    On behalf of Irene Fishler:

    Thank you very much, Edgar and special thanks to Iosif for the photos, taken at the funeral on March, 30th, 1932.
    I am pretty sure that I recognized my father in the crowd at the cemetery. I wonder where the photographer was positioned, in a tree?
    The description of this unconventional funeral can be read in “Der Tag” number16, of March, 31th, 1932, (page2) at:

    I’m sure that my father attended also the unveiling ceremony in October 1933. He was one of the young people from the “Schulverein” who adored Steinbarg.
    The guests from Bucharest and speakers mentioned in the article were personal friends or acquaintances of my father, who was a Yiddishist, of course.
    Yakob ( Yankev) Sternberg was director at the “Vilnaer Truppe” at the time when my uncle , the actor Yehuda Ehrenkranz, joined the company (1923-25) .
