Belarus SIG #Belarus Photo of young men in Brooklyn about 1921-1924 #belarus

Jenny Schwartzberg

Dear Genners,

This photo shows a group of young men in their early 20s, probably
taken in Brooklyn, NY, during the period 1921-1924. One of them has been
identified as my cousin Joseph Kaplan, born in Antopol, Kobrin uzed, Grodno
gubernia, Belarus in 1902. He immigrated to Brooklyn, NY in 1921, where he
had a laundry business. Another young man in the photo is supposedly his
brother-in-law Benjamin Wolinetz, also >from Antopol, so this may be a
gathering of young Antopolers.
What I am hoping is that people will be able to identify other
faces in the photo, which is very clear. Please email me with any
names. The photo is at:
Steve Morse is kindly temporarily housing it for me.

Yours cordially,
Jenny Schwartzberg
