Notice that the sign dispays the honorable R' Friedman's name in "kiddush levana oisios." I guess a little self-promotion never hurt anyone...
This had to be either children of Chabad people or of Hungarian jews. my parents who were in the DP camps noted that amongst Polish, Lithuanian and other survivors there were no children . The first kids were born in 1946 and by 1949 most of the Jewish DP's had left Europe so they never were in school there. My aprents recollected when they first saw jewish children again amongst the Polsihjews who fled to russian safety in 1939 or in 1941 and then were allowed out.
even from the Hungarian there were very few, maybe those that were hidden, otherwise they too were exterminated.
On the picture I recognise one of my former melamdim.He is the one without the beard to the left side.He was a Litvak and a talmid of Reb Boruch Ber.He had lost his first family hyd.He taught my older brother in Foehrenwald Camp and lateron me.Most of the children right after the war were indeed Hungarians (mainly from Budapest) or Romanian (from the parts liberated by the Russians in early 1944) a few children that had survived with their parent(s) in hiding and children of repatriated Polish Jews from the USSR. I don't think that on this picture are any Lubavitchers, since most of them were in Pocking and not in Feldafing.
Yoshewho was the Rabbi YS Friedman that was the Nosi of the Yeshivah?
Unfortunately I have no idea,but judging by the name he was most probably a Hungarian.
Your post struck me because I also have pictures from Feldafing talmid torah, see them here.Not the same one apparently.
