He fled to Kovno (now Kaunas), Lithuania and then to Mir, Soviet Union (now Belarus) where he joined other Jewish refugees at the Yeshivat Mir and traveled with them to Shanghai, China. Ruth Caspary escaped with her parents from Bublitz, Germany, (now Bobolice, Poland) to Shanghai where they opened a kosher restaurant. Abram and Ruth met when he visited her parents' restaurant in Shanghai as an inspector in 1942.
