A paramedic who recently returned from working in a field hospital for Ukrainians said that some refugees’ stories remind her of the stories of Holocaust survivors.

Magen David Adom Paramedic Katya Korshenbaum was stationed in western Ukraine. She and another medic treated patients with a variety of conditions.

In a video, Korshenbaum also said that patients expressed gratitude.

Magen David Adom, the Israeli national EMS organization and blood bank service, has been staffing the field hospital and has sent stocked-up ambulances.
