Hi All,
   Just found out that Czernowitz has a Popovici street after all.
  And a nice street it is too.
    The old Splenygasse from the Franz-Joseph Park to the
  "Herz Jesu" Jesuit Church. The one with the green tall spire.
    Then I look again and find that the name is O. Popovici.
     Not our man.
       Who was O.Popovici ? No idea.
        What were his merits to name the Splenygasse after him ?
       He must have done something, written some book , or was he
      a national hero , or an olympic champion ?
        Jews he did not save ,for sure, for this they don't name streets
       in Czernowitz.
         For saving jews ,you get a memorial plate.
          This too doesn't come easy.
            You must pull some strings.
            Then, we don't have an agreed text.
              Czernowitzers !- a word here ,a word there -
               let us agree and go ahead.
                 It is almost 67 years since...
                   Popovici waited enough.
