Re: Looking for Arsonist’s Family #usa

Yes, to all of the above. In addition to Fried's book, I looked at the information about him in Ron Aron's The Jews of Sing Sing and Joselit's Our Gang. What I've already discovered about him is more extensive than these three works. In addition I've read the newspaper articles about him that cover a 3 year period. So, I need to turn to primary sources now, not secondary ones. And, yes, I agree that the best explanation is that the family immediately changed their name. However, I suspect the mother and daughters would have still been living together (perhaps in NJ which is where the home was) even if it was under a different name.
