THE LEW DOUBLE WEDDING
Sejny, Poland
10 Nov 1922
 

This photograph was taken at the wedding of brothers Shmuel and Josef Lew (pronounced 'Lev') to two sisters, Gitel and Fruma Fridman in 1922.
 
Shmuel and Gitel immigrated to Palestine in 1933. Two of their three children were born in Sejny. Josef and Fruma remained in Sejny and perished in the Holocaust along with their children (c.f). Nisan Lew and his wife and children also perished. Rifka Borovicz and her husband Meir and the little girl Chana also went to Palestine. Leizer Brzozek was Sora Lew's brother and Chaim Rosen was her nephew. They did not live in Sejny.

Moshe Leib Lew moved his family to Sejny sometime between 1889 and 1893.  He was in the timber trade.  His house was on the eastern side of the market square.
 

 

Josef and Fruma Lew remained in Sejny and perished in the Holocaust along with their children, named Yizhak and Elia. Here they appear in a 1935 photograph taken in Sejny.
