Leah Johnson (aka Leah Bedzowski) was only 18 when the Nazis invaded Lida, forcing the town’s Jews into a ghetto. Leah and her family escaped with the help of a guide sent by Tuvia Bielski and joined the Bielski brigade in the Naliboki forest, where they survived until the end of the war – and where Leah met her husband Velvel “Wolf” Yanson (bottom middle of above picture).
