My mother's second sister Frieda, born in 1877 , lived with her husband Meishe Markson in a small town on the North of Lithuania Pilviskei. Frida's husband was a rich merchant. She sold poultry and horses to England and Germany. Frieda had many children: Channa, Yudel, Leiba and Leya. When the Soviets came to power, the whole family of Marksons was exiled in Siberia [Deportations from the Baltics]. Leiba, who was out of town, and little Leya, who was sheltered by the neighbors, stayed. The rest family members survived in Siberia and left for Israel in 1956 from Altai. Meishe died in Israel shortly after his arrival. He fell ill in Siberia. Frieda passed away shortly after him. Frida's daughter Channa is currently living in Jerusalem, Israel. She got married with Friedman.
