THE PHOTO IS OUR GRANDFATHER TAKEN CIRCA 1920? IN NEW YORK BORN IN THE AUSTRIA HUNGARIA ANSERVED IN
THE ARMMY DURING WORLD WAR 1 ACCORDING TO WHAT MY FATHER TOLD ME IS THAT HE WAS MADE AN OFFICER OF
A JEWISH AND GYPSY UNIT. HIS UNIT WAS HIT BY A BOMBARDMENT WHILE CROSSING A BRIDGE THE BRIDGE COLLAPSED
AND EVERBODY DROWNED EXCEPT HIM DESPITE NOT KNOWINING HOW TO SWIM.
HE CLAIMES THAT HE WAS SAVED BECAUSE OF A SPECIAL BRACHA HE GOT FROM THE VIZNIZER REBBE.
AS A CHILD HE AND HIS WIFE - MY GRANDMOTHER USED TO TAKE US TO THE BEACH AT CONNIE ISLAND
IN NEW YORK BUT NEVER CAME CLOSE TO THE WATER BUT WOULD WATCH US FROM THE BOARDWALK
AS HE WAS AFRAID OF THE WATER.
MY PARENTS OR MY GRANDMOTHER WOULD COME IN THE WATER WITH US MY YOUNGEST BROTHER PERRY
