Jiri Jacobowitz, 1924 - 2012

Our cousin in Brazil, Jiri Jacobowitz died on August 15, 2012, in Sao Paolo.

Jiri's daughter Suzana posted a wonderful photo of her with her dad on FaceBook.

Jiri was known in several languages.: Júri in Portuguese, Jiri Jacobowitz in English, Gyuri Jakubovics in Hungarian, and perhaps some more.

He had an amazing life. He told the story of helping get cousins from the Nazi camps to Brazil in a conversation we had in November of 2010 on Skype. I took good notes.
