Mr Henry Sadowitz

Mr Henry "Harry" Sadowitz was born in Whitechapel, London, England in 1895.

He was the son of Solomon Sadowitz (b. 1868), a metal plate worker, and his wife Julia (b. 1871) who were both born within the Russian Empire, possibly Poland, and had married around 1893. He had three siblings: Alexander (b. 1894), Fanny (b. 1898) and Hyman (b. 1900), all born in London.

He appears on the 1901 census living with his family at Old Montague Street, Whitechapel, London. By the time of the 1911 census Harry and his family are listed as living at 57 Nicholas Street, Globe Road, Mile End, London and Harry is described as an apprentice fur cutter.

Sadowitz boarded the Titanic in Southampton on 10 April 1912 as a third class passenger (ticket number 1855, which cost £7, 11s, 10d), describing himself as a fur cutter, and he was bound for Providence, Rhode Island.

Henry Sadowitz died in the sinking. His body, if recovered, was never identified.
