My name is George Lubow, I was born in the small town of Nowogrodek; in what was once Eastern Poland, now Byelorussia.I am a retired businessman and Holocaust survivor. For more than 35 years I was in the dress business. In 1957, I opened my first dress shop in South Pasadena. A year later I opened my second dress shop in Montrose. I met a cross section of the local population. In the process of selling dresses, I listened to many of my customer's problems. In return, I told them my story. They urged me to write a book about my wartime experiences. I started writing in longhand about 25 years ago. My neighbor, Peggy Hardaker offered to type my story. She kept after me to write more. It was painful for me to bring back old memories. But, at the time many letters to the editor of the Los Angeles Times were distorting the truth about the Holocaust. I felt obligated to write this book so future generations would know and remember the horrors. The generation of survivors is passing on. Each of us has a story to tell. We must also remember that in the darkest hour there were Righteous Gentiles who risked their lives to save us. This is my story.
