Wonderful! ¬†Happy, happy birthday Naftaliūüéā

My family is from Sveksna.  Surnames…Eckowitz, Itzkovitz, Itzikowitz, Leon.
Joseph Itzikowitz, a Rabbi, and his wife were killed in the Holocaust.  His 5 children escaped to France.  His youngest son, Eliyah, went back to look for their parents and was also killed.  I found this out recently.  I cried for them.    Esta Kawaoka
