Survivors of Sokolow Podlaski pose around a makeshift tombstone during a memorial service for the Holocaust victims of the town.

Shoshana Feldman (sister of Mendel) is among those pictured. She immigrated to Palestine before the war is part of the group.

Also pictured is Srul Szczerb, seen holding the plaque. His sister, Malka (Szczerb) Goldschmidt is standing to his right (wearing a scarf and glasses). The two survived the war in Russia and then immigrated to Israel afterwards. Their younger sister, Cywia (Szczerb) Elster, had been hiding in the farms around the town of Sokolow and was turned in to the Germans by a farmer named Oziemblo six months before the end of the war. The Germans brought her into the town and then shot her. Cywia's children, Irene and Aaron Elster survived.
