Szmul was born in Radzilow, though raised in Jedwabne, where he survived the Holocaust. His story and that of Antonina's heroism is well-documented in many Holocaust testimonies and in Jan Tomasz Gross' ground-breaking book "Sasiedzi" about the Holocaust in Jedwabne, which also mentions the events in Radzilow. The book was released in English in April, 2001.
