23816 Photo Identification

7/29/2012 4:09 PM I am trying to see if anyone recognizes this photo. We've been told that it's a photo from the Romanian Shtetl that my mother's side was from, and know some of the people in the photo are relatives. We've been able to read that it's Jewish Romanian imigrants, but can't decipher the rest of the writing. I'd like to know if anyone knows anymore about this photo, or can translate the written information for me. Any help would be appreciated! View the post with its 3 responses

7/29/2012 4:08 PM Adelheid, Max and son Charles Rutner died in Holocaust. Unfortunately, I can find no record of them at Yad Vashem, etc. Perhaps, the words on this photo might help. I would like a kind soul to translate the few words in German.

Thank you,

23707 Translation - German

7/29/2012 4:07 PM This is a continuation of the message sent by Jacob Isak Sicherman to Matylda Sicherman. He refers to the Boyaner Rebbe--Rabbi Yitzchok Friedman (1850–1917), known as the Pachad Yitzchok (Dread of Isaac), who when Boyan was invaded in World War I escaped to Vienna (Wikipedia), where he died. On 16 Mar. he again wrote to her about the Boyaner Rebbe.

7/29/2012 4:07 PM Sent to Matylda Sicherman in Borysław by Jacob Isak Sicherman, stationed in the army in Cracow (his return address); it is postmarked Salzburg, and the picture is labeled “Hohens azburg von der Richterhöhe.” He refers to Wattens, a town in the North Tirol 13 km. from Innsbruck. This may be related to another card sent on the same day from Salzburg.

7/25/2012 5:09 PM This is the fourth of four postcards I am posting on Viewmate. It is a New Year's card addressed to someone in the Ackmeyster (Hackmeister) family in Radziwillow (my grandfather's family), apparently from someone else in Radziwillow. Would appreciate a translation of both the address (Russian) and the text (Yiddish).
