Olivia Newman honors her father’s maternal familial line, the Rosenzweig family of
Vienna. Dr. Max Rosenzweig, born in 1882, was a dentist in Vienna, and later married
Grete Tischler. The couple had one son, named Hans. Both Dr. Max Rosenzweig and his
son Hans died in the Holocaust, as well as other members of the family, but specific
details are unknown. Olivia’s father Rudolf Schneider also died during the Holocaust,
probably at Mauthausen.
