Born in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1952, Sarah Popowski is the daughter of Holocaust
survivors Paula Kornblum Popowski and Henry Popowski of Kaluszcyn, Poland. Having
avoided deportation by volunteering for hard labor in 1942, Paula escaped from the
labor camp with aid from a righteous gentile and hid with her sister in southern Poland
under a false identity. After marrying in a DP camp, Paula and Henry emigrated to
the United States in 1949. Sarah Popowski lives in Atlanta and recorded her oral history
interview at Kennesaw State University in August 2022.
