Hear Holocaust survivor Jack Meister tell his inspiring story of survival.
Jack was born in Kielce, Poland in 1928. Jack remembers when the Nazis came, when he was just 11, and that was the end of his education. In 1941 Jack and his family were sent to the Kielce ghetto where Jack was ordered into forced labour. He was transferred to Radom labour camp in 1942, and was later incarcerated in Buchenwald, Auschwitz and Buna concentration camps.
At the age of 18, in April 1945, Jack was liberated by American soldiers. He spent two years being rehabilitating in Switzerland before immigrating to Australia at the end of 1949.
