18690 Tombstone

4/13/2011 4:04 PM The grave of Aron (Arkady) Tuzman (Touzman).

Aron Tuzman was a WWII vet and served as a prototype for a protagonist of a popular Soviet war movie.

There is a story about Aron Tuzman (in Russian language) here: http://www.proza.ru/2009/05/26/496

4/13/2011 4:03 PM This is the back side of a photograph. There is an annotation in Russian hand-writing. I would like a translation to English, especially the name of the writer.

The name of the photographer is also printed, and some information about him (name, address, etc) would be appreciated.

18682 Tombstone

4/13/2011 4:03 PM Is there any mention of a father's name in the inscription? I know his Hebrew or original name is Menachem Mendel, like the Rebbe. Does this mean anything for a Lithuanian Jewish man? Or is it just a common name for his time (b. mid 1800s). Thanks so much for translations and interpretations! View the post with its 2 responses

18667 Tombstone

4/13/2011 4:01 PM I would greatly appreciate help translating the inscription on this gravestone for Sohloime Sperling. It appears to me that it states he was the son of Chaim Yaakov. Having a tough time figuring out everything else (my hebrew is poor). Thank you! View the post with its 2 responses
18668 Translation - German

4/13/2011 4:01 PM UPDATE: apparently this was written in German- thank you in advance for help translating.

This was written on the back of a photo showing the family at the grave of Sohloime Sperling. I believe that the note is written in Polish. Thank you in advance for help translating this.
