Josef Gottesfeld, his wife Dora, cousin Moshe Efraim Wiesenthal and friend

Return to "Faces In Skala"

From left to right: JOSEF LEIB GOTTESFELD (born 1906; son of Esther Wiesenthal and Shimshon Gottesfeld), his wife DORA, his cousin MOSHE EFRAIM WIESENTHAL (son of Zechariyah and Brucha Wiesenthal), and an unidentified friend, ca. 1930. Josef was a member of the Socialist Bund. He and Dora died in the Holocaust. In the 1920s, "Moishe Brucha" -- as he was known, to distinguish him from the many other Moishes in Skala -- was in charge of Skala's library and was active in the drama society.
