    Josef Schwartz
    In October 1944, Josef Szwarc (b. November 17, 1921 in Lodz, Poland), his two brothers, Pinchas and Leib, and their father, Jakub Szwarc, were deported to Sachsenhausen concentration camp. They survived World War II. Josef's mother, Chaja Fajga, survived as well, but Ester Ita, a sister, who was born in 1919, was killed in Auschwitz-Birkenau in August 1944.
