Hi Robert,

Thanks for the info.

As to asking for the specific dates.... I had assumed the name had changed sometime between 1933 and 1936 and that the end date would have been towards the end of the war, but I wasn't sure which year (perhaps 1934 or 1935 to start or 1944 or 1946 to end depending on how quickly name changes could be processed. Today, the renaming of a street can be a very politically charged process depending on the street, the person commemorated and can take years).

Do you (by any small chance) happen to know if there are any pre-war residential dwellings left on this street? Google maps makes it a challenge to get an idea of what is there today, though it appears to be larger commercial buildings or apartment complexes. (approx. address 97 Alleestra├če).

Once again, thank you for taking the time to answer despite the fairly logical answer.
