alger2 This vintage real photo postcard features Hungarian actress Gitta Alpar (1903-1991). She starred in operas and operettas. This photograph is risque relative to the time it was taken. Miss Alpar is wearing a tight bathing suit. Note that the swim suit has a nice design on it’s front. She is posing in front of a large rattan chair. Gitta was born in Budapest, Hungary. She was the daughter of a Jewish cantor. From an early age, she studied singing and piano at the Academy of Music. In 1923, she made her debut at the Budapest State Opera House. She had a long career and she performed at the great opera houses of Vienna, Berlin, an many other international venues. Alpar’s first films were made in Germany. In 1931 she married an actor, Gustav Frohlich. Their marriage ended in 1935 because Alpar was Jewish and the marriage was against the law in Nazi Germany. A related fact is that both of her brothers, a pianist, and a violinist, were concentration camp survivors. Alpar appeared on Hitler’s anti semitic “hit list”. She left Germany in 1933, and then did some globe hopping. She first went to Austria, followed by Hungry, England, and the United States. She continued her singing and film career in the US. The IMDb credits Alpar with nine acting credits from 1932 through 1941. Alpar’s accent ruined her chance to be a successful Hollywood actress. After the war, she primarily worked as a singing teacher. For a sample of Miss Alpar’s singing voice and acting, click on the YouTube segment below. This postcard was published by Ross Verlag and is part of a series (no.6683/2). Alpar’s photo was taken by FFG  (Froehlich-Flm GmbH). This postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

  1. Since your purchase of Book 3 never showed up as bought at KDP, I sent them an inquiry, but now the “help”persons (2 different ones) want PROOF that the book was bought. Here is what the last one said:  Your Inquiry2Yahoo/Inbox Hello, I thank you for taking the time to contact us. I understand your concern about the missing sale for your paperback  “Los Pobres”. To assist you I’ve checked the ‘sales dashboard in your KDP account and see that there were no sales reported for October , November, December-till date.The last sale I’m able to see in the  KDP reports for this paperback is from Aug 2018.However, I understand the review proves there was a sale.I’ve checked the paperback detail page and I’m sorry I’m unable to find this review. We request you to revert to us with the order ID so we can investigate into this. We’re waiting to hear from you. Regards, Deepika T.S. Kindle Direct Publishing

    • I had clearly told them, the buyer had sent me an email, not posted an online review, but the SALE should have been recorded by KDP regardless. If you can supply me with the proof they seem to need, I’d be most grateful. I hope the books are worth all the annoying chaos KDP generates.

    • I hope this is helpful. bruce
