He was born in 1904 and on the completion of his early education at schools in Cracow commenced an eight years' course at the Technical High School in Dantzig, where he was awarded the mechanical engineering diploma.

He then acted as technical adviser to the Polish Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Shipping, in London, where he was in charge of the refrigerating section and was responsible to the head of the food department for the planning of equipment and the framing of an outline of post-war developments of refrigeration in Poland.

In addition, he was selected as Polish expert at the Inter-allied Committee on post-war requirements and acted in the same capacity at U.N.R.R.A. In 1946 he resumed his employment with Messrs. Low Temperature Developments. Mr. Rosner's death occurred in May 1950."
