Marina was born in Ukraine, but the exact year is unknown. Because she spent the first few years of her life during World War II in a German concentration camp, her birth certificate has been lost forever. Her best guess is that she was born in 1939.
In this short excerpt from her Legacy Video, Marina recounts her family’s time between 1941-44 when they were interned by the German army, not far from the village in Ukraine where they were captured. Although her stories are horrific in scale, the ending is a happy one as all of her family members survived!
Recorded in July 2015 in New York City, Marina’s strength and tenacity are evident throughout her entire Legacy Video.
