A prisoner's jacket from
Auschwitz, a food bowl from Treblinka, metal pins worn by the Jewish
ghetto police, hundreds of postcards from concentration camps and a
yellow patch – these are just some of the items exhibited by Holocaust
surviving couple Yaakov and Irena Wodzislawski, who have dedicated their
lives and private home to the commemoration of the mass slaughter of
Jews by the Nazis during World War II.
The two were recently informed that they had won a lifetime achievement award on behalf of Yad Vashem,
Holocaust memorial museum and archive, but Yaakov died several days later and will not get to hold the prize in his hands.
