Rhoda Kotzin

On May 9, 2015, Adam Markovitz and Alison Billi got married in Madison, Wisconsin. At the wedding reception, I chatted with Rhoda Kotzin, whose grandmother was Helen Frydland (“Aunt Helen” to the Hurwicz family), sister of Sara Lea Frydland. Rhoda told me that Leo slept on the couch at Helen’s apartment in Chicago when he first came to the United States in 1940. Leo gave Rhoda piano lessons. She was about seven at the time.

Rhoda’s father (whose given name was Adolph) was also called Adek, like Leo’s father. Moshe was Rhoda’s paternal grandfather. Leo usually referred to him as Moritz. He emigrated to Canada soon after World War I. Rhoda also said that Rhoda’s father (Adek) and Leo’s father (Adek) had the same grandmother and grandfather, so they were first cousins. In fact, since the two brothers had married two sisters, Max and Moritz’s children would have exactly the same grandparents, namely, the parents of Max and Moritz, and the parents of Sara Lea and Helen.
