Lives Lost: Brothers who survived Holocaust die weeks apart

Alexander Feingold stands next to a memorial photo honouring his legacy as a survivor of Auschwitz III, also called Buna or Monowitz, which was run by the company I.G. Farben, in October 2009 in Frankfurt, Germany. The poster shows Feingold as a boy with his two brothers, while B-3005 is the number that was tattooed on his arm when he arrived at Auschwitz. The brothers were Polish-born Holocaust survivors who had a difficult relationship shaped by the trauma of the war and the loss of their beloved mother and younger brother in Treblinka. The pandemic that gripped New York prevented them from saying a final goodbye.
