We Fought Like Lions: A Polish Jewish Soldier’s Odyssey Through the Holocaust: Warsaw Uprising to Nazi POW

by Gary Lelonek

Charlie Lelonek was declared missing in action during the Warsaw Uprising and his family mourned his death. 50 years later to the day, he died surrounded by his family. Charlie saved his parents and siblings from the Nazis and then joined the fight against the Nazis. This story is shared by Charlie, in the form of an interview that was uncovered by his grandson, Dr. Gary Lelonek. The interview was discovered in a museum archive, it had been missing for over 30 years. Gary’s research verifies the accuracy of Charlie’s account and places it within a broader historical context. In this book, you’ll have the opportunity to read in the family’s letters their feelings at the realization on the death of 6 million Jews, the establishment of the State of Israel and the condition of the survivors. Although Charlie’s is an individual’s account, his story joins the historical record of Jews who fought against the Nazis and demonstrated incredible strength, resilience, and patriotism.
