Weinstein family, eastern Slovakia

I'm looking for information on a Weinstein family from the village of Huncovce (or Hunsdorf), near Poprad in eastern Slovakia.
My late father, Joshua, was born in Huncovce in 1915 to Sarah and Josef Weinstein. He had 8 or 9 older brothers and sisters. I have names of only two: Hindrich (or Yitzhak), an elder brother, who survived the Holocaust and was the only one to reunite with my father after the war, and Yolan, a sister who married Pinchas Reicher from Kezmarok, a nearby town, and had a daughter called Bezhy. I also know that the eldest brother was a "shochet".
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
