Here is the account of Jared Kushner’s grandmother and grandfather’s survival story in Jared’s own words.
Here is a quote from Jared’s article.
I am the grandson of Holocaust survivors. On December 7, 1941—Pearl Harbor Day—the Nazis surrounded the ghetto of Novogroduk, and sorted the residents into two lines: those selected to die were put on the right; those who would live were put on the left. My grandmother’s sister, Esther, raced into a building to hide. A boy who had seen her running dragged her out and she was one of about 5100 Jews to be killed during this first slaughter of the Jews in Novogrudok. On the night before Rosh Hashana 1943, the 250 Jews who remained of the town’s 20,000 plotted an escape through a tunnel they had painstakingly dug beneath the fence. The searchlights were disabled and the Jews removed nails from the metal roof so that it would rattle in the wind and hopefully mask the sounds of the escaping prisoners.
My grandmother and her sister didn’t want to leave their father behind. They went to the back of the line to be near him. When the first Jews emerged from the tunnel, the Nazis were waiting for them and began shooting. My grandmother’s brother Chanon, for whom my father is named, was killed along with about 50 others. My grandmother made it to the woods, where she joined the Bielski Brigade of partisan resistance fighters. There she met my grandfather, who had escaped from a labor camp called Voritz. He had lived in a hole in the woods—a literal hole that he had dug—for three years, foraging for food, staying out of sight and sleeping in that hole for the duration of the brutal Russian winter.
You may also have read the recent news story, cited above, which tells about how the family of Donald Trump’s Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner, survived the Holocaust by living in a hole in the ground in Poland. Close, but no cigar.
In the news article, Jared Kushner then went on to describe how his grandmother escaped the ghetto of Novogroduk and made it to the woods, where she joined the partisan Bielski Brigade and met his grandfather, who [had] escaped a labor camp.
The family of Donald Trump’s son-in-law was hiding with the Bielski Brothers. The Bielski Brothers were some really bad dudes, who fought the Nazis as Jewish partisans, which was against the law.
There was a movie, made a few years ago, which told the story of the Bielski Brothers. I saw this movie. It is not a pretty story. You can read about the movie on Wikipedia:
Update, Wednesday, 11:40 a.m.
I just listened to a story about Jared Kushner on the news. I learned that he is 35 years old and that he is currently on the “transition team” although he has “no political experience” just like his father-in-law Donald Trump, who has no political experience.
I learned that, just like his father-in-law, he does not pay taxes. Jared’s father did not pay taxes either. Now you know how to become rich and famous — just don’t pay taxes.
