I understand that Kretschme is a Yiddish word for inn or tavern. Corresponding word in Czech is Krcma, in Polish Karczma, etc. This root occurs also in other Slavic and non-Slavic languages, including Estonian, Hungarian, Albanian, Rumanian and Romani. See online krecme yiddish in Explorations in Judeo-Slavic Linguistics, by Paul Wexler (page 165).
