StoryCorps: life in Nazis-occupied Poland

Listen to this story
Since the StoryCorps Mobilebooth visited the North Country this summer, we've been spending a little time each Friday introducing you to some of the participants who got to document their stories interviewing each other. Today, we'll hear an excerpt from July, when Sunny Buchman, of Glens Falls, interviewed her friend Rena Bernstein from Brooklyn. Rena spent her very early years in southeastern Poland in a cabin hiding from the Nazis. Her parents were also in hiding, but they were in a grave-sized bunker under the basement of a workshop in the small town of Lesko. They remained there for two years. Eventually, Rena and her parents made their way to the U.S. and her mother wrote about life in Nazi-occupied Poland.
