    ... instrument, "The Farein", significance and content. Thus Zionist influence in the community transcended the number of its actual members. The Zionist Organization consisted of three major factions—the General Zionists, Revisionists, and Mizrachi. With the exception of the periods pre-cceding elections to the Zionist Congress, the three factions lived in complete harmony. In general the individual factions were not too partisan in their ideological distinction. care of the poor As the economic conditions of the Jews in Poland deteriorated (mainly as a re-suit of deliberate discriminatory legislation by the government) ever incrcas-ing numbers of Jews "took to the road." These destitute Jews would travel from town to town stopping in each one long enough to have a meal and make their rounds ...

    ... the roads and tracks. Our situation grew worse daily. Any Jew found in the forest or hiding in the farms was killed by them. Amongst the Partisans were a number of antisemites and many times things happened to the Jews and especially to the Jews in the fighting units. A number of Jews were killed by their friends and commanders with no reason or transgression. I remember a Jewish boy who was killed by a Russian Partisan from Moscow. The winter of 1943-44 was my second in the forest. Another enemy apart from the Germans, Ukrainians and the gangs was the unbearable cold and snow. Our movements were limited in the snow and we always left footprints while escaping from the enemy. During those bitterly cold days the Germans would increase their forays into the forests looking for the Jews ...

    ... The women from the "family camp" looked after the orphaned children and cared for our health and welfare, especially by Zisel Bratt whose daughters were off fighting. In the summer of 1943 a gang of armed camp was Avraham Fuchtik, originally from Mancvitch. a good man and kind towards me. Sometimes the Germans and Ukrainians, who knew all the tracks and forests, would hunt down the Partisan and "family camp". We would have to escape quickly from one place to another in the forest behind the marshes until the hunt was over and we could rebuild our camp. Our situation during the hunt in winter was difficult. We would have to escape without clothing or essentials, in the snow, with the bare necessities where we found a hiding place. We slept on the snow and ice without ...

    ... us with them to their camp. UNDER THE PROTECTION OF THE SOVIET PARTISANS During one of the visits by the Jewish Partisans, some Russian Partisans also came with them, who were soldiers in the Red Army who had stayed to fight on the German front under orders from Army Headquarters in Moscow. Among them was a Russian called "Kinor". I begged him to take us with them to the Partisan group. Kinor pitied us and said he was willing to take me with them but not my sister since it was a small unarmed group and could not tie themselves to other non-fighting people. My sister told me to go with them and at least I would be saved and find a safe hiding place. It would be easy for her to find a hiding place on her own and I would not be a burden to her. We decided it would be better ...

    ... during the horrific time of the Holocaust when I was left alone with no parents or family. A year after the liberation by the Red Army, completely destroyed by what the Germans had done to my life, I was in an institution for Jewish children who had survived the Holocaust, in Helinovak beside Lodz in Poland. On 6.7.45 I gave an attestation of my life during the holocaust, of how I survived and got to the Partisan camps in the forests, to the researchers from the "Jewish Historical Archives" in Warsaw. I had forgotten about this until recently when my husband Joshua found my attestation in the archives of Yad Vashem.l) At the time of my escape from the Ghetto I was a little girl with no childhood, no parents, no brothers, sisters or any other relations and left alone ...
