Child of the forest

In the testimony Holocaust survivor Yona Bromberg gave to Eduardo Montes-Bradley, she recalls being herded to the market along with all other Jews in Rokitna. Soon thereafter, the SS surrounded the market with soldiers and machine guns. Suddenly someone yelled "Run Jews, run, they are going to kill us" and those who could flee towards the woods. "My brother and father weren't as lucky as my mother, my sister and me; they were killed, and we survived in the woods for eighteen months until Liberation.” From the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum film library.
