Dr. Lazar Schneider
"Born in Zuwarno in 1895. He began studying medicine in 1914 but his studies were interrupted by the outbreak of World War I. Drafted into the Austrian army, he served from 1915 until 1919. Graduating in 1924, he practiced in Horodenka. A general practitioner, he often performed emergency operations of a very complicated nature, including abdominal and even brain surgery. He was executed by the Germans for taking a public stand against Nazi atrocities."
