Sonia Kaplan "My Endless War...and My Shattered Dreams"
Sonia recounts her terrible memories of living as a Jewish woman during the Nazi regime, struggling for her survival. She experienced hunger, degradation, loneliness, but the most inhuman act of Nazi brutality, was the murder of her family. Now alone she had to make a decision: give up or survive. For her the choice was simple, survive. She spent much of war in hiding. Eventually she was helped by Russian partisans whom she lived with in the forests of Eastern Europe. She survived and was able to immigrate to the United States where she started her new life of hope and happiness, though her experiences during the war have always made her life challenging, but with three children, six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren she has come to realize her struggle was worth it.
