Transcript of Tibor
by Jason Jean
The soldiers from America came to the concentration camp and freed every one. The reason Tibor was in that camp is because he was a jewish person.
Tibor was sent on the most grueling and life threatening missions in the army mostly because he was jewish, but also he was very brave and willing tg to fight for his country and honor.
When he was released he made a promise to go to the army and repay them for what they did to save them from the concentration camp. He knew that going back would take a lot of courage and strength to protect his citizenship.

In the 1980s, nearly 30 years after he had been discharged, Rubin's army friends began protesting the Army's inaction and unfilled promises to recognize Rubin's bravery.

"Some of them gave up, and some of them prayed to be taken," Rubin remembers. He held pep talks, reminding the Soldiers of the families awaiting their safe return home. He stole food for them to eat, nagged them to "debug" themselves of the relentless lice and even nursed them through sickness.
Tibor "Ted" Rubin was born on June 18,1929. When rubin was 15 he was placed in a concentration camp only because he was jewish. The troops had second thoughts when the captain said to everyone "None of you will survive.
