R'Yakov Shklyar

Former resident of Lakhva. A friend of A. I. Slutzki and his family. One of the leaders of the joint organization Lenin-Lakhva. Was very active – and activated others – in helping the needy. Had a warm heart and was always willing to listen.

Twice visited Israel and in 1954 took part in a memorial assembly in honor of the martyrs of our town; on this occasion our townspeople had the opportunity to get to know him and appreciate him.

His life ended on 6 June 1955. It was a great loss.

His memory will remain with us forever and his soul is bound in the bonds of our lives

Mordechai son of Yosef Tziklig

He was known in our tows by the name “Motl Yoshke's.” He was careful in keeping all mitzvoth [comandments], one of the first to get up early in the morning and go to the synagogue to pray. He was one of the esteemed people in town, and his place in the Old Synagogue was at the Eastern Wall. He prayed with enthusiasm and devotion. For many years, he was the one to blow the Shofar during the High Holy Days.

He was a scholar. He always found time to look into a book. Since his childhood he was a friend of my father z'l. He was the only Jew in our town who worked for many years as an employee in the Agrekov Estate, and thus enjoyed special privileges.

His home was a meeting place for culture lovers. He gave his sons a good education – his son and his daughter are medical doctors, they live in Moscow.

May his memory be blessed

Mordechai son of R'Yosef Zeitchik

Mordechai was born in 1919 in Lenin to Yosef and Yachna Zeitchik. His father worked in a plywood factory in Mikshewitz and before WWI he moved there.

Mordechai was given a Jewish and Zionist education; when he grew up he learned carpentry and began to help his father in the sustenance of the family.

When the Russians occupied the town, he began to work in the factory in Mikshewitz and in 1940 he was drafted to the Russian army and was sent to serve at the Finland border. When the Russian-German war broke out, he served in the Red Army and was one of the first to fight the German invaders. He excelled in his service and reached the rank of First Sergeant and received medals as a tank commander.

His family was murdered in Mikshewitz, with the local Jewish population. Mordechai was spared during the entire war, but one month before the end of the war the fate caught up with him; in 1945 his death was reported to the family.


His cousin
Yehosua Lichtenstein,
from Lakhva
