Holocaust Survivor Talk: Joseph Alexander

Joseph Alexander was born in 1922 in Kowal, Poland. In late 1940, he and his family were transported to the Warsaw Ghetto. Joseph’s father bribed some guards to let Joseph and two of his siblings escape back to Kowal. This was the last time Joseph saw the rest of his family.

From Kowal, Joseph was sent to different concentration camps including Auschwitz-Birkenau. After the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, he was sent from Auschwitz back to the Warsaw Ghetto to clean up the destruction’s aftermath. As the Polish Home Army advanced towards Warsaw, Joseph was sent to camps in Germany, and then on a death march. He was liberated by American troops in 1945. He immigrated to the United States in 1949 where he married and had two children.
