  • Handelsman
  • Industrialist, wanted by Gestapo in spring 1942. He hid, so his wife and eighteen-year-old son were captured. The son was released and shot by a guard’s post (wacha). Another version, on p. 44, concerns the son: he was born as a Christian, stayed on the 'Aryan side.' He was in Danilowiczowska Street and was escorted to Gesia Street. The escort didn't know where the prison is, so they brought him to the Judenrat. As it was 7 p.m., there was no body in there and Handelsman was killed outside the Judenrat building - April/May 1942.
