I think the child in the pic is former MK Avraham Burgs uncle.Iirc, his father Yosef Burg, long time Knesset member and head of the National Religous Party married Slonims sister.They were children of the banker Slonim, in who's house Jews had barricaded themselves feeling safer because of Slonims 'good' connections with the locals.Unfortunately Slonim was brutally murdered with the othe kedoishim.He was the grandson of Rebbitzen Menucha Rochel Cooli Slonim, herself a grandaughter of Rabbi Shneour Zalman, founder of Chabad.
p.s I remember Rabbi Dov Cohen well.He lived in Eretz Yisroel for many decades, coming to study in the Chevroner Yeshiva as a young bochur and never lost his American accent! He was the father of well known talmidei chachomim and father in law of the well known Rabbi Yehuda Addes RY of Kol Yaakov,THE only yeshiva in Eretz Yisroel with a Sephardic Rosh Yeshiva and a very significant Ashkenazi student body

I guess the Adess family falls into the "Sephardic Litvishe" category, a very strange phenomenon.

What's strange about Sephard/litvish?
Today you have any of the following with many Sephardim:Lubavitch,Breslov,Satmar,Mizrachi,Neturei Karta,Lakewood,Mir Flatbush,etc....
