Abstract

This is an oral history interview with Holocaust survivor Nathan Snyder. Snyder was born in Staanesti, Bukovina, in 1926, and lived there with his family until 1941, when Germany invaded the Soviet Union. His family's town was occupied by Ukrainians, who killed all of the men, including Snyder's father, and deported the women and children to the Czernowitz ghetto. In 1944, after the Red Army drove the Germans out and reestablished control over the region, Snyder joined the militia and, later, the Soviet Army. He moved to Israel in 1951, where he met his wife, and then immigrated to the United States in 1958. Snyder describes his experiences in the Czernowitz ghetto, as a soldier in the militia and army, in Israel shortly after that country's establishment, and his business in the United States.
