The Forgotten Black Soldiers
Black men and women who gave their lives for America
Israel Meir Lau was born in 1937 in Piotrkow Trybunalski Poland. At age five, most of the city’s Jews, including Lau’s parents, were deported to the extermination camp known as Treblinka, where the Nazis would go on to murder 925,000 Jews. Four of my own cousins all under the age six were killed there.
