Afterword by the Author's Daughter, Rhoda Kuflik

The photographs in this book were taken in Poland and were saved by me in a miraculous way. The night that we decided to make our escape from Kuty was after a major pogrom that had taken place in our town. Our house had been ransacked by the Nazis in search of us. I was about 4 years old and realized that we were leaving home. I looked for something that I wanted to have. There were photographs thrown about in a closet, and I took as many as I could and put them in a jacket that was nearby. My parents did not take anything with them when we left our home except for the clothing they were wearing. My father put a jacket on, took me on his shoulders, and we started on our journey. The jacket that he chose to wear had my photographs in the pockets.

I would like to include several more photographs that I feel belong here too:


Wedding photographs of my mother Yetta and my father Eisig


My mother's youngest brother Yosel with his beautiful bride   My mother (front row, right) with her sisters


Family portrait: my grandmother Faige (front row, third from left) holding Sally on her lap. My mother and father are in the back row (centre, fifth and sixth from left)


Author's family portrait in Kuty


Author's relatives in Kuty


Baby photos of me in Kuty


My sister, Sally, and me   Father and me in Prague after the war


My mother, my father and myself at a window of our home in Kuty


My father and myself in the backyard of our house


My mother and myself


I also wrote a book. It is called, “I Remember”. It is the story of our miraculous journey and escape during the Holocaust. There are many more pictures in my book. It is available on Amazon and in the libraries of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and Yad Vashem.
