In the factory, Chrystman created a shelter for the children of the elite of Piotrków. 16-year-old Jewess, Franka Berk oversaw 8 young charges. One of the useless children Chrystman protected in the children’s shelter was the future Chief Rabbi of Israel, Israel Lau. I spoke with Lau about Chrystman. He had no memory of him or the shelter. He said he was only 4-5 years old. My two first cousins were in the shelter with Lau. They knew of Lau. Chrystman could have been denounced for saving useless Jewish lives by Jews looking to curry favor with the Gestapo. He did what he did and more, just the same.
