Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Summons to review an inheritance case. However, the summons turned out to be undeliverable (aufruferfolglos, zuruck), and was returned and filed with other Lemberg World War II-period papers in the Lvov city court. Many of the original pre-war Lemberg (Lvov) residents were uprooted and no longer lived at their registered addresses after the Soviet, and later, Nazi occupations. Some ended up in Siberia or Central Asia. Others were in Nazi concentratin camps or killed by the Soviets, Nazis, and their collaborators, or in the Ukrainian-Polish Nationalistic strife, and yet others evacuated with the Soviets as the Nazis approached Lvov in the summer of 1941.
