Reizin and Peker Family

Genia Reizin and Morduch Peker and their families lived in Mir. They both applied for Palestine Immigrant Certificates and Polish passports and went to Palestine seperately. Genia went to Palestine around 1931 and Morduch, sometime later. They were married around 1936-7, according to their son Chaim, who lives in Israel. Sasha Galver provided the photos and documents.

Translation of Hebrew text
Her ways were ways of truth and faith/belief
Fear of heaven and trust [in God] were constantly on her tongue
Her gentle/fine/noble/gracious soul loved good and kindness
Happy with her lot and rich with everything
She was affable to all people
The honorable woman, the modest and the
esteemed Mrs.
Daughter of the  Rav Rabbi Mordechai
6th of Adar 5693*
May her soul be bound up in the bond of (eternal) life

Genia Reizin Peker

Palestine Immigrant Certificate
Palestine Immigrant Certificate for Morduch Peker, probably issued by the Palestine Office in Warsaw.
Genia Reizin Palestine Immigrant Certificate (1931?)
Peker Polish Passport
Cover of Polish Passport
Gienia Peker
Passport of Gienia Rejzin, who married Morduch Peker. She was born in 1909.
She was single, of medium build, had blond hair and grey eyes.
It looks like the name of the town where she was born is m. Jeremicze, which was 9.7 miles NW of Mir.

Passport for Morduch Peker who was born 1897. He had brown hair and grey eyes, and was a baker. His descendents said that Morduch lived in Mir, but he was born in a small town near Mir which is called Z'etel. The town listed as birthplace on the passport seems to be m. Brzesc (click to see enlargement), but there is not town in the area with that name, according to ShtetlSeeker.

The document seems to have been issued in 1925 to go to Palestine.
