The Mir Yiddish Folk-shul in 1937

Folkshul 1937

In 1937, Morris Ziskind, from South Africa, a friend of the Dancig family, visited Mir while on a trip to his own family's shtetl. He brought back photos of the children and teachers in the Folkshul in Mir, as well as a card signed by the teachers and students.
This photo is from the collection of Bee Joffin (Brocha Dancig Joffin) who was born in Mir. Her father, Dovid Dancig was among those instrumental in establishing the Folkshul.

(Morris Ziskind is fourth from the right in the back row (tall bald man). Everyone else is a resident of Mir.)
