With his brother Yossel, Neuman was once transported to the Poznan sector, first to the Yunikowo paintings camp in might 1941, then directly to St. Martin's Cemetery camp, the place they got rid of gold jewellery and fillings from exhumed corpses. A string of focus camps undefined, each one extra oppressive than the final: Fürstenfelde, Auschwitz, Fünfteichen, Gross Rosen, Mauthausen, Wels, and Ebensee. in the middle of those horrors, the brothers stored their toes at the "narrow bridge" of lifestyles through protecting to their religion, their stories, and every different. in any case, basically Isaac survived.

His tale is a robust testimony to an unquenchable religion and a spirit attempted via fire.
