About Moshe Menachem Berger

Founded Retailer's Bank, Kleinhandlers Bank, to help Jewish small-scale merchants in Radomsko, Poland.

In 1939 he was serving as the elected president of the Radomsko Jewish community council. He was therefore ordered by the Nazi occupiers to organize a Judenrat and serve as its chairman. When he fell out of favor with the Nazis, he was forced to escape and eventually ended up in the Czestochowo Ghetto. He worked there as a slave laborer until he was shot to death while at work.
