Information Question
Category: Do you recognize?
Family Surname: Finkelstein
Country: Ukraine
Town: Volyn Gubierna?
Date of Image: 1910s
  Thanks to 2 wonderful volunteers I have learned::
16 May 1927 (can’t tell whether this is the date of the graduation or the date the note was written on the back of the photo)
The school was at 17 Dworska street, Warsaw
The Photo Studio is named Świt, likely also in Warsaw
Having learned this, I was able to find a website on the School. It was connect to a Jewish hospital in Warsaw. The website has no original documents from the school and so I’m going to ask if they’d like to have a copy of the photo. How exciting!

Does anyone know how I might find out the name and location of the school? It seems unusual that Jews would be admitted to a nursing school in Ukraine/Poland/Russia.
Two of my great-aunts are in the photo, They were from Radziwilow. Their parents and siblings moved to the US (1 to Argentina). We assume the sisters perished in a pogrom. I want to find out what happened to them. Thank you for any help you can give.
