FC: Holocaust Survivors By:Jessica Daily Kristen Bullard Anthony Best Aliyah Gooden

2: Birth Date: May 9, 1930 | She wasn't ever at any concentration camp, but she was forced to live in a ghetto in Kopechince when she was 5 years old. And was almost taken to an extermination camp at the age of 13. | She is still alive today | Alicia Appleman-Jurman

3: Alicia Jurman’s father got killed by the German soldiers. In June of 1941, the Germans broke their pact with the Soviets and swept through eastern Poland on their way to Russia. In Buczacz, a decree was made that all of the Jewish men were to go to a central place and "register". What really happened to the leaders of the Jewish community was, they were detained and taken out to a large meadow called the Fador and killed by firing squads. The truth was, these fathers had been killed to render the remaining Jews leaderless so that the Germans would be able to have more control over those still alive. | Alicia's brother was killed by the Nazis. Zachary was 17 years old. Zachary's anger at not being able to do anything led him into loosely organized resistance activities. He became active in a group of friends who were trying to find a way to fight back. Then one day Zachary was betrayed by a Polish friend. He was caught and hung right in front of the police building for everyone to see. Alicia then swore on her brother's grave that she would protect her mother and little brother with her life. | Alicia's mother was wounded in the initial attack from the Germans recapturing Buczacz, S.S. men came, dragged them out, and would have shot Alicia if her mother didn't put herself between her and the bullet, leaving her with: "Alicia, You must live." The S.S. man then ran out of bullets and brought her to jail. | The Germans broke into the house and rounded everyone up. She was headed towards what everyone assumed was an extermination camp. Someone on the train separated some bars in a window and pushed some of the children out of the window. Alicia was pushed out, and although injured, followed the tracks back home. | Her Story
