I am a Ukrainian Jew, which means that I am a survivor. Those of my ancestors and potential ancestors who were not endowed with survival skills did not hang around long enough to reliably contribute to the gene pool. Ukrainian Jews who were not fortunate enough to emigrate to a safe haven, (like our wonderful country), and who survived the Russian pogroms, were mostly slaughtered by the Nazi mobile death squads. The village where my mother was born does not exist today; it was another victim of WW-II.
