mail of WCT 11/12/1998:

Frieda Segal Turkel 's family was quite extensive. Frieda's mother was buried in the Pod cemetery which George visited in 1936. This lady wrote exquisite German and George remembers reading an old letter from his maternal grandmother to her sons (his uncles) Jacques and William Segal which was in "the nicest, beautiful German I have ever read." Besides these brothers Frieda had other siblings. A sister, named Clara Lehrer had immigrated to Palestina; she had a daughter named Marli Lehrer whose picture is the one taken in Haifa in 1955/60. Shortly thereafter, Marli Lehrer's son then about 17 or 18 years old and in the Israeli Army was killed in a military action. Another uncle (named Irving?) also immigrated to Palestina from Vienna; this was 1922.
