  • JBD's friends, in the ghetto they had phial with poison. They survived the war, later lived in Ireland. When in 1986, Mr Frumkin fell ill with cancer and was on his death bed, his wife poisoned herself taking the liquid she kept from the ghetto times.
    They hid on the 'Aryan side' behind a fake wall. When during the Warsaw Uprising the house was taken over by a Home Army (Armia Krajowa - AK) unit, the Frumkin family went to the yard to help. However, they were recognised as Jews and the soldiers started to taunt unequivocally. So the Frumkin family returned behind their wall.
