Polish Neo-Nazis Discover Their Jewish Roots
A married couple have revealed how they turned their backs on their violent neo-Nazi past – after discovering they were both Jewish.
The one-time skinheads grew up as part of a hate-filled white power gang in Warsaw, the capital of Poland and once the site of the largest Jewish ghetto in Nazi-occupied Europe.
But now they are devout members of an Orthodox Jewish synagogue.
The truth about their roots had been buried by their parents to escape persecution from first the Germans and then the Soviet-controlled post-war government.
Even when the couple started spewing anti-Semitic slogans and attacking Jews, their parents still kept silent about their heritage.
