The story hidden behind

the family

From 1926 the tenement at 8 Ciepła in Białystok was own by Chackiel Bekker. Among the residents of the building was Ester-Golda Rozental, Israel Rozental and Lidia Rozental. Lidia Rozental – a daughter of Berta and Israel was born on July 18th 1928 in Białystok. She was an engineer by profession. On June 20th 1941 she was taken to Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, to the city of Barnauł (250 km south of Novosibirsk) in Altai Krai. She apparently survived and returned to Białystok, where she registered herself on July 7th 1946. This is last of what is known about her.
