Richark Rozencwajg lived a comfortable life with his parents, Szyfra and Pinkus Rozencwajg in Zwolen, Poland, before the war. During the war, the family fled east, hid with farmers, was interned in the Lublin ghetto, at a work camp, and also found refuge with partisans. Pinkus Rozencwajg was killed while serving with Polish partisans. After the war Szyfra and Richark moved to France (where Richark was briefly placed in an orphanage) and in 1951, they moved to Australia. Richark eventually changed his name to Richard Rozen.
