Zina lives by herself, she used to go to church but it’s now too difficult to walk so she tries to go on her birthday. She is 94.
When USSR took over Moldova Zina, along with over 200,000 others was sent to Siberia and worked in a concentration camp for 6 yrs where her family died. When all these people were loaded in cargo train carts it took over a month to get to Siberia. Many died on the way.
A day after Stalin died she along with many others was told she can leave for Moldova. When she returned, she built a house and communist government took it away shortly. On a second occasion, she was asleep in her 2nd rebuilt home and government came and once again, took it from her. She lost her home 3 times. She is a widow. Everyone who loved her has left her. She is visited regularly by Liuba from seminary.
