My name is Leah Rosenberg and I live in Israel. I am the daughter of Luba (Nissenbaum) Rosenberg and Jonah Rosenberg. My grandfather David Nissenbaum owned one of the textile factories in Czernowitz before confiscation by the Nazis. I do not know the name, but so I was told by my mother. My mother’s sister, Sala Weinblum and my uncle Shlomo Weinblum was a partner of the original ownership of Trinaco before the war. My family in Czernowitz survived due to employment and their managerial positions in the factory/factories. The other members of my family were Pola and Yosef Lehr, Jacob and Regina and their young child Yitzchak. Sala and Shlomo Weinblum also had a young child Ami who now resides in the US by the name of Abraham Enav and is a member of your Blog.
I am searching for more information to piece together an accurate account of my family’s life during the holocaust and also to share it with the archives at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem.
Can anyone identify the uniform, rank, country, and time period? This question is from Karen Silver.

Attached is a photograph of me near Marie’s gravestone.”
