Celebrating Birth of 100th Great-Grandchild: “This is our response to Hitler”

Michael (92) and Marion (90) Mittwoch fled Germany as teenagers when Hitler rose to power, and were among the founders of Kibbutz Lavi.

This month they celebrated the birth of their 100th great-grandchild, Dagan Raz (in the center of the photo below, along with proud great-grandparents, father, and grandfather).

Michael Mittwoch reflected with emotion, “This is our response to Hitler, yemach shmo. He attempted to wipe us out and here we have brought our 100th great-grandchild into the covenant of Avraham Avinu!”

Mazal tov!

**Interesting side point…these are the parents of Rabbanit Hadassah Frumin of Tekoa.

  3. chana jenny,
    i am so glad you posted this! i read it on some other jewish news site and immediately thought it would be perfect for your blog…

    living well is the best revenge..

  4. Best revenge, this type of nekama is for sure allowed and encouraged!

  5. I want to know so much more!!

  6. So sweet! I wonder how many children they had! May we also have this kind of revenge.

  7. I agree with YL – This IS incredible! How it floods our souls with life and joy to see this dear family! What an incredible triumph over murderous evil!
    May the Giver-of-Life give them 100 more!

  8. Mazel Tov and Simi Tov!

  9. This is truly Yiddishe nachas. May they each live to 120 in good health and be blessed with unlimited simchas.

    Mazel tov and Многя літа!

  12. Mazel tov to your whole family. God has blessed all of you. What a miracle to have survived and brought so many new lives into the world. Wonderful response to the horrors of Hitler. May this new baby live a very long and healthy life, full of joy.

  13. May God continue to bless your beautiful family for many more generations. Shalom.

  14. Are there no Israeli or Jewish orphans? All I see here is the contribution to an exploding population that cannot be sustained for much longer.

    The reasoning behind this is utterly stupid.

  15. Mazel Tov! May HaShem abundantly bless y’all!
