W Hour

The Azrieli Foundation | The Azrieli Series of Holocaust Survivor Memoirs


Arthur Ney, a twelve-year-old smuggler outside the Warsaw ghetto walls when the ghetto uprising began in the spring of 1943, fled to the countryside with false papers to work on a farm. Almost a year later, he returned to Warsaw and faced the realization that his family was gone. Under the protection of the Salesian Fathers as a “Christian” boy, he struggled with loneliness, guilt, fear and indecision regarding his “dual identity.” When the Warsaw Uprising began on August 1, 1944, then fourteen-year-old Arthur Ney joined the barricades and fought the Germans – W Hour is the code name for the Uprising.

Arthur Ney was born in Warsaw on June 25, 1930. He came to Canada in 1948 and settled in Montreal, where he married and raised a family.
