KISS (Witz) and Dr. Ruth (Siegel)
- The Forward (the wonderful English language
version of the venerable Yiddish newspaper) has a couple
of articles in the current issue that include a
review of a book about Jewish adults who spent their
early years in Nazi Germany. The article mentions that
Dr. Ruth Westheimer's origil name was Carola
Siegel.<br><br>There's also a profile of Gene Simmons, one of the
founders of the demonic-looking rock group KISS, who was
born in Haifa, then attended a yesivah in New York
after his parents divorced. Simmons' original name was
Chaim Witz. He later become Gene Klein. (Maybe after
his mom remarried??)
- I am looking for the surnames ZILBERMAN, KARP and EPSTEIN of
Yarburg, Lithuania and JUDKOWSKY of Serednik, Lithuania.
