Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew born ca. 1935 in Kraśnik, Poland, to a hasidic family. He was the youngest of five children. Pp. 33-108 deal with the Holocaust period. One brother, Josef, was taken to a work camp in Budzyń and was never heard from again. Another brother, Abraham, was sent to work at the nearby Vippa fuel delivery station; he lived in a work camp in Kraśnik called the Skrent (not the same as the town camp). Their parents and the two other siblings were deported in April 1942, and perished. Shlomo escaped from the train which had taken his parents, having fallen out of an aperture by accident. He returned to Kraśnik, where his brother Abraham found him and took care of him, mainly hiding him in the work camp. In 1944 they escaped from the camp and joined partisans in the woods, where they were liberated.
