Yad Vashem is sharing the special story of a last will and testament written by a Jewish concentration camp prisoner, on the anniversary of the mournful occasion.

On August 3, 1942, David Graber, aged 19, wrote his last will and testament. He buried it in the Oneg Shabbat archive in the Warsaw Ghetto. Learn more about the Oneg Shabbat archive here.

Yad Vashem is Israel’s Holocaust memorial and trust, committed to preserving the memory of those lost in the Shoah.
