A Polish patriot, who renounced his country, which had betrayed him and his people. Jews had lived in Poland for nearly one thousand years and helped shape its culture and industry. His family was well endowed with professionals. His father was a distinguished lawyer who worked for the Ministry of Finance. The war destroyed his world, interrupted his dreams and forced him to deal with new realities. His loyalty and love for the old Poland that he knew so well slowly began to fade when he discovered that his nationalism was based on misconceptions about his Polish "brethren." The Nazi occupation gave his Polish neighbors a golden opportunity to get rid of the "Dirty Jews" and enabled them to steal their property. Many readily collaborated with the Nazis during the war, and there were even those who killed many survivors after the war. Although he unwillingly renounced his old homeland, nevertheless, he loved its culture and lived as a Pole in his new country until his death at age ninety-three.
