    Felix Librach
    Felix (Shraga) Librach was born in 1919 in Halle, Germany, to Avram (Abram/Adolf) Librach (1891-1941) and Gutta (Gitel/Gizela) Librach (1891-1942). He emigrated to Palestine in 1935 with Youth Aliyah, worked in agriculture on a kibbutz, and became a citizen in 1945. His German-born sister Sophie (1917- ?) also emigrated to Palestine with Youth Aliyah. Their brother Martin (1915-1965) was born in Łódź, active in socialist and Zionist groups in Germany, expelled into Poland in 1938, and emigrated to Palestine illegally in 1939. Avram and Gutta Librach were also expelled into Poland during the Polenaktion with Martin in October 1938 because they had been born in Widawa and Łódź before moving to Halle and never obtained German citizenship. Avram died in the Łódź ghetto in 1941, and Gutta was killed at Chełmno in 1942.
