was a Polish-born American lawyer, author, and Holocaust survivor. Samuel Pisar was born to David and Helaina Pisar in Białystok, Poland. His father established the region's first taxi service. His parents and younger sister Frieda were murdered by German Nazis. Pisar was sent to Majdanek, Bliżyn, Auschwitz, Sachsenhausen, Oranienburg, Dachau and ultimately to the Engelberg Tunnel near Leonberg. At the end of the war, he escaped during a death march.
After the liberation, Pisar spent a year and a half in the American occupation zone of Germany, engaging in black marketeering with fellow survivors. He was rescued by an aunt living in Paris. His uncle sent him to Melbourne, Australia, where he resumed his studies. He attended George Taylor and Staff School (now Taylors College) and went on to attain a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Melbourne in 1953. After recovering from a bout of tuberculosis, he traveled to the United States and earned a Juris Doctor from Harvard University. He also held a doctorate from the Sorbonne.
