"Itzhak Frey & Son"
A heartwarming "interview" with an elderly אויבערלענדישע איד אין מאה שערים
Includes nice footage of present-day Meah Sheorim
Dovid Frey introduces the documentarian to his elderly father, "the oldest cashier in the Middle East". R' Yitzchok Frey was the son HaRav Meir Yehuda Frei, Rov of Surany (שוראן), Hungary. He passed away on 6 Shvat of this year. He tells the interviewer his opinion about everything from President Roosevelt to the current lack of world knowledge on the part of young people, and was not afraid to tell the interviewer his opinion about the people of his native Switzerland.
He reminds me of my Zeide.
