One last journey into the night

Israel Arbeiter had to go back — to Auschwitz where he barely survived, and Treblinka, where his parents were murdered. He went seeking peace, but found little of it.



The route
Between 1941 and 1945, Izzy Arbeiter survived six concentration camps before he was liberated in southwest Germany in 1945.
In 2012, Izzy traveled from his hometown in Poland to Stuttgart, Germany, revisiting some of the camps along the way, as well as Treblinka, where his parents were murdered.
