Pronunc. in German[edit]

I changed it from /Zalɪŋɐ/ to /'za:lɪŋɐ/. -> Indication of stress, of long /a:/ and /Z/ -> /z/. Wathiik (talk) 14:29, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

Why is the German pronunciation even here, given that he wasn't German, his father was said to be Jewish Lithuanian rather than German, and this is the English Wikipedia? Deleting it until such time as someone can justify its inclusion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:304:CF64:DA20:2182:146C:EE4B:6095 (talk) 07:05, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Appendix titles[edit]

Despite the fact that it is not a strict requirement (see WP:FNNR), I'd suggest we follow the following convention: "Notes" for the explanatory material and "Citations" for the citations. A good practice in Wikipedia is that sections should not bear confusingly similar titles: my rationale is that 'footnotes' and 'notes' are confusingly similar to each other. I would like to stress that my proposal is not about exercising any kind of misplaced consistency. It's a proposal towards less confusing conventions in a specific series of articles. --Omnipaedista (talk) 09:51, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
