„Tadeusz Pankiewicz’s memoirs are one of the most important testimonies to the history -and the tragic fate- of the Krakow Ghetto Jews”

” In 1941, Mr. Pankiewcz and other non-Jewish inhabitants of the ghetto in Krakow were ordered to leave, but the persuaded the Nazi administrators to allow him o stay there so that he could continue selling medicine. His pharmacy evolved into hiding place and a clearing house for escape information. Mr. Pankiewicz also created a secret vault under his pharmacy that was used o store Torahs and the other religious artefacts. He is believed to have been the only Polish non- Jew to survive the destruction of the ghetto by Germans in 1943″
