SUNDAY, OCTOBER 5

Toby Levy was born into an Orthodox family in Chodorof, near Lvov, Poland in 1933. In 1939, Soviet soldiers occupied her town, which made life difficult for Jews. In spring 1941, the Germans invaded Soviet-occupied Poland. A few months later, Jews were forced into the ghettos. In the fall of 1942, her family went into hiding. The family was taken in by a Polish woman that was a customer in her father’s store. They remained hidden in a barn until the Red Army liberated the area in June 1944. The family came to the United States 1949.
