  Steinberg street is the old Heinegasse and is on the Ehpes.
  Popovici street is named after Omelian Popovici -Ukrainean president of
Bukovina 1918.
  Many of the plates and statues have been put up by outside Czernowitz
   assisted by the city - you know how .
  Sholem Aleichem street was given to the Judengasse in order not to have a
   belonging to the Jews. It was Judengasse and not Judischegasse.
     This was done by the Soviets but left unchanged - many others were
    Even the Antonescu regime did not change this name. Strada Evreiasca.
