I was born on April 13, 1927 in Lodz, Poland. I was 12 years old when my family and I were sent to the Lodz Ghetto, the hell that lasted the longest. I worked in a fur factory until the ghetto was liquidated in July 1944. I was deported to Auschwitz and fortunate to survive. I was liberated by the Soviet Army on January 27, 1945. I married Regina, a Holocaust Survivor, and we moved to Australia and then to the USA. I am a Holocaust speaker. When I see all of the students at the Museum of Tolerance, I feel hope for the future.
