Across the Battlefields Back to Life

“Our situation lasted this way for almost a year and a half. Then the Russian Army, with a heroic struggle, retook the area. This was heralded by heavy bombardment from the air. The Russian military entered and liberated us from the hopeless situation. We were free.

“We already were depleted of strength, barely dragged ourselves with the help of sticks across the battlefields back to a life.”

– From “The Road of Suffering”, By Rywka Klein-Weinik, Story from the Dynów Yizkor book, 1949/50
