This is my elder brother Dovid Genis. The picture was taken in the early 1930s in Rietavas. My elder brother Dovid came into the world in 1916. Having finished Jewish school, my elder brothers started working. First, they helped Father and then they started learning some craft. Only the eldest, Dovid, wasn?t working. He was eager to become a rabbi and went to a yeshivah in Telsiai. My brother was shot in Rainai along with 300 rabbis in the first days of the Nazi occupation.
