    Biography
    Cesia Fater is the wife of Issachar Fater. He was born in 1912 in Drobin near Plock. Issachar was one of four children born to Samuel Icchak Fater (b. 1888 in Makow Mazowiecki) and Brana nee Fuks (b. 1895, Zakroczym). His father was a deeply religious man but also steeped in European culture. He worked as a cantor and shochet, but also was an accomplished classical musician and composer. Like his father, Issachar received both a religious and musical education. He studied for five years in the teacher's seminary in Warsaw and went on to Mlawa teach Jewish music and lead a choir in the Jewish gymnasium. After the start of World War II, Issachar fled to Baranowicze in the Soviet zone where he worked as a music education inspector. From there he was sent to a labor camp in Siberia After being freed from the camp he became the director of the State Philharmonic Orchestra in Tadjikistan. After the war ended, Issachar returned to Poland and directed the cultural section of the Jewish Central Committee in Warsaw. In 1947 he moved to Paris, and he later moved to Antwerp Belgium and Rio de Janeiro. In 1962 he immigrated to Israel. Both of Issachar's parents perished in the Holocaust. Cantor Samuel Fater perished in 1942 in the Warsaw ghetto. The location and date of Brana Fater's death is unknown.
