Description
   Written to his brother at the tail end of the Holocaust, the writer gives his family's biography and his life history, revealing many historical notes of Hungarian Jewry. He expresses a deep concern for being able to obtain a "Jewish burial" for himself. As the Al-mighty would have it - he survived the Holocaust, immigrated to the US where he established a congregation, and rebuild his family. When he passed on several years ago, his descendants numbered in the dozens.
