Mr. Ruby Sosnowicz was born in Warsaw Poland. He miraculously escaped the Warsaw ghetto alone and became a child in hiding. This is the only photo he has of himself at that time.
The accordion you see in this photo with Ruby and the first band he created after nazi liberation,belonged to an old Jewish man. Ruby witnessed his death. He promised that if he survived nazi persecution he would get it back, teach himself to play in honor of him, and he did.!
Ruby has created many bands and orchestras including the original Holocaust Survivor band, and has entertained thousands of people throughout the United States, Paris, Canada, Europe and Israel. He is an Historian and Archivist of Jewish music and performed at hundreds of venues including New Yorks Yiddish Theater, The Ed Sullivan Show, Jacob Javitz Convention Center, Kings Theater, Studio 54 and John F. Kennedy Center For Performing Arts all with incredible reviews. Ruby is so excited to introduce his latest creation.
Ruby Sosnowicz Founder and Musical Director, has once again created a musical ensemble of incredibly talented musicians, that are children of Holocaust Survivors. Here we are rehearsing in Ruby's recording studio.
