Ben Z. Redner was born in Lwow, Eastern Galicia. His position as a Jewish policeman offered him some privileges but also put him on the frontline of the German’s demands. Redner paints a detailed picture of the roundups, the search for food, the crowded housing and, most importantly, securing a job, which was crucial in order to receive Ausweise (ID cards) that provided certain rations and immunity from Aktionen. Redner’s story is an adaptation of his memoir, written two years after the war ended, making this a rare firsthand account of life in the Lwow Ghetto.
