Author - Teodora Verbitskya
Very little is known about Teodora Verbitskya. What we do know we glean from her writings and from her daughter, Nadia Werbitzky (the artist).
According to her daughter, Nadia, Teodora recorded her years of labor camp interment for many reasons:
To hopefully set right the facts surrounding the death and destruction of people and property.
For her children and others to know what had happened to them (her family).
For her children to survive and (should she pass), to understand what she was thinking at the time, and to comprehend why it was she made certain choices, for herself and for others during an impossible war.
To preserve the memory and dignity of those who lost their lives.
For her own sanity.
To chronological horrific situations and experiences in order during the course of events also helped her to mark the passing of time in days, months and years.
So she could remember, should she survive, what she survived!
