The Jewish cemetery in Bielsko-Biala, in Silesia. At the beginning of the 19th century there were two brothers whose father sent them away from home to try their luck. One went East and settled in Transylvania and the other went West and settled in Austria. The Eastern branch of the family became extremely religious, in fact Hassidic. These are the tombs of some of the members of that branch. A number of people in this branch of the family converted in the 1930s and they were the only ones to survive the Holocaust.
