    Sophia Orlovsky Williams was born in Kiev to a Catholic mother and a Jewish father and chose to be identified as Jewish on the eve of World War II. Narrowly escaping Nazi capture during the war, she moved to the United States in 1952. Working as a draftsman, she was the first female to break into the traditionally male territory at EBASCO, then at Ford, Bacon & Davis, both of New York. She moved to San Francisco in 1955, where she was associated with Bechtel for thirty years until her retirement in 1985. She lives in Texas.
    Presents the World War II experiences of a Ukrainian Jewish teenager who narrowly escaped the Babi Yar massacre, flooding, bombs, and an abusive husband to find refuge in the United States in 1952.
