Abstract:

Memoirs of Kaufman, a Jew who was born in 1932 in the town of Herţa in Romania (now Hertsa, Ukraine). Chs. 1-4 (pp. 23-94) relate her experiences of antisemitism as a child, as well as her suffering in the Holocaust. In summer 1941 she, her parents, and her six siblings were sent on a death march to Transnistria, during which many Jews perished from starvation or disease, and many others were killed by their Romanian guards. Some of Kaufman's family members died during the march, and those who remained perished shortly after reaching Transnistria. Kaufman wandered through forests and villages, stealing or begging for food, and then worked for a Ukrainian woman in Mogilev. She was betrayed by Jewish collaborators and sent to the Pechora internment camp, but escaped and returned to Mogilev. In 1943 she was allowed to return to the Dorohoi region, with other orphans. After the war she was sent by UNRRA to Canada, where much later, in 1995, she began to speak to audiences about her experiences.
