I read the newspaper and my pain was great. But I could do nothing to help. My wife Kreyneh with the youngest daughter Rivke, were tortured by the murderous German hands, also my mother Elke.

We grew up together. During my childhood and later, together we studied in Oshmona. We lived in one room, shared the connection with her life, strolled together and found a common language. Life in that time was boring for the youth in the town Olshon. I went into their home, a pretty and well kept house, tidy in every corner. They ran a modest life. They subsisted from their dry store. Reyzeh was a very unique child, took care “as an eye in the head”. The savage German murderers killed Reyzele with her parents. The parents were murdered in the Oshmona Ghetto, Reyzele in Kovno Ghetto in July, 1944. No sign remained of the family. May my words be a memory for my friend Reyzele and her parents.
