On a gravestone in the old Kaunus Jewish cemetery in Lithuania, I found
an inscription with the following name information for the woman buried
there: In Roman characters: Zahnarztin OGUS (The second "a" in the
word "Zahnarztin" has an umlaut over the letter.)
My question is whether the word "Zahnrztin" is really the given name of
the deceased woman, or does the word have some other meaning?
"Zahnaerztin" is the German word for "dentist". "Zahnarzt" is a male
dentist, "Zahnaerztin" a female dentist,
with best regards
