Abstract:

Malvina Lebovic was born in 1920 in Kalni, near Munkac, Czechoslovakia. She was the oldest of nine children. Her father was a butcher, the family was very poor and life was difficult. Her father organized a school for Jewish children because of antisemitism in school. In 1934 the family moved to Karlovy (Karlsbad) hoping for a better life. In 1938, after the Anschluss of Austria they moved back to Kalni but shortly thereafter the area was occupied by Hungary. At that time Jews started to be persecuted, her father and brother were taken to labor camps, Jews were frequently beaten and food was scarce. When Germany occupied Hungary, all the Jews were deported to Auschwitz in cattle cars. Mrs. Lebovic describes the conditions during the journey and arrival at Auschwitz. Her mother and younger brother were immediately taken to the gas chambers, she and two sisters to barracks. Later, in a group of 2,000, they were transferred first to Stutthof and then to Baumgard for hard labor. They lived in tents and slept on straw. Only 200 of the 2000 survived. All three sisters contracted typhus shortly before liberation by the Russians in March, 1945. They returned to Kalni, married and eventually made their way to Israel. After her daughter contracted polio they came to the United States for medical treatment and remained there.
