הגאון הגדול רבי זאב וואלף גינצלער זצ"ל הי"ד
My zeide was his talmid in Solgotarjan, Hungary. He's even in the yeshiva pic in Avrohom Fuchs' ישיבות הונגריא בגדלותן ובחורבנן. So I'd hear the name a lot. That is whenever the zeide felt comfortable speaking about those times... Then later my zeide was in Fehergyarmat, where he married and had four children, all of whom were murdered by the Nazis. So why not share this with all of you. It makes me feel a part of society; that my zeide's Rebbe was a somebody.
