Story of Rescue - The Firuta Family

The Bonders – 14-year-old Józef and his 18-year-old sister Junia – escaped from the Skałat ghetto in the old Tarnopol voivodship in 1942. They came to the farm owned by the Firuta family in the village called Ostra Mogiła. The farmers were hiding them till the liberation in 1944. After the war they lost contact. The Firutas were resettled to Lower Silesia. The Bonders emigrated to the USA. Recently they found and met one another.
