Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew, Raizel Teperman, as recounted to her daughter, Helen Max. Teperman was born in Jedlinsk, near Radom in Poland in 1929. Recounts how the German occupation in 1939 affected the life of the family, which consisted of a brother and a sister in addition to Teperman and her parents. They were interened in the ghetto created by the Germans in 1941, but Teperman worked outside, in a German army supply camp (AVL). Her brother was killed either in the second selection in the ghetto in 1942, or during his deportation. Teperman survived a selection of children at the AVL and was transferred to Blizyn, a satellite of Majdanek, with her sister and father. After seven months in Blizyn, the camp was split and the men were sent to an unknown destination. Teperman and her sister were sent to Auschwitz. In summer 1944 Teperman was moved to Kratzau, a satellite of Gross-Rosen, where she worked at slave labor until she was liberated by the Russians. She returned to Radom and discovered that her sister was alive in Bergen-Belsen. She joined her there, and they subsequently emigrated to Australia. Her father perished in the Plaszów labor camp.
