My name is Yehudit Yerushalmi-Terris born in Czernowitz 1935 and live currently in Rishon Le Zion , Israel.

My parents Roza Engelberg (nee Kinsbruner born in Czernowitz) and my father Herman Engelberg born in Zastawna.

I n 1941, when I was only six years old, during the invasion of the Roumanian and German forces, my sister Frederika died becuase we could not obtain the services of a doctor to help her. In the same year, we were deported to Transnistria. We were sent to Moghilev and, from there, we marched in the snow, mud and rain to Shargorod where a ghetto/ lager was established. All of my family, except my Parents and myself, died from Typhus and hunger.

After the war ended in 1945, we returned to Czernowitz and lived in the Karolinengasse.

In 1947, when the Soviets allowed family reunion, we travelled to Bucarest where my mother's brother lived. His name was Emanuel Kinsbruner. He was a well-known journalist and was known by his pen name "Emanuel".

In January 1950, we made Aliya to Israel. My parents and 30 other families established a Moshav  called "Gan Soreq" near Rishon Le Zion. Some years later I married and moved to Rishon Le Zion. I have a son and a daughter and six grandchildren. In 1977 I became a widow after my husband died.

Some years later, I remarried and my husband is Alfred Terris. He is an Engineer, born in the US who made Aliya in 1971. Both of us worked for ISRAEL AIRCRAFT INDUSTRIES.

I am involved in the various activities such as the Bukovina Follow-On Generations, Soroptimist, Yad Vashem, Community Leadership in the Municipality of Rishon Le Zion.
