Fortunately, I own the book. Thanks for the info. It was self published in 2004. Perhaps you can encourage him to reprint it.

the book about the shanghai students

The book you are looking for is called “From Sheidlitz to safety” written by Rabbi Shimon Goldman. It is actually out of print but during shiva for our father, his daughter Kraindy brought over a copy, which was very kind. You many want to see if the family has any more; it is very fascinating.

I tried looking the book up in google and don’t find anything. Who is the publisher? Can you check the title and perhaps post a link to some mention of the book?

His children and grandchildren are shluchim whose influence has a world-wide impact, even as far as Melbourne and Sydney, Australia.

I remember Reb Mottel was the chior leader and organizer at graduations at the Bedford and Dean yeshivah , many children were selected to sing at the Choir , One of the songs I remember Boruch Elokeinu shboronu Lichvodoh , Vihivdelunu min Hagoyim , etc.
His chior was outstanding

The 9 are his surviving children. 2 passed away young (Shlomo Eliyahu and Chaim Avrohom). Yet two more devastating hardships he lived and fought through, with emunah, bitchaon, and — somehow — still b’simcha.

Children
February 7, 2012 3:04 pm

The article says he had 11 children but the end of the article enumerates 9. Who are the other two?

What a legacy!

Were there any books articles publicly available which were written regarding the Lubavitcher Yeshiva in Shanghai? There are a number of chronicles of the Mir Yeshiva, but I have yet to see a write up of the other Yeshivas which existed there.
