My grandmother Rosa Weisberg nee Brucha Horowicz grew up in Radom. She always spoke of an orphan girl (who was older than her) her parents took in for a while after the Przytyk pogrom in 1936 named Perele or Perla. Probably due to the proximity of the ongoing trial in Radom.
The only orphans I know of from the progrom were the Minkowski's. The younger ones were boys and the older 2 girls eventually moved to Israel, but I couldn't find their names anywhere to confirm if it was one of them. Does anyone know the names of the 2 older Minkowski daughters? or what happened to them? did they make it to Israel?
