Biographical / Historical

Max Rosenbluth (Rose), a dentist, born October 30, 1904 in Dynow District Brzozow, Poland, until emigration from Poland to the U.S. in 1945. Father was Herman Rosenbluth and mother Bluma Rosenbluth (maiden name Haber). In 1932 Mr. Rose married Eugenia Zuckerberg. In 1934, daughter Tamara was born. In May 1929, he opened first dental office. In December 1941, the Nazis ordered family to leave home and office and was immediately forced into the ghetto. In the early winter of 1944, after liberation, Mr. Rose undertook the journey home. In Przemysl, Poland Mr. Rose found his wife and child. In May 1945, the family packed all their belongings and moved to a Displaced Persons Camp. Mr. Rose was placed in a dental clinic as chief dentist supervising four other dentists from December 1945 until December 1946. After five years and three months of imprisonment, forced labor, fear, starvation and uncertainty – from ghetto of Przemysl to the Plaszow labor camp to Auschwitz concentration camp, through D.P. camps – he picked up the torn ends and began a new life. The family immigrated to America, disembarked from the USS Ernie Pyle on February 18, 1947. Mr. Rose became a citizen of the United States on February 6, 1953. He passed away in 1969.
