THE EINSIEDLER FAMILY
Left to right: Joseph Joel, Estera, Miriam, David and Pearl
This was the last
photograph taken of the family together before David left for Italy. He
would never see his family again.
Though he could find no documentation of the death of his mother and
David did learn that his father had been a prisoner at Auschwitz and
died in Austria in 1905.
David served in the U.S. Army for four years and after he was
discharged, studied at UCLA, graduating in 1948.
That same year he married Rose Lerner, who had survived the Shoah. They
had three children and five grandchildren.
He was one of the founders of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los
Angeles and is still
very interested in genealogical research, especially that which is
associated with rabbinic history.
