This is a letter from the leadership of the Orthodox Community of Papa. They sent it to my grandmother Regina when my grandfather Adolf Paneth died. It says that the community greatly appreciated his activity as a teacher of religion in the community school for forty years. Regina had serious financial problems after her husband died in 1928, but she was helped by her late husband's uncles who had emigrated to America in the 1870s. They regularly sent her money, for which she was especially thankful since the Jewish community of Papa was in such a bad shape that often it couldn't pay her the widow's allowance on time.
