1943 5703 THE WAR YEARS

Fleeing from Nazi persecution, the Rebbe slips into the Bochnia ghetto incognito. Avoiding Nazi ‘aktions’ he is spirited in turn from Bochnia to Krakow and back to Bochnia. His Chassidim attempt in vain to keep his identity secret, as the “Wunder Rabbiner” was on the Nazis ‘most wanted’ list. But even the most callous Nazi collaborators fall under his spell and helped keep the Rebbe safe, to survive and eventually escape the ghetto.
