She recalls her mother's death when she was 16; marriage in 1936; her daughter's birth in 1938; Soviet occupation in 1939; German occupation in 1941; mass killings of Jews; anti-Jewish regulations; many deaths from hunger and disease; hiding to escape round-ups in 1942 and 1943; her husband's disappearance; narrowly escaping execution when she refused to report for forced labor; fleeing with her daughter to the countryside; being hidden by non-Jews in a cave, then in an attic for ten months; telling her daughter stories to pass the time; and their release in March 1944 after the German retreat.
