- Family name, Szlamberg.
First name, Mosze.
Wartime location, Warsaw ghetto.
Circumstance, time and place of death unknown.
Children's names under the age of 18 that perished.
Zlata, age 15, time and place of death, Warsaw ghetto.
Mandil, age 17, time and place of death, Warsaw ghetto.
And I promised myself I wouldn't cry.
That's hard not to.
- It's hard not to.
- That is crazy.
I mean, you really couldn't imagine the horror.
It's just so crazy to imagine.
Now I know why you put the tissues.
It's crazy to imagine that Saul would be on the other side,
- Oh, yeah.
- On Ludlow Street.
- [man] Yep.
- And how different it would be
being in America at that time,
the fate of one brother versus the other.
- That makes me feel more deeply connected
to that side of myself, that side of my family.
I didn't expect that.
