Show Summary Details


This chapter studies the situation of the Chernovtsy/Cernăuti Jews during the summers of 1940 and 1941, when hundreds of Cernăuti Jews were being deported from Czernowitz, and then fills in the gaps in the stories narrated by Carl and Lotte Hirsch, narrating the experiences of Sidy Flexor. Sidy, along with her husband Mischa (who died a few years before the authors visited the Flexors in Paris), fled Chernovtsy when the Germans advanced into Czernowitz. The chapter then takes a look at the evacuations and relocations of the refugees into the Soviet Union from 1941 to 1944.
