Brothers Moisej and Aleksandr(Alexander) Zylberblat are buried in the same grave. Both were sons of Chone (Khone) ZylberbIat
who co-owned the Bialystok textile factory with his brother Wolf (alternatively, it was a separate company Zylberblat & Filip).
Aleksander had a very interesting biography. He was once a (2nd) husband of Peggie Stone, the internationally known singer and pianist (see e.g. https://www.dw.com/en/popular-1920s-entertainer-returns-to-spotlight-in-new-biography/a-6261683). Born Rosa Goldstein, she was actually his cousin as his mother was a Goldsztejn.
Just before the Soviets invaded Poland, in 1939, Alexander together with his brother Moisej was lured by the NKVD (then-KGB)
to Vilno where they were promised immigration passports, but instead they got arrested and exiled to Siberia (as "bourgeois elements"). After some time there, in 1944, Alexander was arrested again on false accusations and sentenced to 10 years in Gulag camps, but he survived and was released after Stalin`s death. He returned to Bialystok afterwards where he lived quietly and died. I remember hearing that he married again but had no children.
It seems that Moisej survived too, but not much is known about him so far.
