Faye Schulman (nee Lazebnik) was born to a large family on November 28, 1919 in Lenin, Poland. She learned photography from her brother Moishe and assisted him in his photography business.
She had four brothers and two sisters in her large, Orthodox Jewish family. The Lazebniks considered themselves Jews first and foremost, but before the Nazi invasion in 1941 experienced no anti-Semitism in their small town on the Russian border. A Jewish child growing up in Lenin quickly learned four languages: Yiddish at home, Polish at school, Hebrew in religious school and Russian around the town.
One of Faye’s sisters had two young children to care for and the other was sickly, so household chores were Faye’s responsibility. Faye credits this with making her physically strong and self-reliant. In addition, Faye took over the family photography business at the early age of 16, when her oldest brother, Moishe, a professional photographer, moved to another town. Faye’s photography skills would make her valuable to the Nazis — and give her the opportunity to document their atrocities.
When the Nazis invaded Lenin in 1941, Faye’s family was imprisoned in a ghetto. Her two older brothers were sent to Nazi slave-labor camps. On August 14, 1942, the Germans killed 1,850 Jews from the Lenin ghetto, including Faye’s parents, sisters and younger brother. They spared only 26 people that day, among them Faye for her photographic abilities.
After the liquidation of Lenin, the Nazis gave Faye films to develop, and she made extra copies. One of the pictures she kept as a testament to Nazi atrocities was a scene of the trench where the Nazis dumped bodies of her family and the rest of the Jews in the Lenin ghetto.
With her family dead, Faye no longer feared that her escape would endanger others. During a partisan raid on her town, Faye ran away and joined the Molotova partisan brigade, a partisan group made mostly of escaped Soviet Red Army POWs.
“This was the only way I could fight back
and revenge my family.” (CONTINUATION IN COMMENTS)
Even the smallest detail is mentioned in the Bible about Jesus Christ, what not mentioned is His date of birth and death because
Isaiah 9:5-7The Voice (VOICE)
5 It’s true. All the fabric of war will go up in flames: the troops’ heavy boots that stamped us down and their blood-soaked garb
Will all be burned beyond recognition or use. There will be a new time, a fresh start.
6 Hope of all hopes, dream of our dreams, a child is born, sweet-breathed; a son is given to us: a living gift.
And even now, with tiny features and dewy hair, He is great. The power of leadership, and the weight of authority, will rest on His shoulders.
His name? His name we’ll know in many ways— He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Dear Father everlasting, ever-present never-failing, Master of Wholeness, Prince of Peace.
7 His leadership will bring such prosperity as you’ve never seen before— sustainable peace for all time.
This child: God’s promise to David—a throne forever, among us, to restore sound leadership that cannot be perverted or shaken.
He will ensure justice without fail and absolute equity. Always. The intense passion of the Eternal, Commander of heavenly armies, will carry this to completion.
So how can we count His years when He's forever living, seated at the right hand of God? We're suppose to remember or celebrate Jesus everyday not every year!
