Abraham Zuckerman of Livingston, N.J., who was saved by factory owner Oskar Schindler’s now-famous list of Jews during the Holocaust, died Dec. 12 at age 89, the New Jersey Jewish News reports. Zuckerman, who was born in Krakow in 1924 and whose parents and two sisters were rounded up and killed when he was 14, was sent to six different concentration camps before being transferred to Oskar Schindler’s factory.

His name was one of more than 1,000 on Schindler’s list of Jews who were ultimately saved from deportation to death camps. Zuckerman and his wife, whom he met in a Displaced Persons camp in Austria after liberation, immigrated to the United States in 1949, where they settled in New Jersey. According to the Jewish News, Zuckerman founded a real-estate development company with two other “Schindlerjuden,” as they were known, and published a memoir, A Voice in the Chorus: Memories of a Teenager Saved by Schindler, in 1991.
