The Fleishmans

Sunday, January 8th, 2006


Many years ago, my wife told the unusual story of a family named Fleishman. The Fleishmans lived in her neighborhood when she was a young girl. I thought it would be interesting to see how the rest of her family remembered the Fleishmans. So, I asked my Mother-In-Law, my Wife’s Brothers and Sisters, and my Wife to tell me what they remembered about the Fleishmans. I told no one the topic in advance, no one got to hear anyone else’s responses, and all were asked to keep the topic of the interview secret. Click here to see “The Fleishmans.”
