This photo from 1913 was taken in Ukraine before R Berg's father (the man in the photo) left for the US. Her uncle (the man in the photograph being shown to the camera) had already left in 1911. This time in Russia was particularly dangerous for Jews, with anti-Semitism running rampant. The Berg family settled in Bangor, escaping a life of czarist pogroms and persecution. #bangormaine #bangorhistory #ukraine #immigrants #jewishhistory #jewishmaine #mainehistory
