Exclusive interview with Ron Unger

Especially for us Ron (Romek) Unger, now living in the USA, recorded a video-interview about what role Madritsch played in his and his family's life. Ron's Father, Moses (Moniek) Unger and Leah (Lotka) Unger, lived in Tarnów even before the war. Moses had his workshop and a shop with gramophones, bicycles, typewriters and sewing machines in Walowa Street. As a little boy, Ron learned from his father how to repair this type equipment, which proved useful when Julius Madritsch was looking for people to service sewing machines in his Tarnów factories.

Currently, Ron Unger lives in New York, USA. The recording was arranged by his daughter, Audrey Unger Reich, and it was Ron's grandson behind the camera. We would like to extend our thanks to both Audrey and Ron's grandson for helping us and for their participation in our project. Ron's words, uttered during this recording: "Without Madritsch, we would not be here ... I would not be here." have a special meaning in this context. We would like to invite you to watch the whole interview.

Exclusive interview with Margot Schlesinger

Mrs. Margot Schlesinger also agreed to give us an exlusive interview, in which she describes her life during the WWII and how she and her her husband, Cheskel, was employed at Julius Madritsch's factory in Tarnow and then in Cracow-Plaszow. When the news of the liquidation of the Plaszow camp was announced, Margot Schlesinger was entered onto the famous "Schindler's List". In her interview she tells not only about Julius Madritschu, but also about the manager of the Tarnow plant, Raimund Titsch, who after the war was also awarded the medal "Righteous Among the Nations" for helping the Jews to survive in those dark times.
Nowadays Mrs. Schlesinger lives in the US. The interview was recorded by her daughter, Regine Schlesinger, to whom we would like to express our deep thanks.
