Blanket that the Druks family took with them when they fled Oswiecim

They eventually reached Eretz Israel in late 1942 via Uzbekistan and Iran

The Druks family from Oswieçim – Iro, Lucja and their two small children, nine year old Adam and four year old Elinoar – fled eastwards to Lvov when the Germans invaded Poland. Lucja’s parents, Joachim (Hayim) and Josephina (Pepi) Liebermann, fled with them. Iro Druks’ family lived in Vienna and were deported from their homes to death camps during the war.

A blanket that the Druks family used to cover themselves at night. During the day it served as a sack to quickly transport their belongings when they travelled from place to place
