THE LIOZNIANSKYS

The Lioznianskys: mother and the three children left Vitebsk on the last train. Their father saw them off and left for the battlefront. The train was bombed on the way. The driver stopped the train and the people jumped out and hid themselves in the woods. When the bombing was over, the children were calling for their mother but got no answer. Ernst, who was only two at the time, did not understand what had really happened. However, his sisters, the ten-year-old Polina and the eight-year-old Yulia, felt enormous pain – they did not know what had happened to their mother. Their mother, Fruma Lvovna, was, in fact, wounded. Luckily, some people picked her up and took her to a military hospital.

The children were taken to Tambov region and sent to an orphanage.

"My sisters told me that we were treated well. Of course, I cannot remember that now. We were given clothes and food; my sister went to school – for this I would like to thank the people who saved our lives. Unfortunately, we do not even remember their names", - said Ernst Liozniansky.

When Fruma Lvovna recovered in hospital, her first thoughts were about her children. She had to find out where they were. Therefore, she started inquiring about them in all the orphanages where children from Vitebsk were. She managed to find her children but did not manage to take them away from the orphanage at once. After the recovery she continued working in that same hospital, which was located near the battlefront. Only in November, 1943, she took her children from the orphanage.

Their father was killed in December, 1944. The elder brother was also killed during the war at the battlefront.
