    The Rebbe left his wife and 8 children in Europe. When the war broke out, he worked hard to save them and therefore printed the Noam Elimelach to use to proceeds of its sales to rescue his family. Unfortunately he was unsuccessful. The Rebbe died in Elul 1944.

    One son survived and is buried in the same section, Reb Shmuel Aharon.

    יזכרם אלקים לטובה

    אשתו מרת שרה (לבית קליינער)
    ובניו ובנותיו

    השם ינקום נקמת דם עבדיך השפוך
