Jack Mandelbaum

Jack Mandelbaum grew up in the port city of Gdynia, Poland, where his father owned a fish cannery and where the family, including his mother and two siblings, lived in a large apartment near the beach.  Jack was deported to a series of forced labor facilities after his deportation from Dzialoszyce. After his liberation, Jack located his only two surviving relatives before immigrating to the United States with his Uncle Sigmund in 1946. Since 1975, he has spoken frequently of his Holocaust experiences to school and community groups. In 1993, with his friend, Isak Federman, he founded the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education.
