Marta Pasternakova

This photo was taken on 1st May 1946, after the liberation of Presov. You can see my mother, Marta Pasternakova, nee Preisova as well as her sister Katarina Samolovicova, nee Preisova. They are the ones with the VOJNAsmrt banner. My mother and me survived the Holocaust in hiding and came back to Presov after the war. Our return was a bit delayed because the trains only started running in June or July twice a week from Bratislava to Zilina. In Zilina we had to wait for a day for a train from Zilina to Kosice and from there we continued on a horse carriage to Presov.
