In November, the Nazis forced the entire Jewish population of Lwow, including Dana’s family, into a ghetto established in the former Jewish district of the city. Dana’s father was able to organize false papers identifying Dana and her mother as Polish non-Jews. The two were able to escape from the ghetto with their new fake identities. They survived the remainder of the Holocaust in hiding outside of Lwow under these false identities.
