Aron Bielski, 80, who with his three older brothers in Eastern Europe mounted the biggest armed rescue of Jews by Jews during the Holocaust, has been arrested with wife Henryka on suspicion of tricking a 93-year-old woman into giving them control of more than $250,000 in various bank accounts.
According to police, the couple then convinced the woman they were taking her on a vacation to her native Poland, and instead put her in a nursing home there, returned to Palm Beach and spent her money, nearly every penny.
Bielski's attorney has strongly denied the allegations and said the old woman was going senile.
