Story of survivors

When Sława Wołosiańska was asked: “Why did you save Jews?” she always answered: “Me? Jews? I did not save Jews, I
saved people,
my friends and acquaintances.”

39 people were hidden for 22 months in the cellar under Wołosiański’s home in Drohobych. All of them survived German
occupation of the city, most of them survived the Second World War. Their descendants live all over the world.
