About Kseniya Gavrilova Broniatowska (Vasilina)

Kseniya Gavrilova Vasilina Broniatowska was born in Ukraine. During the Second World War, she was imprisoned in the Ravensbruck concentration camp for women. Due to his having been convicted by the NKVD, her future husband, Hersz Aron Broniatowski, was on the front lines of the unit that released the camp's prisoners. Kseniya returned with Hersz to Lodz after the end of the war, although they later divorced. In 1952, she returned to Ukraine with her two young children. There, she found that all of her family had been evacuated to central Asia. Furthermore, her father had remarried and Kseniya's stepmother refused to take her and her two children in. The famines brought on by Stalinist policies made times difficult, and the family was often cold and hungry. In 1954, the family moved to Stavropol (Russia), where they lived in the barracks and Kseniya's daughter lived in an orphanage. In 1957 the family moved to Rostov-on-Don, where Kseniya's daughter was tragically killed in a train accident. In 1963, Kseniya and her son moved to Batumi, Georgia, where she died in 1990 at age 65.
