Storyboard Text

  •  l am Jakob and I have 6 brothers, we are a religious Jewish family. We live in a town 50 in Gabin, and my dad is a cap maker. My family of nine lives in a one-room apartment on the top floor of a three-story building.
  • Gabin
  • Shul
  • Caps
  • Jakob’s father worked as a cap maker. Gabin had one of Poland’s oldest synagogues, built of wood in 1710.
  • The German's doused the synagogue and surrounding homes with gasoline and set them on fire. All the Jewish men were rounded up in the marketplace and held there while our synagogue and homes burned to the ground.
  • At age 12, Jakob was put in a group of men to be sent to labor camps. More than a year later, they were shipped to Auschwitz. 
  • Auschwits
  • The day after they arrived, Jakob Chaim were lined up with kids and old people. He asked a prisoner what was going to happen to them. He pointed to the chimneys. ‘Tomorrow the smoke will be from you.’ He said if they could get a number tattooed on our arms, they’d be put to work instead of being killed. They sneaked to the latrine, then escaped through a back door and lined up with the men getting tattoos.
  • After 17 months in Auschwitz, Jakob was force-marched to camps in Germany. Liberated in April 1945 near Austria, he immigrated to the United States at the age of 16.
