Harold Rieger's Timeline

December 17, 1917
Age 23

From Charna Rieger's book [page 21]:

My loving son Yechiel, a well learned, personable young man, was taken into the army and there; he became sick and was in an army hospital for a ten week period, then they discharged him and sent him home. We called the most prominent doctors, spared no expense with the hope that his health would be restored.

To my great sorrow and pain, unfortunately, nothing helped. We could not save him, and Hanukkah 1917, he was dead. His beloved father, my husband, could not overcome the pain and two days later he also departed from this world.
