My father in law originally lived in Batu Mari Romania. My mother in law,
Czechoslovakia. My Mother in law, Weisel Family her mother came from a wealthy
family. Tirza Kaufman. She married Ephraim Weisel who was a Kosher butcher. It
is said that Ephraim Weisel was being sentenced to jail for selling Kosher meat.
Tirza went to the Judge and bribed him. The Judge let him out on condition that he
take the family out of the country. It was right before the onset of WWII. That
incident saved his family. They immigrated to Palestine and settled in the old
neighborhood of Florentine (Tel Aviv). They lived in the apartment building where
Yair Shtern was assassinated. It is now the Lechi Museum. They lived on the
2nd floor and Yair Shtern was living on the top floor. My mother in law remembered
the day they killed him and threw his body down the stair case in a body bag.
The Muskal Family came from a religious family. My Father in law was the boy that
was chosen to go to religious yeshiva. He learned with the Satmar Rebbe.
He was born 1922 so went to Yeshiva in years 1930's. Is it possible that you may
have additional information regarding these several families in the
Romania-Czechoslavkia areas before WWII times?
