With a hand on her
chest, 82-year-old Rivka Fringeru battled back tears as she reeled off a
list of names she has rarely voiced in the past 70 years: Her father,
Moshe, then her mother, Hava, and finally her two older brothers,
Michael and Yisrael.
All perished in the Holocaust
after the Harabju family from Dorohoi, Romania, was rounded up in 1944
and sent to ghettos and camps. Only Rivka and her brother Marco
survived, and like many others, they spent the rest of their lives
trying to move on and forget.
