Looking for Sniatyn

Junior high school (gymnasium) teachers, 1925. The tall man in the middle, front row, is the head of the school, priest Michał Borowy. To his right: Janina Rozenhekówna, Polish and Latin teacher, a girl scout team supervisor; priest of the Armenian Catholic Church, Kajetan Amirowicz; Mojżesz [Moses] Sandek, Jewish religious teacher. Greek-Catholic priest, Josef Prots, an activist of the Ukrainian national movement is on the front row first right. To his left (unseen) might be Aron Liegman, Latin and German teacher.

  1. Thanks for posting this! This looks like a wonderful project. I have a telegraph that was almost definitely sent by Moses Sandek from Sniatyn in 1927. Message me privately and I would be happy to share more information and the document.

  2. Hello, many thanks for your comment. I would be glad to learn more about this telegraph, sounds very interesting. How can I contact you? All best, Olga

  3. Which one is Mojzesz (Moses) Sandek? He is my great grandfather...
