Ben Baseman, was one of 200 Jews that escaped the invasion, and the ensuing genocide of thousands. Gary’s father fought in the forest as a partisan for over three years before returning to his hometown and to avenge his family’s deaths by killing the men responsible. Getting sentenced to death himself, Ben Baseman, miraculously escaped from prison and went on to meet his future wife, Gary’s mother, at a relocation camp.
