Seeking info on one Pinchas Schneersohn, last of Berditchev
Received via e-mail:
I am trying to identify Pinchas Schneerson. In the attached photo R-L Chaya Ita Twersky, daughter of Admur Shlomo Benzion of Chernobyl. She married her mother's brother Yehoshua Elazar Chodorov son of Zalman Chodorov of Berdichev; Sarah Chodorov daughter of Zalman Chodorov Admur of Berdichev - Married a Schneersohn, Pinchas Scheersohn - was he the husband of Sarah Chodorov? Who was his father? He was from Retchica (Belorussia - white russia) - Killed by the Fascists with wife and 3 daughters in Berdichev. עד כאן
I was thinking this was Pinchas Schneersohn, son Yehuda Leib, son of the Retchitcher Rebbe, Reb Sholom Ber, son of Reb Yehuda Leib of Kopust, son of the Tzemach Tzedek. But that Pinchas died in the Holy Land, and it didn't seem like he had three daughters. There also does NOT seem to be such a Pinchas in the ספר הצאצאים - which is the source for all things Schneersohn. But then again, the letter is from a cousin who would know about this.
See letter below. Any and all would be greatly appreciated. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
