Samuel M Feinberg
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 5, 1890
Sofia, Bulgaria
Death: Dec. 20, 1918
Ann Arbor
Washtenaw County
Michigan, USA

Son of Michial Feinberg (b. Russia) and Russian mother

Born in Sofia, Bulgaria, he emigrated to the US at age 17.

In 1915, he married Dr. Olga Pickman Feinberg. A remarkable woman who was born in Nicolaiev, in Southern Russia, she was barred by her religion from completing her education there and so she left to attend the University of Zurich where she received her medical degree. An OB/GYN in Chicago, she would later take a lead role in Operation Magic Carpet, taking some 4000 Jews in Yemen to Isreal.

Samuel Feinberg was a medical student at the University of Michigan when he contracted pneumonia and influenza and died, at age 29, at St. Joseph Sanitarium in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

A most beautiful statue of Niobe kneels atop the Samuel Feinberg marker. Niobe, a symbol of mourning in Greek mythology, was forced to witness as her children died horrible deaths, one after another.

Unfortunately, this very delicate sculpture has been the target of vandals who have broken off fingers and part of Niobe's nose. A photograph of Samuel Feinberg at the base of the marker has been destroyed.
