Brid Holocaust

Some families were deported by the Hungarians to Poland in 1941. Yaakov Ekstein's daughter-in-law, Sura Rivka, daughter of Rabbi Avrum Dov KLEINBARD (Shochet from Rakoshin) and her two children were deported to Kamienets-Podolski (as releated by Zalmen STRULOVIC, USA). In addition, Chana, the daughter of Avrohom Yaakov KATZ, along with her husband Yitschok Sholom ADLER, and their children, were deported with the other Jews in 1944.

Yitschok Shulem ADLER fell ill and had to go to hospital. In the meantime, the ghetto was liquidated and Suri ADLER, then 12 years old, hid under the bed when the family was arrested and forced to march to the woods where they were shot. With heavenly asistance, Suri ADLER managed to walk by foot to the Hungarian border, dressed as a peasent girl, eventually crossing over the border and arriving in Szvalyva. At first, she was arrested, but with help of her cousin Yosef SPIEGEL she was freed and able to return to Brid. There she lived with her grandfather. All the village people came to hear her stories. (as releated by Suri GOLDSTEIN-ADLER, Israel)

Yosef Zvi WEISZ and his brother Yisroel Volf WEISZ, children of Mordchai WEISZ, from Brid, hid in the barn of one of their fathers business friends, thus they managed to skip being deported.

The day after Passover 5704 (16 April 1944), the general roundup of all Brid's Jews began. They were all taken to the ghetto, where they cowered for a month or so and then were transported to Auschwitz.
