Adolf Paneth was my paternal grandfather. He was born in Tarcal. He moved to a town called Papa because he got a job as a shochet (kosher butcher) and melamed (teacher of Jewish primary school). He married a local girl, who was considered the most beautiful girl of the town, and had four children. He was a very religious man. One of their daughters married a Hasid and moved to Beregszasz. They had four children, of whom one married a gentile. The family disowned her, sat shiva (went through the traditional rites for mourning a death) and never knew her again. She was the only one to survive the Holocaust. My grandfather was very religious. My grandmother received widow's benefit from the community after my grandfather's death. The leadership of the Orthodox Community of Papa sent a letter to my grandmother when my grandfather died. In it they expressed their appreciation of his activity as a teacher of religion in the community school for forty years.
