In September of that same year, Alexander escaped, running through the cornfield and eventually making his way back to Sineshti, where a family allowed him to live in their cellar for three years.
Alexander was liberated by the Soviet army, and in September 1944, he was reunited with his parents. All other members of the family, including his brother, were killed. Tragically, just a year after liberation, Alexander’s mother died of tuberculosis.
In 1980, Alexander immigrated to Regina, Canada. Alexander is a member of Beth Tzedec Congregation and contributes to many charities. He and his wife, Mara, are the proud parents of daughter, Mila, grandparents of one, and greatgrandparents of two.
