The Zacharia Marcus Family

By Esther (Herschman) Rechtschafner

Esther Rechtschafner  email:

My maternal grandfather Zacharia Marcus was born in Sveksna. He told much about the physical beauty of this place and about the wonderful organization of the Jewish community there. One of his younger sisters, Janie, remembered that she feared the local population.

For more information about our family, please see my article My Mother's Family (PDF - 651 KB) and its Appendix 5 - Photographs (PDF - 1.22 MB).
