Polish-American Jewish survivor of the Holocaust, who wrote a book, The Sky in One Piece (2004), about her family's survival in Europe during the rise of Hitler and their subsequent emigration to the USA.

Along with her parents David and Hela Symchowicz, Hania hid in a lean-to for two and a half years. After the war, the Symchowicz family tried to start anew in a small Polish town only to be saved again from a pogrom that killed dozens of Jewish families. They made their way to a Displaced Person camp and eventually to America.

She married Albert Podob in 1961 in New York City and they had two sons.
