Сколько жизнь моя продлится не забуду я вас. Что бы в жизни не случилось... не забудудьте вы меня. This is russian text. How many my life will be prolonged I shall not forget you. That in a life would not happen... Do not forget you me. Boris Goldshmit. 26.09.1911

Thanks mate! This is very important to me - I never knew I had family with the name "Goldshmit"...

Thanks a lot! Greetings.

I see, that Viacheslav has translated the text for you. I think, this is very important to know our roots. If you find something else, you are welcome also to my assistance. Olga

Thanks Olga. My findings so far clame that the man name is "Israel Sher" and he is from Ukrane. No one knows if it is true and who wrote the words on the card and to whom...Current thinking is that he was the brother of my grandmaother who left Ukrane and came to Israel in 1920...

Thanks for the kind and caring comment.

Hi Oronbb!

From this it is written on the card seems that the man called Boris was in loved with a woman. He calls he at the beginning Dear Rosa Sher - probably it is her name. I think that he tells her in a little different way the words:

**"How my life will go on when I could not forget you! This could not be happen in a life..(Here he probably wish to say that "This could be happen only once in a life!") Don't forget me! Boris, data **

What happened between them two probably nobody knew! But it is seen that it was something very important and very close to both of them! Probably he left the big love there in Ukraine and went to Israel.

Very romantic card Oron! Save it like a good history.

Your card remembers me that when I was a child I found in the street one very old post card in my country from 1938 I think it was. I saved it somewhere because I remember that I was impressed by this very old card. Hope my relatives did not trough it in the trash.
