Everyone is Mishpoche…

Translated by Judy Grossman


Right to Left, Standing: Dvora Barolski (Levitt), daughter of Hirshl and Tzirl nee Zilber; Yehuda Slep, son of Emanuel and Chaya-Tzipe nee Chatzkel; Dora Levitt, daughter of Moshe and Chasya-Leah nee Meller; Hillel Schwartz, son of Moshe and Teibl nee Horwitz; Malka Zak (Levitt), daughter of Shimon and Chaya-Frume; Meir Levitt, son of Berl and Rachel

Seated: Sonya Berman (Orlin), daughter of Eliyahu and Rachel (Chatzkel); Chaya-Temma Levitt (Kagan), daughter of Zalmen and Shifra; Beile Pogrund (Silberstein), daughter of Avraham-Moshe and Chaya-Leah (Goland)

The three of them married in Dusiat and emigrated to South Africa.

All the others perished in the Holocaust.


Moshe-Zalmen Orlin in his youth, with his friend Pogrund (1913)


The family ties thanks to the great-grandmothers…

Natan Pogrund married Beile Silberstein (the daughter of Avraham-Moshe, the son of Michl and Dobra Berman).

Moshe Orlin married Teibl Berman (the daughter of Abba, Dobra's brother).

Sonia Orlin, Moshe's sister, married Yona Berman, Teibl's brother.

Who were the great grandmothers?

Two sisters:

Raska – the wife of Gershon Berman

and Freidke – the wife of Kehoth Chatzkel.

They had children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who filled the shtetl with the family names: Chatzkel, Orlin, Slep, Charit, Levitt, Kagan, Barron and Aires. The members of the Horwitz and Yosman families are also related to this branch.

And so few remained.
