Holocaust survivor speaks in Fort Mill

It’s a story Suly Chenkin has told countless times: at schools, synagogues and, on Sunday afternoon, at Unity Presbyterian Church in Fort Mill, which houses the Temple Kol Ami Jewish congregation. Chenkin was just 6 months old when the Nazis invaded Lithuania in 1941, turning her family’s life upside down. In 1944, Chenkin’s parents smuggled her out of their ghetto to safety in a potato sack.
