Mari L. Paritz Kohnstamm honors Joseph Rosenberg, her great-grandfather, and his family, including his five sons. Mari does not know the specific circumstances surrounding their deaths during the Holocaust, but Joseph, who worked as a teacher, was able to send two sisters to the United States during the early 1900s, thus ensuring the survival of the family name. After the war, Minnie Rosenberg Klott, Mari’s great-aunt, attempted to located surviving family members without success. Mari writes, “The Holocaust was not spoken about to me and I feel remorse for not knowing to ask more questions about my family while my Grandmother and Aunt were alive.” Mari has been able to reconstruct some aspects of her family’s life through old letters (which have been translated and included in the JCC Holocaust Project file) and photographs. Many of the family members had resided in Siauliai, Lithuania, which was a thriving Jewish community before the Holocaust.
