Romek-Reuven Brand was born in 1908 in Ozorkow, Poland. With the outbreak of war in 1939, Reuven and his two sisters fled to Russia on horseback, riding through Warsaw to Brisk. From there, the Soviet authorities deported the three to the interior of the Soviet Union. Along the way Reuven met Tola Fuerstental, who made a similar journey with her family, and the two married.
