  1. The city of Brest, which was referred to in the article, is better know to the yeshiva world as “Brisk”, the home to the famous, illustrious Soloveitchik family.

I’ve read quite a bit about this story these past couple of weeks,and I’ve yet to see a single statement from the Brisker Rabbonim or their spokesmen stateing their horror or sadness about this find.Do they just not care about the fate of their townspeople who were left behind to perish like this because they were not priveleged members of the Solovaitchik royal family ? Why the deafening silence ? Or am I missing something ?
