A Journey of Survival: A Young Boy’s Odyssey from Hungary through Auschwitz and Jaworzno to Eretz Yisrael

Asher Bar-Nir


Born in 1930, Asher Bar-Nir and his parents were moved into the ghetto of Nyίregyhaza, Hungary, when the Nazis occupied their small town in the spring of 1944. The young teenager found himself alone in Auschwitz and then in the Jaworzno forced labor camp. Liberated in March 1945, after having survived a “death march”, Asher made the long, arduous return to Hungary, he joined the Zionist youth movement Hashomer Hatzair. In May 1948, after being part of the Exodus, Asher reached Israel.
