Wordless: The Jews of Turka
19-minute documentary by Ukrainian filmmakers including 1992 footage shot by David Lee Preston
HALINA WIND PRESTON
On Friday, May 1, 1981, my mother was interviewed by WHYY-TV reporter Elma Andrews at the Holocaust monument in Freedom Plaza in Wilmington, Delaware. This short film clip is the only known footage of my mother speaking. She died in a Philadelphia hospital on Dec. 2, 1982, after cardiac bypass surgery at age 60.
"THE EARTH WAS BREATHING"
On Jan. 8, 1942, the second day of Ukrainian Christmas, a 16-year-old boy named Jaroslaw Klimentowych Dolnyawka witnessed a mass murder of 880 Jewish men, women, and children in a field outside my mother’s hometown of Turka-nad-Stryjem. I interviewed him standing in that field in October 1992, and the 15-minute raw footage is shared now for the first time. For details, read my Mother's Day 1995 article Speaking for the ghosts: A story for my mother.
Reuters producer Lewis Macdonald interviewed me from his office in Warsaw, and the story went viral: A group of young explorers had gone into the sewers of Lviv and found evidence of my mother's group that hid there for 14 months in 1943-44.
