I have just published, through Urim Publishers, a 270 page book
about Rabbi Boruch Milikowsky, son of Shmuel Milikowsky and Malke Dickenstein, who
was born and raised in Vishnevo. The Book is called, "They called him Rebbe: The
Life and Good Works of Rabbi Boruch Milikowsky."
The first sixty pages are about his life in Europe -- his childhood
in Vishnevo, his experiences in the yeshivot of Radin, Baranovitz and the
Mir, the arrival in Vishnevo of the Russians, the arrival of the Nazis, and
finally, his escape, with the Mir Yeshiva to Shanghai, China.
The remaining 200 pages are about his success as an educator of
American students over the course of a forty year career in the Talmudical
Academy of Baltimore, Maryland.
Some of my source material necessarily came from this and other
relevant Internet sites, but some of it came from long interviews with members
of Rabbi Milikowsky's family, including Mrs. Minna Podeberesky, wife of Noah and
sister of Rabbi Milikowsky.
The book is for sale already in the Pomerantz bookstore in
Jerusalem. In a few weeks it will be reaching the shores (and stores) of the United
States and other English speaking countries, wherever "Urim" books are sold.

|On December 16 2013 my mother Mina (Milikowsky) Podberesky passed away at the age of 92. She was likely the last living survivor of the Nazi liquidation of the Vishnevo ghetto in 1942.
From: Esther Epstein <estherwasser@.com>
My mother (Libby Wasser, holding a book) was finally able to share her story with me at length a few years before she died. Her story was heart wrenching, and even now it is hard for me to share her story. I noticed that on your Krewo website, picture 26 mentions Gershon Milikovsky and his daughter Roza ( or Raizala) and her brother Noah. My mother said that Gershon and Judah Milikovsky were uncles and business partners with her father, Chaim Yehudah, and Roza was her cousin and best friend. She described how Noah perished. Could you possibly put me in touch with the person who wrote the caption to this picture? Thank you for any help you could provide.
|Elisha Netanyahu, December 21, 1912 – April 3, 1986) was an Israeli mathematician specializing in complex analysis. Over the course of his work at the Technion he was the Dean of the Faculty of Sciences and established the separate Department of Mathematics. Historian Benzion Netanyahu was his brother and Benjamin Netanyahu, current Prime Minister of Israel was his nephew.
Netanyahu was born in Warsaw, Poland, to the writer and Zionist activist Nathan Mileikowsky. He was the third of nine children (most immigrated to the U.S and kept the last name Mileikowsky). In 1920 the family made aliyah to the Land of Israel. The family eventually settled in Jerusalem and adopted Hebrew name Netanyahu.
Netanyahu went to the Reali School in Haifa, from which he graduated in 1930. He later returned to Reali in 1935 to teach mathematics there. He studied at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, from which he received his BS, MA and PhD (1942). His advisors were Michael Fekete and Binyamin Amirà. After the graduation he joined the British Army as a volunteer, serving in Egypt and then in Italy as an officer in a unit of the Royal Engineering Corps. He specialized in preparation of maps, which he continued to do during Israel's War of Independence in 1948.
After he was demobilized in 1946, he became a lecturer at the Technion. He rose to a professor in 1958, and later became the head of the Mathematics Section, then as Dean of the Faculty of Sciences. His administrative efforts also played an important role towards establishment of the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.
He had long term visits at Stanford University (1953–54), NYU (1961), the University of New Mexico (1969), the University of Maryland, College Park (1973), and ETH Zürich (1979). In 1980, Netanyahu retired from the Technion and moved to Jerusalem, where he died of cancer in 1986.
Throughout his long career, Netanyahu collaborated with Paul Erd?s, Charles Loewner and other leading mathematicians, continuing and expanding the analytical traditions at the Technion.
In 1949 Netanyahu married Shoshana Shenburg, his former student at the Reali, who later became the second female justice at the Israel Supreme Court. They had two children: Nathan (b. 1951), a professor of computer science at Bar-Ilan University, and Dan (b. 1954), an information systems auditor.
