SECTION FOUR: IDEOLOGICAL CURRENTS (H, Y)
|Zionist Youth in Yedinitz in 1904|
This is the oldest photograph we have from Yedinitz. This is the oldest Zionist photo, and it is possible that it is the first photo of activists and community leaders in Yedinitz. At the bottom of the photo you can read the address in Russian as follows:[Pages 475-476]
[Russian:] The Committee of the Zionist Youth Group in the City of Yedinitz, 8/30/1904.
Behind the photo in Russian are the words: In eternal memory of the unforgettable founder of the movement in Yedinitz, the extraordinary aristocrat, Dr. Wisotzky, from the members of the Committee of the Zionist Youth Group: Yosef Steinick, Shlomo Rosenberg, Leibush Ludmir and Leibish Gelman.
We obtained the photo from Aryeh Tsentsifer-Rafaeli, Director of the Russian Zionist Archive in Tel Aviv. After some research we were able to identify the people in the photo:
1. Leibush Ludmir, son of Shmuel, left Yedinitz after marrying a woman from Hutin. He served for some time as the mayor of Hutin, and perished in 1941 in Transdenistra.
2. Leibush Gelman, married Gusta Feingold of Yedinitz in 1919. She was a pharmacist. They left Yedinitz and lived for a period in Hutin and later in Chernovitz. During the war they lived in Soviet central Asia. They returned to Chernovitz in 1946 and then emigrated to Brazil. In 1953 they emigrated to Israel, where Leibush died in 1957 at the age of 72. His wife Gusta died in February 1972 in Tel Aviv.
3. Meir Blank(?).
4. Dr. Wisotzky, a doctor in town.
5. Chalaf, who later was an accountant at the Ezra Bank, and the husband of the famous Midwife. He died in the 1920s.
6. Chalaf's son.
7. Probably Shlomo Rosenberg.
8. Yosef Steinick, who was later the pharmacist in Lipkan; he was later seen in Chernovitz.
No further information is available. Mrs. Chanatse Ludmir-Fishman, sister of Leibush Ludmir, says that a large copy of the photo hung in her parents' home in Yedinitz.
