Overview

Born into a Jewish family in Poland in 1924, Samuel Soldinger found himself and his family confined to the Kraków Ghetto after the Germans invaded. While everyone around him died, Soldinger survived the Holocaust working in Oskar Schindler’s factory. After the war he learned to cut diamonds and moved to New York City. In 1962, Soldinger arrived in Chandler to manage the new Harry Winston diamond processing plant on Pecos Road. This exhibit traces the historic journey of this Chandler man.
