Louis Handler was the son of Joseph and Lena Handler. I would love to know the full translation of the Hebrew on his gravestone.

Here, too, the father predeceased his son Louis. How very sad that this family lost two young men, who were both killed in action during WW2. Their mother was more than likely a widow, unless she had remarried since their father had passed away.

I checked this again for you. Aryeh was the Hebrew name for Louis. He was the son of Yosef/Joseph. Per the letters Z'L, Joseph predeceased his son Louis.

This is the information provided on this tombstone. Perhaps you can contact the cemetery to see what their records indicate.....Jo
