Plaque at site of Blizyn labor camp in Poland

Our survivor Siggy Boraks survived a year and sixteen months at the Nazi labor camp in Blizyn, Poland. There were both men and women prisoners in this camp. The majority were Jewish. The other prisoners were Polish. The plaque on the site of the former camp does not mention Jews, reflecting the intense anti-Semitism of the post-war period in Poland. There was little willingness to recognize Jewish suffering.
