14830 Translation - Other

3/10/2010 These notes were written in the back of two picture of my Grandmother who was killed in the Holocaust. I asked Yiddish speaking people to translate this but they couldn’t as it is not entirely Yiddish, it is mixed with Czech. If someone can please translate, I would really appreciate it as it is the only connection that I have. Also, if you can make out the exact spelling of our last name?(not sure if it is Zelmanovic).
After speaking to my father he told me that the notes were from the photographer who took the pictures. Unfortunately, after so many years my father cannot translate the information. He had send them to my great-uncle (who was here before the war) to give to my father since he was the only survivor.
