Holocaust Survivor Talk: Eva Brettler

Eva was born in 1936 in Cluj, Romania. In 1940, Nazi Germany annexed this part of Romania to Hungary. When Nazi Germany invaded Hungary in 1944, Eva and her mother hid under false names. They were soon discovered and deported to Ravensbruck Concentration Camp. Her mother did not survive the journey to the camp. In March 1945, Eva and other inmates were sent to Bergen Belsen, where she was eventually liberated by British troops. After liberation, Eva ended up in Sweden. Eva’s father survived and had remarried and had a son. He found her through the international Red Cross, and she returned to Hungary in 1947. Her family immigrated to the United States in 1957. They settled in Los Angeles where Eva married a fellow Holocaust Survivor and raised four children.

Holocaust Survivor talks last 45 minutes to an hour, and end with a question and answer session with the Survivor.

Holocaust Survivor Talk: Martha Sternbach

Martha Sternbach was born in 1925 in Szerencs, Hungary. She enjoyed a peaceful life with her family until Nazi Germany invaded Hungary in 1944. Within a few months, her family was forced to live in a ghetto. After a short time in the ghetto, they were sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau. Upon their arrival, the camp authorities selected Martha and one of her sisters to work. Eventually the two were separated from each other, and Martha went to work in a munitions factory. Towards the end of the war, Martha and other inmates were sent on a death march but were soon liberated by the British. She returned to Hungary where she found some relatives, but all of her immediate family had perished. Martha settled in New York where she married. They raised their three children in New Jersey. She has been living in California since 2016.

Toward the end of the war, they were caught and sent to a concentration camp in Sered. They remained in Sered until the Soviet army liberated them in April 1945. After the war, Eva married and had a son. They lived in Slovakia until 1969 when they immigrated to the United States.
