    The lady nearby Dr.Ornstein is Dr.Rosa Sammet-Zaluziecky, the famous gynecologue in Czernowitz, after 1940 in Bukarest, there she was also my physician Her husband Dr.Zaluziecky was a famous heard physician, Ukrainian, against Soviets. After his death in Bukarest, Dr.Samet/Zaluziezky emigrated with her son to Israel..

    Dr. Rosa Samet was a gynecologist and obstetrician and assisted at my birth. I have a better photograph of her, in which she is much better looking. Her husband, Dr. Alexis Vladimir Zaloziecki, was in the nineteen thirties considered the best physician in town. He was also the head of the Ruthenian political party and known as a witty humorist.

    Yes, I also knew Dr. Samet,in Bukarest, my parents were friends with them, she was called Rosalka and was a warm, very cultivated person. Her husband was a “hochmendicker”, and as soon as we entered the house, he would say something funny and very to the point. He was something of an eccentric,especially with his patients, but they thought the more of him because of that. I believe that Aki, their son, still lives in Israel, he is a physicist if I remember well.

    Mimi is wrong, there were 2 brothers Dr.Zaloziecki, one was the famous cardiolog, the other was an art critic, art collector, who left his huge private art library in his home, very old books from 1557, the first printed books. I worked at that time in the public Czernowitz Library, 1940/1941, the soviets collected all the books from the left apartment, from the refugee to Romania, you can not imagine what a treasure it was…Alfred Kittner and A. Maurueber, the uncle of Emanuel Weissglass, were the manager, and we had an Ukrainian Director Dutko…Weissglass, Silbermann, the later husband of Edith Horowitz, and many others were working there also Ditzi Schwarz, the sister of the famous brothers Schwarz, the sculptor,the artist, and I.Kara, the university professor and author in Jashi, Romania…

    Mimi says:
    From my parents I heard a lot about Dr. Med. Zaloziecki and his wife Dr. med. Rosa Samet. They did not mention Dr. Zaloziecki’s first name. But looking at the 1936 address book, I found: Zaloziecki Alexis Vlad, Dr. Medic, living on strada Romana. Zalozietcki Rosalia (Samet) Dr. Medica on strada Romana. Zalozietcki Vladimir Dr. Jurist on strada Iancu Flondor. This confirms that Dr. Samet was married to Dr Med..Alexis Vlad. Zaloziecki. Zvi Javetz in his book Erinnerungen an Czernowitz, writes that in 1918 the leader of the Ruthenian party was Dr. Volodymyr Zaloziecki, Look page 15 and page 23. All I can say is that because he writes: “Dr. Zaloziecki” I assume he means a medical Dr. and not a Jurist. I know nothing about an art critic by the name of Zaloziecki.

    I strongly believe Hedwig is right; we are talking about two brothers:

    • Dr. Alexis Vlad Zaloziecki (Rosa Samet’s husband)
    • Dr. Wladimir Zaloziecki (Member of the Parliament and Head of the Ukrainian National Party)

    Introducing “Zaloziecki” into the search engine of the archives for “Der Tag” at

    we get 14 matches out of which 4 are related to Dr. Alexis Vlad Zaloziecki and the other 10 to Dr. Wladimir Zaloziecki.
