Jakob and Frieda
Salo, the second youngest son of the family flees to Berlin after the arrest of his father in September 1939.
But the arrest of Polish citizens is taking place throughout the Reich. On the 13th September, shortly after his arrival in Berlin, Salo is arrested and taken to Sachsenhausen and not long after to Neuengamme. He has to help build the camp.
On the 23rd October 1942 he is transferred to Auschwitz-Monowitz. In January 1945, as the Soviet army advances, Auschwitz is evacuated and the prisoners are taken on a "death march" to other camps. Salo survives and arrives at Dora-Mittelbau on 4th February 1945, where he works underground in the tunnels as a slave-labourer. Once again, Salo is moved in March/April 1945 to Belsen. British soldiers liberate the camp on the 15th April 1945.
After six years in concentration camp and forced labour Salo returns to Munich. He looks for his family and tries to emigrate to the USA.
