Re: Seeking Information; Moshel Family

My maternal grandfather, Mendel Walfish and my uncles Joseph and Lou, were from Podhajce. I have visited both Podhajce and Premishlany in the '90's. I think I visited the ohel of Rabbi Meir. If I can can find the photo and if my memory is correct, I will post it.
There is a memoir about Podhajce during the Holocaust that was written by Dr. Baruch Milch who served as a physician there, "Can Heaven be Void." His brother-in-law was my great uncle, Sheah Walfish. He and his family perished. Dr. Milch writes so lovingly of him and it is something that I have treasured knowing. I have read this book (which I own) and can attest to the impact of the powerful and unforgettable description of what he witnessed and experienced and survived.
I think that some of the surviving Podhajce Milch family emigrated to Australia and Israel.
Good luck in your search.
