Information Question
Category: Interpretation
Family Surname: Vollman
Country: Romania
Town: Capresti
Date of Image: September 16, 1929
  This is Roza Peraile Vollman of Capresti, writing in German, to her uncle and aunt and cousins, who now live in America. Her uncle, Abram Spiwak (who was using his American name, William, at this point) visited Romania for three months in 1929, looking for members of his family who did not emigrate. His daughter Lil traveled with him. Another Genner saw my previous posting and wrote to ask if this woman migh be the same as the Roza Vollman who was her mother's cousin, and who wrote in 1948 explaining how she survived the war and evaded the Nazis. The back of this card follows, and then the other Roza's three page letter in German, which we need translated, word by word, to English in order to see if we have a connection.
