Dear Mr: Joseph Rosin.
I would like to congratulate you for the effort you are making
recover information about Jews in Europe.
My name is Abe Becker, and I am a great-grandchild of Abe
(Beker) who was a profesor at the Yavneh school in Merkine. (one of
the pictures). His son, Max Becker ,my grandfather left Merkine
around the year 1925 and came to Mexico as many others, together with
Chaya Kabachnik my grandmother.
My father, Isaac Becker was born in Mexico, so I am already
second generation in México with my three brothers. Another
part of the family, a son of Abe Becker named Chaim Velbl, went to
Russia and then to Israel and had a son with the same name Abe
Becker. The rest of the Abe Becker family were killed by the Nazis as
it is described in the list.
Today, there is already a third generation bornd in Mexico,
grandchildren. My grandmother is still alive and lives in Miami Fla.

I´ll be glad to help you. Thanks again, for such an important
