Chaskiel and Chaya Krongold seated with Nachman, Baruch, and Guta standing behind them
Chaskiel and Jonasz’s parents, Szmula and Bracha Perla Krongold had many other children including: Baruch Yisrael, Hitza Chaya, Rachel, Pryva Shandla, Sura Roize, Rivka, Marmita and Golda.
Chaskiel and his wife Chaya were the parents of Nachman, Baruch, Hershle, Feiga, Shmuel (who died before the Holocaust), Chana and Guta. They lived in a beautiful villa. Chaskiel and Chaya, and several of their children, died during the Holocaust.
Feiga survived the war by hiding and living with Aryan papers. Sadly, she was killed, along with four others, in a shooting in an apartment (belonging to Pinhas Lederman) on Starakunowski Street in Ostrowiec on March 12, 1945. The Polish A.K. (Armja Krajowa) organized the murderous attack that brutally killed five people, and badly wounded several others.
Guta also survived the war and by a miracle, Guta’s daughter Ruth, who was placed in a Polish home, also survived.
Jonasz Krongold’s children left Poland before the Holocaust. His daughter, Hela moved to Palestine. His son Moniek (Samuel Morris) and daughter Zysla moved to Canada. Zysla’s grandaughter Rosalie Abella became a supreme court judge.
Sura Roize Krongold married Baruch Rubinstein. Their great grandson Rafael Goldchain is a photographer and artist and shares much of his family history in his work.
