Jozef Bryf memoir

Document | Accession Number: 2011.142.1

Consists of one CD containing the handwritten memoirs, in Yiddish, of Jozef Bryf. The memoirs, written in the 1980s, cover the period of 1920-1980 and describe Mr. Bryf's childhood in Łaskarzew, Poland, the German bombardment of Warsaw in 1939, and escaping with his future wife, Hanna Bleiwais, into the Soviet occupied territories. In 1941, the couple was deported to Siberia for forced labor, but after a year, moved to Tashkent, where they spent the war. After the liberation of the area, they moved back to Poland, from which they escaped in 1946 and ultimately joined family in France.
