Three survivors of the Treblinka uprising walk along a street in Warsaw after the war.

Pictured from left to right are Abraham Kolski, Shaya Lachman, and Henoch Brener. After participating in the Treblinka uprising, they escaped from the camp with six other prisoners, and found temporary refuge in the nearby forest. After several days in the forest, they encoutered a local farmer, Stanislaw Pogorzelski, who agreed to take them in. Stanislaw and his elderly father Julian hid the group of nine for nearly a year, until liberation, and provided food and medical care . On July 8, 1969, Yad Vashem recognized Julian Pogorzelski and his son Stanislaw Pogorzelski as Righteous Among the Nations.
