My great grandfather Isadore Steinhardt was the Foreign editor of the N.F.P. According to one source:
"It was considered, by many pundits to be the best newspaper in Europe, on a par with the Times in London and Le Temps in Paris. It may well have had "the highest journalistic standards in the world" being 'the foremost paper in the [Austro-Hungarian] Empire.' "
He was also the foreign correspondent of the Daily Mail. His expertise was the Balkan countries. He lived in Sophia in Bulgaria for ten years and was an expert on Bulgarian affairs. Subsequently Isidore was based in Sarajevo in 1918 and he was on the steps along with other dignitaries and members of the press, ready to greet the Archduke Franz Ferdinand shortly before he was assassinated. He died in 1941 in Prague and left a widow, my great grandmother, Regine Steinhardt. I have discovered his obituary. I can understand it partially, because I understand Russian.
