Polish-Jewish occupations #poland

Rivka Schirman <capitetes@...>

The occupations of immediate interest are:

krawiec - TAILOR; SEWER

piecznik - couldn't find anything
nauczciel - teacher
handlarz - SHOPKEEPER; TRADESMAN; HUCKSTER, trafficker
subiekt - salesman
kramarz - huckster
sluzba - service
farbiarz - - couldn't find anything
and kucharka - - couldn't find anything

Hope this helps a bit just the same.
BTW, there are several online English-Polish and Polish English
dictonaries, on top of google translate, for short line or simple
terms they are quite useful ...

Best regards

I am asking if anyone knows where to find a list of common occupations in
Polish translated into English free on the net? this should be a basic
