Family of Isak Borenstein
[photo]

The family name Borenstein had been spelled "Borensztajn" in Poland. The Borenstein family consisted of six children: three boys and three girls. After the war Isak went back to the house, which was now occupied by another family. Inside he saw his parent's furniture, and when he asked the occupants to return his family's photographs, they told him that they had all been burned. Isak then went to the Radom city archives and removed the photographs shown here, which had been taken for identity cards. The portrait of Samuel was taken in 1939 when Isak's father was 49. The portraits of his sisters, Hannah and Lola, were taken in 1942.
