Moshe Yarkoni - Zilonka #poland #israel


JOSEPH GODELNIK
 

Moshe, the son of Brina and Jacob, was born in the town of kolo in Poland in 1909.

During World War II, he fled his city to Bialystok and from there he deported by the Russians to Siberia. In the midst of World War II, in 1942, Moshe managed to immigrate to Israel, apparently with the help of Anders' army, and settled in Tel Aviv.

In 1946 he married Shoshana, daughter of Arieh and Esther Zurendorf, also from the town of Kolo. On April 12, 1948, their son Arieh (my good friend) was born.

The Egyptian bombing on Friday, July 13, 1948, was one of the deadliest of the Egyptian bombings of Tel Aviv during the War of Independence. They managed to drop many large bombs on the town's houses, killing about twenty people, including Moshe, who was hit as he passed by on Sheinkin Street.
Moshe, who was 39 at the time of his death, left a wife and a three-month-old baby. He was laid to rest in the Nahalat Yitzhak cemetery, Area 65, Block 2, line 8. Moshe is immortalized in a monument on Mount Herzl in Table No. 8.
Aryeh's mother married in the early 50s of the last century to Shmuel Friend (Parent) who adopted Aryeh as a son (we did not find official documents but he got his name).
We will be happy for any help in locating details related to Moshe Yarkoni's past, as well as other details and family members, if any.
Thanks in advance
