Dusiat and Antaliepte - members of the same family
The Glick, Barron and Levin families are related to each other.
The brothers Yankel and Avraham Barron were foresters, who originated from the shtetl of Antazova.
Yankel and his wife Hinde-Aide were my grandparents, the parents of my mother Rochl-Leah. My sister Adina-Hinde, is named after my grandmother.
Avraham Barron, whose name is mentioned among those injured in the pogrom in Dusiat (1905), had a long life, and when age limited his eyesight, his daughter Nechama-Dobre Levin cared for him devotedly in her home in Antaliepte. When I would come there to visit with mother, Avraham would place his hands on my head and bless me. I remember that he looked so old to me then, and his body was so wizened.
Ida Lunski (Levin): My mother Fania (nee Aharonowitz) was from Avante [Alunta]. My father Leizer Levin was the son of Nachman and Nechama-Dobre, the daughter of Avraham Barron. We lived in Rokishki [Rokikis] and there were good relations with our family Levin in Antaliepte and with others from Dusiat who worked in Rokishki, and we'd visit one another.
I remember very well the tenth birthday celebration of my brother Nachman, and I even remember most of the guests by name, at our home in Rokishki.

Only a few of them survived the war.
Yehuda Levin: Avraham Barron was my great-grandfather (my grandmother Nechama-Dobre's father). I was still a little boy, and I remember that I would serve him a glass of alcohol every day. On the last night he woke me up, placed his hands on my head and blessed me. He also told me that the next morning he would no longer be among the living, and his request was that my parents inform all our relatives to come and accompany him on his final journey. And in fact, he died that same night.
Ida Lunski (Levin): When my great-grandfather Avraham Barron passed away, the newspapers in Lithuania wrote that he had lived longer than anyone else in Lithuania.
