Address on Behalf of the Survivors, by Zehava Roth

State Opening Ceremony of Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day ‏2016

I, Zehava Roth née Brodman, am the sole survivor of my family.

I speak to you today on behalf of tens of thousands of children like me, who were uprooted from their protective and loving family environment, thrown into a hostile world and became "nobody's children".
In 1942, we lived in the Bochnia ghetto – my parents Moshe and Chana Brodman, and my brother Ben Zion, together with uncles and aunts, cousins and grandparents.  Although I was wrenched from my family at age 7, I still have early childhood memories – from before the outbreak of the war, and certainly from the period following.
