Abstract:

Memoirs of a Jew born in Michalovce in 1930. Describes anti-Jewish measures in Slovakia from 1941 and the deportations in 1942. Aliza attempted to escape to Hungary with her sister, but failed. The Ressler family then went into hiding, but was discovered; they were saved from deportation by Aliza's faked appendicitis attack and her father's bribing a doctor to perform an operation so that they could remain in the town. In 1943 Aliza and her two sisters fled to Hungary; in April 1944 they returned to Slovakia, and in September they fled with their parents to the forest. The family was hidden on the farm of Vincent and Anna Tokoly, who also hid other Jews, and then on another farm; however, the second farmer betrayed them. They were arrested and imprisoned, but escaped and returned to the Tokoly farm, where they remained until the liberation. The family emigrated to Eretz-Israel in 1947.
