Oskar Knoblauch was born in Leipzig, Germany to a family of five. Throughout his childhood, Oskar played with everyone no matter their religious background. While he was a kid the climate in Germany was changing and the Knoblauch family realized it was time to move. They eventually acquired visas to move in with family in Poland, unfortantly that move would be costly. The Nazis invaded Poland and Jews were no longer created equal. The Knoblauch family had to work hard to survive the ghettos and work camps they were transported to.
After World War II had ended in Europe, Oskar and the family immigrated to Canada. He picked up the pieces and started a new life with his future wife, Lila. The two moved throughout North America before settling in Phoenix to be around their three children.
Oskar has inspired many people today with his stories and messages. In 2014, Oskar wrote a book, "A Boy’s Story A Man’s Memory," about his experiences during the Holocaust. He has visited over hundreds of schools in the Phoenix area and taught his message to thousands of students.
