Do I believe in the Thirty-Six? I believe in miracles.
During the War, we were expelled 11 times to several towns and villages. By the end of 1942, my parents and 167 members of my family were exterminated in the death-camps of Treblinka, Belzec, Auschwitz and others. I was enslaved in the labour camps. After liberation, I returned to Katowice, married Hanka, the girl who saved my life in the camp. Together we began to rebuild our life. In 1950, our families decided to migrate to Israel. Thanks to my childhood friend Adam Weis, we ended up in Melbourne, Australia. We found a truly free and democratic country where my family could prosper and thrive. Australia provided us with freedom and equality to live as Jews.
