From the collection of Israel Kaplan:
Chasia Nadel - Koren, a native of Krakes, Lithuania: her testimony about her fate and that of the Jews of her town.
She bases her testimony on information she received from a Lithuanian woman from Krakes and also Jews from the Kovno (Kaunas) ghetto who worked at forced labor.
Three pages, handwritten, in Yiddish.
Directly after the German invasion of Lithuania, the Lithuanians began to abuse the town's Jews; they beheaded the town's physician, [Baruch] Alperovic and displayed his severed head; they cut off the beard of the community's rabbi, David Goldberg; then the rabbi, the ritual slaughterer [Shabtai Farber] and [Reuven] the shoemaker were shot to death beside a grave they were made to dig for themselves. On July 27, 1941, the remaining Jews of Krakes were brought to the Kedainiai ghetto, and in the month of August all were murdered and buried in a mass grave. [Nadel notes the names of two of the Lithuanians who murdered Jews.]
Two months later in the Kovno ghetto she found a hiding place in the home of a peasant, where she remained until she was obliged to flee due to having been informed on. Close
