Teodor Pasternak and Maccabi members

Here you can see my father, Teodor Pasternak (first from left in the middle row), with young people with skis, equipped for tourism and even mountaineering in Ninco in January 1927. Ninco is a mountain region dividing the main European rivers between the Baltic and Black Sea. From the top of Ninco you can see the towns Circ, Orlov, Plavec and the river Poprad, flowing through Lubovna. On the other side there is the river Torysa flowing south to Kosice valley. The Maccabi association organized trips on the river Torysa, to the High Tatras and also abroad. My father used to plan the trips. Already in 1926 Maccabi had over 50 members interested in tourism. They were mostly men, but also about ten women.
