Photo Album of the Brochsztajn and Muzykant Families

of Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski and Lodz

Malka Brochsztajn was born on March 27, 1897, in Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski, to Tzevi Brochsztajn and Channa Kalchstein, who were in the tailoring business and very religious. Malka married Itzik David Muzykant, also of Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski, and they moved to Lodz. She was one of six brothers and four sisters, including Meilak (Mike), Laja (Lena), Sorreh (Sarah) and Golda, all of whom emigrated to Chicago prior to World War II. The recipients of the six photographs below were Sorreh and Golda.

Osher Brochsztajn, born in 1909 in Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski, was the youngest of the ten Brochsztajn siblings. He and his wife, Rajzla Zylberstajn, had at least two daughters. One daughter, pictured below (bottom right), was born in 1938, and her name remains unknown. A second daughter, Channa, was born on August 27, 1941, in the Lodz ghetto.

All family members pictured in these six photographs were presumed lost in the Holocaust, as were other Brochsztajn family members whose names were found in a Lodz yizkor book.
