These pictures and the letter below represent the only known records of our Kletsker ancestors, Morduch Kirzner and his family.

The letter, sent about two weeks before the start of World War II, is the last we heard of them.

Morduch Kirzner was my great-uncle.

Jewish Colonization Association

Paris, 17 August 1939

Mr. J. Kirzner


Dear Sir:

In response to your letter, we would like to inform you that the candidacy of your brother, Morduch Kirzner, has been accepted and the formalities for obtaining an entry permit for Argentina are in progress.

The duration of the formalities does not, unfortunately, depend on us; we can not therefore indicate to you how much time exactly your brother will wait for his departure.

Sincerely yours,
