Oral history interview with Anna Zinovich

Oral History | Accession Number: 2011.437.67 | RG Number: RG-50.674.0067

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

Anna Zinovich, born in 1933 in Mogilev, Belarus, discusses the establishment of “forbidden zones” from which citizens were forced to resettle during the German occupation; a cemetery in which carloads of bodies were buried in pits made by bombings; hearing gunshots after German soldiers take a group of Jews to an empty house; the betrayal of a Jewish family on her street by neighbors; the shooting of the family in their home by German soldiers; a family that moved into the house; witnessing a German soldier shoot a man whom he suspected of being Jewish based on the man’s physical features; and hearing about the hanging of Jewish children in Svisloch.
