About Jozef Zwonarz

Jozef Zwonarz was a Polish mechanical engineer who lived in Lesko.

In his own home, without the knowledge of his wife and five children, he hid Jaffa and Norris Wallach, her brother Pinkas and her sister Anna, taken their 4 year old daughter out of Lesko on the eve of deportation to Zaslaw and found the child a home with a 'Polish uncle", Jan Kakol who lived in the forest.

Those whom Zwonarz saved were to honour his memory for the rest of their lives, and to remember how he would use his knowledge as a mechanical engineer, while 'repairing' Herman vehicles, to sabotage the vehicles.
