There is a Brandes family that comes up in the book Perfect Spy -
members of the Brandes family were friends of the spy the book is about.

Subject: [Cz-L] Brandes family?

I am searching for possible family of Mina BRANDES, daughter of Jossel
Brandes and his wife Meniche (possibly I am spelling this incorrectly).
Mina married my uncle Leon Falikman. Leon was born in 1888, and a date
I have for Mina is 1897, which might have been her date of birth. Leon
was born in Czernowitz, and they most likely married and lived there
according to records I have. 
Moshe Brandes wrote two years ago that he and his father were both born
in Czernowitz, left from 1935 until 1940 to live in Bucharest, and then
returned to Czernowitz after Russian annexation -- leaving again in
1945 for Israel where they remain. But unfortunately he did not mention
a connection with Mina or her father Jossel Brandes, so I presume he
does not know of one. 
I would appreciate any further information re: BRANDES families, as
this may turn out to be the only potential still-living connection with
my father (Misha Falikman) and his family. 
thank you. -- Jessica Falikman Attiyeh, San Diego, CA
