The one-time Polish teacher was arrested by the Gestapo and sent to Auschwitz in 1942 for holding underground lessons. After they invaded Poland in 1939, the Germans had banned anything beyond four years of elementary education as they tried to crush Polish culture and the intelligentsia.
Dobrowolski was later moved to the concentration camps of Gross-Rosen and Sachsenhausen, where he was liberated in 1945.
The Germans killed at least 1.1 million people at Auschwitz. Most victims were Jews, but many non-Jewish Poles, Roma and others were also killed.
