Samuel and Jacob with Simon Wiesenthal
Brothers Samuel (left) and Jacob (right) Wiesenthal with their cousin Simon at a 1967 family party in New York. Family elders always said that "All Wiesenthals from Skala are related" and referred to each other as cousins even when they did not know their exact kinship. Although their descendants have yet to figure out exactly how all of the branches of the family fit together, given the extraordinary resemblance between Samuel and Simon, they are quite certain the relationship exists.
