Sara Schmidt mother of Joseph

From Oren Saraf:

At the cemetery of Gura Humora, we found the grave of Sara Schmidt, the mother of Joseph Schmidt.

My grandfather , Dr. Scharfstein, was born in Gura Humora, and After becoming an ENT doctor, he lived in Czernowitz. (I am sure that the tonsils of some of our CZ-L members were removed by him in the ‘30’s.)

My ant remember that around ’36 or ’37, Joseph Schmidt came from Vienna to see Dr. Scharfstein for some problem he had in his throat. After the treatment they had privet recital at home.
