Alexander Riseman and Yitzhak Rajsman

Alexander Riseman and Yitzhak Rajsman

Alexander and Yitzhak Rajsman were born in Lodz, Poland. They had a sister called Rochel who died in the camps. Their parents Lea and Pinchos also did not survive.

After the war, the two brothers came to the UK with the Boys and stayed in Windermere. Yitzhak later settled in Israel and kept the original spelling of their name.

My father, Alexander Riseman, was a men’s tailor who believed in staying religious so the square includes a man’s suit and a Sefer Torah to signify frum Jewish life which he instilled in his family.
