"Autobiographies of Hyman and Molly Lader"

Document | Accession Number: 2018.33.1

Consists of one typed manuscript, 65 pages with photographs, entitled "Autobiographies of Hyman and Molly Lader," which was put together by the Laders' children in 2001. The manuscript, based on oral and written testimonies of the Laders, is split into two parts. Hyman Lader (born Chaim Lajdor) describes his childhood and family life in Łódź; the immigration of the rest of his family to the United States; working as a professional musician; his escape to the Soviet Union, where he married; his experiences in the Red Army; and post-war immigration with his family to Israel, Canada, and eventually to the United States, where he resumed his music career. Molly Biterman Lader describes her childhood in Tyszowce; separating from her parents in 1939 and escaping with her sister to the Soviet Union; marrying Hyman Lader; Hyman being drafted; and moving from town to town, alone and starving, before reuniting with Hyman.
