This is the image that goes with Jacquie’s recent post to the Czernowitz list.
Can anyone identify the uniform, rank, country, and time period? This question is from Karen Silver.
Jordan is seeking background information about this envelope:
From Frederick Kron, M.D.: “I have attached a photograph of my great aunt, Ana (Kron) Biener, and my cousin, Sidi Biener, who lives in Israel. Both were from Czernowitz. I shared this picture with Sidi, who remembers that it was taken at a spa near Czernowitz. She remembers especially the doll, which her mother bought for her at the spa.”
Shown here is a photo of Nurit Naeh at the Czernowitz Jewish Cemetery, May 2017. Nurit writes: “I succeeded to find the gravestone of my Grandfather’s (Carl Schafer) sister, Marie Schafer in the Jewish cemetery, and their house in Frazengasse 23 as well. Attached is a photograph of me near Marie’s gravestone.”
Several cemeteries in Israel include memorials to the holocaust often related to individual towns or regions of Europe. A number of years ago, I visited such a memorial to the Jewish community of Radautz, Bukovina.
Harry Bolner visited two other memorials in the Haifa Cemetery, shown here (Dorohoi-Radautz-Transnistria Memorial – photo supplied by Harry Bolner via Merle Kastner):
Nearby, one can also find a memorial to the Pogrom in Iasi:
Thank you to Harry Bolner for taking the two photos above and sharing them with us.
Merle Kastner has done extensive work documenting burials in the Jewish Cemeteries of Montreal. A memorial to the holocaust in Bukovina can be found there at the Baron de Hirsch Cemetery (photo courtesy of Merle Kastner):
