FC: By Brittany Cruise :) | Shep Zitler Born: May 27, 1917
1: He was classified as one of the Lithuanian Jews.. Not as a regular Polish soldier. So then,he was sent to a POW labor camp; which saved his life. The others were sent back to Poland,where they were almost certain to face death. | GOOD:
2: BAD: | Everything bad started happening for Shep six months before the war ever started. He was drafter into the Polish army, in February 1939. The Jews lived on one side of the street & the Poles lived on the other side. His Polish accent wasn't that great so the Polish soldiers laughed at him.
3: UNIQUE: | In 1983,they had a gathering of 18,000 Holocaust survivors. For 18,000 they didn't just get a congressman or senator..they got the President. :)
