David Toren, who fled Poland with other Jewish children, passed away on April 19 as a result of COVID-19. On Kristallnacht, young David watched the destruction. The next morning, his father was imprisoned in Buchenwald. Upon his return, Toren’s father worked to arrange passage for his son on an August 1939 Kindertransport headed to Sweden, shortly before the Germans invaded Poland. It would be the last time Toren saw his parents.
