My name is Mirjam Rotenstreich. I am a Dutch novelist. But the book that I am now writing, is about my father's life. He was born in 1912 in Butzanůw, a Jewish shtetl in Galicia, today Western Ukraine. As a victim of the houlocaust, he told almost nothing to me, his child. What I doknow, is that he, like many Russian Jews, served in the Red Army during World War II. He was an interpreter and took care of the communication.

My father died on July 24, 2014. He was 101 years old.

Recently I saw the photo above (Zhukov_Brandenburg_Gate_1945.jpg)

I was shocked. The man at the far left of the picture, next to Georgy Zhukov, wearing a shirt and tie under his uniform, looked so much like my father. On closer examination I started to doubt. Unfortunately, I can not find the name of this person anywhere. That is why I write to you. Can you give me the name of this man and the position he held?

You would make me a very happy person if you could help me find the name.

With kind regards,

Mirjam Rotenstreich

The man to Zhukovís right is in the uniform of a British officer, a captain. He is visible in some of the other photos from this event and is probably the interpreter on Montgomeryís staff.
