Description

Holocaust survivor HENRY MELNICK was born in Lodz, Poland. Shortly after the Nazis occupied Poland in 1939, he was sent to do slave labour in the Nowy Sacz, Tarnow Ghettos and Szebnie camp. He was then transferred to Auschwitz-Birkenau, Buna, Dora-Mittelbau and Bergen-Belsen death camps. When his parents were murdered in the Belzec death camp, he became the sole survivor of his entire family. After liberation, Henry volunteered for the Israeli Army and fought for Israel's independence. He came to Canada in 1965 with his wife Hela and their two children. His story is one of strength and courage. His survival is nothing short of a miracle. Some content of this book may not be suitable for children. All profits from the sale of this book go directly to Holocaust education.
