  • Sol Rosenberg (February 2, 1926 – January 30, 2009) was a Polish-born American businessman and philanthropist. He was a Jewish survivor of the German Nazi death and concentration camps who became an industrialist and philanthropist in Monroe in northeastern Louisiana. After the German invasion of Poland of 1939 Rosenberg lived in the Warsaw Ghetto set up by the Nazi occupiers of Poland. The German Nazi regime sent his parents and two sisters to their deaths in 1942, but Rosenberg was one of the very few to escape from the death camp at Treblinka; he returned to Warsaw, where he participated in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Rosenberg was then sent to the Dachau concentration camp, where he was liberated by the Allied Powers after the final overthrow of the Nazi regime. In Poland, Rosenberg met his wife, the former Tola Baron (June 22, 1924 – January 12, 2006). The couple emigrated to Louisiana in 1949 and thereafter settled in Monroe where they started Sol's Pipe and Steel Co. from scratch. (en)
