moderated Do you know of descendants of this family #lithuania #yiddish #translation

Previously I posted a photo card with a family picture on the front and a Yiddish inscription on the back.  Thanks to the jewishgen community I received a translation identifying the family and further identifying the stamp on the card as coming from a DP in Germany.  The card came from the collection of the late Miriam Magilner born Meri-Leje Sapockaite in Merkine Lithuania and was from a cousin Luba Shapira husband Lazar and child born Boris, but now called Bern'le.  Then I recalled there was a letter in Miriam's artifacts from Luba Shapiro (born Merikanski) with a Haifa return address.  Bern'le would be 74 today.  So on the outside chance that descendants or relatives of Luba and Lazar Shapiro can be found I have posted the envelope with the Shapiro's return address in Haifa and the letter which I assume is in Yiddish.

the envelope with address in English can be seen at

the letter in Yiddish (rather long)  can be seen at

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page and if relatives can be found let them know.
Thank you very much.
