Judith was only 9 years old when the Germans invaded Czechoslovakia in 1939. Her family lived in a Christian area and were the only Jewish family living there. In March, 1942 her family was sent to Theresienstadt (Terezin, Czech Republic) and two years later they arrived in Auschwitz. Miraculously, Judith along with her sister and brother survived, but devastatingly her mother and father died in the Holocaust.

On the 15th of May 1948, Judith arrived in Israel, which was a only 1 day old. Upon arriving in Tel Aviv, they were bombarded by Egyptian planes which gave her and the other Holocaust Survivors flashbacks of the war they had just survived. Surviving not only the Holocaust, she endured many wars and still found strength to continue her life by marrying another Holocaust survivor, having three children, and raising them in Israel.

Judith has been a resident of the ICEJ Haifa Home for Holocaust Survivors for the last 3 years. Hear firsthand what living in the home means to her.
