Lyceum Mihai Eminescu

From Gaby Rinzler:

In the center is Professor Goraj,director and co-owner of the private lyceum Mihai Eminescu.


It looks like a graduating class (because of the glasses in their hands)
It is probably 1939-40. I can’t remember how I got in this picture. I am the obviouly younger kid with the open mouth. Many of the boys look very familiar to me but I cannot afix names to them. The big head on the right lower corner may be a cousine of mine Arno Rosenwald..

[I wish to see] if any body recognizes somebody?

Corinne is trying to find anyone who knew her father, Hermann Schimmer, from Czernowitz.

The first photo, front and back were taken in Gimmaziul Mirou Costiu (?) in 1936/37. Corinne says: ” My dad wrote the names on the back: he is in the third row [5th from the left]“.

The second photo is of Class 1935 My dad is second from the right in the front row:

The last photo is of my grandmother born Eva Hilsenrathe. It would be great if anyone could remember a name or anything!
