Czernowitzer were very conceited -" Eingebildet".
 All the surrounding people were inferior and got derogatory nicknames:
   The Russians were :"Fonie Ganew "- Fonie for Iwan.
    The Polish were : " Polske dribke " -What is a Dribke ?
      The Turks were : " Gelemter Terk " Gelemt means Lame .
        And many more I cannot recall.
          Can you ?
