Misha Wajsman was remembered this week as a Holocaust survivor who dedicated himself to perpetuating memory and improving the lives of others.

Wajsman, who died in the hospital this week at age 91, was born to a prominent family in the city of Lutsk, then part of Poland, now in western Ukraine.

His father, Pinchas, was a major sugar beet producer and sent Misha to college in Warsaw. He was studying pre-law there when the Germans invaded Poland in September 1939.
