    Biography
    Faye Riva Cohen is the daughter of David Rosenzweig (June 8, 1921 in Sosnowiec, Poland) and Anna (Chana) Genzels Rosenzweig (b. October 12, 1922 in Pinczow, Poland). David and Anna knew each other before the war. They both lived in Sosnowiec and possibly were already engaged. David's brother was married to Anna's sister. Anna and David both came from large families, and most of their family members perished during the Holocaust. David spend five years in concentration camp. He first went to Gross Rosen in 1940 and also spent time in its sup-camp Bunzlau Dora-Mittelbau and was liberated from Bergen-Belsen. Anna also was deported to Gross Rosen and then to the Parschnitz sub-camp. She survived together with Genya Rosenzweig, one of David's two surviving sisters. His sister Mania and his cousins Ben and Joe Rosenzweig also survived. After the war all the surviving relatives came to the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp. David and Anna married there and Faye was born there in 1947. Two years later the family immigrated to the United States and settled in Minnesota where David worked in the meat business.
