About Jacob Shchepkovski
Yehiel Shchepkovski and his brother Jacob were sons of a shoemaker from Shrensk.
Before the war, the historian of the village recalled " there was always the sound of singing from his workshop. His love of children was widely known in the town. He was prepared to fight the whole world for his children".
When his sons were shot, it is not surprising theta 'he lost his reason'.
