Request for Old Photos from Jaroslaw #usa
Do you have any old photos taken of or by your relatives in Jaroslaw, Galicia/Poland? They are needed for the upcoming English edition of the Yizkor Book of Jaroslaw.
It is difficult to find good 1880-1940 photos online, and JewishGen cannot afford to license them from Getty Images, Alamy, USHMM, etc.
I am a volunteer graphic designer working with JewishGen. I am looking for photos that show:
1. The Jewish part of town, with Jewish buildings such as synagogues, study houses, the marketplace, shops, houses, schools, etc.
2. Groups of people, such as a class, Zionist group, professional group, or people at work or play.
3. Family groups (between 4 and 20 people).
4. Modern photos of the old Jewish area, if some old structures remain, such as synagogues, cemetery headstones, houses or other Jewish buildings. Or a panorama or aerial view of the town.
Although I cannot offer payment, for any pictures contributed, you will receive a prominent photo credit plus a free copy of the printed Yizkor book.
If you have old photos, please write to me at artstop@... for instructions on how to scan and send them.
Many thanks for your kind help!
I have 2 types (sets) of pictures of the old city of Jaroslaw. All of them are jpg files.
The 1st set are about 23 pictures (jpg) downloaded from the internet in 2005.
Don't remember the source. They are all pictures of early buildings in Jarowslaw.
The 2nd set are about 50 jpg pictures made during our family roots trip in October, 2008.
So for these I can give you permission to use.
The pictures include such items as:
the moat before entering the old city
House 8 Grotska Street where the families Steinberg and Raab had lived
The original market; now a museum
The former Reform synagogue
If you are interested in any of the jpg pictures, please send me an
email to: erobotnick@gmail,com
with instructions on how to send them to you.
Regards and Hag Sameach,
