    Nitra was the last yeshiva to fall into the claws of the Nazis. The yeshiva was in full operation until the Fall of 1944.

    I’m a historian studying child Holocaust survivors and how the religious community helped them after the war. I’m looking to interview people who were at the Yeshiva Farm Settlement right after WWII.

    Maybe try Rabbi Menashe Mayer, he was born in Auschwitz (there’s a famous story about that), and his father Rabbi Yitzchak Zev was a mashgiach in Nitra Yeshiva.

    A question was asked about the kevurah of Michoel Dov (or Ber) Weissmandl, the great tzadik of Hatzalah during the churban, and the son-in-law of rav Ungar, Nitra Rav in Europe who died during the war.

    He was niftar iirc in 1957 and is buried in the plot of Kahal Adas Yereim (Viener Shul) in Beth Israel cemetery in Woodridge NJ in the front row right next to Yonasan Steiff, dayan in Budapest and Rav of Kahal Adas Yereim from after WWII until, iirc, 1958 when he was niftar
