About Anna Pasternak:

Anna Pasternak was born in Zbydniow, a village in Southern Poland. In early October 1939, the Germans invaded, occupied the area, and a few days later Anna, her parents and two younger brothers were expelled from their home and ordered to go East. For eight months they lived in Janow, a small town near Lemberg (currently Lvov, Ukraine). In July 1940, Soviet soldiers came at night, loaded them into cattle cars and sent them to labor camps in Siberia together with thousands of others. After Siberia and some wanderings the family lived in Kazakhstan for four years. In 1946 they returned to Poland to discover the horrors of the Holocaust, yet the family never returned to their ancestral hometown. Anna came to the U.S. in 1955, where she became an active member of several Jewish organizations. She speaks several languages, has taught nursery school and for the past 30 years has been actively involved in the real estate business.
