 is a survivor of the Holocaust whose life was changed by the tragic events that occurred in Rokitno, Poland. The Gendelman family ran a grocery store and raised five children. The Russians first occupied the town and were soon replaced by the Germans, aided by the Poles and Ukrainians. In August 1942, at 18 years old, Mr. Gendelman’s family, along with hundreds of other Jews, were killed in the town square. He was fortunate and escaped from the Rokitno Ghetto, hiding in the forest for two years. Life began again for him when he arrived in Washington, DC in January 1949.
