THE EINSIEDLER FAMILY
Drohobycz, Ukraine
early 1936

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 sisters,
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.
