  •  My father believed in a Jewish homeland and sent money to Palestine to plant trees and establish settlements there.
  • When I was 10, I was sent to a school in nearby Oradea because our village had only elementary schools. I missed my family, but studied hard, and swam and ice skated for fun.
  •  Though we heard about the roundups of Jews after the Germans invaded Poland in 1939, we felt safe in Romania.
  •  We were forced into the Oradea ghetto in May 1944, and then deported to Auschwitz.  The prisoners were asked to entertain the German soldiers at Christmas; I danced to the music of the ballet Coppelia in a costume fashioned from gauze and paper.
  • Sophie and her sister escaped while on a forced march in February 1945. Her mother and father perished in the camps. In February 1949, Sophie immigrated to the United States.
