top photo: Rosie ("Ratzah") Davidovits and Bela Slomovits in about 1940. Helen Grossman Dub was the third of nine children--eight girls and one boy. Helen was born in December 1920 and was therefore twenty years old when the family was deported from Vinif to Poland by Hungarians in 1941. These are her two older sisters, who were married. Ratzah was born in 1916 and Bela was born around 1914. Bela lived in Bichkiv. Ratzah died at Belzec in September 1942 along with her two small children.
