    Brief Narrative
    Spoon saved by Frances (Fruma) Gulkowitz from her home in Korelitz, Poland (Belarus). Fruma and her family where interned by the Germans in the Korelitz ghetto in July 1941. Her mother was killed by the police. In May 1942, Fruma and her family were sent to Novogrudek (now Navahrudak, Belarus). Around August 1942, Fruma's brother Ben-Zion escaped with Murray Berger and others and joined the Bielski partisans. He later returned to the ghetto and rescued Fruma and Judes who also joined the partisans. After liberation by the Red Army, Fruma and Murray went to the Kibbutz Turda displaced persons camp in Romania and eventually to Kibbutz Anzio DP camp in Italy. Fruma and Murray married and emigrated to the United States in 1947. Fruma’s father, sisters, and niece perished in Nowogródek ghetto.
