The story hidden behind

the home

We arrived to Sokołów Podlaski on Sunday on 22nd of June 2015. We saw that the old door was replaced by a new one. We were very lucky, because we found the old doorpost with mezuzah trace at the back yard. A resident of the building told us that the door was replaced on Friday and on Monday it would be taken to a garbage dump or burned. Hearing this, immediately we decided to save it and take it with us. We transported it by bus to Warsaw to display it at our warsaw office. The door frame was saved thanks to the help of Katarzyna Markusz.

the family

In the building at Wilczyńskiego 4 (former Rogowska Street) was a butcher’s shop, which belonged to Aaron Elster’s parents. After the World War II he wrote a book about his life “I Still See Her Haunting Eyes: The Holocaust & a Hidden Child Named Aaron”. He describes: “My parents have butcher’s shop on Rogowska street. Over the entrance there is a hand-painted sign showing carcass and chopper. My mother serves customers. At first she weighs portions, then adds some extra meat or bones. Our shop is unusuall, because we sell non-kosher meat. Our customers are not Jews.” Aaron and his sister, Irene were hid by Polish Family for two years until the War’s end. All of them survived War.
