"Eliezer Don-Yechiya had been the rabbi in the city of Lutzin for half a century and he was succeeded by his son Benzion Don-Yechiya who has written the commentaries on Israel Zeligman's genealogy. He was also a very famous rabbi and well-educated in secular as well as religious law. He was killed by the Nazis when they entered Lutzin under most horrible circumstances. They having dismembered him piece by piece. The story of this terrible murder has been published in all the world's press, Jewish and non-Jewish, referring to him as a descendant of an old Jewish Portuguese family. I met his son Shavti or Shabbatai in Israel where he is the editor of a Hebrew daily newspaper."
