Julian (Joel) Czerwonogora was born in the town of Wiszkow, Poland in 1907.

He joined Anders’ Army during World War II and came to Eretz Israel as a soldier. His brigade, the 1st Polish Independent Parachute Brigade fought under British Army command during the Allied invasion of Normandy. For his service in the field ambulance unit he received various medals, ribbons and badges that have been donated to Yad Vashem.

After his release from the army, Julian moved to London. His wife Dora, who had been forced to stay in the Soviet Union throughout the war, was only able to join him at war’s end. The couple immigrated to Israel in 1964.
