kov-os-#80:

My grandparents are the couple seated in the middle. We have a cousin who is still alive and she is in this picture. She is the one who confirmed that the photo was taken in the Rav’s house (Shapiro Kahana), which my father thought he remembered his mother mentioning but wasn’t sure. This cousin also mentioned that some of the Rav’s sons are in this picture as well. Do you know perhaps which sons would still have been in Kovno in December of 1939, when this picture was taken?
. My grandmother’s family goes back many generations therein Kaunas (Markus and Shapiro families but no relation to the Rav as far as I know). My great grandfather, Yechezkel Gershon, was a wagon driver who would drive all the rabbanim and roshei yeshiva around. He was called “Chatskel the Langer.” In fact, my uncle just told us a story. My great aunt was living in Boston before the war and the Rav came to the US to fundraise. She went to the event, even though no women were allowed in. She told the man at the door to tell the Rav that Chatskel the Langer’s daughter was here and the Rav came outside to greet her!
