ARN-DANYEL VINER (1892-1942)
            He was born in Lodz, the grandson of the manufacturer Moyshe-Arn Viner who played a great role in developing the Lodz textile industry.  He worked for the library of the Towarzystwo Krzewienia Oświaty (TKO, Association for the Dissemination of Enlightenment), and he served as secretary of the first Lodz Jewish literary and journalistic association.  He published current events articles, lyrical impressions, and translations in: Der yudisher zhurnalist (The Jewish journalist) in Lodz, Dos folk (The people), and elsewhere.  His autobiographical novel, “Dos hoyz fun moyshe-arn viner” (The house of Moyshe-Arn Viner), from which he published chapters in various newspapers, concealed the origins of the textile industry in Lodz.  From 1926 he was living in Warsaw where he was active in the Folkspartey (People’s party).  He was killed by the Nazis during the Ghetto Aktion in the winter of 1942.
