Rozenwald -- Warta, Poland #poland


John Crust
 

I'm doing research on the Jewish community of Warta (pronounced: vahr-tah, in Polish; Dvort, in Yiddish), Poland, with a particular focus on the old Jewish cemetery. I'd like to learn more about the Rozenwald family. One brother, Ezre, was among the 10 Jewish men publicly hanged in 1942. Another brother, Mordecai, was killed in December, 1945. Another brother, Meir Laub, appears to have survived the war. He was a barber, and his barbershop was in the old market square, in the center of town. A number of years ago, apparently his son from the U.S. visited the barbershop, now operated by a Polish barber. The last name possibly has been anglicized -- maybe now Rosenvald?

Thank you.
