Israel (Lulek) Bron

Krakow, Poland

Lulek was born in Krakow, Poland as one of six children. He was only fourteen when the war started. Through luck and optimism, he survived eight camps, including Auschwitz and Bergen- Belsen. He didn't dwell on the past, but with his indefatigable sense of humor, he looked forward to the future. He felt privileged for the life he was able to make in Australia with his wife, children and grandchildren. He left a lasting legacy; the importance of family and community, acting honestly and working hard to help others. He was committed to passing on the lessons of the Holocaust, stressing the need for tolerance and justice.
