From September 1939 until April 1945, Michael Urich, from Poland, was transferred into and out of a ghetto, raised briefly by a non-Jewish woman and ultimately tortured in Buchenwald. Urich was the only living survivor of his family.

“You fought every day not to waste away,” Urich, now 83, told The Jerusalem Post. “Then as a young boy, you get out and make it to Israel, but you are all alone and you have to solve your own problems – no one is there to help you.”
