Sonia Pressman Fuentes

Sonia, with Ivanna Holowaty, at a program on the Ravensbrück Archives at the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee on June 30, 2015. Ivanna, who is not Jewish, is a Ukrainian woman who, at the age of seventeen, was imprisoned, along with her parents, after the Nazis occupied Ukraine. Ivanna and her mother were sent to Ravensbrück, the concentration camp for women and children fifty-six miles north of Berlin. Her father, who was fifty-eight at the time, was sent to another camp, where he died three months later due to the hard labor he was required to perform. The family was arrested for political reasons as they opposed the Nazi occupation. Ivanna remained at Ravensbrück for about a year until the Russians liberated the camp. She lives in Venice, FL.
