    Ben-Zev is an addition and name-change after the war, the Rav is listed in several Student list from the Mir Yeshiva in Shanghai (as mentioned on the Matzieve)

    There is a Rabbi in Queens named Rabbi Nehemia Ben-Zev, perhaps he is related.

    I was curious about this because I share a last name. I had some research done but cannot link him to our family name. Do you know of any living relatives?
