    Camera Operator: Simon Mahler
    Szymon (Simon) Mahler (1893-) was one of thirteen siblings. His parents, Wolf and Bascha Mahler, owned a butcher shop in Krosno, Poland. Simon left Krosno for New York in 1912. He married Eva Schoenwetter (1894-) in 1921. Their children were born in New York: Jack (b. 1922), Blanche (b. 1924), and Charles (b. 1926). Many of Simon's family members in Krosno were murdered during the Holocaust. The Jewish population of Krosno numbered 1725 in 1921. German troops entered Krosno on September 9, 1939. In August 1942, Jews were ordered to ghettos and later sent to Auschwitz or Belzec. Some were able to survive by hiding in Polish homes or the forest.
