son of auschwitz survivors reveals how he would hear bedtime stories about the holocaust

An author has given a powerful insight into what it was like growing up in the generation of children whose parents survived the Holocuast. 

Jerry Bagel, 67, from New Jersey, explains in the foreword of his new book The Numbers on My Parents’ Arms that as a child, his bedtime stories were horrific tales from his parents’ time at Auschwitz-Birkenau. 

He also reveals how he learned to count by using his parents’ concentration camp tattoos, and was told how his father lost a testicle during medical experiments by the Nazis.

The author said that his parents’ struggles meant they put even more pressure on him to be successful, and told how his parents said they’d ‘kill themselves’ if he did not marry a Jewish woman, which he did in the 1980s. 

The Numbers… is a striking retelling of the Holocaust using the stories his parents told him as materials, as well testimony from other survivors who opened up to Bagel about their most painful memories.

Speaking to Femail, Bagel, now a physician and professor, told of his upbringing in the shadow of his parents’ trauma, saying he had ‘felt impelled for many years to share this story out of not only Holocaust significance but also human interest.’

His mother, Helen, who sadly passed away a week ago, lost her sisters, parents and cousins in the camps. His father, Sam, who was married before the war, lost his wife and young child as well as all his brothers and parents. 

Sam and Helen Bagel changed their name upon immigrating to the United States, and the book addresses them as their birth names. Sam is Szlama and Helen is Chaja.

The Numbers… follows the couple from their lives before the war to their time in the camps and after Europe was liberated until their move to the US.

Bagel admitted he grew up feeling ‘ashamed’ of his parents, due to their thick accents and the fact they barely spoke any English, preferring to speak Yiddish at home. 

He was as young as seven when his parents started telling him stories about Auschwitz before he fell asleep at night.

‘So, my bedtime goes like this,’ he said, ‘My mother would say “I had a beautiful sister named Peyru, and they put me to the right and they put her to the left with my mother, and she said ‘I’ll never see my sisters again”.’ 

This scene is recounted in the book, when Chaja and her family undergo ‘selektion’ upon their arrival at Auschwitz-Birkenau, the process by which SS soldiers would pick the men and women strong enough to work and destined the old and weak, mothers and young children to the gas chamber.   

‘While other kids fell asleep to stories about bunnies and trains, my parents were telling me almost everything about what their lives had been like in Poland,’ he recalled.

‘My bedtime stories contained all the fantastical elements of the most frightening fairy tales. Like in Hansel and Gretel, an evil entity was attempting to lure innocent children into a scorching red oven.

‘But my parents’ tales weren’t mere words in a book, ending the way a child’s last words before bed should end—with a happy ending and a good night kiss. The characters in my parents’ stories did end up in the oven. And even more terrifying, they were my family.’

In another instance, Chaja told Jerry that she witnessed a baby being torn in half in front of his horrified mother.  

‘The nonplussed officer reached forward to grab the baby. Before he could touch it, the woman swatted his gloved hand away and clawed his face. Enraged, the officer clubbed her to the ground, simultaneously grabbing the baby by its clothing,’ Jerry wrote in The Numbers…

‘He carried the wailing baby at arm’s length, as if it was a piece of stinking garbage, turned it upside down with one tiny foot in each of his fists, and ripped the baby in two pieces.

Jerry said he used to feel ashamed about his parents because they did not speak English and were 'different' from others

‘Holding his gruesome trophy by its feet as blood dripped onto the snow, the guard sang a song about the blood of the Jews. The nearby dogs became excited by the smell of blood and began barking, their growls drowned out by the shrieks of the baby’s mother. 

‘The guard threw the flesh on the ground, marched back to the hysterical mother, and continued clubbing her. 

‘This is the moment Chaja lost her faith in God,’ Jerry concluded. 

Chaja faced unimaginable horrors in the camp, where she stayed a year. After the death of her mother and young sister Peyru, she had her other sister and her cousin by her side. 

However, when her sister took ill and was killed by the Germans, Chaja lost her will to live and grew suicidal. 

In the book, Bagel recounted how many women were driven to suicide and tried to taken their own lives by jumping on the camp’s electrical fences.

Meanwhile, his father Sam survived the camps by volunteering to do all the physical jobs the German would need Jewish prisoners to take on. 

Bagel reveals in the book that while Sam was among the men who were selected to be castrated and studied. 

As part of Nazi plans to keep Jews from procreating, thousands of men and women were castrated in the camps, often using radiation, or more barbaric techniques such as the ablation of their private parts.

Infections were common place after such procedures were performed and many men did not survive.  

WHAT WAS THE AUSCHWITZ CONCENTRATION CAMP?

Auschwitz was a concentration and extermination camp used by the Nazis during World War Two.

The camp, which was located in Nazi-occupied Poland, was made up of three main sites. 

Auschwitz I, the original concentration camp, Auschwitz II-Birkenau, a combined concentration and extermination camp and Auschwitz III–Monowitz, a labour camp, with a further 45 satellite sites.

Birkenau became a major part of the Nazis’ ‘Final Solution’, where they sought to rid Europe of Jews.  

An estimated 1.3 million people were sent to the camp, of whom at least 1.1 million died – around 90 percent of which were Jews. 

Since 1947, it has operated as Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, which in 1979 was named a World Heritage Site by Unesco.

While Bagel said his father never spoke of it, he confirmed in the book that Sam had lost one testicles during German experimentation.  

Growing up in the US to two parents who did not speak the language well and would only speak Yiddish at home, Bagel admitted he resented his parents for being ‘different.’

He recounted instances where, as a teenager, he would keep them from attending school functions because he was ashamed of them. 

He also opened up about his stern upbringing, revealing that his father would sometimes employ corporal punishments if Jerry disobeyed as a child. 

In spite of these harrowing experiences and having to share into his parents’ trauma, Bagel said writing The Numbers… helped him to reconnect with his father, who passed away in 1991. 

He also said in his mother’s eulogy that in spite of the traumatic experiences she endured at the camps and later in life, Helen was able to live a life full of happy moments.

prince harry shows off his freshly trimmed hair in new video for a charity walk

Prince Harry showed off a freshly trimmed hairstyle today as he shared a virtual message of support with those taking part in a charity walk.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, who is currently living in his $14 million Santa Barbara mansion, sent his best wishes to participants of the Trailwalker Relay 2020, which is a charity event in aide of The Gurka Welfare Trust and Oxfam.

After the official 2020 event was cancelled amid the Covid-19 crisis, the charities organised a ‘virtual’ version, asking teams to complete the 100km throughout the week, with fundraising going toward vulnerable communities struggling to cope with the virus. 

In a clip shared online, Prince Harry donned a dark green shirt and showed off a short haircut as he spoke about the significance of the charity event, calling Covid-19 ‘devastating and destructive’.

In the video clip, which was shared on the Trailwalker Instagram page, Prince Harry spoke of his ‘special connection to Gurkhas and Nepal’, explaining: ‘Almost five years ago, I travelled to Nepal to meet families and see first hand how the country was rebuilding after the devastating 2015 earthquake.

‘Buildings, temples, homes and entire villages had been completely demolished. 

‘It was clear despite everything the Nepalese faced, their spirit and resilience never weakened there was a clear sense of care and compassion for each other.’

He continued: ‘With Covid-19, the world is being pitted against a new challenge. One that is devastating and destructive in its own right and I am heartened to see that once again , the Nepalese spirit is unwavering.

‘In Afghanistan, I was honoured to serve alongside The Royal Gurkha Rifles. These soldiers showed me what they believe in; they showed me what their values are.’ 

He went on: ‘The Ghurka Welfare Trust and Oxfam are rallying together in incredibly difficult circumstances to help communities beat this virus and save lives.’   

The Duke went on to thank those taking part in the virtual relay, adding: ‘Doing this relay virtually is going to make it even more difficult than it already was, so you’re going to need to dig deep, physically and emotionally, to get you and your team across those 100km.

‘I know you can do it,  and with every step you take, just remember, you’re helping those that need it most. So , thank you, and good luck.’ 

The Gurkha Welfare Trust has been supporting Gurkha veterans, their families and communities in Nepal during the outbreak by checking on the vulnerable, distributing medication and clean water, and giving out financial aid.

Oxfam has been providing hand-washing facilities, clean water, toilets and soap in the most vulnerable communities, reaching over four million people across 62 countries.

The Trailwalker Relay begins on Monday and runs until September 27.

The new video comes days after it emerged Prince Harry has joined a helicopter club in California in order to take Meghan Markle and his son Archie out on family trips.

The Duke needs to practice flying in order to to keep his helicopter licence current, a royal insider told the Sun.

In 2013, the royal qualified as an Apache helicopter commander while serving in the Regiment Army Air Corps but left the military less than a year later to pursue charity work.

‘He’s very proud of that licence; he worked hard to get first the basic and then the Apache.

‘He’s hardly likely to be recalled for military service in England again but he wants to keep the hours up for personal use, so he and Meghan can just take off for expeditions if they want to,’ the friend of Harry told the paper.  

While it is believed Harry doesn’t own his own helicopter yet, the source added that there will be ‘plenty of rich benefactors’ who would be happy to lend Harry their choppers because they would ‘love the royal association’. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down as senior royals in March and moved to Vancouver Island, Canada.

They spent some time in 39-year-old Meghan’s native Los Angeles before moving to Santa Barbara, California, where they are currently living in an £11million mansion with son Archie, one. 

Last month, the couple signed a £112million Netflix deal that ‘could include a documentary on Princess Diana’. 

An insider told The Mirror the documentary will focus on Diana’s family history and heritage, but voiced fears over it widening the rift with brother William.

Rumours of Harry and Meghan seeking to gain a foothold in Hollywood have run rampant ever since the couple announced their plans to quit as senior royals, seek financial independence and move to North America in January.

Meghan’s first post-Megxit job in showbiz was as a narrator of the Disney Plus docuseries Elephants, which came out in April.

The Los Angeles native nabbed the job after Harry bragged about her voiceover skills to Disney chairman Bob Iger at the London premiere of The Lion King live action remake last summer.

Her fee for the project went entirely to the Elephants Without Borders charity – an organisation dedicated to conserving wildlife and helps protect the animals from poaching.

Harry followed in her footsteps by appearing in a new Netflix documentary about about the Paralympic Games called Rising Phoenix, which aired on August 26.

In 2014, Harry confessed he missed his role as an Apache helicopter pilot and would like to return to flying in the future. 

The Prince loved his five-month posting to Afghanistan in winter 2012-13 where he served as a top gun co-pilot, often providing top cover for medical evacuations. But he did not enjoy the social side of life on base at Wattisham, Suffolk.

As an Apache pilot, it was his regular job to provide cover from above as the teams retrieved casualties from the battlefield, often under enemy fire.

Matt Hancock admits Christmas wont be normal with Covid vaccine roll out unlikely before early 2021

matt hancock admits christmas wont be normal with covid vaccine roll out unlikely before early 2021

Matt Hancock today conceded that a completely normal Christmas is impossible this year.

The Health Secretary admitted it was unlikely a Covid vaccine would be rolled out before early next year as he said that ‘as close to normal as possible’ was the best that could be hoped for during the festive period.

And he used a grilling by Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on This Morning to warn even that would be dependent on rules being followed now to crush an up-spike in coronavirus cases.

Asked by Ms Willoughby whether people would be able to ‘hug grandma this Christmas’, he said: ‘I want Christmas to be as normal as possible. The more that we can control the virus now to stop the spread now, the easier it is going to be to have a Christmas that is as close to normal as possible.  

‘I know that is what so many people are looking forward to. It is what I hope for, for my family, and I just hope that we can get there. It means taking decisions now.’

The Health Secretary admitted it was unlikely a Covid vaccine would be rolled out before early next year as he said that 'as close to normal as possible' was the best that could be hoped for during the festive period.

And he added: ‘If this runs out of control now we will have to take heavier measures in the future.’

On the possibility of a vaccine, Mr Hancock said: ‘For the mass rollout we’re talking about the first bit of next year, if all goes well.

‘Hopefully in the first few months – there’s still a chance of it coming on stream before Christmas, but we’ve then got to roll it out and the first people who will get it are the people who are most vulnerable – people in care homes, older people.

‘There’s a series of different vaccines, but we are talking about – essentially, for it to have an impact on how we live our lives – we’re talking about the start of next year.’

It came as Professor Chris Whitty and Sir Patrick Vallance prepared to warn the UK is at a ‘critical point’ in the fight against coronavirus after a surge in cases as Boris Johnson faces a Cabinet war over reimposing lockdown measures.

The Chief Medical Officer and the Chief Scientific Adviser will deliver a stark televised address to the nation this morning, with Prof Whitty expected to say that the UK is facing a ‘very challenging winter’.

He will say Britain is currently heading in ‘the wrong direction’ with Government sources warning the UK is now in the ‘last chance saloon’.

Mr Johnson held talks with Prof Whitty and Sir Patrick yesterday as he draws up a virus battle plan that could see the country face more draconian restrictions for as long as six months.

The fact Mr Johnson’s two top scientists are addressing the nation today will likely be seen as an attempt by the Government to ‘roll the pitch’ for the PM to announce new restrictions.

It is thought Mr Johnson will set out new measures in a press conference as early as tomorrow and Health Secretary Matt Hancock today refused to guarantee that pubs will still be allowed to open at the weekend as he said it is socialising which is driving the spike in cases.

Mr Hancock said any new lockdown measures ‘will be different to last time’

Mother mocks Wayne Lineker’s bizarre girlfriend post with her own list of demands

mother mocks wayne linekers bizarre girlfriend post with her own list of demands

A single mother who thinks men are intimated by her success and how much she earns has mocked Wayne Lineker’s viral list of requirements for future girlfriends by releasing her own tongue-in-cheek criteria. 

Kerrie Berrie, 36,  of Hitchin, Hertfordshire, took to Instagram to release her light-hearted list with requirements including ‘having a six-pack’, making dinner every night and loving chick flicks. 

She added: ‘You must feel comfortable with having a partner that is more successful and earns more than you.’

The mother-of-one said she was spurred into action after feeling irritated by Lineker’s list of demands, which has since gone viral, particularly his suggestion that a future girlfriend should ‘give up her career’. 

The request struck a nerve, with Kerrie admitting she thinks men struggle with dating successful women. The bid manager did not reveal her exact salary but said it is more than £45,000.

Kerrie said: ‘I’m single and it’s terrible – we women are expected to do everything. Guys don’t message first, guys can’t carry a conversation. I get asked the rudest questions.

‘There is an element of truth in my parody as well because either you can’t earn as much as the guy or they think you’re there taking his money. It’s such double standards. I think men need to look at what they offer. That’s really lacking at the moment.

‘I’m not super successful but I do alright for myself. I have a nice house, I have a nice car, and my child is grown up. I do go to the gym and keep myself in shape, so they need to bring something to me as well.

‘I’m happy in myself and I don’t need them. I would like a partner, but they need to bring something back to me as well. It has to be 50/50.’

In the bizarre criteria posted on Instagram last week, Wayne stipulated his future girlfriend had to ‘give up her career, not want children, be able to cook ready meals, love R&B music and not watch chick flicks’.

But Kerrie’s own post asked her potential partner to be comfortable with her success, love her dogs, know the difference between ‘there, they’re and their’ and tickle her hair when watching films together.

Kerrie’s tongue-in-cheek list of requirements 

You must be an Adonis over 6ft with a massive knob and younger than me, not my age because that would look weird!

You must feel comfortable with having a partner that is more successful and earns more than you. Don’t worry though if you are a good boy I will give you an allowance and I will insure you on my Land Rover so you can drive a big car.

No baggage as my daughter is grown up now. But you must love my dogs, Evie & Bowie, like they are your own children.

You MUST be Educated enough to know when to use their, there and they’re. You MUST never use LOL or LMAO unless your arse literally falls off your body and onto the floor.

You have to enjoy the gym and go everyday. Having a six pack is vital because I want something nice to look at whilst you cook me dinner after a hard day at work. You can’t be obsessed with yourself or over confident though because that’s just so unattractive. When we settle down for some Netflix’s don’t moan about the chick flicks….if you wanna watch another action film then go to your mates, but not too often…maybe once a month? We can negotiate that. I’ll expect my back tickled and my hair played with whilst we are watching the film.

With 362 followers on instagram and 251 followers on tiktok, you’ll need to accept that I HAVE to reply to men’s messages as well as girls on all social platforms.

Parodying Wayne’s demands for ‘body definition’ on his ideal partner, unimpressed Kerrie asked for hers to be ‘an Adonis over six feet’.

Kerrie wrote: ‘I’ve not had much luck with the dating sites as we all know, so inspired by @waynelineker latest post here are my requirements.

‘Let’s start off like I’m normal…strong, nice loving personality. Now onto the more important things… You must feel comfortable with having a partner that is more successful and earns more than you.

‘Don’t worry though if you are a good boy I will give you an allowance and I will insure you on my Land Rover so you can drive a big car.

‘No baggage as my daughter is grown up now. But you must love my dogs, Evie & Bowie, like they are your own children.’

She added: ‘Ohhh and one last thing this is obviously a joke!!’ 

Speaking after sharing her post, Kerrie said she had grown tired of receiving sexist and rude comments from men on dating apps.   

Kerrie said: ‘The people who know me well know how ridiculous my post is. They know I’m quite a feminist and I’m all about equal rights, but I’ve had the worst luck dating.

‘I sometimes think my friends think I’m being too fussy and that’s why I haven’t found someone, but I’m not. There are complete weirdos out there.

‘I think some of these men need to have the treatment Wayne Lineker got and feel a bit embarrassed.  

‘My friends think [Wayne’s post] was all done tongue and cheek to start with, but knowing men I think at first it was genuine and then obviously he got called out and got embarrassed and had to backtrack a bit. The woman he wants doesn’t exist. She’s not out there. 

Kerrie claims she receives inappropriate messages from potential dates all the time – including a man who asked her if she’d rather ‘kneel or squat when giving him a b***job’.

One stranger messaged her on Instagram to ‘ask permission to masturbate with your picture’, while another announced he would never date her as she ‘was obsessed with bodybuilders and gym bodies’.

‘I was talking to a guy and we seemed to be on the same page morally and about what we want in the future.

‘It was going quite well and there were back and forth messages for a couple of hours. Then he said, ‘when you give a b***job, do you squat or kneel?’.

Kerrie shared a banana milkshake with Gary Lineker's brother Wayne when they met in Ibiza six years ago and had followed him on Instagram ever since - until she saw his post last week

Kerrie said would not reveal her exact salary but said she earns 'more than £45,000'

While she admits Wayne’s post was a joke, Kerries says there is an element of truth as she believes men can’t handle women who earn the same or more than them

‘The only way to date nowadays is to be on the apps. To be on the app you have to put up with the daily crap that men spout at you. You just wouldn’t do it in real life.

‘If you wouldn’t say it to a woman in real life face-to-face, then my advice is don’t say it. If you wouldn’t want your mum or sister to know what you’ve just said to a woman, definitely don’t say it.

‘I have now spelt it out on my Tinder bio. I feel like you have to spoon-feed men.’
