Warsaw Ghetto Uprising Fighter Passes Away in Israel

FSWC Reports:

From ynetnews.com:

He was a disciplined fighter in the eyes of his Polish commanders. A boy who dared to face a German officer and disguised himself as a Christian; a “classic story of survival and Zionism,” in the eyes of his son.

Holocaust survivor Peretz ‘Pavel’ Hochman, a fighter in the Warsaw Ghetto uprising against the Germans, died of cancer on Sunday. He was 86. Next week he was supposed to light a torch at Yad Vashem’s Holocaust Memorial Day ceremony. His widow will light the candle in his place.
