Eisner, ‘The Survivor’

Eisner, who made his money in the import-export business, helped found several Holocaust remembrance organizations and wrote an autobiography, “The Survivor,” which was made into a play and a movie. Born in Warsaw with the name Jacek Zlata, he survived a series of concentration camps, including Majdanek and Flossenburg. More than 100 of his relatives died in the Holocaust.
