Yisrael Mei-Tal (Montwiliski) was born in 1932 in Druskieniki, Poland, to Alexander Montwiliski and Berta Pinchuk. His older brother Avraham-Zorach was four years older than him. With the outbreak of World War II, his family’s well-ordered life was turned upside down and they were forced to contend with many challenges in order to survive.
