About Channah Taub

In 1936, Leah Meir, daughter of Rabbi Hanoch Heinoch Meir of Karecska, married her cousin Rabbi Moshe Teitelbaum, where Moshe held the position of Rosh Yeshiva (dean). In 1939, he became the rabbi of Zenta, Yugoslavia (now Serbia).

In late spring 1944, the Hungarian government, assisted by Nazi forces led by Adolf Eichmann, began deporting Jews en-masse. Rabbi Moshe and his wife were sent to Auschwitz, where Leah and their three children died.

Moshe was then transferred to Traglitz and after that to Theresienstadt, where he was liberated in 1945.
