If someone is dissatisfied, he should try to live during war!
Gertrúda Drozdová was born on June 21, 1928 in Bratislava. The first three years of elementary school she attended at the orthodox elementary school in Zochova Street in Bratislava. After the fascist takeover, this school was closed along with other Jewish schools. During the war she and her family had to constantly move. They were usually accommodated by their neighbors, who lived alone. These used to support the family also financially, since none of its members worked back then. Gertrúda and her mother managed to avoid deportations, but her father was deported into Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. After the war, Gertrúda was apprenticed to become a dressmaker and she tried to forget atrocities of the war. In 1955 she got married to active noncommissioned officer and together they had one son. Nowadays she lives in Ohel David senior house.
