Nahum Bogner

Nahum Bogner

Dr. Nahum Bogner is the only member of his family to survive the Holocaust. Nahum was born in 1933 in Berezhany, Poland (now Ukraine). In 1941 Nahum’s family fled to Pomorzany, where they stayed till November 1942, when they were incarcerated in the Przemyslany ghetto. During an Aktion in the ghetto in December 1942, almost 3000 Jews were caught and deported to the Bełżec extermination camp. Nahum and his parents managed to escape from the train to the forests.  Nahum’s father was murdered on May 1943, and his mother was caught in the forest and murdered by Ukrainian nationalists in early January 1944. Bogner immigrated to Eretz Israel in 1947, and in 1951 he joined the IDF. Bogner received his MA and PhD degrees from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Nachum Bogner is a member of the Commission for the Designation of the Righteous Among the Nations.
