This chapter details the life experiences of Sylvia Green during Hitler's reign in Germany, as well as her post-war life. Sylvia was born in Germany in 1924, a country which her family had to leave in August 1939. Sylvia's brother was sent to a foster home in England, as it was thought that the danger was greater for boys. Sylvia also tells of her Second World War experiences. She was separated from her parents and was left with her aunt Mina. Sylvia details their life in the concentration camps Plaszów, Kabelwerk, Auschwitz, and Bergen-Belsen. She and her aunt were liberated on 14 April 1945 and were reunited with Sylvia's brother. The three then lived with the Urbachs in Lexington, Kentucky. At 23, Sylvia got married to Jake, a resident of Winchester, and gave birth to two children. She also tells of her faith and family life in Winchester as a Jewish Holocaust survivor.
