    Biography
    Asher Zelig (Sol Z) Slomowitz (the father of Rachel Steiner) was born on May 8, 1917 in Vulchovce (Vilkowitz), Czechoslovakia. His family was affiliated with the Vishnitzer Hasidim. His father Moshe died as a result of wounds he sustained in World War I fighting for the Austro-Hungarian Empire. His mother Feige was left a widow and raised four children: Chaya Rachel, Leah, Asher Zelig and Devorah. They were deported to Auschwitz in May 1944. His mother and two older sisters and their families were killed immediately. He and his younger sister survived. Devorah was trapped after the war behind the Iron Curtain, and they only reunited in 1971. Chaya Rachel perished with her six-year-old son Zelig and four-year-old daughter. Leah, who had married to Yisroel Levinger, perished with her two-year-old son Moshe and infant daughter Edit. After the war Asher Zelig went to the Gabersee displaced person's camp where he met Sara (Aren, later Shirley) Rosenfeld.

    She was the daughter of Marton (b. 6/17/1882) and Golda (nee Katz) Rosenfeld (b. 04/20/1880). She was born in Tocovo, in the Transcarpathia in 1920. Germany seized control in March 1944 of the region and established a ghetto in Tacovo the following in month. In May they deported the Jews to Auschwitz. Sara's parents both perished as did her 26 year-old sister-in-law, Chaye Rosenfeld and her three young children, Yitzy (age 6), Chaje (age 4) and Mojshe (age 2). Asher Zelig and Shirley both immigrated to the United States where they married.
