Here's my father's story. There are some similarities to Paul Gottlieb's father.

My father was born in 1909 in Kuty, Galicia. He lived and went to school in Vienna, Austria from 1920 until 1930. From 1930 to !941, he worked as an accountant in Stanislawow, Poland, In 1941, he was sent to Siberia by the Red Army. He worked there in the forced labor camps and in the munition factory until 1946. From 1946 to1949, we were in the DP camp in Hofgeismar, Germany. 

My father's Yiddish/Hebrew name was Moishe. Other names and nicknames used were Maurycy, Munya, Misha and Morris. He was always called by family and friends as Munya and Misha.
