Translation Request - Russian #ukraine

mas850@...
 

I've posted inscriptions on the back of two postcards, presumably from
Kremenchug, Ukraine, for which I need a translation. It is on ViewMate at
the following addresses ...

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38774

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM38775

These postcards appear to have been sent to my wife's grandmother by her
friends. She arrived in America as a 19 year old girl in 1914. It's not
clear if these were written to her after she arrived, or before she left.
Any help in dating and locating where these photos were taken, in addition
to the translation, would be appreciated.

Freiwillig miltardienst - voluntary military certificate #germany

Judith Diamond
 

I have my father's 'Zeugnis der Unbescholtenheit' >from Mommsen Gymnasium
in Berlin signed in 1912 when he was 13 years old. It relates to
'einjaehrig freiwillig Militaerdienst' - voluntary military service. And
I have found such occurred in both German and Austro-Hungarian armies.
I know that my father served as a medical orderly for 4 months in 1918
[aged 19] in the Austro-Hungarian army - his father had been born in
Kolomea, though he was born in Berlin.

Can anyone throw more light on the certificate, and his war service?

A Mother's Diary by Sosia Gottesfeld Zimmerman #general

Tony Hausner
 

This diary written more than seventy years ago describes how a Jewish family --
living in Skala, a Ukrainian shtetl, survived the Holocaust >from 1941 through 1944.

After the Germans occupied Skala in 1941, the Jewish community faced constant
harassment and degradation, sadistic brutality, and killings. The "final solution"
began there when the Germans conducted their first "action" in September 1942.
Sosia and her family hid with various farmers for several months and one in
particular for over 14 months. Her diary vividly describes the terrible plight of
the Jews in Ukraine and of her family specifically. They faced continuous demands
that they leave. Every time they pleaded to stay a little longer. Every day brought
fears of being found out by neighbors, the Ukrainian militia, German patrols. Every
day brought depravation, hunger, cold. All around them, the few remaining Jews
were being caught and murdered. Somehow, they managed to hang on for eight months
until being liberated by the advancing Russian army in March 1944.
The hand-written diary in Yiddish is now preserved in the Yad Vashem Archives in
Jerusalem.

The book is available >from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.

Skala is the town where my mother's family is from. Skala was part of Galicia
prior to World War I.
