In answer to Marianne and others who have asked me to send them
or the list, the Email address of Natalya Shevchenko:

I do not think I have the right to divulge her Email address,
unless I get her permission to do so.

So that there is no misunderstanding of what I wrote to Mrs. Shevchenko,
Here is a copy of my original letter to her:

I have previously sent the list Mrs. Shevchenko's answer.

Here is what I then wrote her in reply:

> I have written to the Czernowitz List and told the members

I do not speak or write Russian, she does not speak nor write English.
I had to have my letters to her and hers to me translated.
Therefore I cannot maintain a frequent correspondence with her.

But I will write her, that only some people may object to the use
of the photographs on the "ehpes" website for the proposed album and also
ask her whether I have her permission to divulge her Email address to
members of the Cz.-List.

Shabbat Shalom,
