This is excerpt is >from the book of Dokshytsy in Belarus, a small town 69 miles
north of Minsk. In "The Death of a Martyr Chaya Bloch," Zvi Markman recounts the
weeks after the German occupation during which Chaya's pregnant sister, Khayke, is
summoned to appear before the Gestapo. Wanting her younger sister to live in order
to have the child, Chaya decides to turn herself into the Gestapo in hopes they
will mistake her for Khayke.
