This information was submitted

Here is a picture from Rezekne. It was taken about 1904. It's a picture of my paternal grandmother, Bassewa Pliner born Luban and her three eldest children: Sarah, David (my father) and Abraham (Al) to her left. It was taken just before their emigration to the US. My grandfather, Hirsch (Harry) was in the US earning money to pay for their passage in 1905 and 1906.

Leiba Pliner is originally from Latvia but from the town of Zilupe. His family moved to Israel around 1973. The rest of the family comes from Rezekne, but his grandfather, Yehuda Leib Pliner, moved to that town at some point.

Here is a picture of my grandparents in the US , originally from Rezekne.
