Come for a bagel and shmear and to hear Julian Bussgang’s amazing Trail of Hope story.
At the age of 14 Julian Bussgang and his family escaped Poland at the outbreak of the war. Ultimately, they ended up in Palestine. At age 18, Julian became one of the youngest soldiers in the Free Polish Army to complete the officer's training program. He fought in the Battle of Monte Cassino that cost 55,000 Allied soldiers their lives.
Julian immigrated to the United States in 1949 where he studied at MIT and Harvard University. He received his PhD in Applied Physics and worked at MIT's Lincoln Labs and RCA before starting his own radar and communications technology company.
In 1994, his own story “Haunting Memories” was published in We Shall Not Forget! Memories of the Holocaust. With his wife, Fay, he translated from Polish to English two volumes of The Last Eyewitnesses: Children of the Holocaust Speak. These books contain testimonies by different authors highlighting experiences during World War II. In 2010, he translated from Polish to English the book, Polish Jew-Polish Soldier: 1939–1945, a collection of essays published in the UK in 1945 by a Jewish chaplain of the Polish Army 2nd Corps. Mr. Bussgang and his wife Fay have dedicated their lives to repairing the Jewish-Polish connection.
