GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – Antoni Dobrowolski, age 108, died in Debno, Poland, a historian at the Auschwitz-Birkenau memorial and museum said Monday 22 October. Dobrowolski was a teacher who gave secret classes, when education was banned by the Germans who had taken over Poland in the second world war. He was arrested in 1942 and sent to the concentration camp, where he lived until he was moved to two other camps. He was freed when the camps’ prisoners were liberated in 1945. He returned to teaching after the war.
