Przemysler's Ball - Update

Update to a post from last February. Back then, I couldn't remember who sent me the photo. This email came in today:
I sent you the Przemysler's Ball photo. The man in the back left is my great-grandfather Joseph Kalter. I am guessing that the abbreviation in the caption stands for "Young Men's and Young Ladies' Przemysl Association." I do not know the reason for the ball, but note that the date in the caption, 16 Dec 1911, was the first day of Chanukah that year. -- Logan K

Yoachim in 1930

These heartbreaking photos just came in from Yoram in Israel.

It is just recently that I have managed to identify the identity the child in the attached picture, maybe it will be of interest for you. This is a picture of Yohachim Kammerman taken in ~1930 in Przemysl. Yoachim perished with "Ada" his mother, in Belzec camp in 1942.

His father "Abele" (below) survived the camps and lived the rest of his life alone in Sweden.

Never Again.

UPDATE: Lukasz B. writes: I'm not 100 percent sure, but it is most probably corner of Franciszkanska and Serbanska St., by the house where Herman Liberman lived (not in the background, to the right).
