Signals From History

Signals from History

January 3, 1943: Polish President Vladistow Raczkiewiez requests that Pope Pius XII publicly denounce German atrocities against the Jews. Pius remains silent concerning both the German slaughter of the Polish Jews as well as the German attacks against Polish Catholics

January 4, 1943: Jewish fighting organizations are rounded up in Szestochowa, Poland [the home town of my late wife]. Its leader, Mandel Fiszlewicz, uses a hidden pistol to wound the German commander of the Aktion. Fiszlewicz and 25 other men are immediately shot and 300 women and children from the group are deported to the Treblinka death camp and gassed. [1]
