Landsmen in Israel, Part 2

Baruch Schwartz reports: "On the 71th Anniversary (2012) of the Radzilow massacre, a group of Israeli Radzilowers held the annual commemoration of the Radzilow massacre on Tuesday July 3 alongside the monument to Radzilow at the Holon cemetery. We met with the monument contractor and discussed with him the repairs/corrections that need to be made: a date should be added and there are some spots where the marble is cracked and needs to be fixed. I hope to take care of this over the coming months. Avraham Dotan and I made renewed efforts over the last few months to bring this event to the attention of more Radzilowers. The attendance this year was better than in the past few, and there were a number of others who responded to our invitations and said they would have liked to come but were unable to make it for various reasons."

Baruch is a descendant of Radzilow Gutwert and Porycki (Poritzky) families.
Avraham is a descendant of Radzilow Porycki (Poritzky) and Kowalski families.

Baruch Schwartz reports: "On the 70th Anniversary (2011) of the Radzilow massacre, a small group of Israeli descendants of Radzilowers met for the annual commemoration at the Holon cemetery. Baruch, Aharon and Ruth Schwartz (Gutferd), Avraham Dotan (Poritzky), Avraham Dorogoy (who recorded the event and took the pictures) and Ephraim Kowalsky.
May the sacred memories of our ancestors never cease to inspire us and shape our identities."

Baruch Schwartz reports: "The 66th anniversary (2007) of the Radzilow massacre (July 7, 1941; Hebrew Calendar 12 Tammuz) was marked at the Radzilow monument in the Holon cemetery. The only attendees were my cousin Avraham (Porycki) Dotan of Tel Aviv, Frieda (nee Kowalski) Aharoni, Esther (nee Szwarcberg) Caplin and I, Baruch Schwartz of Efrat. We did manage to get together a minyan to say kaddish."
