When I went to Uni in Syney I had a Hungarian friend(Jewish) named Gabor
Zipser...who said the folk called Zipsers were Saxon Germans who settled in
the Carpathians,Hungary and the Slovak region....why his surname was Zipser
was because his ancestry was same area and Jews had to pick a name!!!

I know of Kirli Baba because of the mountain pass by the same name.
This pass is on the road from Bukovina to Maramures/Marmorosh and my
ancestors must have travelled it on their way to Czernowitz.
My parents and I made our way from the Bucovina to Transilvania over this
pass in 1945. I thought the name strange, but the scenery is wonderful.
