Boris 2, or Boris the Younger, went from China to Japan and finally to Hong Kong. I think his wife Sara died in Japan. His elder daughter is Mary Bloch, the widow of George Bloch, who still lives in Hong Kong along with her sons, Rob and Gershon Dorfman. Mary’s younger sister Ronnie lives in New York (Long Island).
Sara died in Japan on August 3, 1964. She is buried in the Yokohama Foreign General Cemetery.
