Remembering the Vanished Kehillos
22 Sivan is the Yohrtzeit of my family's hometown in Hungary, Sajoszentpeter, a suburb of Miskolc. A few days earlier the Nazis rounded up the Jews and deported them all to Auschwitz. My choshu've grandmother, a"h, would fast that day till the end of her life, and she lost only siblings, not even her parents! Her parents had passed away years before and she was raised by an older Sister, Malka, hy"D. This picture shows the wedding of my grandmothers' parents, Moshe and Tzipporah Glick, in Sajosentpeter, in 1902. I don't know who the distinguished looking man in the center is, I wish I did. Most of these people probably never made it out of Auschwitz either, although I know some who did, and even one who only recently died.
