My Parents' Experiences as Polish Slave Laborers in Nazi Germany and Displaced Persons after the War
Tuesday, March 20, 2018
My Polish father spent five years in the German concentration camp system. He was captured by the Germans in fall of 1940 and finally liberated by the Americans in spring of 1945.
During those five years, he saw men crucified and hung, castrated and frozen to death, women raped and beaten and shot, their breasts torn apart by bayonets, their babies thrown and scattered in the air like sand.
