Describes smuggling food as a child into the Kovno ghetto [Interview: 1990]
Upon her father's death, Judith and her family moved to Kovno. Soon, they were confined to the Kovno ghetto, which the Germans formed in August 1941. Judith, her sister, and her mother were deported to Stutthof, where her mother died. Judith and her sister escaped from a death march out of Stutthof. They posed as non-Jews, and found farm work and eventual refuge in Denmark. Their brother survived Dachau.
