    Biography
    Frederika Judyta Sobel (the mother of the donor), also known as Judwiga or Jadzia was the only child of Herman and Salomea Sobel. Judyta was born in Lvov in 1923, but in 1935 she and her parents moved to Boryslaw where her father got a new job as an engineer. The Sobels survived the war in hiding at the home of their neighbors the Miezins. The Miezins hid two Jewish families consisting of seven individuals behind a false wall. After the war, the family moved to Lodz and Herman resumed his work as an engineer throughout Poland. He was instrumental in helping uncover the famous Ringelblum Oneg Shabbat Archives hidden beneath the rubble of the Warsaw ghetto. The family intended to move to Israel, but Herman died shortly before they left. Salomea and Judyta moved to Israel in 1950 and brought Herman's body with them for burial. Judyta studied art and six years later came to New York to continue her education. There she met Yitzchak Cukierman (later Irving Zuker), and they married six months later. Yitzchak was born in Krakow in 1916. He had studied architecture at the Jagelonian University before the war broke out and then was incarcerated in the Krakow ghetto. He, his brother Heniek and sister, Yetti Rosenzweig, all survived on Schindler's List. Another brother Moniek was killed in the Krakow ghetto and his parents perished in Auschwitz.
