Photo Album of

Leah Krelitz-Sherman

These photos were found by Leah's children Max Sherman-Krelitz and Esther Bejar-Sherman after her death. Most were taken by Leah's brother, Moshe Krelitz who remained in Yurburg and was murdered along with all the Jewish residents of Yurburg in the fall of 1941 after the Nazi invasion of Lithuania. Most of the people pictured were among those murdered. The murders were carried out by the Lithuanian collaborators of the Nazis. The last two pictures were taken in Mexico, where Leah immigrated in 1937. She had traveled there to visit her sister, Riva, but was told to not return to Lithuania because the situation was deteriorating. Letters found after her death told of her brothers and sisters fears of what was to befall them.
