George was born in Warsaw, Poland. As an infant he was thrown over the barbed-wire fence of the Vilna Ghetto into the waiting arms of Halinka, the daughter of a man that worked for George’s father. Risking their own lives, they hid George for the remainder of the war taking him out into the community and to church as if he was their own.
