About Yechezkel Lewis

Rabbi Yechezkel Lewin was editor in chief of the Jewish weekly newspaper "Opinja", and Rabbi of the Reform Synagogue in Lvov.

He was seized by Ukranian militiamen at the threshold of his house and thrown into prison. Still in his Rabbinical clothes he was pushed and beaten with rifle butts of German soldiers, before being shot in the prison courtyard.

He died on 30 June 1941.
