Biography

1957
Brooklyn, New York



Landsman Harry Stein
by his great granddaughter Stacy Hankin


Harry Stein (born Herschel Sztern) was one of at least four children born to Abram Moshe and Mariam Sztern in Zambrow, Poland, sometime between the years of 1878 and 1884. Harry immigrated to the United States in October of 1904, around the same time as his three brothers Schmul, Schimen, and Duvid. In the United States, Harry worked as a tailor and as a cantor on the high holidays. When he first came to the United States, he lived on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, later moving to Brooklyn with his wife Sarah and their four children.

Harry loved to travel to Florida and always enjoyed smoking a cigar. He and other members of the family were active in the United Zembrover Society, and at one point,  he served as the society's president.
