• Rabbi Jacob Jungreis was born in Derecske, Hungary. His father was the rabbi of Szeged.
  • His family was deported to Auschwitz in June 1944.
  •  Unknowingly, the family had become part of the Kasztner group that was sent to Bergen-Belsen and ransomed to the Jewish-American community in December 1944 for $5 million.
  • The group then continued on to a Displaced Persons camp in Switzerland.
  • Rabbi Jungreis arrived in the United States in March 1947. He is presently the Rabbi of the Israel Center of Canarsie, Director of Yeshiva Ateres Yisroel Day School, and a member of the Museum of Jewish Heritage’s Speakers Bureau.
