Yitzhak and Sara Reiber and their children Ben Zion, Bilha and Yehezkel lived in the city of Ludmir. After the Germans invaded, Yitzhak was sent to forced labor as a painter in the local dairy. One day, Jan Lisieczynski, the Polish manager of the dairy, asked Yitzhak to whitewash his home. Yitzhak agreed, but instead of a fee, he requested a small amount of milk and cheese as payment. Jan and Julia’s two granddaughters arrived at the Reiber’s home each day with two liters of milk and half a kilo of cheese. Even after all the Jews had been relocated to the ghetto, the girls continued to arrive with a supply of food.
