Biographical / Historical
Joe Saul was a young married man when the Kaiser’s troops marched into his native Lithuania in 1914. He and his family fled to Russia and settled in Minsk where he worked as a cloth buyer. Eventually, he worked his way into Siberia with the idea to immigrate to America. On New Year’s Day, 1918, he finally landed in San Francisco with hundreds of other refugees. His sister, Mrs. Ida Golden lived in Atlanta, so Joe settled in Atlanta where he established a small dry goods store. He soon sent for his wife and children still in Russia. His business, Saul’s Department Store became a landmark of 30 years in Marietta. He was a member of Ahavath Achim Congregation.
