Mordechai Cepelovic: hist testimony about the Siauliai ghetto and deportation to camps.
June 2, 1949; one page (in Kaplan’s handwriting), in Hebrew.
Cepelovic’ his wife and mother - in - law remained in the ghetto until its liquidation as punishment for having hidden two brothers from Riga. Paryzer* appointed Cepelovic and Zisale from Klaipeda (Memel) to be responsible for the 120 Jews who remained in the ghetto, to help with its evacuation. The sick, some 30 in number, remained in the hospital with the pediatrician Goniondaski and his wife. After some five days the patients were taken to a nearby grove and slaughtered there. All the rest, among them the doctor, were taken to the Kaiserwald camp. For several weeks they were put to work at various forced labor tasks in the camp until they were taken by ship to the Stutthof camp. From there they were taken to the Buchenwald camp. From there they were sent out on a death march to the Terezin (Theresienstadt) camp, and were liberated on May 8, 1945.
