Voice/Vision Holocaust Survivor Oral History Archive

Agi Rubin - December 19, 1984


Let me stop you for a second, tell me a little about your family... before the war, how large was the family?

My immediate family consisted of my brother, who was nine years younger than I was, aunts and uncles, and my grandparents and uh, just everybody.

How large was your immediate family, aunts, cousins, uncles?

I would say about 60.

How many survived the war?

We were one of the fortunate ones because 15 of us survived, from both sides.

Of the sixty?

Yes, because I was fortunate enough to have my father back and from my father's side, my aunts and an uncle, one cousin, and one aunt from my mother's side who, their family was five sisters and brothers, and one survived. So, and that was called very lucky.
