Abstract:

Lilly Friedman was born in Zarica, Czechoslovakia. Her father taught Hebrew. Jewish life and her relations with non-Jews changed after the Hungarian occupation in 1939. In 1944, after the Germans rounded up all the Jews, Lilly and her family were sent to Auschwitz. She describes arrival in Auschwitz, the selections and brutal murder of infants. After three days she was taken to Plaszow, Krakow with a group of girls for forced hard labor under brutal conditions. In September 1944 they returned to Auschwitz. As transports arrived, women and children were taken straight to the crematoriums. After three weeks she was put in charge of 400 of the healthiest girls who were selected to work as weavers in a factory in Neustadt. As the front came closer, the camp was evacuated. The girls were transported to Mauthausen and then marched to Bergen-Belsen. She gives a graphic description of the transport to Mauthausen by train under Allied bombardment, the casualties and their attempts to help each other. She describes terrible conditions in Bergen-Belsen and how the girls helped each other to survive. They were liberated by the English Second Army April 15, 1945. She slowly regained her health and met and maried another survivor. The family came to the United States in March, 1948. Her daughter, Miriam, adds her insights about growing up as a child of survivors. Lilly mentions the impact living through the Holoaust still has on her and her sisters.
