Among them was Dr. Icchak Josyfowicz, also a physician. The Ukrainian guards of the transport, benefited from his medical care. Wojciech got the permission of the Ukrainian district head, Kanal, to keep Dr. Josyfowicz with his family in Jagielnica, taking him to his house. The Hungarian doctor was allowed to practice medicine. In 1942 he returned with his family to Hungary and lived there until the liberation.
