Alexander Shimon Tzvi (Shonyi)

Alexander Shimon Tzvi (Shonyi) Weingarten was killed in battle in defense of the Kastel outpost on the road to Jerusalem in Israel’s war of independence on the 28th of Adar Bet, (08.04.1948) just shy of 24 years old.   Shonyi came to Israel less than a year prior, from Hungary, having survived Nazi occupation, labor camps and an execution attempt.

His family says that Shonyi’s story was hidden from them during their childhood and was revealed to them only a few years ago.  Shonyi saved many lives during the Holocaust and survived himself through courage and miracles.  He was killed in his new country, Israel, to which he had only just arrived, and did not manage to plant roots and establish a family of his own.  The time has come to tell his unique story and provide him with a personal memorial.
