My name is Yitzkhak"
I Survived: My name is Yitzkhak
Dr. Harry Butowksy shares the story of Holocaust Survivor and World War II veteran Yitzkhak Neiman. Born in 1912, Yitzkhak began life as a handyman's son in the rural village of Czuczewicze, on the eastern border of Poland. The town's Jewish community and gentile farmers lived together in relative harmony until the war came to them in 1941. One year later, almost every member of the Neiman family would be dead, and only Yitzkhak's conscription into the Russian Army would save his life. Mr. Neiman narrates his service in two armies, imprisonment in a Soviet work camp, and escape to the United States in stunning detail.
