Cyla (Tzila) Yoffan (Dworezke) was born in 1930 into a Zionist Orthodox family in the


city of Iwje. During the years of German occupation many members of her family were


murdered in the killing fields of Iwje. She survived along with her parents, her sister and


her cousin, who her father saved in the killing fields, and they were transferred to the Lida


ghetto. Several months later, in the spring of 1943, Tzilas family succeeded in escaping from


the ghetto and reached the family camps of Tuvia Bielski. The family was liberated with the


liberation of the area in the summer of 1944.


After months of wandering through various European countries, Tzila immigrated to


Israel. Tzila enlisted in the army in 1948. There she met her future husband, Shaul Yoffan.


They built their home in the city of Givataim, and had two children, 10 grandchildren and


a great-granddaughter. Over the years Tzila has worked to preserve the memory of the


Holocaust, meeting with teenagers and recounting her experiences during the Holocaust.


She is active in Ezra Dagans Witnesss Theater.


This film is part of the Witnesses and Education series. In this series, survivors recount


their life stories - before, during, and after the Holocaust. Each title is filmed on location


where the events originally transpired. The film was produced by the International School for


Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem with the cooperation of the Ministry of Public Diplomacy


& Diaspora Affairs, and with the generous support of the Conference on Jewish Material


Claims Against Germany, ICHEIC Humanitarian Fund and Adelson Family Foundation.
