You can also crop the photo to create separate image file for each face and run it through Google.

Since one of the two photos is identified as originating in Horodishche, I would study all sources from that area. It is possible that this group is from Horodishche or environs but without solid evidence my guess is as good as yours.

Here is what else I see in the photo. The boy’s cap is of the fashion common in Poland, not in Soviet-controlled areas, or in Lithuania for example; the boy and the girl are likely brother and sister, and he is a domineering little guniff; the man in glasses resembles Soviet journalist Mikhail Koltsov (born Frildlyand I think); it is logical to assume that he is standing next to his fife which makes the children theirs; the man on the right assumed an independent pose, he is probably a bachelor, maybe a younger brother of the man in glasses; the older couple in the middle are obviously the parents of the family. Lastly, they were not poor, by local standards.

Good luck in your search.
