Abe Jakubowicz was born on September 24, 1924 in Piotrków Trybunalski, Poland. When Germany invaded Poland, Abe and his family lived in the ghettos. He and his father worked as slave laborers. He was separated from his father to work for a German ammunition factory. Abe was then taken to different concentration camps such as Auschwitz, Oranienburg-Sachsenhausen, Ohrdruf, and then to Buchenwald, where he was liberated. After his liberation, Abe went to Berlin and became friends with a German doctor who treated his TB. He got married and had kids, moved to the United States, and worked for a person who made glasses. Abe also worked for the Ford Motor Company. He and his family got involved with a Jewish community in Louisville and became American citizens. Abe tells of how the people in Poland treated them during a visit in 1992.
