She recalls her five brothers; attending teacher's college in Thessalonikē; marriage; her daughter's birth; divorce; her immediate family escaping to Palestine, via Turkey after German invasion; not leaving with them due to her illness; obtaining false papers; her brother's friend hiding her and her daughter in a nearby village; leaving because she feared exposing her rescuers; traveling by boat to Skopelos Island in June, 1943; teaching in the local school; detention by German troops; a German releasing her with a warning not to be outside too much; the Germans leaving for another island where they executed many, then leaving Skopelos permanently a few weeks later; sending her daughter to school in the United States; joining her there; and returning to Thessalonikē three years ago.
