B&w. Outdoors. Portrait of Paul Trepman wearing a vertically striped uniform, leaning on a fire hydrant, with a building in the background. Narrative: Paul Trepman was born in Warsaw, Poland. He was an only child. His family were followers of the GurRebbe. In his youth, Paul Trepman joined the Betar Zionist movement. Trepman became a journalist and an author and published in the revisionist press. His studies at the University in Vilna were interrupted by the war. He survived the war living in the Warsaw area with fake Aryan identification papers until he was arrested in June 1943 and accused of being a Soviet spy. He was deported to Majdanek and subsequently to other camps. He was liberated in Bergen-Belsen in April 1945. After Liberation, he became involved in the cultural and political life of the Bergen-Belsen Displaced Persons Camp. In July 1945 he was the founding coeditor (with Rafael Olewsky and David Rosenthal) of Undzer Shtimme, the first Jewish newspaper in the British Zone. Trepman was also an editor of Zamy Feder's Anthology of Songs and Poems from the Ghettos and Concentration Camps, and was co-editor, again with Olewsky and Rosental, of an early photo album of the Holocaust, the multilingual Undzer Churbn in Bild, (Our Destruction in Pictures, Bergen-Belsen, 1946). Trepman and his wife immigrated to Montreal in 1948.
