By Jacob Randall David Abrams: A Holocaust Survivor David Abrams Liberation David was born December 8th of 1928. He was born in the town of Dej in Romania. He was born into a Jewish family and was Jewish his whole life. David had four sisters named Olga, Ethel, Liebe, and Irene. He also had three brothers and their names are Ezekiel, Yehuda, and Zev. When David was thirteen his hometown of Dej was turned into a non-Jewish community. During this time his town was run by the Hungarians and they passed the non-Jewish law which stated no Jew could own a business or employ non Jews. Soon after this the Jews were forced to wear a Star of David to show they were Jews. His hometown was turned into a ghetto.
