Oral History | Fortunoff Collection ID: HVT-21

Videotape testimony of Doni S., who was born in Minsk, Russia, in 1900, and moved to Poland after the Revolution, and his wife Anna S., who was born in 1915. Mrs. S. describes how they met and married; Mr. S. describes his untroubled prewar life in Poland. They tell of their transport as slave laborers, along with their two small children, to Luban; the murder of their eighteen year old daughter, who had remained with her grandmother; their flight to the forest; and their life in hiding there, where they lived for two years with their two surviving children. They note they were hiding with Ralph F. and his parents at one point. They also note the start of their postwar lives in the United States.
