Journal Entry of a Subordinate Group Member 2 Journal Entry of a Subordinate Group Member I sit here in my apartment in the suburb of Detroit, Michigan called the city of Warren. The date is January 1, 2009. I work in a Jewelry store owned by my son. I sit here thinking about my life in Poland during World War II and thank God for the freedom granted to me here in the United States, the freedom to practice my culture and religion. Sitting here looking out the window and watching my grandchildren playing outside I have decided to write about my experiences in Poland so many years ago. You see I was never allowed to keep a diary or journal it would have been confiscated and used to prosecute me further as I am Jewish, and I wish to have an accounting of what I witnessed in my youth. A telling that will be read for many years to come even after I am gone. In 1939 the Jewish population in Poland was 3.35 million the largest in Europe, my family and I were included in that number because we called Poland home and on September 1st of that year the Nazis invaded Poland and the Soviet Union invaded the eastern end of Poland on September 17th (The History Place - The Holocaust Timeline, 1997). On September 29, 1939 the Nazis and the Soviets divided up Poland the result was that the population of Jews in Nazi controlled areas was two million (The History Place - The Holocaust Timeline, 1997). My life changed on the 19 th day of September and so did the lives of every Jew residing in Nazi occupied Poland.
