Viola Dubov was born August 29, 1920 in Veleisevlush,Czechoslovakia. She was one of five sisters. After deportations of Jews began in April 1944, Ms. Dubov, who had been in a hospital in Budapest, was hidden in the home of a Christian woman until Budapest was liberated. Her father, mother and one sister perished, and three sisters survived. Ms. Dubov inadvertently traveled to the Soviet Union, was forced to escape illegally over the Carpathian mountains, and was able to find her sisters, two of whom were in a displaced persons camp in Germany, and the other in Sweden. All four sisters immigrated to Los Angeles in 1947. Ms. Dubov and her sisters all married and settled in California.
