Summary An interview with Sylvia Feld and Nancy Fordonski, a Holocaust survivor, conducted by Charlene Green. Sylvia Feld and Nancy Fordonski grew up in a large family of ten children in Zloczew, Poland. Following the Nazi invasion in 1939, Sylvia and Nancy, along with their mother, father and several siblings, fled to the nearby town of Zduńska Wola, where two of her sisters lived. Following a brief stay there, Sylvia, Nancy and one of their brothers went to stay with their grandmother in Szadek, Poland. Nancy and her family returned to Zduńska Wola where they remained in the ghetto until 1942. When the Germans liquidated the Zduńska Wola ghetto in 1942, Sylvia, Nancy and another sister were sent to the Lódz ghetto, and many of their other family members were deported and murdered. Following the liquidation of the ghetto in 1944, they were sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau. After a brief time, they were shipped to Stutthof and then to Dresden. Following the bombings of that city, Sylvia and Nancy were sent on a forced march to Theresienstadt. During the march, they escaped and hid on a farm near Karlsbad (Karlovy Vary) where they were liberated by the American army
