Klaipėda/Memel (Lithuania), 1929

A picture taken of my father, Aaron-Israel Rachowitz, and his parents/my grandparents: Riva-Rachil Orelowitz Rachowitz and Hirsch-Meir Rachowitz. If I am not mistaken, this beautiful photo was put on display in the shop window in Memel. My father was born in Memel (Marktstrasse 11/12 or Turgaus gatvė 11/12, please see old picture below) on June 8, 1929. Below is my father's birth certificate issued in Memel in German language (Register Nr. 358/29)
