Edith was born in Kriesciatik, on September 11 1931. Her parents owned a ranch where they raised cattle and grew sugar beets. she had a brother, Jacob and a sister Martha. They also owned a gorcery store.
Edith loved to play by the river, during the summer with all her friends, swimming and playing, she would also go pick wild flowers with her friends Fritzie.
When Edith was 9, the police made them leave their home and walk to a place in Ukraine where Jews were concentrated. There were thousands of Jews there with them.
I just heard that 1000 Jews are deported to the ghettos everyday. You must stall until I plan our escape.
Edith and her family spent more then 3 years sheltered by Jewish families in Ukraine.
Edith's whole family survived the war. In 1959 Edith imigrated to America
