Description
 

This is the story of a young boy and of his parents caught up in World War II and in the Holocaust. It describes the events that impressed themselves upon the boys memory, as remembered by him as much as 75 years later. It recounts stories of life in the Polish ghettos, and of hiding from the Nazis and their collaborators. It describes the horrors he has witnessed, the narrow escapes he has had trying to save himself from being sent to the extermination gas chambers, and his life on the run. Finally, the book describes the return of the boys life to normalcy after the end of World War II.

Ted Dolotta was born in 1934 in Warsaw, Poland. His father was a lawyer, a solo practitioner, and his mother had her own business, providing typing, printing, and duplication services, as well as translation services.

The family stayed in France for five years, where Ted went to highschool, and they eventually came to the United States in 1951. Ted went to college at Lehigh University and to graduate school at Princeton University. While there, he met and married his wife, Barbara. Ted was awarded a one-year NATO postdoctoral fellowship, which he spent at the Institute for Applied Mathematics of Grenoble, France (IMAG). Upon his return to the United States, he was a member of the faculty and of the senior staff at Princeton University for seven years.

He then worked for a small company he started called Princeton Time Sharing Services for five years, Bell Telephone Laboratories for eleven years, and a Japanese company called SoftBank for eighteen years. He retired in 2002. He has three sons and five grandchildren. Before his wife died in 2014, he promised her he would write and publish Wartime Vignettes.
