As far as we know, the Czernowitz Directory for the year 1936 is the latest edition before WW2. It is essential for illustrating the pre-war professional, economical, cultural and social situation of our (Jewish) ancestors. In continuation of our in-depth analysis, we are publishing today "Czernowitz Directory 1936 In-Depth - Part 4: Telephone Directory":
Despite the fact, that the Romanian editors were responsible for a huge number of misspellings and/or inaccuracies, this database is most profitable. Among more than 1,100 datasets (!) you'll discover from

Phone No. 1: Dr. Nathan Getzler, dermatologist, Holocaust survivor (see posting), Czernowitz - Montreal, to

Phone No. 1200: Dr. Otto Fokschaner, son of the philanthropist and parliamentarian Dr. Max Fokschaner, lawyer (see posting), Czernowitz - London, or from

A: Josef Abeles, spice trader in Czernowitz, to

Z: Maximilian Zwilling, famous Zionist and father of Matthias Zwilling

many acquaintances, who were able to afford a telephone connection and - who knows - your ancestors too.
At the top of the above mentioned post you'll find links to the
- PDF versions (sorted both by subscriber and by number) of the 1936 telephone directory,
- EXCEL versions (sorted both by subscriber and by number) of the 1936 telephone directory,
- PDF version (sorted by subscriber) of 1936 original telephone directory.
Enjoy the publication and "stay tuned" for Part 5: Interior Ministry Directory 1936!
