MAX SALOMON, JEWISH POLICEMAN
|Though it's difficult to distinguish in the above photo,
there is a Star of David affixed to his hat and the word
"Police" is written on the band on his left forearm.
Max Salamon was born Mordke Salamonski in Radziejow, Poland. He
was a prisoner in Czestochowa in the labor camp. Although the
family wasn't aware of it until this picture was found, he must
have been a policeman in the camp. He survived a forced march,
when one thousand men set out, and only 175 survived. He emigrated to Australia after the
war, married and had one
child. He died in 1964.
