    S. L. Shneiderman
    S.L. Shneiderman (1906-1996), was born Samuel Loeb Sznajderman in Kazimierz, Poland, the son of Abraham and Chana (nee Mandelbaum) Sznajderman. He studied at Warsaw University, and following that, worked as a journalist, serving as Paris correspondent for a number of Jewish daily newspapers in Poland, and covering the Spanish Civil War. In 1933 he married Eileen (Hala) Szymin (1908- ), and in 1940 he and Eileen immigrated to the United States with their young daughter, Helen. Among his books published was "Warsaw Ghetto: A Diary" by Mary Berg, which he edited and translated, and when published in 1944, was one of the earliest published eyewitness accounts of life in the ghetto. He also edited "My Story," by Gemma LaGuardia Gluck, the sister of New York mayor Fiorello LaGuardia, which describes Ms. Gluck's experiences in German-occupied Budapest during World War II, where she had been trapped with her Hungarian Jewish husband. Shneiderman became a United States citizen in 1949, and worked as a journalist in New York, writing for, among other publications, the Jewish Daily Forward, as well as Yiddish newspapers around the world. He moved to Ramat Aviv, Israel in 1994, where he died on 8 October 1996. [Source:].
