For several years I have been studying the history of the Frenkel family from Rovno.
From childhood I knew that my dad, Frenkel Tsal (Betsalel) Bentsionovich was born in 1910 and lived in the city of Rivne before the war. At the beginning of the war, he was drafted into the army. His parents died during the war. Dad told me many times that my grandmother's name was Leia, grandfather was Bentsion, and that my brother and I were named after them.
In New York, at the Beth David Elmont Cemetery, Section E, Block 4, there is a memorial to the Jews killed in Rovno. It was built in 1954 http://www.museumoffamilyhistory.com/hm-rovno-bd.htm.
THIS MONUMENT WAS ERECTED BY THE FIRST ROVNER SICK AND BENEVOLENT SOCIETY WITH THE HELP ROVNER LANDSLEIT IN 1954.
The monument bears the name and surname of my grandmother Lea Frenkel.
Recently I found out my grandmother's maiden name - Saginur.
I think one of her relatives, brother or sister of my grandmother, lived in New York and brought her name to the monument.
I've posted aphoto of monument anf photo of my grandmother on ViewMate at the following address ...
