Werner Schenk




Werner Schenk is from Luebeck, Germany. His family was arrested by the Gestapo many times but his father,  a specialist tool and die maker working on advanced military systems, was needed. After being alerted by a friend in the police department, he and his mother went into hiding with the help of nuns in the town’s hospital. Werner attended school with a false identity, protected by the principal. While his immediate family survived, 40 of his relatives were murdered in the camps.
