Goldstein, Jacob

Jacob Goldstein was born in Lodz Poland on April 12, 1928. Growing up he had 4 siblings, his older brother Ali, his younger brother Yossi, and his younger sister Ettel . The city of Lodz was the second largest city in Poland.  There was a population size of around 600 000, of which 250 000 were Jewish. Jacob lived in a mixed community. As the Shoah began, the Goldstein family decided to try to stick together for as long as they could, as they went through a series of ghettos and camps.  Unfortunately, Jacob, his dad and his uncle were the only ones to survive.  

Jacob visited us at Baycrest in January 2018, where a delegation of CHC2D students interviewed him for this project.
