Chotkow. Berkowitz, as-
signed to work for one of the
Gestapo leaders, was moved
to quarters outside the
ghetto, from which he and
his mother and sister man-
aged to escape in 1942.
For about nine months,
the three wandered from
town to town, living on re-
fuse and food that had been
put out for animals.
In 1944, Berkowitz, his
mother and his sister were
deported to Auschwitz,
where the mother eventu-
ally was exterminated.
From March to December,
Berkowitz was subjected to
the "experimentation" on
twins of Dr. Mengele.
On Jan. 27, 1945, Au-
schwitz was liberated by the
Russians and Berkowitz
was freed. He returned to
his home town briefly and
then was in several dis-
placed persons' camps until
1948, when he and his sister
came to the United States.
He now travels exten-

The dinner will be held 6

Following the Kolomai
massacre, Berkowitz was
moved with his family

towns and villages. His
father and brother were
executed in the ghetto in
