In spring of 1941, the Germans invaded Soviet-occupied Poland, forcing Jews into ghettos a few months later. In fall of 1942, Toby Levy and her family went into hiding until June 1944 when they were liberated by the Red Army. Today, Ms. Levy, a retired accountant and a volunteer docent for the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City, remains hopeful that the COVID-19 pandemic will not steal her last years just as the Holocaust stole her youth.
