This chapter explores The Rottenbergs who Lived near the River Bug, which was written by two cousins, Irena Kowalska and Ida Merżan. Their grandfathers, Chaim and Szmul Rottenberg, were brothers and co-owners of Skrychiczyn, an estate on the River Bug. The bulk of the book, some 158 pages, were written by Kowalska, and the remaining fifty-three pages were the work of her cousin Merżan. Kowalska uses archival material to describe the history of the family. In addition, she provides interesting details about the history of the town of Dubienka, the importance of the River Bug to the area and the family, and the main events that determined the fate of the large, extended Rottenberg clan. Merżan concentrates on reminiscences of family celebrations of Jewish festivals.

Keywords:   Irena Kowalska, Ida Merżan, Skrychiczyn, River Bug, Dubienka, Rottenberg clan, family celebrations, Jewish festivals
