Poland: My Grave in Treblinka | European Journal

7 years ago152 views

Alex Werber of Tel Aviv never wanted to take this trip: to Poland, where much of his family died in Nazi concentration camps. But he couldn't refuse his mother's last wish.Alex Werber's mother narrowly survived the Holocaust. But in her will she wrote that her ashes should be strewn in Treblinka extermination camp, so that she could be close to her murdered relatives. Her son Alex was two years old when his parents left Poland in 1956. They left because of their horrible memories, but also because anti-Semitism was still virulent in Poland. For Alex Werber, the trip into the past was not easy. But his mother's last will demands that he find reconciliation with the land of his birth, Poland.
