My father in law, Max Rosenthal, (allow hashalom) was born in Zinkov,
Ukrainia. He claimed that his uncle Rabbi Naftali Rosenthal somehow wound up
in Riga and had at least one son who was also a Rabbi. I once heard a rumor
that they were active in the Resistance in the ghetto during the Holocaust.
Can anybody out there in cyberspace tell me any more? Does the story sound

Dear John Patrick,

I can tell you exactly where this town Bielefeld in Germaqny is, because
I happen to live in it. It is situated in the state of
Northrhine-Westphalia on the railwayline line between Hannover and
Duesseldorf/Cologne.

I will try to pass your question on to the city
archives, but for that it would be useful to be sure that Mathilda
Noll's name has not changed between 1864 and 1931 through a marriage.
With kind regards
