Varda H. Holocaust testimony (HVT-90) interviewed by Laurel Vlock

Oral History | Fortunoff Collection ID: HVT-90

Videotape testimony of Varda H., who was born in Czernowitz in 1915. At the time of the German occupation Mrs. H. and her husband were in the Ukrainian town of Kamenet︠s︡-Podolʹskiĭ. She describes the massacre of the Jews in Kamenet︠s︡-Podolʹskiĭ; the difficulties she and her husband encountered in making their way back to Czernowitz; the ghettoization of Czernowitz, where Mrs. H. remained for the next three years, witnessing frequent deportations; and her postwar life in Israel. As Mrs. H. had difficulty expressing herself in English, the interview was ended after twenty-six minutes.
