This is Avram Scheinfeld, the son of Paulina, my mother's sister, so my first cousin, at his bar mitzvah. The photo was taken in Iasi in 1945 or 1946. My mother, Clara, Jewish name Haia Hinda, was born in Iasi, in the house on Aron Voda Street, around 1902. She had three younger sisters. Paulina, my mother's second sister, was born in 1907 in Iasi. She was a housewife. Her husband's name was Strul; he was a hakham and did ritual slaughters, especially with poultry. They had a son, Avram, born in Iasi in 1932, who currently lives in Germany, and is a light industry engineer. He's married and has a son who's a surgeon. Paulina died in 1993 in Rehovot, Israel.
