My dad, Cantor Harry Rabinowitz, was born in Volksrust in 1914. I found this 1911 advert in the Gitlin Library three weeks ago. This job was applied for by my zaida N M Rabinowitz. Hence my dad was born in Volksrust!
Finally, we have had great fun in the past few days on Facebook identifying these people from Woodstock Cape Town in 1949.
Thanks to Abe Gulis for providing the photo.
We wish Abe and his family a “Long Life” on the passing of his beloved sister, Channa Gulis Eidelman.
