According to Hana Shaf-Brener, Mr. Zilbershtein (first name unknown) was a pharmacist and head of the choir. He was married, and the couple had a young son.

According to Kehilat Shkud, “the pharmacist Silberstein (hy”d) was the last choir conductor” (30) and also its founder (57).

According to “Jews in the Memory of Skuodas People” (link on this page), the pharmacist I. Zilbershtein was the owner of Skuodas’s Central Pharmacy (1). In the same document, a Skuodas resident recalled, “I remember that there were a few pharmacies in town: their owners were Zilberstein, Mirkes, and Katterfeld. Medicines were quite expensive: one had to pay two to three litas for a basic headache powder. Assistants working in the pharmacies had a special education. They prepared most of the medicines in the pharmacies according to the doctors’ prescriptions. But while it was possible to obtain food in grocery stores and pay for it later, credit was not available in the pharmacies” (25).

As of April 2014, neither Jewish Gen nor Yad Vashem provides any information on Mr. Zilbershtein and his family.
