Joe was born in 1922 in Kowal, Poland. At the beginning of the war, his family lived in Blonie, Poland and then were sent to the Warsaw Ghetto. Joe’s father bribed some guards to let Joe and two of his siblings escape back to Kowal. This was the last time he saw the rest of his family. From Kowal, Joe was sent to different concentration camps including Auschwitz-Birkenau. Towards the end of the war, he was sent 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.
