MAX SALOMON, JEWISH POLICEMAN
Czestochowa, Poland
1936

 

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.
