Good Jew graphic GOOD JEW
the Personal History of Henrik Altman As Told By Him

by Frank Blocker and Murray Scott Changar

Teenager Henrik Altman escaped from a concentration camp for the Warsaw ghetto and familiar faces. He found it burned and his people gone. What happens next is unthinkable: He purposely got himself caught so he would not be alone. "You couldn't be a good Jew and survive a thing like that," he says. In 1985, from his Midwestern American den, he's far enough away to tell his story—or so he thought.
