On September 26, 1941, horse-drawn carriages stopped in front of the hospital and took the sick, and mothers who had just given birth and their new-born infants to the mass graves to be killed. Nehama was among the patients who was taken from the hospital to the killing fields. Freeda was also murdered on that day.
