When the Nazis began liquidating the ghetto, Fania fled into the forest where she hid until 1944 when she was liberated by Russians.
Fania's life reminds us the depravity that man can sink to when they stop loving people. When asked which is the great commandment in the law Jesus said, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." (Matthew 22:37-39)
