Address on Behalf of the Survivors, by Zipora Nahir

State Opening Ceremony of Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Day ‏2018

My name is Zipora Nahir.
I was born in 1930, in the town of Hrubieszów, Poland.

We were a small family: my parents, Mariem-Szajndl née Weinstein and Mosze-Abraham Sztecher, my sister Sarah and I, Feigale, but we were surrounded by grandparents, uncles and aunts and many cousins.

The war broke out on 1 September 1939. Step by step, we experienced every phase of the occupation.
