  1. Anna Kosbab (b. abt 1872) is a historic figure in Cleveland. She and her sister Hedwig ran a neighborhood "help the immigrants" house in the east end.

  2. Wow. Anna and her sister Hedwig helped to improve the lives of so many immigrants. It's interesting that the focus of their centre has shifted over the years, but simple idea of helping others in the neighbourhood is still at its core.
