Oral History | Fortunoff Collection ID: HVT-63

Videotape testimony of Julia A., who was born in a small town near Zaleszczyki, Poland in 1932. She describes her happy, loving home life with her parents on a farm until the Russian invasion in 1939; and her family's escape to Lʹvov in 1940, where she first hid with her parents and later was sent by them to live on a farm with a Polish Catholic. She speaks of her life on the farm, where she pretended to be the Catholic niece of the owner and where she remained until the war ended. She describes her reunion with her father after the war and alludes to her present ambivalence toward Poland.
