Mina Bod was interviewed on July 21, 2008 in her apartment in Holon and confirmed much information given to the author by Rosa Portnoi and Moishe Rozenbaumas.
Publishing the documents recently located in the Lithuanian Central Archives leads us to a document possibly for an entrance exam that she took for the year 1935/1936.
We will soon publish excerpts from her interview on our page Films and testimonies where she recalls the fate of her sister Dvoyre Bod who was killed trying to escape in the direction of Poland. The father of the author, who used to work as a tailor in the workshop of Zalman Bod, remembered Dvoyre as the most beautiful girl in the city. Dvoyre’s diploma, recovered in the file 1382 of the Lithuanian Central Archives will soon be published on this website under her Lithuanian name Dvaura Bodaite.
