27425 Do you recognize?

5/22/2013 5:15 PM The front of the postcard shows a family with 2 children - a boy and a girl. The back of the postcard says: Av de los incas 4598. Bs As. In Yiddish it reads "this is for my brother and sister Henoch and Brantsha Lantsberg."

We know that my husband's grandfather Henoch (Henry) Landsberg was the only one of his siblings to come to NYC - the rest went to Argentina (they were all from Dubienka Poland originally). We don't know their names.

Gershon Henoch died in 1949, so this is probably from the 1940s although it could be earlier. Unfortunately Argentina doesn't have census records with family information from this time.

27426 Do you recognize?

5/22/2013 5:15 PM Does anyone recognize the locale of this photo? My parents immigrated to the US in 1940 and I'm guessing that this photo was taken sometime before they left Vienna in 1939. If the date of the photo is after 1940, I have no idea where the location would be...perhaps, New York or Norfolk, VA, where they settled after leaving NY in 1941. View the post with its 3 responses
27427 Translation - Russian

5/22/2013 5:15 PM this came from the Polish State Archives. I need to verify the town, and the names. I believe it is Russian because of the Cyrillic script. It is for Chana Gruber, my great aunt and her husband. I believe it has her father's name Leyzer at the bottom left. I would appreciate any help in deciphering this document. Many thanks in advance.

27332 Translation - Hebrew

5/22/2013 5:09 PM This is allegedly the 4th page of a remembrance of the life of my great grandfather Rabbi Shlomo Gadol, one of the early leaders of the Ashkenazi Perushim rabbinical movement in Lithuania and Jerusalem in the late 1800s and early 1900s striving to establish the foundations of Zionism in Palestine.

27347 Do you recognize?

5/22/2013 5:08 PM I have posted in ViewMate a (circa 1921) photograph of the Zagare Folk School.

I believe that my father Zvi (Hirsh/Girsh) SEGAL is in the top row, 10th from the left in the white outfit.

He left Zagare in 1929 for Australia where he joined his brother Aizyk and Uncle Henry Susman. He managed to get his mother Leah (nee Susman)and sister Malka out in 1935.


It would be wonderful to learn if someone can recognise a family member in this photograph of a community almost entirely wiped out in October 1941.

Warm regards,

Aron Segal
