The Watchmakers: A Story of Brotherhood, Survival, and Hope

Hosted By: American Jewish University

Harry Lenga was born to a family of Chassidic Jews in Kozhnitz, Poland. The proud sons of a watchmaker, Harry and his two brothers, Mailekh and Moishe, studied their father’s trade at a young age. Upon the German invasion of Poland, when the Lenga family was upended, Harry and his brothers never anticipated that the tools acquired from their father would be the key to their survival. Under the most devastating conditions imaginable—with death always imminent—fixing watches for the Germans in the ghettos and brutal slave labor camps of occupied Poland and Austria bought their lives repeatedly. Author and Harry’s son, Scott Lenga, and AJU’s Michael Berenbaum will discuss more than a decade of interviews with Harry Lenga, for a deep look into the honest first-person account of his his inspiring life before, during, and after the war.
