    Siegmund Raszkin
    Siegmund (Zygmunt) Raszkin was born in Częstochowa, Poland, on March 15, 1924 to Izrael and Fajgla (née Weis) Raszkin. In September 1942, Siegmund was sent to the Rakov forced labor camp, where he seems to have remained until January 1945, when he arrived in Colditz. On January 20, 1945, Siegmund arrived in Buchenwald, where he was given prisoner number 116464. He was transferred to Wüste, a subcamp of Natzweiler, in March, and to Dachau in April. At the end of April, he was sent to Theresienstadt, where he was liberated. After liberation, he moved to the displaced persons camp in Bamberg, Germany, where he remained until his immigration to the United States on the SS Ernie Pyle, leaving Bremen on June 12, 1947. He settled in Jacksonville, FL. He and his wife Evelyn had two children and two grandchildren. He passed away in 1981.
