Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew, born in 1917 in Slovakia and raised in Kraków. In September 1939 his family attempted to escape from the advancing Germans, but failed. Unable to obtain a residence permit, they moved to Rzeszów in early 1941. Herzog, who worked at forced labor in the Rzeszów ghetto, describes mass executions and deportations in 1942. In November 1943 he fled from the ghetto, helped by friendly Poles. He crossed the border to Slovakia successfully, but was detained in Hungary and sent to the Csörgö camp. In June 1944 he fled from Csörgö and, after a series of arrests and flights (including from the Nováky camp), in June 1944 joined Soviet partisans operating in Slovakia. Herzog was disappointed by the hostility of many Poles toward the Jews during the war, and by the collaboration or indifference of some Jews. He was favorably impressed by the warm reception and the help rendered him by Slovakian Jews and by the humane treatment he received from non-Jewish Slovakians. After the war he settled in the USA.
