I was lucky enough to have many conversations with Mr. Kubic. What a wonderful, amazing man. He was a survivor of the Holocaust. He was a radio man. At one time he was standing in the gallows waiting to be hung with 2 other men when someone found out he knew about radios, and needed him. The camp he was in was mustered together, and being marched to a ship where his captors intended to load them, and then sink it in order to kill them all when the Americans liberated them. Mr. Kubic told me he weighed 90 pounds when rescued. Anyone who knew them would remember he was a large man, over 6 feet tall. He showed me his tattoo they put on him, and said Mrs. Kubic had one too. I don't know as much about her story. He was very, very proud of their daughter, Yolanta, and their granddaughter. I don't remember why they came to Miles City, though I do vaugely remember that they were sponsered by HRH, I can't gaurantee that. An amazing man.
