Local family with visitor.

A local family with visitor. The cemetery is in the background.

It is likely that the visitor is S.L. Hoffman, who grew up in nearby Turetz and emigrated to America at age 14. He returned to Europe many times and made major contributions to the well being of the Jews of Turetz and Mir. See Turetz Yizkor Book (page 13 for a photo,and pages 51-52 and 108 in the English section for more about Mr. Hoffman)
