Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jewish lawyer, born in Skała (Galicia) in 1913. His parents died during World War I; he had two brothers and two sisters. Describes life in Kraków after the Nazi occupation, the establishment of the ghetto, the activities of the Judenrat, and his own activities as head of the Jüdische Soziale Selbsthilfe and a member of "Sneh", a resistance organization in the ghetto. After the ghetto's liquidation in June 1943 he was sent to the Bieżanów labor camp. After escaping from the camp, he spent some time with Polish partisans and eventually reached Budapest. There he worked for the Polish Delegatura headed by Henryk Sławik, which arranged for Polish Jews who escaped to be registered in Hungary as Catholics. Relates his actions to rescue thousands of Polish and Hungarian Jews in Budapest, including organizing transports to Palestine through Romania. Zimmermann was active in Romania between April-August 1944, and then emigrated to Palestine himself. One of his sisters survived the war and reached Palestine with Anders' Army.
