Samuil Borisovich had to evacuate multiple times to avoid presecution from Nazis. His family faced many hardships including the loss of his younger brother. "The war caught me and all our family in Korsun-Shevchenkovskiy in June 1941. My father was called to the army, and my mother with three children were evacuated to the east. Our first accommodation was in the Rostov region. When Germans came nearer, we were evacuated further, to the Stalingrad region. There my younger brother died, he was three years old. When the Germans approached Stalingrad, we were evacuated to Siberia.” Donate and share our vital efforts and bring kindness and compassion to the last survivors of the Holocaust.

On December 30, 1940 Abram Ruvimovich was drafted into the army. In 1941 the war began, and for then 20-year-old Abram the fighting began in the famous Battle of Kursk. "In 1944, when our homeland was liberated,I found out how my family perished." Based on eyewitness accounts, on the eve of Yom Kippur 1942, several army trucks with German soldiers arrived in Bazaliya from Antoniny. They drank all through the night with local politsai [Nazi police], and in the morning the town heard terrible cries and screams. The Jews were kicked out of their homes, and thrown onto the trucks. The Germans were grabbing little children by their feet and throwing them onto the trucks. They were all shot in the woods.

“The war with Nazi Germany broke out on June 22, at 4 o’clock sharp. I was ten years old. Father, Isai Osipovich, went to the Front as a volunteer. The city was under siege. The windows had to be blacked out. Blue light lamps were used in the hallways. German airplanes bombed the city constantly. Heavy artillery was used; shells exploded everywhere and buildings collapsed. Soon my Grandmother Reveka died of hunger, and then Grandfather Solomon died. Before his death, Grandfather told me to take his notebook with the addresses of all our relatives. He worried that I would be left all by myself. My mother, Tatyana Solomonovna, died of hunger in May,1942 at the age of 36.  I was just a girl of eleven when I was left all alone. I thought that after the death of my mother my life was over. I roamed around the city until I ran out of my two bread ration cards, mine and my mother’s. Then someone, I don’t remember who, sent me to a Relocation Office. There they washed me, cut my hair and sent me to an orphanage.All our documents were lost, including Grandfather’s notebook with the addresses of our relatives.”- Irina
