The Admor Rabbi Yekutiel Yehuda Teitelbaum (1912-1944) was the son of Rabbi Haim Zvi (the Etzei Haim) of Sighet, and son-in-law of his uncle Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum of Satmar (the VaYoel Moshe). He was the brother of the Admor HaBarech Moshe of Satmar. He was a rabbi and Admor in Sighet, succeeding his father at the age of 14—at his father’s funeral he received a note from the Gaon Rabbi Shaul Brach, Av Beit Din of Karola. His relative Rabbi Yekutiel Yehuda Gross was brought especially from Barbesht to teach him pedagogy and Admorut. He helped refugees greatly during the Shoah. During his lifetime the debates between the chassidei Vizhnitz and Sighet quieted down. He was murdered at Auschwitz in Iyar 1944.
