Nathan and David Steinhorn
July 6, 1938

Left to right, Jakub (9 years old), Henya, Natan and Max (five years old). Henya perished in the Rosh Hashanah 1941 aktionen in Kosow Lacki. Nathan was the plumber in Kosow and was an essential worker that was saved for his skills.

Jakob and Max were taken and killed in the Rosh Hashanah aktionen that took place a year later in 1942. After the loss of his whole family, Nathan escaped to Czernowitz which was held by the Russians.

Nathan continued living in the ghetto with his children. As reported in Home is No More, (Gertner and Gertner), men and women who lost spouses in the aktionen were matched up with survivors with the thought that a whole family may be spared in any future aktionens.
