Photograph | Photograph Number: 39673

The wedding of Bat-Sheva Rozowski and Rabbi David Zalmanovitz from Ilya.

Bat-Sheva was the daughter of Rabbi Szymen Rozowski. This was the last wedding celebration in which the entire shtetl participated, as in pre-World War I days. Sitting next to Bat-Sheva in the shulhoyf is her mother, Rebbetzin Miriam; next to the groom is his mother, Dvorah. Standing behind them are Bat-Sheva's brother's wife and David's sisters. In the front row are their little nephews and nieces. They were all murdered during the Holocaust, the Rozowski family in the September 1941 massacre, Bat-Sheva, David, and their three children in Treblinka.
