11-Year Old Swallowed Cyanide Capsule to Avoid Nazi Capture
The JC reports that a diary
written by an 11-year-old Jewish boy who swallowed a cyanide capsule to die, rather than be captured by Nazi officers he believed had come to raid the house he was hiding in, is to be donated to Yad Vashem.
Anthony Rudolf, the victim’s second cousin once removed, found the diary and is donating it to Yad Vashem. The boy’s name was Jerzyk Feliks Urman.
May he Rest In Peace.
