Henry Weil testimony
- Credit Line
- United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Collection, Gift of Joan Litt
Consists of one testimony, four pages, written by Henry Weil in 1995 (and revised in 2001.) In the testimony, Weil describes his experiences in the Polish Army, in Kraków, Lwow, the Wolbrom ghetto, and the Stalowa Wola forced labor camp. After escaping forced labor and returning to Kraków, he was sent to Płaszów where he worked for the Schindler Emaillewaren Fabrik. When Płaszów was liquidated and the men temporarily sent to Gross-Rosen prior to the factory's move to Brünnlitz, Weil changed places with his brother Wovek in order to save him. Wovek began to work for Schindler, while Henry spent several months in Gross-Rosen, Buchenwald, and was liberated on a death march from Sonnenburg. He reunited with Wovek in Hof. Also includes copies of photographs of Weil, one ca. 1945, and one ca. 1991.
