Rav Shamshon escaped Europe and the Holocaust with his father, who was joined by a group of his talmidim, arriving on the West Coast of the United States.
Rav Reuven passed away in 1958.
Rav Shamshon was a brother of Rav Chaim Grozovsky; Rebbetzin Esther Ungarischer, wife of Rav Don Ungarischer, rosh yeshiva of Bais Medrash Elyon; and Rebbetzin Rochel Krupenia, wife of Rav Levi Krupenia, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Kamenitz in Brooklyn.
