Personal Notices and Announcements

Feb. 20, 2009

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.

2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments.

3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 

posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Dear Mendelyaner,

Perhaps you can help me identfy the people in the famous bild of the participants at the Czernowitz Conference, 1908. You can find the photo if you go to Google Images and you type in "czernowitz language conference" or if you do an advanced search at images and under "exact phrase" you type in "czernowitz conference.

I've already identified some.

Sitting from right to left, Peretz, Helena Peretz (his wife), Avrom Zinger (holding the banner) Rosz Birnboym (sife of N.B,), Nosn Birnboym

Standing in the 2nd row, at the very right in the light suit Khayem Zhitlovski, (I think), H.D. NOmberg, the 4th in that row , the short guy behind and between Mrs. Peretz and Zinger (I think), right next to him Avrom Reyzn, at the veryleft  of that row Sholem Asch. 

Please let me know if you know who any of the others are or if you think that I haven't identified someone correctly. Wouldn't it be amazing if together we identified everyone in the photo! Thanks, Sheva Zucker
