Jack Repp was born in 1923 in Radom, Poland. His family was interned in the Radom ghetto in 1941. Separated from them, he worked in a labor camp in Radom in 1941-42, a Radom concentration camp in 1942-43, an ammunition factor until the end of 1943, and was then sent to Auschwitz.
The American army eventually liberated him from a work camp in Staldach, Germany. He moved to the United States in 1949 to work for his uncle selling clothes, and settled in Dallas in 1950.
