Abstract:

Memoirs written in 1980 by Kron (1905-1984), born in Šiauliai, Lithuania. Pp. 61-82 recount his experiences in the Holocaust. Describes the German occupation in 1941 and life in the ghetto. Kron received special treatment since he was a superintendent at the city's tannery. However, his four-year-old daughter was deported during a children's roundup in November 1943 and perished. Kron then hid his seven-year-old daughter with a Catholic couple. Kron and his wife escaped from the ghetto in July 1944, helped by a Lithuanian friend. They went into hiding in the countryside and were soon liberated by Soviet troops. Kron returned to work in Šiauliai; later, he and his family escaped to the American zone in Germany and then emigrated to Canada.
