Oral history interview with Shoshana Roscynski and Stefan Roscynski

Oral History | Accession Number: 1989.67.73 | RG Number: RG-50.012.0073

Some video files begin with 10-60 seconds of color bars.

Shoshana and Stefan Roscynski (born in 1921) describe the mentality of the people who rescued Jews during the war; being taught to help others as children; Shoshana escaping the Vilmar ghetto after her parents were killed and going to a nearby village; meeting one another in 1942; the murder of Jews from a small town nearby called Nemenchini (possibly Nemencine, Lithuania) in 1941; building bunkers to hide Jews during the war; having their first child in 1948 and another in 1950; escaping from Russia and going to Israel; and getting little recognition as Christian rescuers until recently.
