9th fort escape Christmas 1943 #lithuania

It is appropriate precisely on this date to post an article written by
Ya'arit Glezer. Ya'arit's father, Pinia Krakinovksy z"l, hand drilled
the hole in the heavy metal door of the 9th Fort in Kaunas so that he 
and his fellow inmates could escape - and that they did on Christmas 
1943.

Ya'arit's article "My Family and I"
https://www.litvaksig.org/information-and-tools/online-journal/my-family-and-i
mirrors a Litvak genealogy tale. I am honored to have her as my dear
friend and praise her efforts to continue to educate both young and
old about our roots.
