From Zlila Ebner- Helman:
I have send a copy of a part of the archive of my Grandfather Dr. Mayer Ebner and my Father Dr. Josef Ebner to the museum of Czernowitz (attached example[s]). a lot of Documents & old Photos & Articles etc… between 1899 – 1940 – besides those of 1940-1955.
The document [below] was an urgent request of M. Ebner to Nahum Goldman and Stefan Whise to save the deported people to SIBERIA
More examples from Archive of M.Ebner

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.

To Czernowitz-List Members
I am looking for members of the Switkes Family who were born or who lived in Czernowitz prior to World War II. The Switkes family was possibly related to the Tartakower family, also of Czernowitz.
Elias Switkes married Emilia Katz, a member of my family.
They were, perhaps, in Lviv and then moved from Lviv to Leipzig. Elias and Emilia were then deported from Leipzig and murdered.
Their children and / or grandchildren may have survived.
I have attached a photograph of a boy taken in the early 1900s.
I believe he may have been the son of Elias and Emilia.
Please contact me if you know anything about this family.
Can anyone identify the uniform, rank, country, and time period? This question is from Karen Silver.
