Posted by admin on Jun 16, 2009

An Holocaust survivor from the US donated Monday personal items of victims of Auschwitz to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial Institute in Jerusalem.

95-year-old Meyer Hack came especially from Massachusetts for the occasion.

Born in Ciechanow, Poland, Hack was deported in 1942 together with his mother, brother and two sisters, to the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp. His mother and sisters were murdered on arrival and his brother was murdered later on.

Meyer was sent to forced labor hauling carts of personal effects and clothing between Birkenau and Auschwitz before their eventual transfer to Germany.
