Branded on My Arm and in My Soul
Abe Landau s near-idyllic life growing up in Wilczyn, Poland in the 1920s and 30s was filled with all the joys of youth attending cheder school, playing and picnicking with friends, working with his father and spending holidays with his loving family. Little did he know that his world would soon crumble around him. In 1940 the town s Jewish families were rounded up and transported to a ghetto in Zagorow. The following year, an SS man burst into Abe s home, grabbed him and threw him into the back of a truck bound for a labor camp in Inowroclaw.
