The Pinski Family in Europe
Halensee, Germany
June, 1909



During the summer of 1909, David Pinski, his wife Adele (nee Koiffmann), and their two sons Henry and Gabriel (not pictured here), left New York City for a trip to Europe, here making a stop in Halensee, Berlin, Germany.

Their younger son Gabriel ("Gabri") was six months old at the time this photograph was taken.

 Sadly, Gabri passed away from polio in 1916 at the age of seven and one-half in Long Branch, New Jersey. It was in Long Branch that the Pinskis spent many of their summers.

The photograph shown here was part of a postcard sent to Mordechai Spektor, who at the time was in "Warschau, Russian Poland," i.e. what we know today as Warszawa, Poland.

Mordechai Spektor was David Pinski's editor during Pinski's time in Warszawa. Hodel (Adele), the sister of Spektor's wife, became Pinski's wife in 1897.

For a few years before emigrating to New York, in December 1899, the Pinskis lived in Berlin where their first son Henry (who was given the name Heinrich Heine) was born in 1898.
