    Biography
    Basia, Mayer and Fruma survived the war in Theresienstadt. Chava Mina and Feivel Friedman hid behind the false wall of a fireplace, prepared by their son-in-law, Meyer Katz, but were discovered during the liquidation of the small ghetto. Theodore Friedman's mother, Chana Szapiro, and her two children were shot in Ponary. Friedman himself was deported by the Soviets in 1940 to a labor camp in Archangelsk.
