- Feb 9, 2012Dear Sonja.When I received this e mail I didn't look at it properly. My son Allen Dryer pointed out that one of the members missing in the photo was J. Pogroske - Jack was my first cousin. Also there was a Mr Rochin - he was a witness at my parents' wedding in Keidan in 1930!! What a small world. He also told me the Rabbi who officiated at the wedding was murdered on the 28th Aug. 1941. My bobba and zeida died before the Holocaust I will speak to my sister in JHB and she remembers more than I do. Unfortunately she does not have emaiMy late mother was born in Keidan and her name was Anna Levitan. Her family had a bakery and she worked there' Her brother came to SA in 1928. Her one sister also died in the Holocaust- she was Jack Pogroske's mother.I remember you,r family when they lived in Doornfontein in SolSonia Lodge. in Charlton Terrace in the early 1950's.. If I am correct your sister's name was Sylvia and your mom's name was Kitty?? and she worked at Crystals. I remember your dad coming to see my mom - we lived in Sivewright Ave.I remember the names in the picture .My name is Micki Dryer (nee Cohen) . I live in England now. I don't know if you remember me.This is just a shor email - trying remember more. I will speak to my sister.RegardsMickiHi everyone,I was going through my stuff that I brought with when making Aliyah and have come across this photograph which I thought might interest some of you.My father is J Setting, perhaps some of you might recognize someone you know, please let me know if you do, I would be most interested.You might have to rotate that photo as it is quite large and I couldn't scan it right side up.RegardsSonja Shacknofskye-mail address: stephen.shacknofsky@...
