Narrative: Edith Webber left the shtetl of Tomaszów with her parents to live in England. Because of her husband's heart condition, they moved from London to Leeds at the beginning of World War 2. They had three daughters: Jeannie Berger, Sandra "Sandy" Kaye and Joyce Denning. Out of Edith's family who stayed in Poland, only one person survived (Ithzak Werber). He was deported, jumped out of a train through floor boards, was shot at, but escaped through the forest and got to Palestine during World War 2.
