His mother smuggled him, his brother and sister to the fields surrounding Sered, where they were hidden for two months, until they were arrested after being informed on. They were deported back to the ghetto and then deported to Auschwitz. The family was incarcerated for a week in the Family Camp in Auschwitz-Birkenau. He and his sister were sent to the children’s block, where they remained until liberation. After the war he learned that his father was murdered on a death march from Auschwitz to Gleiwitz.
