THE JEWISH NEWS

when he arrived in the United
States in the late 1940s, he fo-
cused on another goal — success,
American style.
He hasn't looked back very of-
ten.
Mr. Katz is somewhat reluc-
tant to talk about being a sur-
vivor. Actually, he'd rather talk
about the thrill of buying produce
each day or the direction of the
stock market, rather than how
he once rigged a bridge with dy-
namite and blew apart 45 Nazi
trains. His memories remain in
a tightly bound scrapbook which
he seldom opens. The voices of
his father, mother, brother and
sister are sometimes too painful
to recall.
From his perch behind his sec-
ond-floor office window over-
looking the Produce Palace floor,
Mr. Katz observes the customers
and keeps track of which items
are selling. Meanwhile, Mr.
Yarsike works the floor, balances
the personnel and inventory and
prepares a list of items to buy
during his trek to the Produce
Terminal in the morning.
It's been a long time since he's
gone door to door.
"It's all special," Mr. Yarsike
said of his business. "There's
something about produce com-
ing from the ground. There's a
respect for nature, the farmer,
for God. We wake up and thank
God for our health and being able
to get out of bed and do some-
thing we love." ❑

ticed a "for lease" sign in the win-
dow of a large warehouse space,
which had been neglected and
nearly condemned. At the time,
Mr. Katz was negotiating to buy
and sublease the property. Soon
thereafter, Mr. Katz discarded
the notion of a nonworking re-
tirement, bought the shopping
center and opted for a silent part-
nership with Mr. Yarsike. He
was back in the produce busi-
ness.
Today, Mr. Katz can be seen
at the Produce Palace unloading
the crates from semis, mopping
the floors, or corralling the shop-
ping carts in the parking lot.
"His energy and passion for
the business is inspiring," Mr.
Yarsike said. "When we walk
through the market, he's always
three or four steps ahead of me."
Moving at top speed just might
be the only pace for Mr. Katz, a
Bloomfield Hills resident. He not
only runs his business that way
— he survived the onslaught of
the Nazis by sheer ingenuity and
guts.
Today, he has become more
philosophical about his days as
a youth when, as a member of
the underground resistance in
Poland, he fought alongside
Russian soldiers against the in-
vading Germans.
"My experience is greater than
my education," he said. "I just
wanted to get somewhere."
Simple survival may have
been his initial goal during the
Nazi occupation of Poland, but

Glieberman is no
dreamer, but he is
something of a pioneer.
His Novi company,
Crosswinds Communities,
is about to launch a major
residential development in
downtown Detroit — the
first for-sale housing pro-
ject in the lower Woodward
corridor since the 1930s.
Woodward Place at
Brush Park, located north
of I-75 between Beaubien
and Woodward, will fea-
ture 562 Victorian town

ready, 125 interested buy-
ers are on a waiting list,
Mr. Glieberman said.
He expects the 2-bed-
room units, which include
a 2-car garage and bay
windows, to be ready for
occupancy next fall. They
