Could you tell me your name please and where you are from.

A...Abraham Mondry.

And where are you from?

I am born in Poland, Mlawa.


And Mlawa, this is about 200 kilometers from Königsberg.

In the Polish corridor?

Yeah, right in the corridor, right where the war starts, right...the corridor.

Uh-huh, c...could you tell me what you remember, a little bit about life in Mlawa before the war started?

Before the war, well I come from a very religious family.


It was strict religious, you know. I mean, I wasn't, but my family had to keep up.
