Where can you hide when you’ve been classified as an “Unreliable Object”?
Severin was just 17 years old when, as the Nazis conquered Poland, he escaped to Russia. Instead of affording him shelter, the Russians stuffed him into a small train car in the dead of winter with 20 others and sent them all to a Russian labor camp. Exhaustion, frostbite, hunger, and disease killed them off one by one. But Severin survived. Severin went back to Poland after the War, but found anti-Semitism rife in his native country. Finally, after years of struggling, he arrived with his wife in Israel where they live today with their children and grandchildren, and where Severin’s “real” life continues.
