The Ginzburg family was a wealthy Jewish family from Odessa. They had many
projects in Russia before WW1. One of their members was Asher Ginzburg -
"Ekhad Haam" an Intellectual famous about his writings on the Philosophic
aspect of the Zionism. My parents were befriended with another member of the
family - Dr. Ginzburg who owned a hospital in Novoselitsa.
