"My father,Walter, was named Zev. In Europe, he was called Wolf as well as Villhem when he came to the USA, he called himself Walter. My grandson is named after my father his name is William (Billy) I do not know who my father was named for but he was born in1899. Best regards Stanley" Mar 25, 2014.

Uncle Louis Feiler (Frimet's brother) lived in Detroit. He bought clothes for Walter and his brother Moe Kreinik and for Chaim Sternlicht, told them to shave their beards, get the Detroit papers and walk across the (Friendship?) Bridge on Monday morning with the auto workers. Chaim Sternlicht didn't shave so he was turned back, but later Louis arranged for a boat to take him across. (In Richard Yospin's version, it was Isadore who did the arranging.) DWJ from Stanley Kreinik, Nov 2013.
