  • Dig DEEPER and you will find there is a very diffrent story and backround surrounding ‘Mark’-better known as Yehudah Seidenfeld .you see he is my husband ,but abandoned me an our 5 children several years ago,working in russia b/c there I could not ‘catch him ‘
    he like to boast.true ,he seems to be innocent of this crime ,but he definitly deserves to suffer for a change instead of us. People want to keep me quiet ,b/c they want people to think ‘poor guy’.Well, what about poor family?! He didn’t give a damn about us,STILL doesn’t ,15 months of sitting in a russian jail cell has still not opene his eyes. but there is this tramp natya boasting shie is his fiance, so I feel people should know abt me and the children!

  • This is ‘mark-menachem’s wife writing again.
    To get a better picture and more details of ‘the real mark seidenfeld’ story ,I posted more comments on other links that mention the Kaz. story, as well as kz blog,but some people would like to keep this quiet , so I do not know how long it will keep on the kzblog sight.
    Please check it out.
