Gertler, Dawid | Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust

Name: Gertler, Dawid

Historical Note: Dawid Gertler was the head of the Lodz Ghetto’s Sonderarbeiteilung, the Special Unit of the Jewish police. He was regarded a popular figure in the ghetto. It is believed that he and Chaim Rumkowski, the Chairman of the Jewish Council were rivals. In 1943, Dawid Gertler was arrested and sent to Auschwitz. He survived the war. After the war, a group of Jews from Lodz living in Germany raised the awareness of the Central Committee of Liberated Jews in Germany of his collaboration with the German administration and accused him of corruption. The Legal Department of the Central Committee of the Liberated Jews in Germany initiated a legal proceeding against Dawid Gertler.
