JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Help identify locality on postcard #general
I have placed a postcard on ViewMate
and would much appreciate help in identifying the locality on the photograph.
The card was sent by my maternal grandfather, David MIRMOVITSCH, during
WW I - probably in 1916 - to my grandmother, living in Helsinki
(Helsingfors), Finland.My gf had been conscripted to the Russian army in
Finland and was sent with his unit to somewhere in Eastern Europe, >from
where he sent this postcard.
For those of you who read Yiddish:
I have also scanned and posted the reverse side of the card
The text in Yiddish mentions some localities which I'm unable to
identify. Perhaps this might help, assuming there is a direct link btw
the places mentioned in the text and those on the photo.
I would much appreciate any help. Please answer privately to:
(formerly Helsinki, Finland)
