As God as My Witness
Author: Carl Rosenberg
Born in Wolanow, Poland, in 1915, Carl grew up in a small village west of Radom, where he lived with his parents, two brothers, and two sisters. Carl served in the Polish Army for two years, and in 1939 he was recalled to active duty as a machine gunner.
He survived the 1939 invasion of Poland, the German occupation, and almost two years in Auschwitz, as well as two auxiliary camps. Carl was liberated in May of 1945 by the US Third Army. In 1949 he immigrated to Omaha, Nebraska, where he opened a tailor shop.
This memoir is the culmination of a lifelong promise to his mother that if any of her children should survive they would tell the world their story so that the death and destruction inflicted by Nazi Germany upon the Jewish people would never be forgotten.
