  • MA in economics, a young man. In the ghetto he administered, together with J. Ringelblum, the Supply Section of the Centos (the Central Organization for Orphan Care) . For a short period of time, he was a Jewish Police (Order Service) officer. He crossed to the 'Aryan side' and went to the same bunker (in Grojecka Street), in which the Ringleblum family stayed. In the hideout he wrote two important monographs: one about socio-economic problems in the ghetto, and the other one - about smuggling against a background of the situation in the ghetto. Both monographs survived until the end of war. Pasensztajn, as the Ringelblum family and other dwellers of the bunker, were shot on the ruins of the ghetto.
