Yearbook Photos from Czernowitz

Assaf Patir from Jerusalem wrote: “I found some yearbook photos of my grandmother from Czernowitz. She was born Selma Lepkowicz (later Polisher) on 30/4/1922, and the photos are from 1928, 1929 and 1931, when she was in the 1st, 2nd and 4th grade respectively. I thought that if you could put them on ephes, maybe some members of the list could identify relatives.”

Semi-monthly journal of the Cernautian school of painting

This came from List Member Daniel Dubowy… It is a pdf of something his father did in 1924 in Czernowitz when he was 16 years old.

Daniel explains:

Hi Jerome,

My German is not very good either, I used Google Translate for the
title: semi-monthly journal of the Cernautian school of painting. In
1924 my father was 16 years old, I don’t know if such a school really
existed but I suspect this was a fictitious name for a group of students
with artisitic talents in the school who wrote this journal by hand. My
father *Erich Dubowy has a few drawings inside.

I take no responsibility for the content as my German is worse than Daniel’s. Your comments then are necessary and welcome .
