Add one more son - Izrael Jacub was not on Mira Kopelman Holocaust testimony on her siblings killed. Perhaps Izrael Jacub survived the Holocaust with Mira?

“ A Report of Nazi Crimes in Ostrowiec (Poland)
Evidence Obtained by Police Supervisor Eitan (Otto) Leaf
Translated by Rina Zana

Interim Report #1:

The following eye witnesses presented in our office:

H. Shaya Vishlitzky (Isaiah Vishlitzky) of #10 Bezalel St., Tel Aviv.
H. Eliezer Langer, of #21 Dizengoff St., Tel Aviv.

General Background:
The city of Ostrowiec Kiltzki is located in the Kielce District in Poland, and before WW2 numbered at 33,000 residents, of them some 12,000 Jews. During the war years, the number of Jewish residents grew, since the German Occupation Authority transferred Jews to Ostrowiec from other places, including even Vienna.

In 1942 the Jewish population in Ostrowiec numbered at an estimated 15,000.

In April of 1942, 23 Jews were shot, and more than 30 were transported to an unknown destination, never to be seen again.

In October of 1942, the first extermination act of the city's Jews was carried out. An estimated 13,000 Jews were sent to Treblinka extermination camp. After this “operation”, the ghetto was established.

In January or February of 1943, the second extermination act was carried out and in March of 1943 the ghetto was destroyed.

In their testimonies, the stated witnesses accuse the following position holders:
6. Michaelsky– Gestapo member in Ostrowiec. Personal details: Approximately 50–years–old; medium height; dark hair; strong build.
In January of 1943, Michaelsky participated in the extermination of Ostrowiec's Jews. Vishlitzky was an eye witness to this.”

(Gisele G.note (Dawid’s second great-niece): Event lead by #6 - possibly included Dawid Baumfeld, his wife, children; only his daughter Mira survived, for unknown reasons. She writes at Yad Vashem on the family’s death testimony that they were shot cold blood in daylight, in front of their house. Possibly at Rynek square. I wonder if she saw the killings of her own family happening).
