He was a Holocaust survivor, and he left behind many family members. Only knowing a few words of English, he quickly learned the language as he assimilated to Baltimore. From the age of 12, he sold magazines and cigarettes door to door and worked in a grocery store. For over 50 years, he worked as a manufacturers’ representative of children’s clothing.
