This is my younger sister Ziuka (Estera). It was dedicated to some Fule, but I don’t know who he was. The photo also has a date: 5th February 1934.

Ziuka was properly Edzia, in Yiddish Estera, she was my younger sister. During the war she was in Fergana, Soviet Union.

After the war she lived in Israel until she died, at 85, 3 or 4 years ago. She was the only one of the four sisters to survive, because the others died at the hands of the Germans.

Ziuka's husband is Chaskiel Majtek, who lives in Israel, in Holon; he calls me up sometimes.
