    The article says they were leaving Basel Switzerland, but the caption of the photo says they were coming from The Hague, Netherlands. Please clarify.

    After WWII they went from Basel to The Hague. Later (1951/52) they went to Toronto

    Interesting story – I guess it runs in the family, because when one of Rabbi Schochet’s nephews was a young boy and his family visited the Rebbe (in about 5745 or 6), the boy was determined that he would greet the Rebbe. His family was standing and waiting as the Rebbe exited His Room to go to mincha, and the little boy boldly stepped forward and put out his hand to “give sholom”. The Rebbe walked past, then turned around, and with a broad smile on His Holy Countenance, He shook the little boy’s hand.
