Honored to present a talk by Holocaust survivor Mrs. Sonia Klein

Born in Warsaw, Poland, Mrs. Klein was forced to live in the Warsaw Ghetto until the middle of 1943, when she was taken to Madjanek and shortly after to Auschwitz.  In January, 1945, she was sent to Ravensbruk in Austria for a short period until she was sent to Malchow until February, 1945.  She was on a death march and liberated in April of 1945 by American soldiers in Mittenwald, Germany.  Mrs. Klein met her husband in Mittenwald, where they had their son and opened the first Jewish business after the war.  They settled and owned a business in Buffalo, New York.  Now a Brooklyn resident, Mrs. Klein makes it a priority to speak to students and other groups about her experiences.
