Maralyn Turgel tells the story of how her Polish born father survived the Holocaust as a teenage slave labourer, in several camps, including Buchenwald concentration camp; how he was taken on a ‘death journey’ on cramped cattle trucks to Matthausen Concentration camp from where he was eventually liberated by the Americans. She tells of how a strong healthy young man transitioned into a walking skeleton and how many times he stared into the eyes of death. Sam was one of the Windermere Boys who settled in Manchester. Maralyn uses her own words plus filmed testimony from her father to tell this extremely moving account of her father’s survival.
