Rose Levin (now Weinberg) is the daughter of Ida and Yossef Levin. She was born in March 1941 in Vilna. Her older sister, Chaya, was born in 1936. Her father was shot by the Germans shortly after the beginning of the German occupation. Rose's mother then placed her with a Lithuanian family named Martul. Rose passed as a relative whose name was Vera Martul. After the death of her foster mother, Josephina Martul, Rose was cared for by the sixteen year-old daughter of the family, Lusia Martul-Budrikiene. Rose remained with Lusia Budrikene until 1957, when an aunt from Canada, Mrs. Friedman, located her and arranged for her emigration to Toronto. In 1993, Yad Vashem recognized Josephine Martul and her daughter Lusia Budrikiene as Righteous Among the Nations.
