I've posted the image of the back of a photograph, probably taken in 1942 in the town of Kuty.
Please translate the Yiddish into English. Thanks.

Mark,

Wow! Unlike most Yiddish scripts that I have seen , this one is written in a script that I am familiar with and I can make out most of the words . I will do this later but the gist of it is : 

Whenever you look at the this photograph , remember the all the hard times we have suffered under the Germans and remember us - the former Rapport family . 

It must be one of the last letters anyone was able to send out from a ghetto (?) or smuggled out some other way before most of them were killed . Does that seem likely ?
