Levsei Weinrob was a deputy general in a tank unit which passed through Poland on its way to conquer Berlin. In January of 1945, his unit entered the concentration camps and liberated the prisoners, the vast majority of whom were Jews. Weinrob and the soldiers of his unit assisted the prisoners with food and medical care, and some of the soldiers stayed behind to look after them.
The tank unit continued on its way, and was among the first to arrive in Berlin. Several weeks after the battles ended, Weinrob received an order from Marshall Jockov to assist the Jewish survivors who had marched towards Stettin to board ships headed for Palestine.
At the end of the war, Weinrob received the USSR award for bravery. Two years ago, he emigrated to Israel and lived with his family in Givat Shmuel.
