HARRY BRODWIN - Born in Tarastita, Russia, on January 4, 1892, Harry Brodwin came to this country with his parents, Jacob and Reba Brodwin, when he was eight years of age and went with them to live in Philadelphia where his father engaged in the real estate business.

He attended the public schools of that city, finishing his studies in 1905. He then worked for several years as a Messenger and in the grocery business, but his desire was to study music. He finally obtained a position as a salesman of pianos, devoting a part of his time to vocal culture. In 1913. he started his present business in pianos, phonographs, and radio sets, which he established in his own store at No. 535 Courtlandt Avenue, The Bronx, under the firm name of Brodwin & Company, in 1919. Mr. Brodwin is a member of the Jacob Schiff Center, where he is also a soloist.

On January 16, 1916, at Philadelphia, Harry Brodwin, married Sarah Resnick, daughter of Morris and Bessie Resnick. To Mr. and Mrs. Brodwin three children have been born: Beatrice, Frances, and Maurice. The family are members of Adath Israel Temple.

In 1892, in the year that Harry Brodwin was born, on October 5th, the Dalton Gang was shot. The Gang was attempting to rob two banks - simultaneously - in Coffeyville Kansas but word spread of the robberies and townspeople with guns greeted them when they left the banks. Four members of the gang were killed - only Emmett Dalton survived his wounds and spent 14 years in prison.

In 1915, at the age of 23 years old, Harry was alive when Audrey Munson, playing a model for a sculptor in the film "Inspiration", became the first actress to shed her clothes on screen. Fearing that banning the film would mean that censors would also have to "ban Renaissance art" the film was released, with Munson in the nude scenes and a stand-in doing the acting. (Munson had previously been "America's First Supermodel" and posed nude as the model for many famous artworks.) The film was a hit with audiences.

In 1939, Harry was 47 years old when on the 1st of September, Nazi Germany invaded Poland. On September 17th, the Soviet Union invaded Poland as well. Poland expected help from France and the United Kingdom, since they had a pact with both. But no help came. By October 6th, the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany held full control of the previously Polish lands. Eventually, the invasion of Poland lead to World War II.

In 1955, when he was 63 years old, in January, President Eisenhower sent direct aid to South Vietnam. In February, U.S. advisors were sent to train troops.

In 1967, in the year of Harry Brodwin's passing, between June 5th and 10th, Israeli and Egypt, Jordan, and Syria fought what came to be called the "Six-Day War". The hostilities began when Israel launched "preemptive" strikes against Egypt, destroying nearly its entire air force. It ended with Israel occupying the Sinai Peninsula, Golan Heights, Gaza Strip and West Bank.
