Friedman–Zajac Family AlbumGrandfather Moshe
My grandfather, who was born in Wysokie Litewskie in 1906 to Frieda and Israel Friedman:
My grandfather was one of 5 siblings. It was a very wealthy family. They owned the wheat trade in town and also the electric company – then in its beginning stage.
He knew my grandmother Ahuva Zajac, known as Leiba, in Wysokie Litewskie. In 1933, he came to Eretz Israel. She arrived in 1934 on a fictiitious marriage certificate, and they were officially married in Israel.
My mother remembers that her parents told her about a story passed on by someone who lived in Wysokie and immigrated to Russia: During WW2, the whole family hid in a bunker next to the Polish school in the city. A bit before the end of the war, someone informed on their hiding place and they were shot to death in the mass grave in the center of town.

As a souvenir
For my friend upon his departure for Eretz Israel,
I send you my photo
