24105 Translation - German

8/22/2012 4:38 PM I would like to know the word (or possibly two words) indicated by the yellow arrow near the lower right corner of the image. The word(s) look something like "Wimthschaftemin" - followed with the phrase "bei Jakob Hirsch".

I believe this woman (Rachl Lowy) may have been the mistress/wife of Jakob Hirsch, not permitted to marry due the Familanten law.

This is from her death record. I am also posting the Anmerkung field from the same record, which could shed some light on this. (see VM # 24106)

8/22/2012 4:38 PM I would be interested in a transcription and/or translation of any parts of this that can be unserstood.

This is the Anmerkung field from a death record for Rachl Lowy, whom I believe was the mistress/wife of Jakob Hirsch (not permitted to marry due to Familianten law). I have posted another portion of this record as VM # 24105.

8/22/2012 4:33 PM This card was sent to Matylda Sicherman in Biharnagybajom by Jacob Isak Sicherman in Cracow. He was in poor health and was hospitalized soon after. On the picture he wrote “1914-1915” and identified the soldiers holding flags--Turkish, German, Austrian. A lion lies in foreground, a laurel leaf and sword beneath its paws, resting on a ledge bearing Emperor Franz Joseph’s motto, VIRIBUS UNITIS (with united forces)]
