Notes
David Dawidovicz was born on July 17, 1924 in Lodz, Poland. Soon after, his family moved to Tel-Aviv, Israel, where they stayed until 1931. At that point, they moved to Paris because of endemic poverty in Tel-Aviv. After four years in France, David, his mother and two of his sisters were expelled from France because they were illegal immigrants, unlike David’s father. David remembers the train journey through Germany, seeing lots of swastikas on buildings and on uniforms. He and his relatives spent six months in Lodz. There, David realized that Jews in Poland weren’t as emancipated as Jews in France. Back to France, David attended school until the war began. In 1941 and 1942, he witnessed several roundups. During the Vel d’Hiv roundup of July 1942, he hid in a small apartment with other people. They were able to hide thanks to French policemen who used to warn Jews. David hid for several weeks. He was eventually arrested in August 1942 by French policemen who took him to the offices of the UJF (Union des Juifs français). This organization gave money to the French police to send Jews to work in the Ardennes (a French region) instead of deporting them to Poland. David worked there until January 1944, at which point he decided to escape and join the resistance. He partook in the liberation of Paris. After the war, David took part in a program to de-Nazify the German youth. He lives in Paris to this day.

Photograph with white borders. Outdoor scene. From l. to r., are the Eta Rubenstein, 10 years old at the time, and Adele Rubenstein, 6 years old at the time. On the r. is their father Leon Rubenstein. Between Eta and Adele is a mascot in a bear costume. The family is posing in front of a wooden house with a rounded door. Narrative: Eta and Adele Rubinstein are the donor’s cousins and Leon is the donor’s uncle. Sara Ostrzega, nee Rubenstein, was born on 1923-05-13 in Lodz, Poland. Very shortly after the war broke out, Sara and her family were forced out of their house and into the Lodz ghetto. In 1944-08, the Rubenstein family was deported to Auschwitz. During the registration there, she and her mother were separated from her father and brother. They only stayed in Auschwitz for three days, and were then transported to Stutthof, where a large number of people were needed for the production of ammunition. Sara remained in Stutthof concentration camp for three months, before she was brought to Dresden. There she lived in a factory building, also forced to produce ammunition. On 1945-03-11, they were forced on a train to go to Theresienstadt camp-ghetto. Sara managed to flee from the train and remained hidden for four weeks. In 1945-05, she returned to Lodz, where she found that her father, uncle and brother were still alive. Her cousin Eta survived the Holocaust but her uncle Leon perished in Stutthof concentration camp in 1944.
