    Biography
    Yocheved (Jochweta) Fryd (later Flumenker) is the daughter of Yehoshua Avram (b. 1891) Fryd and Hannah Ziegelzyper (b. 1891). She was born on May 12, 1919 in Lublin where her father was a leather dealer. Her younger sister Regina (Rivka) was born in 1926. Yocheved attended the Humanistic School in Lublin, amd she and her sister both were active in Hanoar Hatzioni. In 1940 Yocheved and her father left Lublin for Lvov seeking a safe haven. They remained there for a short period of time and returned to be with the rest of the family. Her mother and sister were already in the ghetto and they joined them for a period. Yocheved escaped with her father to live with peasants in the surrounding area who had bought raw material from her father and who knew him well. They managed to live in two places from 1942-144. They had thought that Yocheved's mother and sister would be better off in the ghetto rather than escaping with them. Yocheved's mother and sister were living with an uncle, David Davidson, who was a member of the Judenrat. They were all deported to Belzec in the first Aktsia on March 17, 1942. After the war Yocheved and her father left for Lodz where they rented an apartment and tried to get some rest. However, after the pogrom of Kielce they realized they did not want to remain in Poland and left for Germany where they went to the DP camp in Stuttgart. Yocheved worked in offices of the the Joint and the Jewish Agency. There she met Zvi Flumenker, a survivor from Warsaw, and they wed on September 30, 1948. They later immigrated to Israel.

    Zvi Flumenker was the son of Chaim Flumenker (b. 1878 in Kozienice) and Chaya Sara nee Drezner (b. 1882 in Radom). Chaim worked as a mechanic. Both of his parents perished in the Warsaw ghetto in 1943. Zvi also had several siblings who also perished in the ghetto the same year - Miriam Mirel (b. 1910) and her husband Iccak Mirel, Josef (b. 1911) and married to Devora Dreszner, Abram (b. 1915), and Jakob (b. 1919).
