|The Schneerson family initially survived the massacre of the
Kurenitzer Jews on 9 Sep 1942, since the local residents needed a
pharmacist. At that point, they were the only Jews in Kurenets (Kurenitz)
who were not in hiding, and they helped many Jews and partisans. They
knew that soon they would be killed, and they had planned to run away.
But the partisans asked them to stay a little longer. As a result,
with the exception of one son, they were all killed. Emma, shown
above, emigrated to Israel (then Palestine), where she married Zalman
Zivony. She and Zalman founded one of the first pharmacies in Tel
Aviv, thanks to her experience at the Schneerson Pharmacy of Kurenets.
