27216 Do you recognize?

5/5/2013 4:45 PM This is a photo of my grandmother Domicela Pokorny. Born on the 23rd of July 1919 in Wieliczka, Poland (near Krakow). She moved to the Netherlands after 1944. I have been trying to find information about her and her family for the last two years.

All I discovered was that she was Jewish and never married my grandfather. Her brother was killed at the conservatory in Krakow at the start of WW II, and the family was wealthy. She was also called "Rosa" and had a cousin who lived in Antwerpen after 1945. She never learned Dutch and only spoke hebrew and polish.

She died in Amsterdam, 16 April 1969 leaving behind her partner Teunis Kraaijenbrink and her two sons:

Ingnax Ramon Hendrik, born 13 February 1947
Alexander Robert Donald, born 25 February 1949

If you can help me with information concerning the Pokorny family from Wieliczka in any way, I would be very grateful!

27210 Photo Identification

5/5/2013 4:44 PM My great-uncle Max LOEWENSTEIN was a booking agent and theatre manager in New York in the 1910s and 1920s. He died in 1930 at the age of 50. Here he is in front of a building, presumably where he worked.

What street is the building on? It's probably on a numbered street just off of 5th Avenue, given the building number 5.
