My mom Szyfra Chamita was born in Chrzanow Lubelski in 1932. My mom
died of ovarian cancer in 1995 so I can't ask her any more questions,
and apparently, I didn't ask enough.
I am writing a book about my parents before, during and after the
Holocaust that they survived. This book is going to be self-published.
It's just for my family, my daughters, my granddaughter and cousins,
aunts, uncles. etc.
My dad told me that my mom didn't go to school before the Holocaust.
She was 8 when my grandfather and 3 uncles were killed. She lost most
of her family so quickly. The only one left was my grandmother, my
mom and one out of 4 uncles.
My question is why wouldn't my mom have gone to school?? Did they not
allow Jews to attend school in Chrzanow?
After she survived the Holocaust with my grandmother and uncle, my mom
went to school in Krasnik at 12 years old.
