry. I'll like to know more about these symbols. As I believe the Nazi used these symbols to identify the Jewish people.
Dittmer's mother objected to this marriage,( as his father was already dead ) while Jewish cigar maker Gottlieb approved.

22229 Photo Identification

3/28/2012 5:29 PM We'd like somebody to help us identify the date, or TIME range, in which this photo was taken. The Magen David pin that the boy on the left (in the photo) is wearing on his right lapel and a wristwatch may provide some clues. The red (?) scarf that his sister is wearing may also.

Also, does anybody knows of the significance of the magen david or scarf - if they were representative of some political affiliation, zionist affiliation, etc.


Thank you.

3/28/2012 5:29 PM Please translate Hebrew portion of tombstone inscription. Sorry I had to crop image so closely to meet ViewMate restrictions on size, but if what you can see of the overall grave design might reveal something about the deceased, that would also be helpful. This tombstone is located in New York, USA. View the post with its 3 responses
