Survived Holocaust
The Wojdylaks farmed at Zielonka, near Przemysl. In July 1942 the Germans formed the Przemysl ghetto from which they deported the Jews to Belzec. Dr. Marek Turkel, his wife Diana and their two children (14 and 8), the lawyer Aleksander Kronberg and his wife, Mundek Fast-Falat and his wife Stefania and Jakub Reinbach came to the Wojdylaks for shelter. All of them survived and most of them left Poland. Jakub Reinbach, who lives now in Przemysl, confirmed the saving of these nine (9) people, who maintained cordial contacts with the Wojdylaks.
