SAM AND FANNIE BURACK AT A FAMILY BAR MITZVAH

Tivoli Terrace

Westbury, New York

 

Sam Burack left Poland in the early 1920s, having spent some time in Cuba until he was able to immigrate to the United States in 1926.

Sam and Fannie married in 1951, sometime after the passing of Fannie's first husband Max Burack, a brother of Sam.

"Sam was very good (to us.) He used to take us to Radio City. We used to go over there, my sister and I. He took us to the circus. He was very good to my mother, excellent to my mother. He took care of her...When I went away (as a soldier to Korea), when Marilyn (Aaron's wife) used to come to the house, Sam used to escort--that's what a gentleman he was--he used to escort (her), take her home, to make sure she got home safe.

Sam used to work in a factory cutting meat...I know Sam  took the subway because it was early in the morning, you know. Three-thirty, four o'clock he used to leave (for work)."--son Aaron
