help with translation #bessarabia #yiddish


I'm looking for relatives from Calarash.
These are backsides of some photos, probably my grandfather's sister.
Since I don't have names I need any info that can be obtained here.


Dr.Josef ASH

I don't see in these cards any connection to Calarash
1 (black): It is a "poem" in Russian.( she was not Pushkin, so I'll write without rhymes...)
for a long memory to dear mother from her youngest daughter Raja. If we shall never meet, let my picture be with you.

If after years I'll be forgotten by you, let the picture will leave the track of what we passed together.

In Russian:

На долгую память дорогой мамочке от младшей дочери Раи.
Если встретиться нам не придется,
Если наша судьба такова,
Пусть на память тебе остается
Неподвижная личность моя.
Станция Исеть, 12 мая 1952 г.
На вечную долгую память брату и снохе от сестры Раи.
Пройдут быть может сколько лет
И вами буду забыта
Пусть карточки оставит след
Что вместе было пережито.

In English:

For a long memory, dear mother from the youngest daughter Raya.
If we don’t have to meet,
If our fate is this
Let you remember
My still person.
Iset Station, May 12, 1952
To the eternal long memory of his brother and daughter-in-law from Sister Raya.
Maybe how many years will pass
And you will be forgotten
Let the cards leave a mark
What was experienced together.
