The Russians took us - in one way we were lucky - and they sent us to Siberia We travelled 13 days & 13 nights - without food. Hot like crazy, the pushed us in, a whole bunch, only a little window.

Lucky we had a little food from Shabbos. Momma's brother - he was a Lemberg citizen - him they didn't touch - Ma told him to bring us the cholent to the train.


On behalf of my brother and sisters and all our children, thank you Alan for your sensitivity and skill. You have preserved a legacy. I hope you will continue to do so for others.
