Rifchu and her family were living normal happy lives until antisemitism first started running rampant like a disease throughout her small village in the Sub-Carpathian Mountains. Rifchu began to realize that her happy world was about to crumble. April 1944 Rifchu and her family were ripped from their home and taken to the Mukacheve Ghetto. The conditions were harsh and virulent but the entire family was alive and together. One month later Rifchu’s family was severed forever when they were taken to Auschwitz II- Birkeneu. Before Rifchu’s and her mother were separated her mother made Rifchu promise to take care of her sisters survive and to tell the world about the atrocities of the Holocaust. Rifchu had no idea how she was going to survive Auschwitz, the world’s largest Jewish graveyard, and Dr. Mengele. So she changed her name and spent every day determined to keep her promise to her mother.
