Shlomo Pearl, Poland & Germany

Shlomo Pearl was born in northern Germany in 1925, to a Jewish family that had emigrated from Russia. After the Nazis gained power the family moved to Lodz, Poland. With the outbreak of the war, Shlomo and his brother fled to the Soviet part of Poland. With the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, Shlomo was caught by the Germans, but he convinced the soldiers that he was a Volksdeutsche – an ethnic German. The 16 year-old boy remained with the unit as a translator, and participated in battle. As a minor he was sent to a Nazi German school where he remained until the end of the war.
