Died in Kopaygorod [Kopaihorod, Ukraine] at 40, a people's doctor, gave free help to the people of his community during the deportation to Transnistria.
Meshulam Zusia Weissberg
Died at 22
" I will not give my life without a price" These were the words that were on his lips in the days of his suffering and wandering on his way to the Ukraine. When it was rumored that on the way back from Mohilev to Ataki, the Germans would drown all the Jews in the Danister river, he had plans to drag with him his oppressor. He was 22 at the time of his death, but well accustomed to hard work in his "youth movement" the Shomer Hatzair, and Zionism, which was always top on his mind and he devoted to it all of his energy in his short life.
He was supposed to make "aliya" in 1940 but the needs of the movement delayed , and in the meantime the government changed and the soviets came into Brichany. Even then his Zionist works didn't end, this time in the underground, until the necessity arose. When the refugees from Kofedgorod were deported he didn't want to accept a life of anticipation of death from hunger and of disease and decided to escape and find a safer place. " If it is at all possible" he said " to get to a place which is more secure, I will make the effort to save you from this dark pit". He did succeed to reach Rhovilevitz, there he died together with all the residents of that city. An eye witness of the few survivors told that has thrown into to the mass-grave, but jumped out and started to escape. He was shot and was hit in the leg. They gagged him and threw him into the pit and was buried alive.

Gitel, wife of Yechiel Tasharcas
A loyal companion, went in his way and assisted him in his work, community and Zionist. She drank the glass of poison during the deportation from Brichany.

With a clear mind she dove into the river's waters saving herself unbearable suffering to her body and soul.
