Abstract

Oral history interview with Holocaust survivors Henry Zyndorf and Sylvia Zyndorf. Mr. Zyndorf was born in Poland in 1925. His parents owned a bakery in a town very close to the German border. In 1942 he was taken to the first of three labor camps. In 1945, after a nine-week death march, he arrived at Buchenwald, ten days before it was liberated. Mrs. Zyndorf was born in Poland in 1930. Her parents owned a grocery store in Bodzanow. In 1941 her family was deported first to the Soldau concentration camp, then to the Czestochowa ghetto in 1942, and eventually to the HASAG concentration camp in Czestochowa, where she was liberated by the Soviets in 1945. After being liberated, Mr. and Mrs. Zyndorf were both at a displaced persons camp near Bamberg, Germany, where they met and got married. They came to the United States in 1949, eventually settling in Toledo, where they owned a bakery. In 1982 they moved to Tampa, where they started another bakery. The first section of this interview is with Mr. Zyndorf, the second with Mrs. Zyndorf, and the third with the two of them together.
