West Delray · For six months in 1940, Morris Friebaum roamed Poland’s countryside, hoping to escape the German soldiers looking for Jews in the cities. But as he approached Radom, he was hit with a fever and passed out. About two weeks later, he woke up in a hospital for Jews. A train ride to a concentration camp awaited him.

He spent more than four years in different camps until he was liberated May 1, 1945.
