Leyb Rozental, of Blessed Memory

A quiet, unassuming wonderful person, “father” of the orphanage, who dedicated his entire life to poor and lonely children and perished along with them at the German Nazi murderers hands. I consider him the Kremenets “Janusz Korczak.”

May his memory be honored!

MAY GOD REMEMBER! We mention all our relatives from our father's and our mother's side, as well as our good neighbors and all Kremenets Jews, whom the Nazi murderers in human form murdered so horribly and cruelly. May their souls be bound up in the bond of eternal life.

POUR OUT YOUR WRATH! God, pour out your wrath on the beasts who weakened, stained, and denied the Lord's image with their deeds.

PURSUE THEM! Chase them with your anger and annihilate them so that they may be eradicated from the earth.
