Lotrovsky, Yosef (“Yoske”, “Yossele”)


Yosef, son of Aharon and Hannah Lotrovsky, was born on 15 March 1930 in the city of Leipzig, Germany. In 1946, after the end of the war, he left his parents’ home, together with his brother and immigrated to Israel in the “illegal” immigration. He was imprisoned in the Atlit camp, but with the help of his uncle, a member of Givat Hashlosha, was released. In May 1948, he was drafted into the army and participated in the three wars, namely the War of Independence, the Sinai Campaign, and finally the Six-Day War. After the War of Independence he brought his girlfriend to Shfayim, married her, and they built their family’s nest there. He was a loyal husband and devoted father to his sons, who were born after the establishment of the state and gave his home a pleasant atmosphere. While Yosef was doing his duty, he was severely injured while digging in the ground and then fought with death for two weeks until the 7th of Sivan 5767 (June 15, 1967), when he died of his wounds as a result of his duties. He left a wife and three sons. Yosef was buried in the cemetery in Shefayim.
