Oral history interview with Vera Chernyavskaya

Oral History | Accession Number: 2011.437.63 | RG Number: RG-50.674.0063

Vera Chernyavskaya, born in 1926 in Kholma, discusses the prewar Jewish population; the survival of Jews who joined the partisans; the execution of the town's remaining Jews; witnessing Jewish and Belarusian citizens suffering under the German occupation; the burning of villages; her own experience in which soldiers locked her and other refugees in a shed in Chistoluzhye and set it on fire; their rescue by Soviet forces from the shed; seeing the bodies of Jews who were killed in their houses in Ozarichy; and how her parents hid a Jewish family until they could safely transfer them a partisan unit.

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