Viera Goldbergerova

This is a photograph of my sister, Vierka Goldbergerova, around 1931 or 1932. The picture was taken in Zilina. Besides me, my parents also had my sister Viera. She was born in Zilina in 1927. We got along well, but not so much that we'd go about together outside of home. Each of us had his own friends. Unfortunately, my sister didn't survive the war. She went to the camp together with our mother, but we don't know at all where they disappeared. Despite us searching for them, their trail disappeared. During the war they interned our whole family in the collection camp in Zilina in 1942, and we were there up until the Slovak National Uprising broke out in 1944. During that time, between 1942 and 1944, when no transports were going, we worked in that Zilina camp.
