Chief Rabbi Herzog of Slovakia died of a heart attack recently while en route to a concentration camp together with his wife and children, the Federation of Czechoslovakian Jews here learned today. The rabbi, who was sixty, collapsed while being driven by the Slovakian police from his home at Stupava to the local railway station. His body was left lying in the street while his wife and children were placed on the deportation train, despite their tearful pleas to be allowed to remain long enough to bury him.
