CUKIER, Radzyń & Warsaw, Poland #poland

Yale Reisner

Dear JewishGenners:

I offer the following on the off-chance that someone is related to these people.  Despite popular assumptions, not all Polish Jews perished in the Holocaust and those who survived in various ways are also our relatives. 

On November 8, 2022, the renowned Polish-Jewish novelist, playwright, screenwriter and journalist Józef HEN celebrated his 99th birthday.  

Józef HEN was born Józef Henryk CUKIER on November 8, 1923 in Warsaw to the plumber Rubin CUKIER of Radzyń & Chawa (Ewa; née HAMPEL) of Warsaw.  Until the war, the family lived at ul. Nowolipie 53 in Warsaw.

Hen began his writing career as a child, publishing in Janusz Korczak's children's magazine Mały Przegląd, and he never stopped writing after that.  His many publications are quite popular and have been translated into Czech, German, French and Russian among other languages.  He has won several literary awards over his many years of literary activity.  He survived the Holocaust in exile in Samarkand, Uzbekistan (USSR) and returned to Poland in military service.

Józef's son Maciej HEN (born in Warsaw 1955) is a celebrated writer, film director, actor, screenwriter, photographer and translator in his own right.  He has published several novels and has acted in and/or directed numerous films.

If anyone recognizes the HEN or HAMPEL families as relatives, please contact the undersigned.

Many thanks,
