Chapter III

The Mandel Family of Dziedzilow

The Mandel family was well established in Dziedzilow. Wolf Mandel (son of David) was a small retailer and he married Liba Weintraub. They had six daughters: Pesha, Hannah, Dworah, Rivkah, Malka, and Cipe. All daughters married and had families. Pesha married Shmuel Altman, and after her death, her sister Cipe married Shmuel.

Cipe and Shmuel Altman had several children namely Awraham, Milke, and Bracha.

When Shmuel Altman died, Cipe was pregnant but she did not publicise the event. Apparently it was not visible. She decided to marry in order to provide a father for the expected child. She married Awraham Altholtz. The marriage lasted several weeks and ended in divorce. She gave birth to a son and named him Shmuel Mandel – Shmuel in memory of her late husband. She also resumed her maiden name Mandel.


Tziporah Mandel–Altman married Awraham Altholtz in Dziedzilow


Cipe remained in Dziedzilow and witnessed the German occupation of the village that lasted a short period of time. Then the Soviet forces entered the hamlet and established a communist regime. Many influential or well–to–do Jews and non–Jews were arrested and deported without any notice to their families. Private business enterprises were slowly liquidated. The press was curtailed to a minimum according to Karola Lowenkrown.[1] Then the Germans attacked the Soviet Union and Germans entered Dziedzilow. Persecutions of Jews began instantly. The Ukrainians did not have to get permission to harass the local Jews. Orders and more orders were issued aimed at pauperizing the Jewish population. Jewish trade was eliminated. Men were seized to do hard labour for which they were not paid. Then the Germans decided to expel all the Jews from Dziedzilow. Old and young, sick and healthy were forced to march to the ghetto of Nowy Jarczow where they all perished. According to the late Karola Lowenkrown, Tziporah (Cipe) was killed in 1942 in Jarczow. The date is substantiated by Pesil Pasternak in his Page of Testimony at Yad Vashem.

Shmuel Mandel grew up in Dziedzilow. He married Feige Weintraub and they decided to leave Dziedzilow for Argentina.

They had the following children:

Chaim, Shaul, Aida and Mindel
Chaim and Aida became medical doctors and both live in Israel as does Mindel. Shaul remained in Argentina.
