Rabbi Szymen Rozowski

Rabbi Szymen Rozowski (1874-1941) was an ardent religious Zionist leader, a member of the Mizrahi movement, and the beloved last rabbi of Eisiskes. During the September 1941 massacre, Rabbi Rozowski was kept alive on the edge of the mass graves so that he would witness the murder of each member of his community. After the murder of the last person, the rabbi was buried alive.
