Translation Requested: Yiddish #poland


Genealogy BLW
 

I've posted a greeting in Yiddish >from the back of the photo
for which I need a translation. It is on ViewMate at the following
address:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM37118

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Ite Doktorski translated the Yiddish before I was able to post this
request. Thank you, Ite!

Here is some context for the photograph which is unfortunately unsigned
by the sender. My grandmother's brothers, Chil Jukiel and Israel
KAC/KATZ, emigrated >from Poland in 1933 along with Chil's
brother-in-law. All 3 men were married. Two of them were able to get
their wives and children out of Europe to join them in South America.
For some reason, unknown to all descendants, Chil's wife and
daughter did not or could not leave and were Shoah victims.

The KATZ brothers were >from Ostrowiec, Poland. Chil's wife,
Idesa KATZ (nee ZALCMAN) was >from Iwanska/Iwaniska. Israel's
wife, Rivka KATZ (nee CELNIK) was purportedly >from Krakow, although her
granddaughter recently corrected her hometown to also be Ostrowiec.

I believe that I've identified all of my grandmother's
siblings and they had all emigrated by December 1937.

Because the writer addresses the recipients as brothers-in-law
and sister-in-law, I at first thought it was one of grandma's siblings
who were already gone by the time this photo was taken and sent!
With the new information that Rivke was >from Ostrowiec, I now
believe the sender, and by extension, the family in the
photograph, are the family of one of her siblings.

I have no information that Rivke had siblings. I definitely do not know
their names, dates of birth, and fates. How do I proceed?

I appreciate any insight that you can provide.

Thank you very much.
