Uziel Lichtenberg, Poland

Uziel Lichtenberg was head of the ken of the Zionist youth movement in Lodz. When the Germans invaded Poland in September 1939, Uziel was recruited for regular service in the Polish army. He participated in the battles and became a POW. He was freed and became one of the active members of the Hanoar Hazioni youth movement in Warsaw until March 1941, when he left on a mission to Slovakia in order to check the possibility of escaping and going to Palestine. He moved with his wife to Hungary, where they both were arrested and sent back to Slovakia. They were imprisoned once again and sent back to Budapest. His wife, Bluma, managed to go to Palestine, while Uziel was recruited for the labor battalions of the Hungarian army, before he was discharged. He left Hungary in the spring of 1944. (5:07)
