BAYT rabbi’s mother tells tale of the Kindertransport

Posted on December 20, 2011

Frieda Korobkin can’t recall the last words her father spoke before she and her siblings boarded the Kindertransport but she does remember the Nazis attacking him on the way. Her father was Rabbi Nissan Stolzberg and Nazi soldiers had cut off his beard in front of his 4 young children as he walked them to the train station in Vienna in 1938. Frieda Korobkin spoke to about 250 people Sunday at Beth Avraham Yoseph Synagogue of Toronto, where her son Daniel Korobkin is senior rabbi.
