Men of the Maccabi sports club in Prievidza

This is a photograph of the members of the Maccabi sports club in Prievidza. The photo was taken by Adolf Kramer or Dezider Braun in the 1930s. The Prievidza Maccabi had about 20 - 25 members. They were focused mainly on physical education. Boys and girls used to attend separately. The Maccabi had some space at the Jewish elementary school. There was a yard there, as well as a volleyball court, and a horizontal bar. We didn't have our own gym, we used to rent space at the Prievidza high school. We used to practice twice or three times a week, always in the evening. The team probably didn't achieve any larger sports success, just the men participated in the Maccabiade in Zilina, sometime in the 1930s.
