In Memoriam


Avraham Chasid

Manus Goldenberg


One evening this year, in the month of Shevat[7], Avraham Chasid, of blessed memory, died in his sleep. My last childhood friend disappeared with him. When the bitter message reached me, I felt as if I had become an orphan. As I was sitting down to write these lines, his photo arrived in the mail. And here in front of me is Avraham the way I had seen him lately. His eyes and his smile radiate his warmth, honesty, and good heart together with his wise personality. This is the same facial expression that he had in his youth. I was emotional to the point of tears, and my inner soul carried me far far from here …

I can see those sun-filled years. We studied together at our town's first Hebrew school and later on at the Russian high school. Those years, at the beginning of this century, were full of enormous events that changed the face of the world. Those events, whose echoes reached our town, carved deep impressions in our hearts. They were beautifully expressed in the articles Avraham published in Voice of Kremenets Emigrants, booklets 12, 14, and 15.

[Page 20]

You read them and you wonder at how his eye was blessed with such a sense of observation and how strong his memory was. We sat for hour upon hour during my rare visits to his home in Herut, bringing up rich, dramatic memories of the events of which we were a part, our days in the Jewish and Russian schools, and the trips we took with our classmates to the surrounding hills during our summer vacation. We laughed out loud when we remembered the wild pranks we played during our stormy adolescence.

There were two homes in our town in which, already at the beginning of the 20th century, the only spoken language was Hebrew. It was a typical sign of their Zionism. But the home of Avraham's father, R' Mordekhay Chasid, of blessed memory, was a different type of Zionist home. It was a spacious home that stood inside an orchard on the town's outskirts. There was a vegetable garden by the entrance to the yard, and a milk cow stood in the cowshed on the other side. It was an exceptional thing in our town at that time. The family members had brought the cow from the farm where they had previously lived. From the minute you entered their home, you felt as if you were in the country. You were welcomed with a sweet-smelling glass of milk that Avraham's mother, Shprintse, of blessed memory, had milked. You tasted fresh black bread, coated with honey, that she had baked that same day, and you and your friends were welcome to the loaded fruit trees that stood in their garden. You could climb on them and eat to your heart's content.

Inside the house, on bookshelves, were Russian encyclopedias, various science books, classic Russian and Hebrew literature, volumes of HaShiloach[8], bound copies of Hatsefira, and more. Beautiful drawings by their oldest son, Zev, of blessed memory, hung on the walls. Later, he became a professor of biochemistry and a member of the National Academy of Science in the United States (the reader will find interesting information about him and his parents in Voice of Kremenets Emigrants, booklets 3, 5, and 12). In the background of all that, in the peaceful country atmosphere and the family members' relaxed manner, was the pleasant, soothing sound of the daughters playing the piano. Every once in a while, illegal meetings of the first members of the Zionist party took place there. And from there, from that house, R' Mordekhay's sons arrived in the Land, full of pioneer spirit and love for the Land that they did not abandon until the end of their days.

After immigrating in 1921, Avraham worked in the Petach Tikva orchards for some time. Later, he moved to Tel Mond, where he was a founder of Herut, the prosperous farming community. With his dedicated wife, Etya, a graduate of the agricultural school in Petach Tikva, he built a blooming farm.

[Page 21]

R' Mordekhay, who had dreamed about immigrating to Israel all his life, joined his sons with Shprintse. They were fortunate enough to see their sons engaged in farming and the Torah, Avraham in Herut and Yakov, of blessed memory, in Kibbutz Kineret.

Avraham was greatly interested in the Organization of Kremenets Emigrants. At each meeting, in each telephone conversation, and in each letter, he dedicated a great deal of space to questions about our organization's events and was very happy with each project we undertook to memorialize our martyrs and our old home.

Avraham was a well-read man. He took special care of his books and read them in every spare moment.

During his last year, he was hospitalized a number of times as a result of a number of heart attacks. The last heart attack subdued him. Shortly before his death, he finished some important research on the “Secret of Creation,” which he had worked on for a long time.

His research was published after his death in the periodical Chavatselet Hasharon, which is published twice a year by the district rabbinical office with the cooperation of the District Council of Hadar Hasharon. The magazine's editor is the regional rabbi, Rabbi Asher Zemel.

Avraham's mother died in 1942 from a stroke she suffered after learning about the destruction of Kremenets' Jews, among them her two sons, her daughter, and their families. His father died in 1949.

May the memory of the three be blessed!

A few weeks after Avraham's death, we read in the newspapers that his youngest son, Nechemya, a farm owner in Herut, had been chosen by the defense minister as the economic adviser to the defense ministry. It is a shame that Avraham did not have the pleasure of seeing it.

Images of Pesach Lerner, of Blessed Memory

Mordekhay Gurvits


Young and full of principles, he left his parents' home in the Diaspora and arrived in the Land in 1921 with one purpose: to build the Land.

His way in the Land was not a bed of roses – like many of his fellow pioneers, he was forced to work and suffer in the difficult conditions that existed in the Land. He did not always eat his fill, and malaria did not spare him, but he coped with everything.

We have to say that, to his credit, his main concern was to help others, and he always put himself last. He was innocent in his ways, simple and modest in his manner, and easygoing with people. In a way, he was quite rich in good deeds and activities.

He did a great deal to help Holocaust survivors who arrived penniless. He never stopped working, and his pockets were always open – so much so that he neglected his own family at times, choosing instead to help others.

With his father-in-law, Yisrael Sudman, of blessed memory, he was a founder of the Organization of Shumsk Emigrants in Israel. He established a charitable fund that lent a helping hand to those who were in need, mostly new emigrants from Shumsk.

As the organization's chairman, he took the load on himself. Thanks to his dedicated, tireless work, the organization continued to exist. His hard labor yielded fruit, and he was rewarded by seeing the publication of a memorial book for Shumsk martyrs, the planting of trees in the Martyrs' Forest in the Jerusalem Corridor, the hanging of a memorial plaque for Shumsk martyrs in the basement of the Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, the creation of a scholarship fund, and the adoption of a school in Or Akiva (near Hadera), which dedicated a special corner and small library to the town of Shumsk in which students can learn about Shumsk.

As one of the board members (secretary) who had worked with him since 1948, I appreciated his energy and his activities for the organization – even during his last year, when his health deteriorated. He surprised us during the last memorial service for the martyrs of Shumsk when he suddenly stood up and announced his resignation from the board.

Those who attended the memorial service unanimously elected him honorary president of the organization.

[Page 23]

With his death, the nation of Israel, especially people from Shumsk, has lost a beloved man with a delicate soul who dedicated his life to helping others.

His actions and activities will stand for him in the next world, and his memory will stay with us.

May his pure soul be bound up in the bond of eternal life.

May his memory be blessed.

Pola Krayzelman,
of Blessed Memory

Mara Krayzelman


Pola Krayzelman, of blessed memory, was a member of the Basis family, which lived in the Dubno suburb. The sister of Barukh Basis and Bela Grinberg, of blessed memory, she passed away on January 6, 1979.

She was one of the few graduates of the Russian girls' high school, Aleksina, to survive.

During World War II, she was left alone with her two children in Russia. Her husband, Liova, of blessed memory, a native of Shumsk, was then serving in the Russian army and fighting on a distant battlefield.

After her husband died in 1967, Pola moved in with her daughter, Mara, and lived there until her death. She was a wise, goodhearted woman. Her family and friends valued and loved her very much.

Because she had been ill for the past few years, she did not mix with people except for relatives and a few Kremenetsers. However, she always took a great interest in her fellow townspeople.

Pola left a married daughter and son, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Shmuel Tsizin,
of Blessed Memory

Manus Goldenberg


Shmuel died on June 25, 1979. His father, R' Lipa Tsizin, was an observant Jew with a curly beard that was as black as tar. He was one of those Jews who knew how to stand on their own with strength and pride. He owned a flourmill in our area and served God with joy and dedication.

[Page 31]

His sons followed in his footsteps, according to the demands of the time, and were active members of the Zionist movement. During World War I, three of them fought in different battlefronts in the ranks of the Russian army. When this army crumbled with the October Revolution, they returned home with their guns in their hands, guarding them until the day when the order would come. Shmuel, who was 18 at that time, obtained a gun that never left his side. When the self-defense force was established in our town, he joined it, bringing his weapon. He traveled between the towns in the surrounding area for his father's business. At that time, the roads were very dangerous, and many paid with their lives and their possessions for daring to travel. More than once, when he arrived in a certain town that was under threat of a pogrom, he joined the local youth self-defense group and helped push the rioters back. So it happened in Yampol, Teofipol (Chan), Bilotserkov[9], and other places. In the Land, he was an active member of the Haganah in his place of residency.

Shmuel immigrated to the Land in 1925. At first, he worked in the Petach Tikva orchards. There he met his wife, Chana, may she live long. She was one of the first coordinators of the Organization for Working Mothers in their town. She and Shmuel were active members of the Mapai political party there.

In 1936, they moved to Ramat Gan. There they built a spacious home and raised a daughter and a son, Avshalom, of blessed memory, who fell in the War of Independence. We wrote about him in booklet 2. In Ramat Gan, he did not abandon his agricultural work. At first, he worked in the area's citrus groves as a contractor and, later on, as a foreman in a large farm on the shores of the Yarkon River. At the age of 60, he retired, and together with Chana, he continued to take care of their garden.

During his life, he never complained about his failing health. His only son's death was the only thing that subdued him. He did not lose his lucidity until his death, a matter that eased his suffering.

He was 80 at the time of his death. He left behind his wife, Chana; a daughter and her two daughters; a grandson and a granddaughter from his son, of blessed memory; and a brother, Yehoshue, who owns a farm in a farming community in the Taanakh region.

May his memory be blessed!

Yitschak Biberman,
of Blessed Memory

Y. Rokhel


The Biberman family was known in Kremenets as an outstanding Zionist family. Their home on Slovatski Street and the spacious garden beside it served as a gathering place for members of the Zionist youth movement. There were eight sons and four daughters in the Biberman family. Two of them died as children. The rest immigrated to the Land, including the mother (the father, Shimon, died before then). The first to immigrate, long before World War I, was the oldest son, Moshe, who worked as a farmer in Rechovot. Sometime later, he returned to Kremenets and lived there for a number of years. He was active in the Zionist Federation and later moved to Moscow, where he currently lives. His brothers Avraham and Yitschak immigrated in February 1921 with the first group of pioneers from Kremenets. Later, the remaining members of the family immigrated to the Land. They settled in the Land and worked at construction, farming, and other jobs.

Yitschak Biberman was born in Shevat 5659. He immigrated to Land in Adar 5661 and died after a long illness in 5738[10].

We can read about his first years in the Land in the article “The First Group of Pioneers from Kremenets” in Pinkas Kremenets, page 115. With the group, Yitschak joined the Labor Battalion named after Yosef Trumpeldor, the Rosh HaAyin platoon, which paved the railroad from Rosh HaAyin to Petach Tikva. The Kremenets group, the Biberman brothers (Avraham and Yitschak) included, held an important place in Platoon A in both their work and their social life. Because of ideological disagreements, they stayed there for only half a year. Most members of the Kremenets group belonged to the Young Worker[11] political party, while most battalion members belonged to Unity of Labor.

Due to a difference of opinion, the members of the Kremenets group left the brigade and scattered. Some moved to Tel Aviv, where they joined the Binyan construction company, which built the “homeless” subdivision (today's Bugrashov Street), the Rotenberg power station, and other buildings in various locations.

[Page 31b]

The Biberman brothers moved to Jenin, where they built barracks for British officers and paved a road. From there, the Biberman brothers and other Kremenetsers moved to Tiberias. They stayed there for a number of years and established the construction group Bazelet. They lived in a commune there and built the housing complex Kiryat Shmuel, named after Herbert Samuel, the British-Jewish high commissioner. This group earned a good reputation for the organization and the quality of their work.

Later, Yitschak lived for some time in Haifa, where he worked in construction and studied at the Technion. A short time later, the two Biberman brothers moved to Jerusalem with two of their brothers who had just arrived in the Land. The four brothers participated in the building of Hebrew University. Avraham settled in Jerusalem permanently and worked as a building contractor. One of Jerusalem's subdivisions is named after him, and he was crowned a Worthy Citizen of Jerusalem by the city. In 1928, Yitschak moved to Tel Aviv, raised a family, and established an independent group of construction contractors in which he worked for many years. But his age caught up with him, and construction work became too difficult. He joined Hamegaper[12] as the director of the Tel Aviv branch, where he worked until his retirement.

This is the life story of Yitschak Biberman, an exceptionally wholehearted pioneer. His last years were not good, and he was sick most of the time. On 19 Av 5738[13], he passed away at the age of 79.

May his memory be blessed.

He left a wife, Riva, and a son, Shimon, who is a colonel in the regular army and has three children. His daughter, Noa, is a graduate of Tel Aviv University, where she works as a secretary for the rector. She has three children.

Chana Landsberg,
of Blessed Memory

Yehoshue Golberg


Chana Landsberg passed away on May 6 of this year. Her father, Menachem Medler, was a well-known wheat merchant in the Dubna suburb. He was an honest, well-respected man. From the beginning of her teen years, she was a member of the Pioneer movement in Kremenets. She received her pioneer training first in Dubrovitsa[14] and later in Poytshe near Dubna. In 1933, immigration to the Land was halted, and she returned to Kremenets. Later, she returned to a pioneer training kibbutz in Klosova, and in 1934, with her husband, may live long, she immigrated to the Land.

[Page 33]

In 1937, Chana and Avraham sent immigration certificates to Chana's parents in Kremenets and brought them and her sister, Miryam, may she live long, to the Land.

Chana's father, R' Menachem, died in the Land in 1948. Her mother, Tsiril, died in 1956. Chana and Avraham's home was always open to fellow townspeople who arrived in the Land. Each one of us received encouragement and an open ear to all our problems. Chana's glowing, beautiful face and her constant smile radiated warmth.

With her death, the noble soul of a daughter of our town has disappeared. She was the symbol of a real “Jewish mother”: a wife, a mother, and a devoted, loyal grandmother. She left a husband, Avraham; a son and daughter, both married; grandchildren; and a sister.

Her image will remain among our fellow townspeople for eternity.

May her soul be bound up in the bond of eternal life.

In Memory of Our Fellow Townsman (Shumsk) and Friend,
Arye (Leyb) Landau, of Blessed Memory

Shraga Vaysman

August 2, 1979, marked the 30th anniversary of the day Arye (Leyb) Landau was killed in a tragic work accident.

On July 1, 1941, Arye and I and a few friends left Shumsk for Yampol to stay for a week or two until the German occupiers were pushed back (as we were told), and then we were to return home.

[Page 35]

When we arrived in Yampol, we saw that a lot of people were fleeing. We continued to walk until July 3, when we arrived in Starokonstantinov[15]. With a number of people from Shumsk, we moved to Sara Fuks's sister's home. We were planning to stay there until we could return home, but we saw the panic in the town, heard gunfire from Shepetovka, and saw the panicked retreat of the Red Army. A Jewish officer we met in the street told us that the situation was very bad. When he passed through the Lemberg area with the army, the Ukrainians shouted at them from the windows, and he managed to survive only through a miracle. At the same time, we found out that the Germans had taken over a large area, and we also heard Stalin's famous speech calling for a full retreat. We saw that all the organizations were leaving town. We hurried to the train station with all of our friends, including Arye. Two days into the journey, we were heavily bombed at night. The train stopped, and all the passengers climbed out and lay on the ground. When we returned to the train, we could not find each other, and for the duration of the war, we did not know if Arye was still alive.

In 1949, when I was already in the Land, I arrived home from my military base for a holiday. My wife, Tsipora, told me that Arye had arrived from Poland with his wife, received an apartment in an Arab home in Jaffa, and begun working for Solel Boneh in sewer construction. Arye visited our home every once in a while, and we received him warmly and made him feel at home. We talked a lot about the old days. He was happy in the Land and did not have special demands. He wanted to work and build a home in the Land. A few weeks later, he was appointed foreman of a group that was digging ditches on Neve Shanan Street in Tel Aviv.

On the eve of Tisha B'Av, we went to visit him. We did not find Arye at home, and his wife told us he was probably working overtime. Worried, we returned home, but we did not want to assume that something bad had happened to him. But early the next day, we learned about the tragedy: two workers had been buried in a landslide. Arye had rushed to save them, and after he pulled them out, there was a second landslide, and he was killed. This incident hit us like a thunderclap on a clear day. We lost a good friend and one of Shumsk's best sons. It is sad that after all the hardship he experienced during the war, he was able to live in Israel for only two months.

The state of Israel lost a good citizen, and we, his fellow townspeople, lost a very good friend. We will always remember him.

Arye was buried in Kiryat Shaul Cemetery, and his grave is one of the first there.

His wife, Tsipora, and I visit his grave every year. May his memory be blessed.

Visit by Mrs. Chernotska of Kremenets

From May 17 to May 22 of this year, Mrs. Alina Chernotska, wife of the last district governor of Kremenets, visited the Land as a tourist.

We held a reception in her honor at our club, and she told us about the activities of the Organization of Polish Kremenets Emigrants in England, called Biesiada Kreshmienitska.

She brought us greetings and blessings from the survivors of Cavalry Battalion 12, which was stationed in Bialokrenitsa[16] in Kremenets for the last four years before the war broke out. She was the director of Kremenets' social services department and looked after the Talmud Torah School, the orphanage, and the Jewish hospital in our town. Now, at the age of 79, she is managing the archive and collecting historical documents on the Polish underground war against the Nazi oppressors. She visited Yad Vashem, the Museum of the Diaspora, Hebrew University, and a number of kibbutzim.

Tsipora and Mordekhay Katz in Israel

Manus Goldenberg

A few weeks ago, our fellow townspeople Tsipora and Mordekhay Katz came to Israel for a visit. They were welcomed warmly by fellow townspeople in Israel; the management of the Jewish National Fund, of which Tsipora is an active member in Buenos Aires; and the World Congress of Polish Jews, in which Mordekhay Katz represents Argentinean Jews. At the end of their visit, a successful reception was given in their honor at the college. An article about the Katz family's visit is published in Yiddish in this booklet.

[Page 38]

President Yitschak Navon invited a group of veterans who fought in the ranks of the Polish Army and the Red Army at the end of World War II to speak about their activities. In the picture, the president shakes Yehoshue's hand after being presented with a copy of the Voice of Kremenets Emigrants booklet, telling him about the activities of our organization in the Land and abroad.
