So you arrived in Kamenetz-Podolsk in July 1941?

Yes, could be the beginning of July. See, we did not have a calendar, those things. We lived, you know, like animals, like animals. We slept on the floor, we didn't have beds, we had nothing. What we could pick up in a half hour--not document, not papers, not photographs, no nothing. They was asking us here, "Maybe you have some photograph?" Yeah, I had some, you know, what we were sending before the war.

To the United States?

Yeah. So, this is what is left from us.

So these are pre-war pictures.

This is pre-war picture. These are my father. This was--I was in Vienna in '63. This was me, my mom, and my cousin's wife.
