Who was your child of the Holocaust? What was their life like before? How were they victimized during this time? Did he or she survive? What were the circumstances of their death or survival?

The child I chose is Lia Borak. She was born in 1928 and she was a fraternal twin. Her sisters name was Mia. They were born in Lvov (Lemberg), Poland. The town was the center of a thriving Jewish community. In December 1941 Lvov was closed off and all the Jews had to move to the ghetto. The girls were twelve years old and their fate is still unknown. It is believed they were used for twin experiments.

Alexander Hornemann-Alexander was 4 years old when the holocaust started. His father was a executive of the Phillips Corporation, which helped provide a great living for him. They weren't really victimized for because of his fathers position in the Phillips Corporation. None of his family made it and he almost did too.Alexander and his brother, along with 20 other Jewish children, were chosen to be used in horrific medical experiments. In the fall of 1944, the children were transferred to the Neuengamme concentration camp. The children were injected with tuberculosis cultures and became extremely ill.On April 20, 1945, when the British were less than three miles from the camp, the sick children were put into a truck and brought to a school in Hamburg. They were injected with morphine and hanged. Alexander was eight years old.

My person was Lilly Klein.

Was a seventeen year old student. she lived
Matezalka, Hungary. She was born in September 29
1927.
Germans invade Hungary and they tried to brake the
allience with them but it was to late. In 1943 they finally
realized that. In 1944 German troops occupied the entire country.

Lilly and her family were rounded up and hered into a sealed -off
ghetto where they were kept for two months.
the end of June Lilly was sent on a train to go to a death
camp in Auschwitz but the tracks have been destoyed by emeny
bombing. Instead she went to a concentration Strasshoff in Austra.
She was forced to work to teh point of exhaustion.
The camp was liberated in April 1945, eighteen year-old Lilly was barely
alive.she was one of few to survive.

My child of the holocaust was Eva Beem. Before the holocaust, Eva's father was a school teacher. When Eva's parents heard about the Germans sending people to death camps, they decided that their family would be safer in hiding. As a result, Eva and her brother were sent to a village to live with a Christian family, where they were given completely different identities. Eventually a search started and Eva and her brother were found. Unfortunately Eva didn't survive the holocaust and was murdered as soon as she arrived at Auschwitz with her brother.

The child I chose was Gabriele Silten. She was born in 1933 in Berlin, Germany. There life before was normal. After hearing about the invasions she and her family moved to Holland but in 1940 the German's invaded. From then on she had to wear the yellow star and couldn't play with her non-jewish friends. But on June 20, 1943 all of her family including herself were arrested in a raid and then brought to the Westerbork transit camp. After being there they were transported to Theresnienstadt ghetto in Czechoslovakia where they were rarely fed and forced to work about 10 hours a day. Her job was to be a message carrier in an old age home. Before they could be transported to a death camp they were liberated and she and her family survived but were very weak.
