Jack Klinger, France

Jack Klinger was born in Poland in 1920. As a child he wandered with his family, first to Germany and with the rise of the Nazis to power, to Spain and from there to France. In May 1940, Nazi Germany invaded France. Jack was imprisoned in Paris and was transferred to the Pithiviers concentration camp for Jews, where he stayed for 14 months until he was deported in June 1942 to Auschwitz, where he worked in administrative capacity in the camp’s headquarters for two and a half years. Due to his work, various reports on mass murder in the camps passed through his hands. He was transferred to other camps before being liberated. At the end of the war he was liberated by the Americans in Bavaria. He testified in trials against Nazi criminals, among them the commanding officer of Auschwitz. (6:21)
