KL Plaszow #holocaust
With the commemoration of International Holocaust Day on Thursday, I am pleased to share the news of the memorial to the KL Plaszow concentration camp. As I mentioned before, my 95 year old mother, Tova Zaks, was interned there. Her details and picture are now part of the memorial site. It was an incredible effort led by Kamil Karski’s dedicated team at the Krakow museum.
My late parents-in-law, Shimek and Karola Berger-Gorski (formerly of
Częstochowa) were in Plaszow for a period of time. Karola was a cook for a
while to Amon Goth and met Oskar Schindler on one of Oskar's visits. Sadly
their 5 year old daughter, Victoria, was taken in one of the round ups in
Plaszow and died there. Shimek and Karola survived Plaszow and Auschwitz and
came to Australia in 1948.
