1. Miriam Borenshtein


Her children Faiga, 3. Tova Sarah, 4. Yehezkel Isser, 5. Rivka, 6. Mendel.

Miriam Borenshtein was the wife of Shlomo Zalman Borenshtein, who is in Israel. She suffered for years, hoping to come to Eretz Israel with the children and reunite the whole family. Mendel Borenshtein was killed as a partisan, fighting the German and Lithuanian murders, in the Vilna district. See the essay in the section on “Szrensk Heroes.”

Mendel Borenshtein was the last of Abba Kovner's group to leave the Vilna Ghetto, and fell in battle against Polish and Lithuanian White Guards. All honor to his memory.

   1. Akiva Borenshtein, head of the family. 
   Feiga Borenshtein (Granat) his wife.
   Gitel Rashe, their daughter.

The son of Miriam and Shlomo Zalman Borenshtein, a son-in-law of Moshe Granat. He lived a quiet life, and was a serious and hard-working person who always found time to study and read books. His wife Feiga was a quiet, calm creature, “as quiet as a dove” as they say in Yiddish, who never complained but worked and was always satisfied, always ready to help others and look after the poor people she know. She used to look after them and help them without any theories or philosophy. To her one can apply the saying, “All the honor of the Princess is turned inward.”

Akiva died in Auschwitz of starvation, simply going out like a light.
