JHC Holocaust Survivor Talk: David Prince

David and his twin brother, Henry, were born in Lodz, Poland in 1925. Their happy childhood came to an abrupt end when the Germans marched into Lodz on 8 September 1939.

In early February 1940, the Germans established a ghetto and David’s family was relocated there. They all worked long hours. Living conditions were horrendous.

In August 1944, the Prince family was put on the last transport out of the Lodz ghetto and taken to Auschwitz in cattle trains. The twins and their father were separated from their mother and never saw her again. They were sent to work in Friedland camp from where the three were liberated in 1945.
