Chaya Szabasson Rubinstein was living with her family in Kozienice, Poland, when German troops invaded in September 1939. Within weeks, the Jewish section of town was declared a ghetto. In 1942, Chaya was deported along with her husband, daughter, and parents to the Treblinka killing center, where they were killed.
These maps add geographic context to Chaya's experience.
