Stefa (Sarah) Sprecher Kupfer - July 24, 1987


What was the village?

I don't know, I don't remember. We were in the air raid shelter. Together with other Polish people. At that point, we already had some color, we already had voices, and we looked like normal people, in fact, Momma became very, very friendly with another Polish lady who was there with her husband and her daughter...and this lady was making such plans after the war, the war will end, we'll go back to our home town and start a business together and do something and she was very disappointed that Momma told her later that we are Jewish and we are not going to go with her to her home town, we are going to Sanok and we are going to look if anybody is left and what happened. She couldn't believe it.


Because, we were nice people. Momma was a nice lady. And Jews "are not nice people." You know, we had this, they had this image of Jewish people being terrible in some way, I don't know why. Most Jewish people I know are very nice.
