The writer (“The Baal Sha’arei HaYusher”) was the son of R. Chaim Friedlander and grandson of R. Tzvi Hirsch Friedman, the first and second Lisker Rebbes respectively. He was appropriately called "Charif (sharp) Hershele" due to his outstanding mind. During the war he refused to abandon his followers, subsequently, he and most of his family perished.
