Oscar Haber, born in BrzeŹnica, Poland in 1910, was one of ten children raised in a family of devoutly Orthodox Jews. He and his wife Fryda were the only survivors of their family. They both speak perfect Polish so they were able to live clandestinely as non-Jewish Poles with the help of a priest. Oscar and Fryda were able to conceal their true identities even after the liberation. They tried to start a new life in Belgium and Israel, and then had a son. The three of them then moved to the United States, became American citizens, and were able to exercise their faith and rights. Oscar has friends of another faith who accept him for who he is.
