Stories Survive: Mark Schonwetter

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Mark Schonwetter was a young child in Brzostek, Poland when Germany invaded and his family was forced out of their home. After his father was taken by the Gestapo, Mark fled along with his mother and sister. They spent time in a nearby ghetto and then went into hiding in the Polish countryside, where they remained for three years. By the end of the war, Mark was one of only a few surviving Jews from Brzostek.

Mark emigrated to the United States in 1961 and found work in a jewelry factory. He ultimately purchased another jewelry company and remained in the jewelry business until he retired in 2018.

Join Mark and his daughter Ann Arnold, author of Together: A Journey for Survival, for this Stories Survive program exploring Mark’s story of courage and compassion.
