In honor of #RoshHashanah5781 I am sharing this shofar (ram’s horn), made in the forced labor camp Skarżysko-Kamienna (belonged to German HASAG concern), in southeastern Poland, during World War II.
c. 25,000-30,000 Jews were brought here and between 18,000-23,000 perished. Image
Rabbi Yitzhak Finkler, the Grand Rebbe of Radoszyce, asked Moshe Winterter, also an inmate in the camp, to make a shofar for the holy observance of Rosh Hashana in 1943 (5704). In spite of the danger to his own life, Moshe created one. Image
On Rosh Hashanah morning, they were able to keep the mitzvah of blowing the shofar.

Moshe Winterter (photo) survived the Holocaust. You can see his shofar at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. He managed to keep the shofar with him, but when he was sent to Buchenwald, it was left behind Image
