JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Urke Nachalnik - Autobiographical Excerpts From the Polish Gangster #general

Jose Gutstein

I've added yet another in a series of articles on Urke Nachalnik, legendary
Polish gangster, who was born in Wizna, Poland.

This one contains excerpts >from one of his two autobiographical books. He
describes his youth in Wizna and Lomza, and the initial episodes which
impacted his life and drove him to a life of crime.

His depictions are riveting, and the two-bit gangster scenes >from his youth
are fascinating to read.
