Deadline NOW: Philip Markowicz

Friday, September 24, 2010

Philip Markowicz was 15 years old when the Nazis invaded his native Poland. His book, My Three Lives, recalls his early childhood, his miraculous survival of the Holocaust and his postwar life in the United States. Mr. Markowicz moved to Toledo in 1950 and owned and operated Phil's TV and Appliances on Sylvania Avenue until he retired in 1987.

In this riveting edition of Deadline NOW, Mr. Markowicz relates how he and his brother Henry survived the Lodz ghetto, where their father died of starvation, and the horrors of Nazi concentration camps, which claimed the lives of his mother, sister and nephew.
