About Mordecai Chmura

Mordecai Chmura, a leading Zionist in the town, although his children were not in the transport, and being older, left his family and went over to the small group of children all under ten years old about to be deported from Pabianice. As he was led away with them, 'this proud Jew' a witness recalled, 'he was singing Hatikvah'. The anthem of hope. All were taken to Chelmno and gassed, on 17 May 1942.
