Rachel (Rae) Goldfarb
In 1941, the Nazis occupied Rachel Mutterperl Goldfarb's Polish hometown in present day Doksycy, Belarus. She was 10. The Jews were forced into a small ghetto which included the area where Rae's family lived. When mass killings began in 1942, Rae's mother hid the family behind a double wall between their home and what had once been the warehouse of the family’s fabric business.Rae and her mother, the lone survivors in the family, escaped from two different ghettos and later joined the partisan fighters. They were liberated by the Soviets in 1944.Rae and her mother came to the US in 1947. Rae married Harvey Goldfarb, another survivor, and raised two children.
