Raul Artal was born by breech delivery in a barn, hidden from authorities.
It was 1943 in Bersad, a concentration camp in a part of Ukraine called Transnistria administered by Romania under Nazi control.
Sometimes the Nazis would sweep through the camp on killing sprees, and Artal's parents would frantically hide him, as children and babies in particular were targeted for extermination. His parents would cover him so he was not discovered, and he was trained not to cry.
