I was born in Sosnowiec, Poland in 1924. My parents had their own tailoring business. My two older brothers, my younger sister and I enjoyed a very happy home life where education was highly valued. I was sent to Parshnitz Concentration Camp in Czechoslovakia in 1942. My father and my brother Max survived and we were reunited in Bergen-Belsen. I was heavily pregnant when Nachum when I arrived in Australia to start our new lives. We have proven Hitler wrong by rebuilding our lives and enjoying many, many simchas. I continue to be surrounded by family, including my three amazing great grandchildren. Stand up and be counted when you encounter injustice.
