Hrubieszow, a God forsaken little town, on the South-East border of Poland, comes into the limelight thanks to a special person, whose name is Henry Orenstein.
He was only nineteen years old, when his life turned into an unforgettable hell, by being forced and led, consecutively, through five concentration camps, where the only outlet, were the gas chambers. He survives the Nazi craze, thanks to his extraordinary wit, intelligence and sheer luck.
