The cipher was easier today. Thanks for that. They are quick!

Thanks Nate! This was the most challenging PoM puzzle so far for us.

We almost submitted Mordechai Rumkowski as the PoM, but decided not to at the last minute because the clue didn't quite match. We ended up researching close to a dozen other possibilities before deciding on Max Factor.

So what did the cipher stand for? It wasn't that easy for me...

Rob - Using the substitution a=z, b=y, c=x, etc., the cipher becomes:

"A Polish Jew I was destined to be, famous by name across the sea. Even today I'm a star of great fame. My grandson however was dogged by his shame."

Aha. That simple. Pfff.
