[1] This is stone is recounted in the Yizkor book of Korczyna. David Kirschner and his son Leib hid from the Nazis during the liquidation of the Korczyna Ghetto in this cemetery. When they saw that all had gone, they returned and dug a grave for themselves. They were soon captured, and requested that they be brought to the cemetery. There, they were shot in the grave that they had dug for themselves, embracing one another. Years later a relative came and erected this monument as a living memorial.
