>> Most pictures are of course from before WW!, some during the interwar

>> On No 22 the text reads "Templu(l) evreesc din Cernauti" meaning Jewish
>> temple of Cernowitz. It is obviously a caricature and free drawing of the
>> market place
>> that borderded the Theaterplatz (Vasile Alexandri) up to the
>> Universitaetsgasse corner Tempelgasse with the Temple shown as
>> background. The singular not
>> articulated form of Templu, a Temple instead "the Temple" seams to
>> indicate that the author just took the Temple (there was only one in
>> Czernowitz but an
>> uninformed spectator might not know that) as an example for "real" Jewish
>> culture as reflected by the 3 Jews in the forefront. Observe that all the
