Shimon Alperovitch, z”l, 1928-2014


Shimon Alperovitch z''l

I am sad to pass on the news that one of our narrators passed away today. Shimon Alperovitch (Simonas Alperavičius), long-time president of the Jewish Community in Vilnius, Lithuania,  had a strong, gentle presence when I interviewed him in August, 2012.

Watch the full interview, in Yiddish, here.

May his memory be for a blessing,

Christa
