New York landlord becomes legal guardian of 93-year-old Holocaust survivor: 'She had no one else'
Brock Cvijanovich, the owner of a property management company in New York state, was offered a $50,000 price cut on an apartment building in Binghamton, New York, if he agreed to take care of one of the residents of the building, Alice Schuman.
The previous property owner had been giving Schuman a deal on her rent for years, in addition to escorting her to the bank, doctor's appointments, and the grocery store at the beginning of every month. Cvijanovich followed suit; however, Schuman did not show up one day. It was then he found her injured in her apartment.
After receiving care at the hospital, the staff informed Cvijanovich that Schuman could not live independently. Schuman had no living relatives, so Cvijanovich hired a lawyer and became Schuman’s legal guardian along with his mother until Schuman’s death earlier this year.
