Saul SZAPIRO born Bialystok 1909, lived in Belgium until 1948 , died Cape
Town 1980.
Son of Zvi Hirsh Leib SZAPIRO (born Bialystok 1878 died Holocaust) and
Mirjam SHAPIRA (b. Pinsk 1881 d. Holocaust.

Saul left in his papers a guidebook to Bialystok written in Esperanto. In
the guide appears the name of Jakub SZAPIRO, who may have written the book.
We are trying to determine whether Jakub was related to Saul and how.
So far we have found the following details about Jakub SZAPIRO:
Born and lived in Bialystok 1897-1941, journalist,
he lived in Lipowa Street, 33 in Bialystok.
He had a sister Betty SZAPIRO -RASZKIN who survived together with her
daughter Felicja RASZKIN-NOWAK.
The only indication that he was a relative is that Saul SZAPIRO kept the
guide all the years.
Will be grateful if any of this forum can add information about Jakub and
family or connect us to his sister's family.
