11907 Photo Identification

5/19/2008 Changed dates. please help !
The player who stands above the golkeeper is my dad.
I think that the picture has been taken in GERMANY (as mentioned above(after the war (1945-1948), but may also be in LITHUANIA (KAUNAS or PONEVEZYS) in 1933-1940.
Do anybody recognize any of the other players or thier children?
were there in the places mentioned above an 'HAKKOACH' football association?
Any idea when was the picture taken & where?
thanks,
natan.
