According to notes left by Yasha KAMBER, his cousin Abraham "Abrusha " KAMBER born 1897 was a doctor in Shavel in the 1930s and later in the ghetto there .

Yasha tells that Abrusha was married to a non-Jewish woman and the wife and son survived WW2 and the Holocaust. Abrusha perished in Muhldorf Concentration Camp on 6 December 1944

I will be grateful for any information about Dr. KAMBER and any suggestion about how to trace his son. I suspect that the wife went back to her family and her maiden name.

Kartun, Cartoon

A picture of the Kartun/Cartoon family from Shavli, Lithuania Taken at their Dacha in 1929. It was probably sent to my great grandmother Masha Golda Kartun Robbins who was living in Philadelphia ( some relatives moved to South Africa) . The older man in the photo might be her brother Ber Kartun who ended up in the Shavli ghetto ( he had 2 sons born c 1920).

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you
