"Grandma Pearl was born to Abraham and Eva Kudimore in December of 1879. The Kudimor's lived in the town of Savran, located in the province of Podolski-Goberna. The province was in The Pale in the Ukrainian region of Imperial Russia." So begins the story of my grandmother, Pearl Kudimor Golokow. She escaped from Russia in 1906 with three little girls. Interviewed not long before her death in the 1973, I used the transcripts to write down her stories. Her memories cover the escape from Savran; arrival in Ellis Island; early years in New York City, and the move to the Ferrer Colony & Modern School in New Jersey in the 1930's.
