Oral history interview with Lyubov Abramovich

Oral History | Accession Number: 1995.A.1283.19 | RG Number: RG-50.378.0019

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

Lyubov Abramovich begins by describing the second day after the war began when the town of Slonim was bombed; running with her child and being met by Wehrmacht troops who luckily paid them no attention; her pre-war life when the area was part of Poland, her religious upbringing, and attending Jewish schools where teaching occurred in Hebrew and Yiddish until the advent of Soviet rule in 1939; the seizure in July 1941 of her husband, who was taken to a nearby square, beaten, and taken away in a truck never to be heard from again; the death of her one year old baby from diphtheria; her parents being taken away during a pogrom while she hid; how losing everything resulted in her desire to join the partisans; taking weapons from a barracks and giving them to partisans; being in the Voroshilov unit; and her strong interest in memorializing Holocaust events such as the location where her husband was murdered.
