Max and Sara Lea (Frydland) Hurwicz with their four daughters (Rachel, Dorota, Felicia, Helenka), Adek‘s sisters.

They were the first “Hurwicz” family in our genetic line. (Prior to Max Hurwicz, the family name was Kotzin. He took the name Hurwicz to avoid the draft: The Kotzins had two sons, the Hurwicz family had none. An only son would not be drafted. So Max was registered as a Hurwicz.)

Look in Sara Lea’s eyes in this picture. If you see a fierce and fearless woman, you are not far off. A story is told about her that in 1917, a soldier came to their door demanding all their food and money. Sara Lea, knowing that the soldier would probably not shoot her, grabbed a broom and started beating him and yelling, “Get out of here right now!” Not knowing what else to do, he complied.

Leo said, “My father is not in the picture because he was in Warsaw.”

So this picture must have been taken between 1919 (when Adek returned to Warsaw with Zina and Leo) and 1927 (when Max died).

Helenka, who emigrated to the U.S. from Russia in 1973, is probably the daughter standing just behind and to the right of Sara Lea (closer to Max).
