LAKE SUCCESS - A documentary opens tomorrow about a Lake Success woman who hid from Nazis in an underground cave for a year and a half.
Sonia Dodyk and her family were living in the Ukraine during World War II. While the Nazi regime forced Jewish families into ghettos, Dodyk and her family hid out in a cave instead.
After six months, Dodyk and her family were discovered by the Gestapo and Ukranian police. After temporarily buying their freedom, they went underground again into a second cave for another year.
Dodyk is now a 79-year-old grandmother who lives in Lake Success. She recently returned to the Ukraine with a film crew doing a documentary.
"No Place on Earth" opens in Manhattan Friday and in Great Neck and Malverne next week.
