    schema:description "Samuel Golfard was born ca. 1910-12 in Radom, Poland, to a Jewish family. Well educated and assimilated within Polish culture, he fled in September 1939 to Eastern Galicia, later occupied by the Soviets, and settled in Peremyshlyany. During the German occupation, he was imprisoned in the ghetto there. In January 1943 he was deported to the Yaktoriv labor camp, where he was killed in June or July 1943. Golfard's diary, written in Polish, covers the period from January-April 1943; it was preserved by his Polish neighbor and friend Tadeusz Jankiewicz, and later sent to Jacob Litman, a Jewish survivor from the same town and Golfard's friend. Pp. 1-47 contain Lower's historical introduction to the diary, which highly appraises it as a historical document and a literary work. Pp. 49-95 contain an English translation of the diary, which describes events in the camp, as well as in Peremyshlyany and its vicinity; many of the latter events he knew of by hearsay only. Pp. 97-135 contain documents pertaining to the Holocaust in Peremyshlyany and to the wartime rescue of several Jews there by Tadeusz Jankiewicz."@en ;
