Rokhl Zicherman lives in Los Angeles and is an Auschwitz survivor
from Carpathian Czechoslovakia. She loves to sing with her two
sisters who don't live very close, but they often talk by
phone. Here she sings In Auschwitzer Lager, describing a fate
common to many the many teenagers from this region who were
deported to Auschwitz in 1944: being separated from their
mothers who were killed at Auschwitz, often due to holding on to
younger children of theirs. She also sings a Holocaust 'Dem Milners Trern',
a Holocaust version of the song Dem Milner's Trern,
written by Mark Varshavski around the turn of the 20th century.
Gitu Cycowics (nee Friedman), an Israeli, a resident of
Jerusalem, from Carpathian Czechoslovakia and an Auschwitz
survivor, discusses her fear for when survivors are
gone. Previously aired on the Yiddish Voice Apr 24 2018 in a
program in honor of 70th Yom Haatsmaut.
Raye David (nee Shlosberg), now in Milwaukee, Holocaust
survivor from Vilna, Poland. Recorded end of 2010 and previously
aired on the Yiddish Voice in 2011.
Ann Monka (nee Khane Stolovitska), now in Northern New Jersey,
originally from Lida (לידע), survived in Bielsky Brothers camp in
the forest. She recalls the movie Defiance coming out, how she
and other Bielsky survivors came to a special premier at New York
Museum of Jewish Heritage, how everyone loved it. We play a
recording of her singing the Partizan's Song (Zog Nit Keyn
Mol). (The song was aired on the Yiddish Voice last week. A
longer version of the interview was previously aired on the
Yiddish Voice Jan 14 2009.)
