There are many things we may take for granted like a piece of fruit. Holocaust survivor Lydia Kyrychenko Drake was five-years-old when she sent to a concentration camp. In this edition of StoryCorps Northwest she tells her granddaughter Katrina Zens about her liberation and tasting a banana for the first time. Both live in Moses Lake.

This episode of StoryCorps Northwest was recorded in Moses Lake as part of Northwest Public Broadcasting’s centennial celebration.
